Carmelita
Mike Pachelli takes you through “Carmelita,” as recorded in 1976, by Warren Zevon. Though written by Warren, Murray McLauchlan first recorded “Carmelita” in 1972. 
 
It was also recorded by a variety of other artists, such as Linda Rondstadt, Counting Crows, Social Distortion, and Dwight Yokum. However, it’s Warren Zevon’s rendition that makes “Carmelita” the definitive song about the dangers of drugs.

Mike plays a Gibson Acoustic Hummingbird 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.
