This is not a vanity web site. I am tuning the design and content of the site to serve you, the visitor, with the fruits of my creative output which are tools and recipes for the most part.
This note is abstracted from my 1996 Siggraph Tutorial. The media library it is based on is documented here.
A major advantage of using dedicated hardware such as sound cards and MIDI modules is that real-time perormance and reliability issues are taken care of in the boxes.
"Classical huapango is characterized by a complex rhythmic structure mixing duple and triple meters
which reflect the intricate steps of the dance . When the players sing ( in duo , on a falsetto tone )
the violin stops, and the zapateo ( heels rolling on the floor ) softens.
The huapango is danced by men and women as couples; the men sing, the women do not.
Watch the beginning of this arrangement of "You got to walk that lonesome valley" to see how the picking pattern is modified to match the left hand
The left hand is building up and breaking down parts of the G Chord.
This continues throughout the arrangement as the first position G Chord shape is slid up and down the neck.
The only fretted chords in this classic Son House bottleneck blues are barres with a 7th added on the high string.
