Gipsy Kings Style Picking Pattern
This is a new piece I’m working on called Mano a Mano. Here is the opening section which has a Gipsy Kings feel.
This opening section features arpeggio style chords in C sharp minor. I’m utilizing the open E and B strings to get a nice Spanish dissonance and I have also added some chords in the higher positions.
The chord progression is
C#m9 – C#m9/B – A maj 9 – F#m 9 – G#m – G#
The strumming part is all done with the thumb. I continue the piece by adding a solo in between.
Here’s the music:
