  • Hey guys!

    In this lesson we will play a short but intense solo that will help you in order to achieve a better picking control.

    Alternate picking, sweep picking and legato parts are the main technique of this solo.

    In general, try to reduce the tension of your wrists and your hands and I'm sure you will play it perfectly.

    Remember to play it slow before practicing it at the normal speed.
