Its Been A While

Want to know how to use triads effectively? It doesn't get any more clear than this! This song is a true triad-fest, and a fantastic showcase of their power. Not only will I teach you how to play this song, but I'll also give you some compositional insights, and there's also a tasty solo at the end with some unusual melodic movements that you can add to your musical vocabulary.

About This Class

Exercise your skills and have a blast learning this delicately played finger-style track! I’ll break down each section of the song individually for you to learn and analyse, and then you’ll get the change to play along with me during the slow demonstrations.

Whilst learning the song occupies the majority of this class, I will also be sharing some compositional insights along the way for you to get a better understanding of how the track came to be.
