"Big Island" A Slack Key Style Tune in Open G
17-Minute Lesson: $7.95 (only $4.95 with special promo code, AGSKHT).
While this fingerstyle piece is reasonably easy to play, it has some really neat rhythmic and harmonic elements - lots of double-stops in thirds and sixths - that will make it well worth working on. As with all of Mike’s tunes, this one has some nice musical surprises, too. It’s a multi-part piece in open G, and the fingerstyle picking provides that rich, evocative Hawaiian mood that listeners find so compelling. You’ll love learning and playing this piece.
