  • In this lesson we'll explore the wonderful world of Spanish style music with this piece composed in the style of Al Di Meola. This lesson will help you develop a strong alternate picking technique. One of he most important aspect here to get the feel of this track is to play as precisely and as clean as possible.
    Both of your hands need to be extremely synchronized.

    As far as the backing track goes, we'll go through the following chord progression:

    Am7
    Gm7
    Am7
    Dm7
    C
    Gm7
    Am7

    We'll use an A Phrygian scale throughout the track mixing it with the Phrygian dominant scale which is basically a Phrygian mode with a Major 3rd.

    Make sure to have the scale patterns memorized, and work through the licks with precision.

    Practice well!
