Hello, this is a really great lesson, but i have some problems with one part. The one where you have to rich 2-4-6, i havn't got a big hand so it's hard for me, more over the next chord following isn't easy for me.

Do you have excercice that could help me to improve this part ?

See you.

You can practice that position starting in fret 12th. There you'll finf it easier. You only have to keep your right hand doing that position for a while until you feel your hand tired. You could start with 1 minute and then you can extend the time. Then you can continue starting in the 11th, then fro 10th and so... It can takes many days to accostume you hand to this positions.

There are many stretching exercises in John Petrucci clinics (Rock Disciplines, Wild Stringdom), and also in Paul Gilbert lessons. (Ramiro is prepairing a lesson based on him with many stretching licks).

This is also a good lesson for this technique: HERE

Good luck!

Gabriel.

doing those 2-4-6 kinds of things higher up the neck and gradually moving them down helps.

Start at the 12th and shoot for moving it down 1 fret every 4 days.
