Ok, so im getting pretty good at improvisation with the pentatonic scale. But I really want to break into 3 note per string improvisation ala Paul Gilbert Style. I was wondering if any of the instructors could guide me in the right path towards learning more about this! Can anyone recommend any specific lessons ?

thanks biggrin.gif

One thing that is really helping me with 3nps is Pavels alt picking #1 it cycles through all 7 3nps boxes, great for learning them.

Why not? It's just a bunch of lessons based on different "directions".
