SHREDDING THE SOLO!!

When it comes time to play your guitar solo in the context of a song you've written, or anywhere for that matter, you need to be ready and armed with the proper technique and skill. We have been working very hard at developing those skills so let's put them work!!!! We are going to solo against a backing in C#. This is to prevent you from using the easy licks that come from working on open string keys.

Let's start with something very simple and familiar before heading out to Crazy Town. smile.gif

PUTTING LEVERAGE TO WORK

We can leverage our various techniques that we have learned in order to play things that we may have found difficult in the past. Using the BAR technique and Muting, along with our picking, can open up new ways of musical expression.

First up!!
Try the finger bar using the first finger to make this easier.

See you there, Todd! smile.gif Looking forward to it, even if it's the dreaded double picking!

EDIT: Sorry for taking up the "last post in the thread" if it ruins the easy accessibility for people! Hope no one gets mad.

NEW 2 ME, NEW 2 YOU?
Let's explore new ways of approaching picking patterns when they involve more than a couple of strings. Adding the third string in complex, walking patterns often puts strain on the picking hand. This can be alleviated by simply finding the spots where ECONOMIC PICKING makes the strike pattern more efficient.

First, let's warm up using a familiar pattern that we can pick each note or use our "strike once hammer many" technique on.
