Claude Gagnon – Carrousel

About the piece

This piece offers a mixture of arpeggios, simultaneous playing with the thumb and fingers, and small scale movement in the melodic line. I also enjoy the key change from minor to major. It has a likable melody and remains in one position throughout.

Equipment:
Mic: Blue Yeti
Camera: Canon 1200D
Guitar: Miguel Lopez mod 013f
Strings: Savarez 510 AJ
