Our guest tutor continues to take us through a guitar part that he was given for a professional stage show. Many of the markings on the music are also used by a keyboard player, bass player and drummer.

To get the best performance from a guitarist, the best thing that an arranger can do, is give a clear indication of what is wanted without writing every note.

If you write every note for a contemporary rhythm section musician, it may close down his imagination and instead, he will spend his time worrying and trying to give you what he thinks you want, so the part should be as simple and easy to understand as possible. Then the musician can bring the best of his ability to your music.
