Very useful. At this moment I am working on a legato piece (part of the intro to Sails of Charon) and I sometimes get frustrated with it and just alternate pick it. I think this lesson will be perfect in developing patience for developing legato. Thank you very much!
This should prove very useful Muris, great job man.
Nice lesson, very useful for beginners !
Great lesson! I definitely need help with my alternate picking, so the upcoming lessons in this series should do me well.
Very useful lesson Muris!!
Great lesson Muris!
Great lesson, sounds great to
Great job bro
Great lesson Muris - very useful concept !
great lesson. i was looking for beginner lagato lick that sounded good enough to inspire me to practice legato for a long time now.
Nice lesson Muris First lesson with new guitar! Looks even more pleasant than your "older" one, IMO.
Thanks guys, glad you've found it useful!
Great job Muris!
I just realized how bad i am at legato, it seems like i am an beginner again..
very cool exercises!
Cool lesson, not only for beginners!
Red, if you have any problems with it
please do let me know!
useful lesson Muris.great job
Hey, I find I can do some level 5 things quite well, but I guess pull-offs are my great weakness in guitar playing. Especially my ring-finger is a real weakling, so I just practice some of this stuff !
Very nice lesson, once again, Muris !
Great lesson as always Muris, I love the backing!
Another great lesson Muris and very useful! This is something I need to work on!!! Thanks!!
Alex, ring finger is kind of attached to pinky and it's not
fully independent to it takes some more practicing
to get totally in shape, sort of speak, glad you like the lesson.
Very interesting lesson Muris!!! Legato is my favourite technique!!! And alternate picking too, and sweep picking too and...hahah
Very useful Muris:)
Oh, sorry, I actually meant pinky-finger, but I guess my ring-finger could use some work-out too
Hey Muris, awesome lessons as always!
Awesome guitar too! What are the specs? Sorry if you've already answered this in your board, but I haven't been around for a while, so if there's a thread could you post the link?
Nice one Muris!
So how should I pick during the legato parts? The video confuses me.
I'm not really sure what you mean by how
but you can pick anyway you want, all upstrokes, all downstrokes,
mixing, doesn't matter actually cause there is plenty of time
for any of those options,
just be sure to pick ONLY first note on each string.
great Job Muris, very useful exercise
Thank you, Muris ! I had actually bookmarked that lesson so I could be able to start learning this one ! You are very helpful !
You're very welcome, let me know if you need anything else.
Great exercise indeed
It has improved my accuracy and coordination a great deal ever since adding it to my technique routine.
That's great to hear!!
Today's lesson is for all our beginners out there and it's gonna help you with legato and picking at the same time. The idea is very simple as we play same lick twice using legato and then picking.
You'll notice that your muting would have to change or adapt for one of these technique and that's good test to prepare us for clean and articulated improvising later on.
Tempo is 80 bpm, it's in key of D tho it modulates into key of Dm near the end, 4/4 bar.
For my tone I used Guitar Rig 3, ask for the preset in my Instructor Board if you need it and I'll post it. :)
