Very cool Emir - this gave me Steve Morse vibes. Avoiding bar chords certainly gives better tone and control.
Excellet ideas , Emir! Sounds great
Very cool sound and great riffs
Love it !!!!
I really like this way of making kind of an etude, just taking a very cool riff and practicing in different fingers is a nice idea
awesome ideas emir, i really love this approach of rhythmic guitar playing, reminds me a lot the EVH work
Excellent lesson Emir... I am going to investigate that method.... It allows to create cool melodies...
Awesome ideas for riffing, exactly what I need too!
very musical! great lesson
Great riffing ideas, Emir!
Cool bro, both idea and playing!
Very useful lesson Emir, and pretty cool sounding too! Love that guitar =) Thanks man
Prava rifaza a pritom nije ni jako losa.
Interesting riffs Emir!
Awesome riffing, Emire! This lesson rocks

Thanks Zsolt and Marcus
The sounding is soo cool Emir, luv it =) The 16th with the strings skipping look pretty hard :/
nice and very useful man, well done!
I have been practicing this one since the day it went up. It has become part of my daily routine.
Its Very Hot Emir
A Creative riff!
In box2 on 7,7,7 what fingers are you useing.thax..
I'm in charge of helping out with lesson feedback when instructors are no longer available:
Emir played 7-7-7 (in video 2, on B, G and D strings) with his pinky, ring and middle finger. So:
Here is an interesting approach how you can play riff variations on different positions on the neck. I've heard it done by many great guitarists and this is a common thing when making a riff progression in modern pop/rock music.
Besides the musical idea I was also trying to make an interesting finger exercise at the same time. If you watch my fingering carefully you will notice that I was trying to avoid barre shapes. Each note is played with a different finger. Many times I am using 2nd, 3rd and 4th finger instead of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. You can clearly see that fingering in slow videos and try to play this lesson the same way.
There were also some experiments with the sound. I used a warm rock overdrive with about 20% of flanger. That gave the sound very interesting definition. The guitars are also doubled and panned 100% left and right. On top of that there is the 3rd guitar playing the exact same thing but one octave up and its volume is set to about 30%. All these guitars together sound much more powerful than if I only used one guitar. Remember this trick when recording and mixing as the sound gets much richer with this technique.
The whole lesson is played with alternate picking technique so try to play it that way if you want to execute every note with the same amount of attack.
I hope you will enjoy playing this one and see you soon.
