Guitar Lesson - Arrangement of a New Song
Hi, guys. I'm choro.
I have some deshi(apprentices) who are professional artists.
Nomura is one of them.
Today, let me show you how I teach professional artists like Nomura guitar arrangement.
Nomura Plays the Guitar for "ab initio"

One Day at a Studeo in Shimo-Kitazawa
Hello, shishou. I'd like you to listen to my band's new song, and give me some advice, please.
OK, first, you play the guitar with the audio source.

Hmmm, the arrangement itself is not bad. What you need is how to express it.
When it comes to arrangement, people tend to focus on melody and rhythm, but the most important thing for live performance is articulation.
Yes. It's performance technique of transition on a single note or between some notes.
Today, I'll show you about the chorus phrase.
Here is the score of what you played.
The rhythm of the bass and the drum is based on this.
Which is rhythmically good. That is linked with the guitar.
But for arrangement, I would like to have it sense of floating and oriental.
Here, listen to this, sliding yields floating sensation and vibratos yield oriental taste.
Wow! That makes a big difference!!
Not to mention melody and rhythm, articulation is very important for live performance. Try many ways.
