  • Hello Friends! I know many of you really enjoy Paul Gilbert’s songs, lessons and videos. Well, I enjoy them too. So, I know that Paul use to play classical songs in his albums or teach classical exercises in his videos. In fact, he shows a lot of classical pieces in his DVD "Guitars for Mars". For that reason, I think it could be really cool to record a classical lesson.

    I enjoy classical music like Bethoveen, Bach, Vivaldi, Paganini, Tchaikovski, and especially Mozart’s music. I don’t remember the first time I started to listen classical music, but I remember the first time I went crazy about the genius Mozart. It was when I saw the film "Amadeus", at the age of nine or ten, I’m not sure, and I think "Perfect!".

    I have no words to explain what I feel when I heard his music, it’s really great, Mozart rules! I have my favourites masterpieces: "The Magic Flute", "Requiem", "Eine Kleine Nachtmusik", and the one I choose for the present lesson "Alla Turca".

    For the lesson, I adapted the melody for a piano transcription to the guitar, I introduce a little variations and, in my opinion, obtained cool exercises for the left hand, because of the hard four finger’s work, and for the right hand, because of the alternative picking technique.

    Well, I recorded the lesson in two parts. In this one, the first one, we can see two sections, the first one in the key of Am, and the second one, in A.

    Tempo: 130 bpm

    Hope you enjoy it. See you in the next one!
