Totally Guitars Weekly Wrap Up June 26th, 2015
This week included another great surprise lesson from Vanessa, Tainted Love by Soft Cell. This is a great example of a song that may not have had distinctive guitar parts in the recording but translates pretty well into a percussive extravaganza. We also got into the meat of the Villa-Lobos Etude, up to the pyro-technic fingerboard flash where the whole thing takes a short but big detour into completely different techniques.
I also commented on a couple interesting Forum threads, one comparing Song Surgeon with Guitar Pro, and the other on quantity of performable songs. This led me to trying to resurrect a couple Gordon Lightfoot songs that I used to play (and sing!) a lot. I’ll leave the mixed results up to you to analyze or comment on.
Almost half way through the year, on to July next week!
