Watch the Flight of the Bumblebee online guitar lesson by Dave Celentano from Classical Concepts for Rock Guitar
Nikolay Rimsky-Korsakoff (1844-1908) was a Russian composer who wrote primarily operas and is best known for his composition "Flight of the Bumble Bee". This exciting piece is a virtuostic showcase of speed and technique that will require diligent practice with a metronome. I found legato to be a very efficient technique for playing "Bumble Bee", so get those fretting hand fingers warmed up. Also, this tune uses the chromatic scale which is comprised of all half steps and uses all twelve notes in music.
