  • Hey Guys!

    This time I've prepared a solo for you which utilises a lot of picking patterns that I like to use in my own playing.
    It's a combination of alternate picking, economy picking and legato.

    I wanted to do something like this to show you that you can come up with interesting licks without having to pick every note.
    You can go far with a little bit of technique and a willingness to experiment.

    Notice that the percussion track is very sparse! Scared? Don't be. You'll be surprised how soon you can lock in with the groove.

    There's not much more to say apart from to remind you to study the Guitar Pro file carefully to get the exact picking patterns.

    Enjoy walking (or shredding...) in my shoes!

    Tempo: 110bpm

    Key: A Minor
