  • Statistics

  • In the early 60's came a band that revolutionized instrumental guitar music. They were called the Spotnicks. Today's lesson should please all the nostalgics that want to get into that kind of music.
    The track is inspired by the song "Back to the roots".

    Here is the chord progression we'll work with:

    E-B-E-B
    E-B-E-E7
    A-E-B-E
    E-B-E-E7
    A-A-E-E
    B-B-E-E
    A-A-E-E
    F#-F#-B-B
    E


    The tools we'll use are mostly pentatonic scales. Try to follow the chords with some simple melodic ideas.

    Have fun!
