Sebene Guitar Will Seem Simple

In Niwel’s own words: “In the course, I’ll refer to arpeggios, intervals and modes. It’s where all these guitar lines come from. It sounds complex, but it’s all based on simple theory. I never understood much of it myself, and then one day it clicked.”

“I’ve planned these lessons to short-cut all that effort. I’ve broken everything down so that anyone, from any musical background, can quickly pick up the basics, then hone their skills, even if they don’t have any previous experience or knowledge of African music. There’s notation, tabs, and lots of exercises at all kinds of tempos so you can learn at your own pace, in your own way. This is my people’s music. The music of my ancestors and my nation.”

“It’s a real honour to share it with you.”

….. your entire musical repertoire with intricate,  chromatic Sebene lines.

….. your playing with the 1970s fingerstyle plectrum combo octave technique.

….. Franco Luambo Makiadi’s interval approach down to the very last detail.

….. the Lead-Rhythm relationship to effortlessly blend into ensembles.
