  • Hello everyone, here's another beginner classical solo I "compose". This is a 1995 theme, from the same time of Santanero. Originaly it was a band theme, a slow 6/8 blues. The bass makes the melody, keyboard making a background and rythm guitar playing the second dotted black from the 6/8.

    My friends named it "el (tema) oriental" -the oriental (song)- because of the color of the melody: A C# Bb A melody over a A chord. I kinda rescued this and polished it a little for solo guitar. I Changed some chords (Dm7 for the original Dm, I thing it's a huge improvement).

    The arpeggio of the guitar kinda imitates the hi-hat of the drummer ^-^
    A (vid 1) B (vid2) a1 (vid 3) Coda (vid 4)
