  5. 5. Creative Fusion - Kiko Loureiro Beginning his musical studies at age eleven, Kiko has never stopped evolving both as a musi- cian and as a composer. Today, he is in the enviable position of being respected, well-known and influential worldwide. Kiko was just 19 years old when he was invited to join the newly-formed band ANGRA. Before then he studied with Mozart Mello and played with various local groups in his hometown of Sao Paulo, Brazil. Kiko’s solo career has developed parallel to that of ANGRA. In March 2007, Kiko Loureiro was voted “Best Guitarist” by respected Japanese music publica- tion BURRN. Quite an achievement for a young guitarist from Brazil whose meteoric career has spawned numerous studio and live albums with ANGRA, as well as solo albums “No Gravity” and “Universo Inverso”.

  8. 8. Creative Fusion - Kiko Loureiro Tablature Explanation Tablature (or tab) is a number system for reading notes on the neck of a guitar. It does not re- quire you to have knowledge of standard music notation. This system was designed specifically for the guitar. Most music for guitar is available in tab. Tablature is a crucial and essential part of your guitar playing career. The six lines of the tablature staff represent each of the six strings. The top line is the thinnest (highest pitched) string. The bottom line is the thickest (lowest pitched) string. The lines in be- tween are the 2nd through 5th strings. The numbers placed directly on these lines show you the fret number to play the note. At the bottom, underneath the staff, is a series of numbers. These numbers show you which left hand fingers you should use to fret the notes. Chords can also be written in tab. If there are several numbers stacked together in a column, those notes should be played or strummed at the same time. Here are the Am and Em chords with the tablature written out underneath each diagram. Since the fingerings are shown on the chord diagrams, we won’t bother to repeat them underneath the tab. fret numberfirst string (thinnest) sixth string (thickest) left hand fingering 7
  9. 9. Creative Fusion - Kiko Loureiro Reading A Scale Diagram Scale diagrams are used to visually show you a scale pattern on the neck of a guitar. The six lines that go from left to right represent each of the six strings. Like you just learned with the tablature, the top line is the thinnest (highest pitched) string. The bottom line is the thickest (low- est pitched) string. The lines in between are the 2nd through 5th strings. The lines running from top to bottom are the frets. The numbered dots placed directly on these lines show you which finger to play at a specific fret. Each of these dots will have a number inside of it. These numbers indicate which left hand finger to fret the note with (1 = index, 2 = middle, 3 = ring, 4 = pinky). The numbers underneath the diagram show you where on the neck the scale is located, in this diagram the scale begins at the 12th fret. first string (thinnest) sixth string (thickest) left hand fingering neck location fretboard position markers frets 8
  10. 10. Creative Fusion - Kiko Loureiro Tuning Throughout the program Kiko uses standard A440 tuning. Below are the tuning notes for you to follow along with. Standard Tuning = E = B = G = D = A = E (thickest string) (thinnest string) 9
  11. 11. Creative Fusion - Kiko Loureiro Triads & Arpeggios “A” Minor Lesson 1 10 The Five Positions of “A” Minor Triads The Five Arpeggio Positions For Each Triad Before diving into the more complicated lessons in this program it is essential to understand the basic building blocks of this method. At the core of everything is the Triad which contains the Root, Third & Fifth degrees of a scale. The second essential building block is to be able to see and play the triads in five positions across the neck.
  12. 12. Creative Fusion - Kiko Loureiro “A” Minor Triads Lesson 2 First String Second String Single String Technique 11 In this lesson we have added the string pattern to each example so that you can see the arpeg- gio notes only on each string. Kiko is only playing the Example tab lines.
