Excellent exercise - lots of different patterns put together!
Great stuff David! Love the variation of patterns!
Nice etude David, there's a lot of great usable licks in here (for me to steal!! )
Great work David! Sounds ace with all the different key scales!
Well done David,pure alternate madness!
great lesson !!! as muris said it's pure madness hehehe, I love it
Great stuff David! I've got a question though. I hope it's not stupid. The Key you say is E Dorian as opposed to D Major is this because of the Chord progression?
Sweet Lesson David I still suck at theory but if I played all those different modes Id still remain in the key of E Dorian ? Are there any scale patterns I can play below the 9th fret and still remain in the key of E Dorian ? Thanks - John
Eat-Sleep-andJam: The key is actually D major. E dorian happens to be a mode (second) of the D major key (as is every other scale in this exercise; C# Locarian and F# Phrygian). The best way I found to learn these modes on the guitar, as well as practically the whole neck, is to practice three note per string mode shapes. I'm not gonna repeat them here, they are summarized in various different lessons.
Hope this helps,
Oh, and btw David, very nice lesson. I think I'll incorporate that in to my practice routine
thats what i call speed
and a very clean tone
is this god?? hehe
Amazingly quick, yet so clean!!!
awesome playing! I have just registered and already there is so much to learn.
thats all i need to say
This is a sick lesson.
your right thats my biggest mess there when I think about speed I mess up and when I try holding my breath well lets say the brain dont get enough oxygen when you do try to think doy!
Yeah! Took me a long hour to nail it;)
Great exercise, and really loved the lick in vid 4, I`ll be sure to add that to a shred solo:D
is this normal if that kind of exercice give me hand pain ??
Hello Frank - it is not normal for any kind of exercise to give you hand pain - have you been practicing slowly? If not you should definitely do that. Whenever you feel pain, it is the body's way to tell you that you should stop what you are doing, see what's wrong in the way you do it and find a way to do it so that your body will not feel pain again. Let me know
well for the begining i use my first second and third finger instead of the pinky .. is that wrong ??? its just to safe some useless motion
Hey Frank - there are some people that use the pinkie and others that don't - it is not wrong not to use it, as long as you can execute the parts at the desired speed while being relaxed. Let me know how it goes
