in Repertoire Posts: 122

Hi guys,

Does anyone out there could help me with the chord progressions used in this tune written by the great Gonzalo Bergara?

Thank you so much in advance!

    Started watching this video, but the slow Mo video was way over the top, so gave up. I'll have a listen without the vid.

    Cheers... Phil

    Sounds like the chord progression in the ballpark of Tears and Clare De Lune

    The result couldn't be better. It's a beautiful tune, one of my favourites one from this album.

    Haven't figured it out yet, but I would recommend to try to figure out Gonzalo's voicing specifically, or just focus on the bass.

    Mostly because Gonzalo has admitted to just "trying" different things on the guitar until he found something he liked. Then he had to spend "months" learning how to solo over the tune he just wrote.

    I'd love figuring it out by myself but I'm not that smart enough to do so.

    There's no smarts at this stuff. Just time. Start now so you can become better at it. If you started back when you asked for the transcription, you would be teaching us how to do it. Not that I have a problem to try to figure it out for you, just lack of time...

    Gonzalo would probably be willing to help. Shoot him a line.
