In this song tutorial we'll be teaching you the hit "Silent Lucidity" as made famous by Queensryche. This is an acoustic based, cinematic, and dynamic song that flows through a rich orchestral arrangement. It features some lovely arpeggiated guitar textures and a simple melodic guitar solo that plays more of a supportive role to the song. We're in the key of G, a 4/4 time signature with an occasional bar of 15/16, at a tempo of 72 bpm. In the following lessons, we will explore acoustic guitar fingerpicking and arpeggiation, flatpicking on the acoustic, extended chords, and clean, chimey single note motiffs. We'll talk about how all these techniques provide cool textures that seamlessly incorporate themselves into a dense orchestral production.
