  • Hey guys!

    In this new lesson we'll focus on the string skipping style of Mr. Paul Gilbert. The lesson begins combining alternate picking, playing quintuplets and the sextuplets, applying legatos on the C major scale and at then, it combines arpeggios playing 16th notes continuing with the string skipping technique. Remember to always work each part alone, slowly and with metronome until you have the enough confidence and security to speed up little by little. For those who don’t know the whole work of this tremendous musician, I highly recommend, out of his 3 most recognized eras, Racer X’s album Second Heat, Bump Ahead of his time in Mr. Big, and Silence followed by a Deafening Roar of his solo career.
    Have fun!!
    Let’s get on work!!
