  • Hi

    This time I have made alternate picking etude that has different approach than usual 3 notes per string patterns where alternate picking usually works the best. You don't need to use this technique in everyday playing for 1 or 2 notes per string if you don't want to but this etude can help you improve your overall picking feel and coordination between hands. This one is designed to be alternate picked so if you ever come across such patterns, this etude can help you deal with that. There is a bit of string skipping included as well as 1 note per string. This 1 note per string is the most difficult part (long Am arpeggio in the lesson) so you need to concentrate for this one as much as possible. Use palm muting to avoid any noise and to get more dynamics in picking. Combine muted and open notes for a better feel.

    This lesson is mostly in A natural minor scale (Aeolian). A couple of times I play G# note which is A harmonic minor just go get that neoclassical flavour. In the bridge section of the solo there is a simple diminished arpegio and that's all.

    Almost all notes are played in 8th triplets. I have some quarter notes when finishing phrases but the whole piece is in triplet feel. The tempo is 170.

    I hope you'll enjoy playing this one and see you soon.
