Moroccan Nights – with TAB – Fingerstyle Guitar

Moroccan Nights performed by Robert Lunn

I composed Moroccan Nights using the double harmonic scale. The scale goes by a variety of names but what makes it stand out is that it has two large intervals in the scale called augmented 2nds.

I also use some basic rasgueados (strumming) in certain sections of the song as well as a different type of tremolo, compared to what most classical guitarists are used to.

THE DARKNESS BEHIND THE LIGHT – Full Tutorial with TAB – Fingerstyle Guitar

The Darkness Behind the Light performed by Robert Lunn

I composed The Darkness Behind the Light last year and is meant to be an etude for a late-beginner/early-intermediate guitar student. The piece consists of a melody (top voice) and bass voice (bottom) with an occasional inner voice.

While composing this I imagined a creepy scene (Halloween-ish) with a dark doorway full of mystery.

A Stream Without End – Full Tutorial With TAB – Fingerstyle Guitar

A Stream Without End performed by Robert Lunn

A Stream Without End is an etude I composed for the guitar that focuses on a right hand arpeggio (p, i, a) that repeats throughout the entire song. The piece was inspired by memories from childhood when we lived right next to a stream. I remember sitting there watching things float down the stream (like leaves). From my vantage point I couldn’t see the beginning of the stream nor the end of the stream.

SPARKLES – Cool Harp Harmonics – Full Tutorial With TAB – Fingerstyle Guitar

Harmonics are a cool effect on the guitar and I try to incorporate them as much as I can in my originals and arrangements. This etude I composed includes natural and artificial harmonics. It also includes a technique that I call, harp harmonics. It gives the impression of a harp.

These are all techniques commonly called extended techniques. Extended techniques involve producing sound with an instrument in an unorthodox way.
