  • Hello GMC! Welcome to my new neoclassical lesson. This one is a great alternate picking exercise to improve your picking precision and to increase your speed.

    The lesson has been inspired by the music of guitar players like Vinnie Moore, Tony Macalpine and many other Shrapnel Records shred guitar players. The continuous use of sixteenth notes makes this one an interesting speed lesson and the apparition of sextuplets after playing some eight and quarter notes makes this tune a good choice to practice stamina.

    You’ll find that this lesson’s tonality modulates three times. It first starts in G minor, and then it modulates to A# using the F# dim chord as a dominant connector between the two keys. Finally the G# works as a secondary dominant to modulate to C# major key.

    Tempo: 120 bpm
