  • Hi GMC!
    I’m back again, and for this lesson I’ve prepared a song in Paul Gilbert´s style.
    He’s been a great inspiration to me, mostly due to his amazing techniques.
    In this lesson I use open position pentatonic. These positions sound great and are often used by Mr Gilbert himself. You can find a lot of examples in several of Mr Big’s songs, such as "Rock is over" and "Colorado Bulldog".
    In this first part, you’ll find section A and B. Both sections have riffs played in unison with the bass. Part A is composed in D Blues Scale and D Dorian. Part B is composed over F Blues Scale and F Dorian. The tempo is quarter = 98. Pay attention to the syncopation and the melody. As I usually say, you should practice slowly at first and then try to increase the speed slowly. I hope you enjoy it! To be continued….
