Watch the Japanese Meditations: 1 online guitar lesson by Tony Smotherman from World Rock Guitar

Creating a relaxing bed to play over really enhances the meditative sounds that we're looking for. I'm using a linear approach to the pentatonic scale so I don't get stuck in a box and can have more freedom across the fretboard. By picking individual notes multiple times we can make the instrument sing as much as possible, picking near the bridge to intensify the effect.
