PUTTING IT TO GOOD USE

Let's put some of our recent work to good use and play some licks over a backing track. Today's work is based on a collaboration I"m working on with Brazilian Guitarist Marcos De Ros. If you are not from Brazil, you may not know of him. If you are from Brazil, you probably do smile.gif Here is the track with both of us going back and forth.

https://soundcloud.com/techniqueswithtodd/marcos-de-ros-todd-simpson-shred-club-collab

Let's isolate a small chunk of the backing in D MAJOR, (yes, D Major, it's a first for me I know)

here is a loopable chunk of the backing.

I created a spiff 11 Rack Lead Patch just for this which you can download below.
(Requires Avid 11 Rack)

Here is a demo of just the patch with the PHASER turned on.


--------------------------

FIRST UP!!!!

Let's Start with something simple. How about a "Tripeggio" pull off combined with a scale inversion.

Now let's do a scale run/climb. You can choose to "Slide" or not. Your choice. Try some vibrato on the final note which is a "Root Note" of D.

PICKING OR HAMMERING?

Some licks are tough at first With these, let's try to hammer on and pick the open strings. Then we will get to licks that need every note picked. However, you can always use a hammer on or pull off to fill in until you can pick every note.

Let's start with something simple.

TRAVERSE PICKING
One of the hardest things to master about picking is "Traverse" Picking, or picking across strings. I've created a series of workouts to focus on this issue. Let's dig in!

TO TRAVERSE OR NOT TOO TRAVERSE

Let's pick up where we left off without "Traverse Picking" Or "Picking Across Strings" work. Focus on your picking form on these. PALM MUTE EVERYTHING. Stop each note from ringing. Control any errant string noise. Feel free to ask questions smile.gif

Let's start with something easy and familiar and work up from there.
