Guitar Techniques - - PLAY -

Us­ing a ny­lon-strung gui­tar, this ex­am­ple is as much about com­po­si­tion as it is about tech­nique. Eric is very fond of un­ex­pected key mod­u­la­tions, like those in Layla, Bad Love etc. Here, we’re us­ing al­ter­na­tive non-root bass notes to take this piece into some in­ter­est­ing places. It’s well worth tak­ing note of ideas like th­ese for use in your own com­po­si­tions, as the oc­ca­sional un­ex­pected mod­u­la­tion can be the ‘hook’ that makes a song a hit.
