"Latin rhythms are the most interesting rhythms in the world," opines Al Di Meola, "and to write them you have to be able to play them." And Di Meola can certainly play them. The master altenate-picker and fusion pioneer has carried on a multi-decade love affair with the music of Spain and Central and South America while simultaneously leaving his imprint on the jazz and rock worlds. His two latest releases are The Guitar Trio with Paco de Lucia and John McLaughlin, and Di Meola Plays Piazzolla, a tribute to the great Argentinean tango composer Astor Piazzolla. Both albums are rich in Latin influences, and Di Meola has devoted his musical life to absorbing the subtle stylistic nuances of the various genres within his own playing. "Almost everything I do I kind of analyze to be some kind of percussion or drum pattern," says Di Meola. "I'm particularly interested in what's known as the 'clavé' rhythm. That's essential in Latin music, and some people just can't do it. But you'll hear Latin musicians say, 'Oh, he plays good clavé.' clavé is sometimes referred to as a rhythm, hut mostly in salsa music. When you play against the clavé, you're playing against the time, and that's what I do a lot when 1 play rhythmically on a guitar. We refer to clavé as the quarter note." A great example of this can be found in Di Meola's song "Beyond The Mirage," from The Guitar Trio (see Ex. 1). The opening arpeggios are composed in a classic clavé rhythm. "All three guitars tune the 6th string down to a low D," says Di Meola. "I use a little bit of my Roland GR synth in there, so you can hear that real low tone of a fretless bass sound."

The picking pattern is not strictly alternating, but designed to fit over the specific string spread. Di Meola composed the picking pattern as much as the notes themselves. You must perform the pick strokes a certain way to achieve the proper ,"hythm. "The first note you hit is on the 6th string, the second note is on the high E string, the third on the D string, and so on," explains Di Meola. "So there's a lot of skipping around. It's down, up, down, up, up, up. But you have to do it this way or the rhythm won't sound just right. And if it's off a hair, the feel is ruined."

At this brisk tempo (q=200), it's quite a challenge to execute pattens accurately. But that's not the most difficult aspect of the passage, according to Di Meola: "It's more the rhythm that's going to mess people up. And what people need to get into is experimenting more with different rhythms, and keeping all of that locked into the clavé time." The rhythm and the placement of the accents brings to mind anothe," Latin-jazz standard, "Spain," by Chick Corea. "The whole thing in 'Spain' is the way those accents fall," says Di Meola. "It's off of the clavé without the clavé moving that will determine whether it's working or not. What 1love about Chick is that he writes and plays with so much clavé. I'm really drawn to his ability to use that in composition and playing." As a fitting homage to Corea-who helped launch Di Meola's career by hiring ti,e teenage,' to play in his band Return To Forever -Paco, John, and Al perform "Spain" as an encore. Note how close the rhythm and accents are in the opening of "Spain" to Di Meola's own tune. The difference is that "Spain" is melodic and "Mirage" is rhythmic. Both carry the clavé rhythm within their notes, and both capture the essence of Latin music. "The important tiling is the rhythm," stresses Di Meola. "Withont that you have nothing. Whether it's 'Spain' or 'Beyond The Mirage' or whatever, the rhythm is everything."

My main purpose in writing this book on picking technique is to help guitar players develop speed and accuracy in their playing while developing their own musical goal. By doing this, the guitarist is better able to hear, play and write creatively for the guitar. Many of today's guitar players, particularly rock guitar players, are limiting themselves. By not learning speed, accuracy, and scale work, they have no chance to develop a variety of styles, tempos or other important musical elements. In order to be an effective and creative player today, a guitarist must learn the entire fretboard in a scale-wise fashion and be able to do it with speed and accuracy. An added help would be to listen to lots of different styles of music, not just top 40. This book has been simply structured for ease of use and accessibility to every guitarist who wishes to develop his picking technique. The real secret to it all is to practice a lot and to start slowly, gradually building speed, while always playing as clearly and accurately as possible. The main thing is to work hard on repetitive rhythms-it's the only way to improve. The outline of the book follows the development of alternate picking: first single string alternating, then work on repeated upstrokes, alternate picking on adjacent strings, and finally alternate picking skipping strings. These different elements of picking and some variations will all .be demonstrated by the use of exercises, scales, folk songs, and excerpts from my own tunes. An explanation of my muting technique is also covered. The excerpts from my own music include bass lines and chord changes for anyone who wishes to play with a friend or teacher. The left hand fingerings are those suggested by the editor and not necessarily my own. Full transcriptions of the tunes used in this book can be found along with other tunes of mine in my book, Al Di Meola, Music/Words/Pictures. I hope you wotk. hard and enjoy the book.
