Song description

In this song we will be using the notes of the A major scale horizontally up the fretboard and using some similar ideas we have previously discussed. This song will also have something extra giving it an edge in terms of how a scale sounds.

Compositional analysis

As mentioned in the description, our third song will be in the key of A major. Some notable aspects about this piece is that not just will we be using the additional bass notes but there will be some string skipping techniques involved as well in order to play it fluently, so that will need some extra attention. As usual, timing and gracefulness will be of utmost importance. Be sure about what fingers you want to use for the note groupings as you will soon find out that being economic about your fingers will be very essential as we go forward in our journey ahead. Last but not the least, this composition uses sounds of the lydian mode which is technically the same as the major scale but with a #4 instead of the perfect 4th scale degree, which creates the kind of sound that is very popularly used in western music as well as Indian traditional music.
Bon appetit !
