Totally Guitars Weekly Wrap Up July 29th, 2016
This week’s revelation… I have to start doing less complicated lessons… maybe. The California Girls lesson seemed to take on a life of its own and I started thinking I would never be satisfied with it. What to put in, what to leave out? I finally had to wrap it up without the solo version that was looming. Maybe continuing with it soon if there is some interest.
The other new lesson this week was from Vanessa, doing I Don’t Believe You by Pink. I’m glad we get back to level 2 songs every once in a while and I have to put that memo in my stack of notes somewhere. It’s always cool to bring in a song from somebody we don’t have already have in the library.
Some things I addressed in this week’s update included a question that came up on the Light My Fire lesson page about soloing over the unrelated chords in the verse to the song, and a few thoughts on colourful chords.
This led to messing around with a Chet Atkins arrangement that a student was working on earlier this week, a trip way back into the 80s when I was inspired by Erik Satie to try some unusual harmonies and phrases, and into a jazzier number I wrote about 15 years ago.
All in all, it was a bit disjointed and hard to follow, but I imagine most of the TG Community is used to that by now.
Back next week,
