  • Hey GMC'ers! Welcome to the lesson for my first intermediate 8-finger tapping solo! In this lesson you will learn a solo that will help you to figure out a way to apply your 8-finger tapping technique. Now, you will learn some more complex phrases, arpeggios and some melodic lines that might seem as a totally new approach to your playing style and knowledge.

    In the lesson part 2 you have an example of combining arpeggios with melodic sequences, arranged into a string skipping 2 + 2 and 2 + 3 notes per string model. Part 4 contains a repeating 3 + 4 notes per string model that will require solid precision in your little finger.

    The following part is a continuation to part 4, skipping the third string, descending to the forth string by scale. The sixth part is a 2 + 2 notes per string d minor 6 arpeggio, ascending and descending.

    Part seven is an ascending and descending blues sequence, using 2 + 2 notes per string minor pentatonic/blues scale position. Part eight and nine is ascending by four notes, using the mixolydian mode. Part ten is descending by minor scale, taking one step back every eight notes.
