Upward Slanting Etude

Dec. 7, 2018

Error!

Etude based off some picking experimentation. Tough to let all those notes ring out, and also to control the timing in all those quick sweeps. More…

An arpeggio sequence I was working on as alternate picking practice, applied to Giant Steps chord changes arranged as spread triads. More…

Error!

All right so a little bit of an unconventional slice. A lot of people covered that "fingerpicking addition" thing I posted the other day, but had trouble nailing the last measure in 9/8. Some played it… More…

Tried writing a little etude that was rhythmically in groups of 2, then 3, then 4, then 5, 6, 7, 8, 9.… More…

Hey, what's the best way to write those trills and ornamentations that I often have as 32nd notes?… More…

Cover of Lyle Brewer Etude More…

Error!

Was playing around with a rhythmic idea, maybe later might flesh into more of an etude or piece: the melody is a group of five notes repeating, but it alternates every two measures between being played… More…

Possible ways you can play Bb/C without growing new fingers. C is always lowest pitch. Let me know if I missed any! More…

Thicc - Brandon Coleman

Oct. 10, 2018

Error!

Error!

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…

Error!

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…

Beatonality - Rick Beato

Sept. 18, 2018

Error!

"Bitonality" quick instagram post from harmony master Rick Beato. More…

Error!

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…
