Lesson notes

One of Neil's popular instrumental pieces is Quicksand, the opening tune on his album El Dorado. There are five parts to the song, most based on a fairly standard chord progression but using a combination of picking patterns involving partially arpeggios and partially alternate picking to bring out the melody lines. The concluding part to Quicksand includes a segment on the arrangement as well as a Split Screen video with the entire song.
