Watch the Week 2: Gift of a Lifetime - Part 1 online guitar lesson by Roberto Dalla Vecchia from Flat Out Flatpicking
This song is all about playing from the heart with dynamics. It's so important to control the volume of the chords and of notes as we play. Dynamics is one of those subtle qualities that makes a guitar player sounding like a pro.
We really need to keep this in mind and learn to use dynamics in everything we play: a song, a solo, a musical phrase...very often a single note in a measure is more important than all the other surrounding notes and we have to play it louder.
Music is what feelings sound like!
