Summary: Cool Summer Grooves!

This track is a really cool blend of electronic sounds and beautiful guitar tones. It has some really cool guitar chords and a must learn melody line on the guitar. It is a challenge, but give it a try!

Chords: Very Cool Chords

We'll kick off with chords. It's important to say that the original track is in the key of D minor, but he plays it live in the key of C minor. It is the live version that we are very much working within this lesson (from a live Facebook stream he did). So, here are the chords you need:

Rhythm: Fingerpicking

For the whole track, we can use a simple fingerstyle. We are simply using our fingers rather than the pick to pick through each chord. As for the actual rhythm, we are following this rhythm pattern (note: you simply play the chord with your fingers on each red arrow stroke. Each red arrow is a different chord, as noted above it).

The Lead: C Minor Part

The lead line is using the C minor pentatonic and the C minor scale based around the 3rd and 4th shape, which are shown below. It's quick, but it's so worth trying to get it!
