I asked a student to name a song or artist that sounds like the direction he would want to go in...
...His reply was '
Ryan Keen'. I thought ok, I'll check him out. So I did, and I transcribed his song 'Interlude', form his EP '
Aiming for the Sun'.
This is actually a 2nd edition. The 1st edition was my guess at the tuning (which I got wrong - come on, it could have been anything!). I emailed Ryan and he very nicely told me the tuning, which is DADDAD, or open D5:
- 6th String: D
- 5th String: A
- 4th String: D
- 3rd String: D
- 2nd String: A
- 1st String: D
I like it when artists just put out short tracks or little ideas. No need to pad it out to make it 5 minutes, just keep it as it is. Short and Sweet. Nice.
I have included my thoughts on the fingers used to play the notes. See if you agree.
