Today was a sabbath day, a day for playing guitar. Several years ago (1999) Pat Metheny contributed to the soundtrack for the film, “A Map of the World,” and the the title track evokes simplicity, depth, and transcendent beauty. It plays like a prayer.
I have not been able to find the transcription for the guitar track, so I’ve learned and adapted it by ear. Metheny performs this on a small scale steel string that is tuned a fifth higher than normal pitch on the guitar. I think it works well for the classical guitar as well. I spent the day working it up and recording it on my Logic setup. Hope you enjoy it.
