Hungry Eyes
Mike Pachelli gives a great lesson on 80's guitar with the song, “Hungry Eyes” by Eric Carmen. The song was featured in the 1987 mega-hit movie Dirty Dancing.

The mid 80’s was the era of keyboard driven songs, while the guitar took a back seat. This was not necessarily a bad thing because in order to play the pop songs of the day, a guitarist had to understand keyboard voicings. So, although “Hungry Eyes” is basically just muted 8th notes, played in 5ths, it has very interesting passing voice chords and polychords not traditionally used on guitar. So they’re great to have in your “trick bag.”

Mike plays an Epiphone Casino in this lesson.



Mike Pachelli
    Mike Pachelli started playing guitar as a youngster in his hometown of Youngstown, Ohio. His earliest influence was Wes Montgomery who Mike says, "first opened my ears to the possibilities on guitar." Pachelli studied classical guitar at YSU and then moved to New York City to study bebop with guitar luminaries Joe Pass and Pat Martino. Mike's guitar style is an amalgamation of blues, jazz, rock, and neo-classical. He has a wealth of musical experience gained thru years of night clubs, concert halls, and recording studios. He's performed all over the U.S. and Europe with some of the most eclectic jazz, blues, pop and rock musicians including Brother Jack McDuff, Albert King, Les & Larry Elgart, Michael Sembello, Crystal Gayle, Barbara Mandrell, Jeanne Mas, Phil Keaggy, Frank Stallone (to name a few) and has done classical symphony concerts touring with Ferrante and Teicher.
