In this short blog I play a solo guitar arrangement of “You’ve got a friend” By James Taylor/Carol King and show some ideas I used to create this arrangment
First video in a series about chord extensions. More to come!
This first video (part 1 of 3) deals with ‘trading’ which is what musicians refer to as exchanging solos during a section of a tune. Here you will need your instrument to follow what I do and solo when it’s your turn. This is a great exercise to learn tunes inside out. Many times beginners tend to get lost during a song as they just know where to start but not where they are in the tune. This will get you to focus on where in the tune you are.
