In this lesson, I will demonstrate the rhythm part for "Boreal" at a slow tempo.
Capo the guitar at the 2nd fret. The chord progression uses the following shapes. I play most of the progression with Rumba Pattern 1, adding a flourish with Rasgueado Technique 5 on the last Bm.
E sus with G - notice how I drop the middle finger (M) halfway through strumming the chord to create a nice melody.
F#m - I make a similar move here with the ring finger (A) on the G string.
E sus w/G again
Bm - played Rasgueado
