sometimes Stochelo picks the 16ths


triplets up, sometimes down and other
times two down, one up (bar 48). The
lesson to be learnt is: it really doesn't matter,
do what comes natural.

Fast minor run. Usually


played starting on the A-string
but here's Stochelo's fingering
starting on the E-string.

Lyrical phrase. Fits over


Em7b5 and G minor

You gotta learn this very cool lick, it will amaze friend and foe. If they ask you where you come up with these
phrases just say that you just play what you hear in your head (yeah, right!!).

In bar 78 we see a very rare example of Stochelo alternate picking a diminished arpeggio. If
you would ask him why, he would say that this is just the way he practiced this lick a long time ago.
You can try it this way or stick to Stochelo's normal picking patterns. Practice this cool phrase
in C-, D- (here), E- and F-

This sounds very exciting and impressive but is in fact very easy. Good stuff if you need some relaxation time in the
middle of all your double time licks without losing drivet!

This is just a chromatic scale with


embellishments to connect two
licks. Good trick for when you
need to connect licks some frets
apart.

This second bridge (bar 89 to 95) are exactly the same as the first bridge (bar 57-63), except for bar 96 which is
Stochelo's standard lick to get back to the theme of Bossa Dorado.
