SECTION1 Kora tex­tures

Guitar Techniques - - LESSON | VIDEO MASTERCLASS -

One par­tic­u­larly id­iomatic fea­ture of the Kora is its quick bursts of or­na­men­tal em­bel­lish­ment, and th­ese have been used by An­to­nio as in­spi­ra­tion for this ex­am­ple. On the Kora they are all played on in­di­vid­ual strings, but to recre­ate a sim­i­lar ef­fect on the gui­tar An­to­nio has used slurs. Aim to make th­ese as smooth as pos­si­ble while main­tain­ing the 6/8 rhythm, which gives this ex­am­ple a re­ally sat­is­fy­ing groove.
