Awesome tune by the “Father of Classical guitar”
Free TAB is from this fantastic site:
Capricho Árabe by Tárrega (Free PDF or TAB)
The definitive recorded version for me is this one:
Francisco Tárrega - Capricho árabe
This is very cool, too:
Capricho Arabe (F. Tárrega) - Alexandra Whittingham
Chords used for 12 Bar Blues Strum.
Not much of a sequence for the B7 chord as the notes that you might use are not easily available.
Some useful shapes for the Sus4 chord: 1, 4, 5
A really tough one to get right, many different sections.
This whacky song is apparently dedicated to or inspired by
Gareth Pearson. It's got a great vibe, tricky bits galore - a great challenge. As always with these types of songs, I have transcriped the bass notes with stems pointing downwards. The rhythm and melody notes pointing upwards.
Part 2 is here
Welsh Tornado Pt2.
Transcription showing of 1st verse plus the alternate riffs and licks that are in the song
Get the vibe. This is what blues is all about anyway.
Creating licks from the E minor pentatonic scale, then adding in the E Major Pentatonic.
Each lick is based on the melody from Eric Clapton's version that he performed for MTV Unplugged.
Recently discovered this band. I think they nail this style of music. It sounds like it is in their core.
There are two guitar tracks referenced and should be pretty close to the recording.
Power chord version of this cool song, still sounds awesome.
There is an additional chord bit added (Bridge 1), it uses one chord shape Am which is moved up the neck to make the Dm and Em chords.
Mucking around with a consistent picking pattern over Annies Song, with a Capo at the 2nd Fret.
Using the 3 notes per string concept to create a scale shape, within which you pick out the arpeggio for each starting interval.
This shape is starting from the sixth note in the scale and is therefore position 6.
These multi-octave arpeggios are great for testing your dexterity, understanding of the fretboard. The aim is to play the shape anywhere on the fretboard.
3 notes per string shapes allow you to find chords, melodic runs, arpeggios and other patterns, plus really fast solos!.
Some of the riffs form the classic tune from the classic album from the classic band.
Not completed yet, will add more later.
Quick example of the melody for Malted Milk
It is not exact, nor is it trying to be. They are pretty much the right notes, so the idea is to make it sound right. So how do you do that?
