Dave Francis – Rylynn

\\\\\\TUMENI NOTES//////

This piece is really special to me. Andy McKee is one of the finest and most innovative guitar players composing today, and probably will be viewed highly in the guitar pantheon after most of us have turned to dust. He does everything very well, and writes very technical and difficult pieces of music that are also incredibly beautiful.

Andy McKee is absolutely worth tons of listens if you don’t know his playing. Rylynn is one of my favorites. I don’t know that my playing does it justice, but I definitely tried very hard to make it sound pleasant. By anyone’s standards this is really HARD to play, and utilizes a crazy tuning, a capo made for a banjo, slap harmonics, and approximately 9,467 notes weaved into a catchy and soulful melody.

I also want to thank all of my friends in social media who help spread the word about my playing, and teaching. The Guitarborist page has seen really incredible growth lately, and that has everything to do with YOU friends passing videos along. It’s really neat getting comments from people I’ve never met on the other side of the world who have generous things to say about the music being made, and it helps my studio have a stronger, and more legitimate presence in the world.

Thank you all very much, and I hope this is enjoyed!

    Hello,

    I am girl from Slovakia and I can not find anywhere the notes for this song. What I found were very very bad versions of notes and tabs, but it is not possible to play it correctly with that. I really like your version and I want to ask you, if you have it written as notes and if it is possible to send it to me? I would even pay you if it wouldn’t be very much.

    Thank you for answer 🙂

      Hey Lulla. Thanks for your remarks. I bought the tablature for “Rylynn” from either Candyrat records or from Andy’s website. Compared to the quality they usually produce I remember it being a pretty rough transcription. Since it isn’t my work I can’t sell it to you, but suggest checking those resources to get a copy. If you need help interpreting the tab I can definitely help with that. You can contact me directly by using the contact button on this website. Thanks for stopping by!
