  • Hi GMCers, welcome to another lesson from me. To this lesson, I was thinking of using the A harmonic minor scale and try to compose an etude with alternate picking & string skipping.

    A few years ago, I was in love with the neo-classical style, so I had learned a lot of licks and little pieces from Paganini.

    I think there´re some ideas still in my head because when I play the harmonic minor scale, it´s too difficult to scape from his classical sound. :P So, I hope you find interesting this lesson. Have fun and ask if you need some help.

    Used scales: D minor, A harmonic minor.
    Bar: 4/4
    Notes: Eighth.
    Tune Down: 1/2 step
    TEMPO: 210 bpm

    As some of you know, I use POD xt to rec all my lessons. In my board you´ll find my presets ;)
    On the other hand, here´re the settings for people who wants.

    Amp model: based on Soldano Slo-100
    Drive 9
    Bass 4.9
    Middle 5
    Treble 6.8
    Presence 7

    Small room Reverb:
    Predelay 0%
    Decay 42 %
    Tone 50%
    Mix 43%

    Remember: Same settings in another gear will produce a different sound, but, as we´ve talked at the forum, this could be cool for some members, so enjoy!

    If you have any problems let me know. Take care. See you all around.
