  • Hi GMC'ers! We're taking it up a notch this time and adding a single triplet burst at the end of each 16th note phrase. This is a technique that people like Paul Gilbert and Troy Stetina use to train our brains and bodies to get used to playing phrases at faster speeds but without fatigue and loss of focus.

    We move through similar scalar phrases that were featured in part 1, adding a 4th note on a lower string (you'll see what I mean). The purpose of this lesson is to get your fretting hand playing slightly more difficult scale sequences... and to encourage a little more speed and flexibility. Even if you think the triplet part is too hard for you, you may be surprised at what you can do.. so give it a try!

    Chord Progression:
    A5 - E5 - F5 - G5 - C5 - G5 - A5 - E5 - F5 - C5 - F5 - G5 - C5

    Scales:
    * A minor
    * A Aeolian

    If you have any questions:
    * Give feedback (upper-right-corner)
    * My Personal Board
    * General Forum

    Enjoy, and remember.. the only opponent is within./ Ben

    A Aeolian
