  • Us guitarists are all guilty of sometimes putting technique first before melody. That's OK sometimes. Shred guitar is an awesome thing and many of you share the same opinion. However, playing fast and technical can get boring to the listener and frustrating to the non guitarist audience.

    The secret to making the most of your chops is to balance them and use them in a smart way. To do that, we'll try to alternate between nice melodic ideas with faster technical passages.

    The key of today's lesson is in A Mixolydian. I tried to use a few different techniques in the shred passages such as legato, sweeping and tapping.

    Practice well and use these ideas in your own music. Have fun!
