  • Hello friends of the GMC! Welcome to a new lesson. In this opportunity we will study the creation of different musical atmospheres.

    The creation of a good musical ambient is very important at the moment of composing your own songs. We will base on the style of big guitarists and composers as Joe Satriani and Steve Vai, and on bands like Dream Theater, Yes and others. In the introduction of this lesson we will be able to listen to Strings arrangements in C major, Orchestral Harp touching constant the principal Riff and FXs like Rain and Echoes that take us to a very particular ambient.

    We will study techniques as legato, alternate picking and vibrato. It is a very simple lesson at the moment of studying techniques so the most important thing is to feel every part and to take this feeling to your playing. Do not forget to relax your fingers after every exercise.

    Audio settings: I have used the POD X 3 Live with some delay and my Stratocaster with the pick-up in second position.

    Scale: C major.
    Tuning: 440.
    Tempo: 145 bpm.

    Nothing is impossible! Feel the music and God bless you!
