Groove Imam Part 1 Bluesy Salawaat Ahmed Tijani

I bumped into a video of Shaykh Ahmed Tijani Ben Omar, spreading positive vibes in a gospel context but within Islam and decided to edit his speech and singing so I could company him with my guitar and drums.

Fanfare Ciocarlia Que Dolor Trumpet Solo Guitar Cover

I always like to transcribe musical lines that are produced by other instruments rather than the guitar. All kinds of fretted (and sometimes fretless instruments as well) instruments have a similar approach and we sometimes get lost in its graphically easy-to-play attribute and try to play physical things rather than the music itself. Think about a trumpet player, they have to take a breath and play wisely most of the times. …
