Unconditional Surrender…

To your voice.
That thing, whatever it is, wherever it comes from, is ethereal.

Here’s my own self-study for the day and a contribution to the archives of cyberspace (cyborg space to Dr. Yucek):

(0)-E
(12)-B
(14)-A
(12)-D
(10)-G
(0)-E

G,D (play together 2 downward strokes). Single pick on A-note. Then single pick (12),b-note. Then single pick 12, d-note. And single pick 12, b-note.

Then:

(0)-E
(10)-A
(12)-B
(11)-C#(Db)
(12)-A
(X)

Continuous downward strokes on this chord, casually.

Try a counter-echo effect with this chord shape:

(5)-A
(0)-B
(4)-B
(5)-G
(4)-C#(Db)
(5)-A

And this one:

(5)-A
(3)-D
(0)-G
(0)-D
(X)-muted
(5)-A

And this one:

(5)-A
(3)-D
(5)-C
(0)-D
(X)-muted
(5)-A

Let counter-echo ring as true as possible.
These 4 chord positions and moderated picking technique in the 1st chord shape are enough, I think, to build a song.
