While my teacher and I are working on a new Lady Gaga fingerstyle arrangement for you, I am sharing this nice little blues etude. I found this fingerstyle blues guitar piece browsing through YouTube on TheGuitarNick’s channel. And was so glad to see he offers guitar tabs! It seems I’m the only one on YouTube playing Décontract Blues by Bernard Bigo on the electric guitar (so far). I feel the sound fits just as well as the acoustic guitar. And I love the little extra hammer-on in the first few bars.
Who is TheGuitarNick?
In case you need a little background information on TheGuitarNick, this is what he says about himself on his website: „Nicola Mandorino, geologist and musician, was born in Taranto, Italy, in 1963. He started studying the piano 14 years of age and at the same time began teaching himself the guitar. After a short period of interest in classical guitar, he found that classical guitar has a close relationship to the jazz and fingerpicking styles. He learned by listening and studying the recordings of the great guitarists and by attending numerous courses and master classes.“
The goal of his website „is to provide online guitar tabs to help people to learn how to play the guitar. Here you can learn to play in many different styles: basics for beginners, electric, acoustic flatpicking, fingerstyle guitar.“
