When you find yourself playing the same melody over and over - whether it's in an arrangement you're working on, or an original composition - you need to use creative variations to keep the melody fresh and interesting.
In my latest arrangement of the Davy Jones Theme from Pirates of the Caribbean, I found myself in this exact scenario - so I decided to use one of my absolute favorite variation ideas. I call it the Villa-Lobos Effect.
If you come from a classical guitar background, you're probably very familiar with the work of Brazilian composer Heitor Villa-Lobos and his iconic Prelude No. 1.
In today's video, I show you how you can recreate the distinctive sound of that piece with almost any melody - so you can add it to your "musical toolbox" when you need variation ideas to jumpstart your creativity!
