Hello! I’m Rafael Bittencourt and welcome to another lesson from the series #tocaAngra. Where I teach acoustic guitar versions of Angra hits. A band that I’m founder and a member of. Today, you are going to learn the song “Bleeding Heart”. A most beautiful ballad which I love. Composed by Edu Falaschi and I had the pleasure of writing the lyrics As seen, in order to play the Intro and verses, we’re going to use two similar licks. Now I’m going to play just the Intro. Wich is played with Lick 1. And then you’ll see the tab for you to play along with me. All right! This is the first part of Lick 1. Now the second part. Together, this two parts form Lick 1. Wich is going to be played twice at the Intro. In order to play the first part we’re going to use Lick 1, wich I teached already, Lick 2 and these two chords right here. E flat ninth C ninth Take a look! Well. You’ve seen that in the first part verses we’re going to do arpeggios on the chords and at some point we play the licks First of all, I’m going to show you the arpeggios on the chords. Look at that! There’s no mistery here! Just form the chords and play it like this. Thumb. Thumb. Index finger. Middle finger and ring finger at the same time on the first strings. We are going to play this pattern once in each chord. Next, Lick 2 starts. Just like this. The right hand plays it exactly the same way. But here is important to pay attention to the left hand too. Wich does a short melody along with the chord. To understand this properly just follow the tab. In order to be more organized I will split it in two parts. This is the first one. And this is the second one. All right, that was Lick 2 wich is going to be played twice along the first part of the song. After that we repeat the arpeggio that I’ve shown at the beggining of the explanation. For a best guide in order to play licks and chords at the right moment you just need to see the Chords at the link on the description. At the chorus we’re going to play a different rythm. We’re going to use these chords right here. Take a look. B flat major. C minor. G minor. E flat major. A flat major. And F major. Take a look! Nearly the whole chorus will be played with this rythm right here. Take a look. Once more. Well. For the most chords it is played just once. At some others it is played twice. No problem, though. You just need to repeat it. Just pay attention at this. The first G minor of each verse at the chorus will be played in another rythm. Just like this. Look. You can practice in three parts.
The first one. The second one. And the third one. It all together goes like this. So, this rythm is just at the first G minor of each verse. Then we get back to the regular rythm. At the end of the chorus we get back with the arpeggio from the first part. That one with E flat ninth and C flat ninth. After the chorus comes the second part wich is very similar to the first one. Pay attention to the chords and it will be just fine. A detail about this section is that Lick 2 is played by half. Then there is the second chorus wich uses the same chords already shown. At the end of it, though, there is a different section wich uses these chords right here. D minor. And F ninth. Take a look! The main rythm at the second chorus is the same as I teached already. What is new is a short fill with two chords. E flat major. And F ninth. Like this. At the section remaining just play the main rythm form the chorus once each chord. The last chorus must be played the same way that I teached before. To finish the song we’ll play once downwards on B flat ninth. Look at that! Alright guys! That’s it!
