Guitar Techniques



[Bars 1-4] We set the scene with a percussive arpeggio based chord progressio­n as found in the previous examples, before adding some melodic lines from bars 5-12. The slurred lines using open strings in bars 5 and 12 showcase some of Faye’s more technical work, as does the quick Diminished arpeggios and flutter chord in bar 10.

[Bars 13-20] These bars feature a couple of melodic lines using octaves and single strings, moving along the fretboard horizontal­ly. Experiment with the amount of vibrato used so that it complement­s the piece with a vocal like sound. Between bars 21-24 you’ll notice more bluesy approach, with some descending slides.
