PLAY­ING TIPS

Guitar Techniques - - ALESSANDRO MARCELLO | ADAGIO FROM OBOE CONCERTO -

[Bar 1] For each of the first three bars aim to play the re­peat­ing notes and chords with a con­sis­tent tone and a steady pulse – don’t be tempted to rush. [Bar 4] The melody be­gins at bar 4 so make it nicely au­di­ble over the chords. At bar 5, mute the low open fourth string with your pick­ing-hand thumb im­me­di­ately af­ter play­ing the Gm7 chord. At bar 4 we have a two-bar V-I (Dm-Gm7) ca­dence that is re­peated at bars 6 and 8, each time de­scend­ing in pitch. The third time (bar 8) has writ­ten out or­na­men­ta­tion – main­tain a steady pulse.
