  • Blue Fantasy by Roo (part 1)

    Welcome to this new lesson! This is a lead guitar etude that covers severals interesting technical and musical aspects... I have been working very hard on this last year but for some reasons I never found for it a place in my own songs set list. Mostly because it isnt actually a rock song.
    I give it a second chance here at GMC. Basically it's a classical medley of major and minor apreggios led by triplets lead shapes...

    This tune goes very fast but fortunatly it still sounds very sweet played at slow tempo. This is a difficult and intense lesson, for hard workers but well rewarding at the end. Im sure you will be happy to perform it before your friends.

    Ideally you must have a 24 frets guitar to perform it properly but I made a little update so that you could make it with any electric guitar. (Because it's a whole song, it's a bit longer than a standart lesson. So we will cut it in 3 parts.

    This is now Part I. But check out the full demo ( to have an global idea of it... You can hear in the backing track keyboards, I kept this keyboard in the training Backing tracks so that it helps to remember the song and also IMO it sounds better. )

    Theoretical topics:

    - Minor (harmonic/natural) & Major scales & arpeggios
    - chromatic scales / Mixolydian/Bebop/ diminished
    - 3/4 tempo
    - tripplet rhythm patterns

    Technical topics:

    - Alternate picking
    - Sweeping
    - legato + slides
    - Tapping (in part III)
    - High frets playing
    - Strings skipping

    (Ps: As always, in the member board section forum I will post the PowerTabs files + screenshots. )
