Malaguena problem solved...!!

Posted by Jouni on Tue, 05/11/04 - 02:49:26.

This is a version of the Malaguena that is fairly simple to play, but you can make it harder as you learn it better...

One easy way to learn this tune is to play the melody over and over before you ever put in the thin e string/1st string... The melody is always played with the thumb, as in most cases with this kind of music...

When you know the melody pretty good the begin to play the first string/thin e, between each pick in the melody, with your index finger... Kind of touchy/feely description, but anyway... It will not sound cool or flashy at all, at first, but when you pick up speed it will come together real nice...

After you master that, try to pick the thin string two times between each pick of the melody, with your index and middle finger... (I and M in PIMA...

At last the final step is to play the thin e string three times between each pick of the melody, with your index, middle and a something finger... (I, M and A in PIMA, where P is your thumb, and your little finger doesn't count)... Sorry if you think that im rambling on... But I have to simplify a little for all the newbies out there, who I know can play this song with a little bit of practice... Anyway... Good luck / J

ps. This tune goes in 3/4... So don't even try to time it any other way... .ds
