  • Hello GMC'ers!

    Another thread in our forum has brought my attention to the fact that interval phrasing is a very interesting and colorful way of going through a scale. So I thought I would combine 5ths with 6ths and 4ths with 7ths and 3rds to create an interesting combo having all of the used intervals in the context of a major scale.

    Aside from having all of them in one place, I discovered that this lesson is a pretty good exercise for alternate picking and string skipping development, so if you are aficionados of these techniques, I think you will enjoy learning this one.

    ...and here's what you can pick up from this lesson:

    - Right hand/ rhythmic development
    - Alternate picking
    - Intervals phrasing
    - String skipping

    Tuning: Standard E
