PLAY­ING TIPS

Guitar Techniques - - PYOTR TCHAIKOVSKY SCÈNE FROM SWAN LAKE -

[Gen­eral] Although an abridged ver­sion of Waltz Of The Flow­ers it still comes out as quite a sub­stan­tial piece. As usual I have added some pick­ing hand GUI­TAR fin­ger­ing TECHNIQUESto show the best 2 way4 3 to or­gan­ise that hand at the start of the piece. This fin­ger­ing is pretty in­tu­itive and you should con­tinue in a sim­i­lar vein through­out. On the last semi-qua­ver F# note of bar 6, I use a light rest stroke so that the sec­ond fin­ger rests on the sec­ond string and can be used to pluck on the first beat of bar 7 with­out repo­si­tion­ing. This is a help­ful way of keep­ing the dot­ted rhythm tight.
