  • Hi! Recently I have recieved many requests for more lessons similar to Yngwie Malmsteen style. My last lesson in style of Yngwie seemed to be popular so I have come up with another neoclassical sounding melody.

    Here I am introducing an interesting approach for playing arpeggio triads using slide with little finger. The scales (arpeggios) are very simple: Harmonic Minor, Phrygian Dominant and Diminished. This is the key of A minor and you can think of the whole thing as one scale - A Harmonic Minor. The rest is the same scale just diffent modes of it where your root chages according to the chord.

    This is a great exercise for your pinky and if you need more strenght in the left hand. There are some big stretches and you need to be very concentrated in order to execute every arpeggio properly. The picking is your choice but make sure you don't miss any of the slided notes. Please practice slowly and that way you can save so much time :)

    note: There is a 24th fret used once. If you have guitar with 22 frets you can bend the 22nd up to 24th instead of playing a slide.

    Happy practicing.
