  • Hello there for the first time!

    My name is Emir Hot and it is great to be here. I find this website a great place for both instructors and visitors/subscribers. I will try to show you many different styles and techniques that I use. Hopefully you will find many of my lessons interesting and educational. Thanks to all of my friends who recommended me as an instructor and also big thanks to GMC team for a great response.

    Let’s start with some economy picking technique which I mainly use when playing arpeggios in horizontal position (check pictures of arpeggio patterns on slow videos). This short example sounds like a very straight forward minor melody (almost neoclassical) played in repetitive patterns – mostly in triplets. Very good one for improving left/right hand coordination and getting the right feel for triplets when played fast.

    I tried to provide all necessary files for you so I think that no special explanation is needed for this one. There is backing track in 4 different speeds + jam track. If you like to set tempo yourself there is a Guitar Pro file with all accompanying instruments from the backing track so you can easily slow the tempo down and still have some background music. I also included all up/down stroke signs for picking below each note in the GP file.

    Make sure you get those signs right as they are almost the whole point of the lesson. My advice is to practice slowly – as slow as it is enough not to make mistake. Later you can increase tempo until you reach the speed suitable for your playing needs. If you still have questions feel free to ask on the forum. Every feedback is also welcome to help me understand what kind of lessons you would like to have in the future.
