Hi!

My name is Kjetil Larsen.
I live in Norway, Drammen. Quite close to the capital Oslo.

I've played the guitar for exactly 4 years, and my favorite guitarists are:
Shawn Lane, Vinnie Moore, Tony Macalpine, Gary Moore, Robert Marcello, etc.

I work as an automation-electrician (PLC and such.)
On freetime, I mostly spend my time with wife, kid, computer games and of course the guitar.

Here is a picture of me and my then newborn son, Alexander. smile.gif

Attached Image

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Shape 1 - Cmaj7add aug5 arpeggio.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is a Cmaj7 arpeggio shape, with an added augmented 5th. It really adds some tension.
You can add this note in several places, but as I am not great with sweeps and economy picking, I made a seperate slow take for this. The last slide is just a chromatic, I added it 'cus it sounded cool. smile.gif

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Shape 2 - Diatonic shred
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Easy to learn-shred line with some string skipping.
As always, switch between max speed and max clean speed to learn this.
That way you practise strength&stamina aswell as syncronization.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Shape 3 - Diatonic sweeps
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Same prinsiple here.
I start off with an descending Bmin7 arpeggio, ascending Cmaj7, descending Dmaj7 and finally ascending Amaj7.

Attached File  Diatonic_Sweeps.gp5 ( 1.81K ) Number of downloads: 235

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Shape 4 - Modulating Arpeggios
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is a Maj7 arpeggio with wholetone intervals. I think it sounds quite interesting.

Attached File  Video_11.wmv ( 5.2MB ) Number of downloads: 257

Attached File  modulating_maj7_arpeggio___page_1.bmp ( 824.51K ) Number of downloads: 265


--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Shape 5 - Finally, the slow aug5 arpeggio with octaves.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Self explanatory.

Attached File  Video_13.wmv ( 2.99MB ) Number of downloads: 294

Attached File  Slow_maj7_add_aug5.gp5 ( 1.63K ) Number of downloads: 235

Attached File  slow_maj7_add_aug5___page_1.bmp ( 560.01K ) Number of downloads: 259


--------------------------------------------------------------------------
And that's that. I hope this gives some motivation and ideas to you guys!

Best regards
Kjetil
