  • Hi GMC, this time I have a special treat for you: Blues Saraceno’s Style.
    This guitarist started his career at the age of 16, recording three albums in less than 3 years: "Never look back", "Plaid" and "Hairpick".
    Then he went on to play with Michael Bolton, Poison and Cher, among others. Due to the ever-changing industry of music and the raise of illegal downloads, he decided to compose music for TV and Motion Pictures only.
    In this lesson I prepared a funk in G mixolydian (Key C), the chord progression is:

    //: G7 / G7sus4 G7 / G7 / G7sus4 G7 ://

    I play one Lick every two bars. I use G7 arpeggio, G7sus4 arpeggio and G mixolydian scale. Pay attention to triplets and quintuplets and rythmics feels (Play with swing feel). The tempo is quarter= 90, and the techniques you’ll use are legatto and alternate picking.
    I hope you enjoy this lesson! See you soon!.

    G Mixolidyan:
