Big Rig Blues: This next composition uses triads with the open sixth string as a drone.

Melody In Bass: This simple tune is great for practicing basic fingerpicking. Use your thumb to play the bass strings (E, A & D) and your index, middle and ring to play the treble strings (G, B & E).

Metallic Rainbow: Here’s a cool riff song I wrote using the phrygian mode. I came up with the song title because the guitar riffs remind me of Metallica and Rainbow. Have fun playing it!
