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
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
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.
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.
Examples of well known songs that demonstrate the use of a simple triad or triads being used as a riff.
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!.
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?
The D chord can be moved up and down the neck to make new chords.
You can even make it minor so that you can play virtually any song like this.
Harmonics are strongest at the 12th, 7th and 5th Fret.
They can be heard elsewhere, but you have to work harder for it.
If on electric then you might need pickups that assist with this.
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.
Finger Exercises designed to test the player that would call themselves intermediate.
The idea here is the same as with any exercise. It is accuracy and consistency before speed. How slow can you go?
Make sure you look at the fingering suggestions as shown in the stave.
Feel free to make your own patterns.
