Hey Homies, here is...

Lick 26

The idea with this is an unusual but effective way of playing fast 3 note per string triplets. You pick the first 2 notes and hammer on the 3rd. So instead of picking every single note you miss out one on every 3 note shape. You can build some seriously legitimate speed using this and it sounds different to both alternate and economy picking approaches. It can be tricky to do so we'll be going at it slow as usual and then see how things speed up... wink.gif

Lick 27

Lick for Tuesday 5th June 2012. Following on from last week's look at my weird picking approach, we're going to apply this to a linear scalar run in D minor. See you there !

Video Chat cancelled for Tuesday 12th June.

Hi guys, I've been having internet problems since Saturday and anything involving video streaming/ downloading/uploading is seriously compromised so I'm going to postpone the chat but I'll sort it out for another day later in the week when the problems are fixed ! smile.gif

Thanks Ben a lot for this week's video chat. You know, I observed that at high speeds while switching from 2nd to 3rd bar, my third finger got very tense. So after all this exercise may be the one to solve my 3rd finger problems smile.gif I will make this a part of my daily exercise routine smile.gif

Licks for Video Chat, Tuesday 3rd July

At the request of Opetholic, we're going to look at some basic tapping licks.

Lick 28

This lick in A Minor utilises a repeating left hand pattern whilst the tapped note ascends up the scale.

Attached Image
Attached File  Lick_28.gp5 ( 2.18K ) Number of downloads: 43


Lick 29

This is like the previous lick except the left hand also ascends up through the scale, so both left hand and tapping finger are moving.

Hey Ben,
I really apologize that I wasn't there at your video chat, especially since this week was something I requested. Something very out of the ordinary came out that I had to attend to.. But all is not lost, I will practice these two licks and make a video response smile.gif What speed did you guys reach in the end during the video chat ??
