In this lesson I break down some of the things that make the sound of musicians like Ali Farka Toure and Tinariwen distinctive. This is mostly focused on a couple of the unique scales that they use.

  11. Hey great video. For more of an advanced beginner however it's hard to follow when your finger the scale so fast. I think tabbing the lesson would be a great idea. Thanks. Love that music.

  13. libiya algeria moroco muritaniya mali touareg music

  14. Metallaoui Yasser

    Tinariwen are algerian and mali not Libya dud

  15. You have made videos on all my favorite flavors of music. I started listening to this kinda music a year ago, and am totally hooked. Before that I was (am) all into gypsy jazz and eastern music. What am I missing now? hahaha!

  16. The music is From Mali, and Tinariwen is not from Lybia as you claimed. Please stop creating such confusions. This is how Westerners always start. Soon we are going to hear that it came from Europe or that it is some Arabic music. This is the source of American blues here.
