  • Hello guys and welcome this new GMC lesson!

    This lesson is intended for you to develop strength in your pull offs. I have made an exercise based on the dominant and root chords of many different keys with a symphonic backing track.

    At first it might be a little difficult or uncomfortable to play it clean and accurately, but believe me, from this little exercise you can gain a lot of fluidity in your playing and start gaining that smooth tone in your fingers that many great guitarist have.

    It’s basically a repeated pattern that involves two positions. First position consists on fingers 1,2 and 4, the first three notes of a Phrygian scale. And the other position used here is a minor position that uses fingers 1, 3 and 4. Once you master these two positions you’ll be able to play many difficult passages from guitarists such as Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, John Petrucci among others.

    There are slower versions of the backing tracks so you can have a different feel to the piece.

    Let me know of questions!
