Hey GMC. Trying hard to learn the intro to this at least, (the solos being to complex to get my head around at this point), and I just can't seem to muster the speed. I have the accuracy down, I can play it with my eyes closed, but the speed is just killing me. Anyone else attempting this lesson? huh.gif

Try focusing on your up picking when changing strings. So, for example

------------------9-----------
-----9--10--12----12--10--
------------------------------
------------------------------
------------------------------
------------------------------

over and over again, and work the speed up, minimising the distance you move the pick. Try accenting the C# (9th fret, E string)

Yes, I think you need to minimize your hand movement, in order to get up to that kind of speed and keep it up.

And Paul Gilbert picks from the wrist on the intro, not the arm, right?

On an unrelated topic: I find it amusing how mentioning Racer X in the subject line caused this thread to get 2x as many views as all the other topics. Lesson? Preface all your post subject lines with Paul Gilbert or RacerX and watch your post views double cool.gif

--edit-- oh, it just dawned on me it could have been mentioning Daniel! Sorry sad.gif

Yeah. Gilbert always picks from the wrist. I also find it more accurate in the end smile.gif

Haha, yeah. Paul Gilbert ALWAYS gets more views, no matter what he's doing. But picking from the wrist aside, how long would you say it take a normal human to learn the lesson like that?

Paul Gilbert is a master of Alternate Picking. I'm a big fan of it myself. Check out the Great Wiki Entry that Fran put together based on my saturday video chat lessons. It will give you a good start. It really does come down to practice in the end and knowing what to practice.

HERE IS A LINK TO THE WIKI ENTRY HERE ON GMC

PRACTICE!
Todd

That's a question that only you can answer really. Everyone's different and there's no such thing as a normal human, let alone normal guitarist tongue.gif
Personally, when I was able to get that motion up to speed (see my initial reply to this thread), the main riff to Scarified posed no problems. It's a different story for the rest of Scarified though, particularly the string skipping at the end.

this so true
I can't get the intro riff because it has outside picking in it, but string skipping that doesn't have outside picking in it
I can play up to speed
of course- if you can't play the intro ,there is no reason to play the song
ya i still practice it anyway

well, I don't thin kthat if you can't play the intro you shouldn't play other parts,

for example, the arpeggios part is very fun to play and it's also a great exercise!

Agreed, the alternate picking takes some work but it shouldn't, nay mustn't, stop you from looking at the rest of it. In fact, I'd highly recommend the arpeggio section at the end. Great for large stretches, legato and string skipping.

Apreggios ARE very cool sounding, and Yngwie Malmsteen can sweep pick them in his sleep. Sadly, I can't. I'll have to do a lot of work on arpeggios and alt picking before I can handle Scarified.
