I finally got round to making a lesson on the playing of the great Phil Manzanera. He’s best known as the guitarist for Roxy Music, but he’s made many great non-Roxy records too (his solo album Diamond Head is well worth a listen if you don’t already know it.) The song I’ve chosen to look at is Amazona, from the Roxy album Stranded. And it’s a really fun song to play – a lovely main riff, an odd time signature bridge and some bonkers soloing at the end. Check out the video here. If enough people enjoy this then I’ll try and look at a bit more Manzenera in the future.
