Thicc - Brandon Coleman

Was just revisiting rhythm changes recordings, listened to a lot and wanted to grab some really solid, logical lines that made the changes without either a ton of substitutions, or being more blues based.… More…

Emily sort of makes a "pick shape" with her thumb and index finger, and at times strums with just the index finger, at other times may "smack" the strings into the body/pickups of the guitar. Whichever… More…

Frikkin hard! Original guitar part + melody together. More…

Something I put together for a student that I thought came out well. The sus4 to dominant is just another way to play ii V - ii V with V in bass. This mixes in a few different elements to get a nice flow… More…

I had been working on an arrangement of the intro line from Tigran Hamasyan's "The Grid" (that's not what this is) - "the Grid" is fast 16th notes in groups of 5, 5, 7, 5, 5, 5, then repeat. To try to… More…

This is very stupid. More…

With a few exceptions, all of these chords are either 1 5 9 7 or 1 5 9 b7, from lowest to highest. For some reason I really like this structure, you could think of it as a triad over its fourth, or a 9th… More…

This is three separate parts combined into solo guitar. Taken from a lead sheet Gilad posted on his website. Originally it's bass, melody, and a syncopated accompanying guitar line. Tried to put them all… More…

I took a “lick of the day” from Horace Bray that was Holdsworth-inspired, then arranged it to have an additional melodic voice, making it more dynamic to play unaccompanied (if you have no friends 😔 ) More…

This is more so a teaching concept than an arrangement, although I do think it sounds nice, hah. … More…

Saving this one for later, been doing a few things with it. (You can turn on TAB if you want; just thought the concept was easier to see on the staff)… More…

This was from an instragram post and I believe Tosin said he was messing around with concepts from Daniele Gottardo, but the riff is Tosin's creation.… More…

Don't feel like you have to do this at full tempo - these are cool techniques to play with even if you're doing it much slower.… More…

Ascending sus

Error!

I did this with the pick strokes/slurs that felt easiest for me in a single practice session, but if I were to spend a longer period of time on it I would probably work out some different pick stroke/slant… More…

Error!

Envious of this picking in the fast run - no sleight of hand there re: hybrid, sweeps, etc: just very solid alternate picking, hitting each note with a lot of power. More…

Adam Levy contacted me about transcribing this scat solo he did while on vacation. I had to think carefully about the best way to notate this particular solo. After exploring several different methods… More…

Error!

Got curious about Horace's "7 over 4 over 3" thing so I wanted to notate it. So the middle voice (D and G strings) has 7 equally spaced repetitions per measure, the top voice (B string) is 4, and the bottom… More…
