  • Hey GMC!

    I use a backbeat rhythm for this exercise of Modern Blues. Also, I use an aggressive form to play with the pick, so I get a more incisive, almost percussive sound. Sounds like the style of a guitarist that I really like: Scott McKeon.

    Music Style:
    Modern Blues

    Tonality & Scales:
    G pentatonic minor

    backbeat, percussive picking, hybrid picking

    I used a Fender Vintage Strat with overdrive.

    Standard Tuning: E, A, D, G, B, E

    Tempo & Beat:
    100bpm (Slows 50bpm)

    Chord Progression:
    |G5 F5G5| G5 Bb5 | x2
    |  C5   | D5 CBb | 
    |G5 F5G5| G5  F5 | 
    |G5 F5G5| G5 Bb5 | x2
    |  C5   | D5 CBb | 
    |G5 F5G5| G5  F5 |      
    |       |        |
    |G5 F5G5| G5 F5G5|
    |  G5   |
