EX­AM­PLE7 chord-based clas­si­cal piece


Guitar Techniques - - USER GUIDE -

Here’s an ar­range­ment of the French com­poser erik satie’s Gymno­pe­die #1 (1888). It lends it­self per­fectly to this type of ap­proach – the fret­ting hand han­dles the chords while the pick­ing hand plays the melody. One as­pect that makes things sim­pler is the that the rhythm of the chord ac­com­pa­ni­ment is con­sis­tent through­out. As men­tioned ear­lier, the key to play­ing a piece like this is to fo­cus on the notes that are played si­mul­ta­ne­ously in both hands.
