  • Hi my friends! Today’s lesson is a humble tribute to all those session guitarists, which generally stand behind great pop artists. A couple of years ago, I was listening to the radio and suddenly something surprised me: a guitar solo in an Alejandro Sanz’ song.
    I couldn’t believe my ears. What a great guitarist!! Months later I’ve came to know that Ludovico Vagnone was the one playing that solo and that he is a well-known European guitarist. Since that day I started to pay attention to pop songs and I realized that pop singers have great musicians playing for them. Even though you dislike this kind of music, I strongly recommend you to listen to Cristian Castro guitarist, as well as Ricky Martin and Enrique Iglesias (Greg Howe himself used to play for the last one).
    To pay tribute to these hidden heroes, I leave you with this song I’ve composed for a pop band in which I used to play a long time ago. The chord progression is:

    // A / D / G / D/ A / D / G / D/ A / % / % / % //

    I play A mixo scale, A pentatonic major and G, D and A arpeggio over a A mixolydian backing track. Enjoy it!!!
