  • Hi! This time I made a lesson in style of one of my biggest guitar influences. Vinnie Moore left something incredible for many guitarists to learn from. His technique, phrasing, modal approach, melody, accuracy and precision have to be seen and heard million times to be believed. I recommend every single album of this great guitarist if you seriously want to master modern melodic rock/shred improvising. His first solo album "Mind's Eye" was marked as best neoclassical shred album of all times but I suggest listening to every single album.

    In this lesson I tried to use many of Vinnie's usual licks. There are many (mixed) scales. For example, in the first octave D natural minor, and in the second D dorian as one whole melodic run. Also some mixtures with chromatic approach are often heard. I used many different arpeggio types to demonstrate various ways of connecting positions on the neck. There are a couple of tapping and tremolo bar licks in the last couple of bars so I think you have pretty good amount of material to work on. I have to admit that I used one Paul Gilbert lick as well but it perfectly fits in the song atmosphere so I decided to leave it:)

    I would mark this lesson as the hardest I have made so far but at the same time my favorite. If you are not familiar with this kind of playing I suggest that you take a couple of bars a day until you master them. That way you can possibly get the whole piece in about a week if you spend some serious time practicing.

    The lesson is mainly inspired by Vinnie's song "Meltdown" which has very similar riff and structure.

    Enjoy playing!
