Hi there !
I´d like to share a bit of the good results from working on the rest-stroke technique.
"Musette for a magpie" is composed by Martin Taylor. I nailed the whole thing in March, then discovered Gypsy Picking in May and re-learned it and rearranged the fingerings a little. Thanks again to Michael, your book helped me a lot !http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LLURj70bRYk
Comments are welcome, I personally think it´ll take some more time to get this really "fluid" and in better timing.
For the gear I used : Gitane DG 255, Wegen Fatone pick, Neumann TLM 103 microphone
Can you post a chart or tab?
Sure ! (and thanks!)
I couldn´t be bothered to remake it with the new fingerings, but there´s different ways of playing it anyway.
In Bar 33 it might be a Bm7b5 instead of B°. In the recording it was a bit hard to hear, but Bm7b5 would be more "logical". Both work fine, though...
I admit that the lead playing is slightly sloppy (some bum notes and quite a few licks are dragging behind the beat....shame on me) I guess it´ll take me another year to really nail this tune, especially at the speed that Romane plays it....that´s out of reach for now.
But I am kind of proud of the Pompe. I think it swings nicely and has that very subtle upstroke. Hope you´ll enjoy, and don´t hesitate to fire any comments at me.
