Tutorial and tabs for City of Tokyo (Rynten Okazaki)

When I started to play solo gigs at open mics around town, I wanted to branch away from the classical repertoire and play something more modern. Up to then at open mics, I had appeared only as an accompanist to a violinist. So during our ten minutes on stage I would strum chords and sing along to traditional Quebecois dance tunes.

That all changed when I decided that I wanted to appear as a solo act and I set off looking for something to play other than classical repertoire. This was when I discovered the tune "City of Tokyo" by the Japanese fingerstyle guitarist Rynten Okazaki. Since he hasn't published much in English or toured outside of Asia, it was hard coming by more information about him or his works. Even harder was finding decent tabs so that I could learn the song.

So one of the first original fingerstyle tunes that you will find on my channel (both the cover and the tutorial) are for City of Tokyo by Rynten Okazaki. I really love the jazzy beat of this song, and I think it's a shame it's not played more often.  You can see that Sungha Jung covered it when he was a kid, back in his early days of being a child prodigy. 

What do you think? Find the tabs attached to this post, and go check out my tutorial on Youtube. Happy learning!

Attack on Titan - OP 1 - Eddie Van Der Meer Arrangement
Hello everyone

Let’s kick the month of May off with a tutorial of quick and easy arrangement of Guren No Yumiya by one of my favourite Youtube stars, Eddie Van Der Meer. 
https://youtu.be/fs-F4y6FppY
I’m planning on posting more fingerstyle guitar tutorials on my Youtube channel over the next few months. So stay tuned for more updates on this page!
It seems that this arrangement has some big stretches and I will probably do a video about how to avoid those or work around them in the future.
Tabs are available as a PDF attachment to this post.
See you in the next update!

Tabs for Phunk or Fight?

Have you ever heard an awesome tune and wondered which one to learn first?

Both Phunkdified and Fight are what I like to call Gateway Tunes to Fingerstyle Guitar.
Phunkdified is a song by Justin King and his fast use of Rasgueado technique coupled with percussion is out of this world.

Fight is a song by  Kotaro Oshio and I didn't really use much of the song besides the introduction and first theme in this mashup.

Tabs are available online somewhere for both of these tunes, but to get you started, you can learn Phunk or Fight? with the attached tab.
