Helpful Tips

Our arrangement of “Havana” stays true to its Latin roots while splicing in an array of tasteful techniques. First off, I love this song! It’s got a great Latin beat with an excellent melody.

The most difficult part of this arrangement is the vast array of technique that is required to perform it. This song uses: a 4 finger strum roll, staccato plucked chords, hammer-ons & pull-offs, slides, triplet picking (here is an extra lesson explaining the rhythm behind eighth note triplets), tapped harmonics, percussive body hits, chucking, and a tapped backbeat.

Another area of difficulty lies in the fact that many sections require a unique approach to fingerpicking. Furthermore, the outro requires an odd fingering of the chords in order to efficiently pick the section. Thus, in the lesson videos I will be covering the best way to approach playing each section.
