Thomas Griggs on tour with Aaron Intervals in 2018. Bm vamp! Some observations:… More…

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

Error!

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…

Careful with the harmonics and sustain in the chorus 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…

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…

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

Playing with some lines for superimposed harmony over ii V I. Started with looking for some nice (and less tired) sounds for V13b9 More…

Error!

If you try playing this, great to pay close attention to which notes ring out. More…

Error!

Well, this one's simple, it's just uh...dorian, I think... More…

Actually transcribed this in my pre-soundslice days, but just realized I had it on guitar pro and was curious to upload and try to sync it up. Really weird rhythms, might later go through and see if there… More…

Great arrangement and reharmonization from Griggly Bear here. I covered this and my video is also uploaded to the score - you can toggle back and forth under the 'recording' button. Also I put the lyrics… More…

Hello Vocal - Adele

Tried to transcribe this and figure out as many of the little nuances as I could: grace notes, slurs, vibrato, exact timing ,etc, and then also arrange it in a playable way on the guitar. On instagram… More…

Voicing/Etude Experiment form a few months ago. Caption on the original post was:… 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…

Error!

Transcription I did last year of the Great Griggles. Lot of whacky stuff. Maybe some day I'll get back in there and A. finish it, and B. notate which notes are hit with the pick and which with finger. More…

Actually just did a bit of this for a demo video I was making for Youtube to show the process of making a slice.… More…
