Can anyone recommend me some nice riffing of the man in the veins of intro riffs of Scarified and technical difficulties?
16ths alternated with 16th triplets .. I love these kind of excercises smile.gif

llo all,

after my intro, now a short post about my current issue!

I've been playing 16th notes on 120-130bpm for a while now. It seems that I do not get any further then this and something mechanically is blocking me. Why do I think this? Well, I can play 16ths at 130 almost infinitely. I don't get tired doing this, but I can't play it any faster.

So I spoke with a guitar teacher that looked at my motion, and he told me NOT to put my hand to rest on the bridge, as this blocks free movement.

So my options are:

- Play with my hand open (so pick between thumb and index and the rest loose) but resting on the bridge
I am used to this, accuracy is good and muting works like a charm, but my other fingers tense up

- Play with my hand open and completly floating, support comes from my arm, which rests on the guitar
Accuracy is a lot less and muting is a bit more difficult, but I notice the freedom of movement

- Play with my hand closed (so pick between thumb and index and the other fingers tucked loosely in my hand) but resting on the bridge
Accuracy seems good, and my other fingers tense up less

- Play with my hand closed completly floating, support comes from my arm, which rests on the guitar
Accuracy is a lot less and muting is a bit more difficult, but I notice the freedom of movement

I can do 16ths at 120bpm with the 4 different ways. But since I am now trying to identify the ideal way to move on with, I am not sure which one is the better future wise.

Advice is appreciated!

Hiya all,

since I joined GMC yesterday, I decided to write a little 'hello' here. I am 30yo, playing for 13 years now, and only got into technique a couple years ago. Before that, I was heavily into Slash, you know, more melodic but sloppy smile.gifยต

Then I learned of George Lynch and decided to work a bit on technique. I consider myself as an average player (16th note runs alternate picked around 120-130bpm--And No, not chromatic runs) and want to improve a bit on my alternate picking, tapping and sweeping.

I currently play on a Line6 Vetta II, an ENGL powerball and a Soldano X88R. I do have a big list amps that I bought/sold afterwards.

Bogner XTC 101B
Mesa Boogie Triaxis
Mesa Boogie Studio Pre
Mesa Boogie Formula pre
Mesa Boogie 2ch Dual rectifier
Randall RG100 G2 SC
Peavey 5150 block letter
Peavey Triple XXX
Marshall JCM2000 TSL
Marshall JCM2000 DSL
Marshall JMP-1
Marshall Silver Jubilee 2553
Marshall JCM Slash 2555
Marshall VS8100
Marshall JCM 900
Soldano SP77
Soldano X88R
ENGL Savage 120
ENGL Powerball
Line6 Vetta II
Rocktron Vendetta

As you can see, I've been a gear whore, but currently very happy with the remaining amps (although the powerball will go)

Cheers and happy playing
