  • Hi GMC’ers. This lesson is a fragment of one of my own compositions. It’s a country-funk in A mixolydian. The chord progression is similar to blues´progression: I-IV-V

    A) // A7 / % / % / % / A7 / % / % / % //
    //D7 / % / % / % / A7 / % / % / % //
    B) // E7/ D7/ E7/ D7/ F7/ E7//


    The techniques are use:

    - Fingerpicking
    - Legatto
    - Sweep Licking

    The tempo is quarter= 120

    A) Part
    In the first eight bars I play a country´s rithmic over A mixolydian, and finish each part with a lick (please notice that I use open strings). Then play the same idea over D7 and repeat in the last four bars. I use A mixolydian scale, A pentatonic major, A blues scale and A7 arpeggio.

    B) Part

    In this part play half time tempo, and use E7 arpeggio, D7 arpeggio and F7 arpeggio.
    Practice each section slowly and coordinated, and increase the speed gradually.


    Enjoy the lesson! See ya!
