  • Hi friends!! Today I recorded a lesson based on the solo of Lian Gerbino’s hit song called "Where is Santa". If you missed this song I think that you have to check it now here!

    I had many requests about this and I decided to do it because I also like this solo and I love the song. First I would like to share with you something really funny that happened some weeks ago... a local radio station that usually plays Cirse's music discovered this song on YouTube video and they played it saying that it was our side project. Then they started to receive many mails from people asking for the song and for it being played again on the radio! So we can say that this GMC song is having a radio rotation in Argentina!! :)

    Ok! Regarding the lesson... this is a metal solo that combines different techniques as tapping, alternate picking and sweep picking. The solo is in Eb minor scale because I used 440 standard tuning. Lian also composed the backing track for the solo and allowed me to compose the solo that I wanted to play there. However his composition suggested the "Christmas" melody in the last par of the solo.


    • tapping
    • alternate picking
    • sweep picking
    • bending
    • vibrato

    Scales used:

    • Eb minor
    • Eb pentatonic minor
    • F minor

    Ok, I hope that you enjoy the lesson!
