Spot on Chowy - this is so much Romeo. The synth overdub is a really neat trick as well!
SICK Just plain awesomeness
yeah the synth makes the sound pop!
This technique is really versatile, you can really play any arpeggio you want with it. It's a really good complement to sweeps
Great lesson Chowy! It has the escence of the Romeo style. Awesome work
aweosme playing vieja!
Cool! My little brother says it reminds him of space. I was listening to you while he was inventing something from cardboard and duct tape. He's like, "Hey, that sounds cool!" and came over here.
I love Symphony X. Awesome lesson, Chowy
Great tapping lesson and good-old-tshirt
sounds awesome man, great tapping lines!
Just amazing, yet again! Good lord man! Your technique is just BEYOND. The control, the speed, the dexterity, the musicality, it's all there. Nicely done.
This time I'm pleased to be playing something similar to the style of Michael Romeo from Symphony X (highly recommendable stuff).
It's all about concentrating on min7 and maj7 arpeggios. There's also a semi-diminished and everything's played with string skipping and tapping, 3 notes per string, plus legato.
As I always tell you, first practise slowly and listen to yourself. Try to avoid noise, but if you can't be clean at first don't worry. The important thing is to refine your hammer-ons and pull-offs in the tapping to their best. Your left hand needs to apply enough strength to make it sound really neat.
Once you've incorporated the technique, try changing the chords, including tensions or out-of-scale notes. It's really useful to visualize these figures when playing melodies - usually, they sound really cool. You could do the same thing, but using 2 notes per string without tapping.
I hope you like and practise this exercise. It will make your fingers really fly!!
See ya next time. Cheers!
