Lesson notes

The Pentatonix have been big stars here in the US for a couple years now. Kirstin Maldanado, the lone female in the group recently put out a solo EP which included Break A Little.

The original was mostly keyboards but an acoustic version was released as well with an interesting guitar accompaniment.

The song includes fingerpicking at different speeds with unusual note groupings, and strumming at a few different speeds and intensities.

The techniques involved should be challenging enough, let alone adding the vocal part over the syncopated picking.

I want to thank my student Illeana for bringing the song to my attention and singing it as part of the lesson.
