GNOSSIENNE NO. 1 – Erik Satie – Full Tutorial with TAB – Fingerstyle Guitar

Gnossienne No. 1 by Erik Satie performed by Robert Lunn

Erik Satie coined a new word for this song (Gnossiennes). Originally there were three that were composed around 1890 and published in 1893. This first one I find to have a hauntingly beautiful sound. Originally, this one didn’t have barlines or time signatures. For my arrangement I added both to make it a little easier to play.

I hope you enjoy this teaching video. You can find other videos like this at my guitar school found at my website.

Gnossienne No. 1 performed by Robert Lunn

Erik Satie composed the Three Gnossiennes around 1890 and they were published in 1893. Originally for the piano, they are beautiful pieces of music which I would recommend checking out if you don’t know them. Satie was an interesting composer who experimented with chords, form and scales.
