Finished a transcription of Marshall’s performance from YouTube. It’s slightly incomplete - the recording cuts off before the end. Should be a fun technical challenge for anyone Enjoy!
Marshall Harrison performs this fearsome work of “pianistic transcendentalism” on the guitar, using an innovative technique called “Swybryd” picking - a combined approach of Sweeping (economy) and Hybrid (pick + fingerstyle) techniques. (Sweep + Hybrid = Swybryd). This allows for optimal efficiency in pick slanting movements using adjacent string changes and string skipping. Alkan’s Grand Étude is a masterclass in this technical system.
