  • Hey GMC'ers! This time I´ve prepared a lesson based on a song from my future solo album, as I did in a previous exercise called "Petrucci Melody Build Up".

    The solo starts with the B Minor Harmonic scale, with the 2nd string open, a resource used by many shredders like Petrucci, Satriani, and Timmons. Later there's a tapping section, created mainly in the E Minor Pentatonic scale, using passing notes as Flat 5 of the same scale. The idea is to visualize this Pentatonic in different ways.

    Tuning:
    * One Step Down
    * D - G - C - F - A - D
    (From thick to thin string)

    Key:
    G Major

    Chord Progression:
    B - G5 - E5

    Techniques:
    * Bends
    * Legato
    * Tapping
    * Sweep Picking
    * Let Notes Ring

    Scales:
    * B Minor Harmonic
    * E Dorian
    * G Lydian

    Remember it's not just for blues! You can adapt it to a great deal of styles and still make it sound great!

    If you have any questions:
    * Give feedback (upper-right-corner)

    Enjoy!/ Chowy
