  • Welcome to my new lesson!

    This time the focus is on coming up with more ideas for fast runs using 32nd notes.

    As guitar players I think we can often have a bias towards triplets, or groups of 3, because we make a lot of use of 3 note per string scale shapes. This can mean that we run out of ideas when we need to play fret spanning runs that are in a 16th note or 32nd note rhythm.

    We have different techniques as options. Picking and legato are the two that I have used but you could take it further by adding tapping, hybrid picking or economy picking. The method of locomotion is down to you! In this lesson, I show you how you can combine picking and legato to approach 32nd note shredding in a different way.

    Not only will you get some more ideas you will also work on:

    -Speed / Stamina
    -Hand co-ordination
    -Legato
    -Alternate picking

    If you are interested in the faster side of guitar playing then you owe it to yourself to check this out and expand your ideas for running around the neck!
