WARMUP HOMEWORK!

[attachment=28727:124gbonus.gp5]
[attachment=28728:homework_warmup.jpg]

ECONOMIC ASCENT

People often ask how I manage to get decent speed during scale runs. The trick for me is using Economic Picking to ascend, and alternate to descend. Let's ascend.

[attachment=28729:125a.gp5]
[attachment=28730:125a.jpg]

And of course......

[attachment=28731:125b.gp5]
[attachment=28732:125b.jpg]

Once we work up some speed and move around. Let's work on our endurance.

[attachment=28733:125c.gp5]
[attachment=28734:125c.jpg]

Try to use this in your own playing to see if it can push you over the speed barrier!

PERFECT SYMMETRY

Let's focus on ALTERNATE PICKING and not use any Economic Picking for a change. These workouts are well suited for working on your Alternate Picking while Traversing Strings. This is one of the toughest bits to pick up at first.

Hopefully this pattern is familiar and you can focus on your picking.

With all of these today lets'

*Move them up the neck.
*Try them on different strings.

SHREDDING IN CONTEXT (Not just for it's own sake)

An accusation commonly aimed at "Shredders" is that they make pointless use of SPEED. In some cases this is quite true. So lets look at using the techniques we've learned in the context of an actual solo using an actual scale. In this case C# and B Minor (Shred Fingering of course)

OF BLUES NOTES AND BENDS

You can bend it or you can just fret it. Same note, two different vibes. Let's fret first, then bend later. So let's build our pattern over time.

Let's add some STRETCH in.

First let's warm up a bit. Let's try this picked and then only striking on the open string. Also, let's try it on all the strings.

WARMING UP TO THE CRAZY TRAIN

Before jumping the rails, let's start slow. In this shape, use your first finger and pinky. Then we will make it harder by moving our pinky out (wider stretch) one fret at a time repeating the entire pattern.

Attached File  132warmup.gp5 ( 1.68K ) Number of downloads: 76

Attached Image

*Try on different strings
*Try a double pick version.

WORKING YOUR STRETCH FOR RYTHM PARTS

Last time we worked on lead licks and our stretch. Let's work a rythm part.

*Try on different strings
*Try a double pick version

Attached File  132a.gp5 ( 1.57K ) Number of downloads: 80

Attached Image

Let's transition to a lead lick built around a blues scale and give our stretch a break. This will focus more on tight precision and and our "back and forth" technique.

Attached File  132b.gp5 ( 1.6K ) Number of downloads: 80

Attached Image

*Try at different positions on the neck
*Try a double pick version

Lastly, let's do another blues/pentatonic lick, but this time lower on the neck and using open strings. This is a VERY simple pattern and it's mostly about the picking. Focus on your right hand and PICK EACH NOTE and palm mute.

Attached File  132c.gp5 ( 1.57K ) Number of downloads: 76

*Try in key of E and A
*Try a double pick version


Practice!

THE LIGHT AND THE DARKNESS


Let's explore the difference between Major/Ionian sounds and some Non-Scales/Techniques employed in some of the more extreme forms of Metal.

BEN HIGGINS has started a KKKIIILLLLLEEERRRR Extreme Metal Collab, on which this lesson is partially based. Here is the link, GO JOIN UP SOLDIER!!! Here is the link to sign up!

MAJOR MOTION

The Major scale has a sort of "Happy" sound to it. Making it the exact opposite of the bits I"m using in the solo on Bens Metal Collab. But before we explore thee darker side, let's get happy and play some Major!!!!

DARK CLOUDS IN A FROZEN HELL OF NORTHERN DARKNESS

Here is BENS backing track.

Now let's go the other direction and look at a couple of licks from the collab solo. to be clear these are not really scales. They are more like a physical attack on the guitar itself with little regard for musical tonality, melody, harmony, structure, etc. In short, "Blackened", or taking influence from one of the more extreme forms of Metal, which is it's most primitive form rejects Harmony/Melody/Scales as a general principle in many cases.

STRING TRAVERSE AND CHANGING GEARS SMOOTHLY

A student recently compared changing strings to changing gears in a car. It's a good analogy and works well here. Let's do a few simple shapes that will give us some practice at string traverse. Be patient with yourself.


**NOTICE THE PICK STROKE NOTATION: THATS THE ENTIRE POINT OF THIS LESSON!!!

(Make sure to use TWO DOWNSTROKES IN A ROW (Economic Picking) Where notated.)

LICKS YOU CAN USE

Let's take all this and use it in a SOLO LICK. This lick will work in any key, just move the first finger to the fret of the key in question. MAKE SURE TO TAKE NOTE OF THE PICK STROKE NOTATION smile.gif

*Use the picking pattern from 138E and apply it to any scale you like.

*Play the lick in 138D on every string starting with the low E. (HINT: The fret shift doesn't start until the B string. )
