In this lesson we use the same shape on three strings. We use an "Inversion" pattern to play the scale in groups of four notes. It's a real finger twister and doesn't conform to any natural scale but it works great in solos!! Once you get used to this pattern, it can be applied to any mode/scale that you like. Since the shape is the same on all three strings, your fingers don't have to make any "shift" which helps reduce the difficulty just a pinch since it's plenty tricky all by itself. It's in the key of E right now using the root note on the 14th fret (E). You can move it to any key you like just by moving the pattern to any place on the neck you want. The place you land, in this lick, should be whatever key you want to solo in. If you already know about scale inversions, this one should be no problem at all. DEALERS CHOICE ON PICKING!!!! Pick it any way that works and you don't have to pick each note if you would rather hammer on instead.

BACKGROUND / COMMENTS: This one mixes a blues scale with a dorian scale and creates something new. Give it a whirl!

Hit me up with any questions!

Nailed it!!! That's the lick. It's one of my fave solo licks. The delay/reverb is maybe a tad much for a demonstration vid, but I could still hear you playing so it worked out. Good technique all the way through on one. Try to use it in a solo asap!!! You clearly have this one well in hand and you just..
LEVELED UP!!!

Thanks Todd,
Sorry about the delay, I had been using that patch for something else, my ears were used to it, I noticed when I played the video back but was out of time.

This one may be just a pinch green. I know you can play with more precision than we have in this vid. It's quick licks, but I know you are a capable player. You can play way better than this, no doubt iin my mind. This is an "Inversion" style lick which is a very important bit. Don't worry so much about playing it briskly, just like bootcamp, no points for speed. Just points for playing the lick as close as possible to the original vid. Give this one another quick go!!

BINGO!!! I knew it smile.gif You can do this one picking each note or picking now and then. Either way is fine. The first vid was just a pinch less than the precision I know you can play with is all. I get the sense that you are a bit impatient with yourself sometimes and want to jump ahead just a pinchand sort of "get on with it" instead of digging in and making a given lick, rec, etc. "Yours". This is a good example of playing the bit in a variety of ways, all of which work well. Nice!!You just..

LEVELED UP!!
