this lesson rock ! I love this kind of licks..
Once Again a great lesson Pavel, the second i get home from school im gonna be learning these licks!
Keep pushing out the awesome tunes!
Great!, it reminds me of Joe Satriani a bit!
In the second bar in part 2 of the lesson, I have a hard time making the stretch when I do the E and F# chords. Is it bad technique to barre the fifth and octave with my middle finger?
wow, great lesson Pavel!!Gonna work on this one for a while!
@Burzum: i would never suggest that kind of barre. Better spend some time on stretching and it will greatly improve your chording and overall fingering.
Practice stretches 15 minutes every day and you'll get it down in no time.
Thanks for kind words guys!
Excellent as always Pavel. Should keep me busy for a while.
Nice lesson Pavel. Could you explain what the L's represent on the last chord of the second lesson?
wow...well on the 2nd part...pffff...i cant do the slide with the pinky to fret 11....my fingers 2 big or something....idk..but i cant do it
L represents a TIED NOTE - it means if we have something like this:
Let's say those are 2 8th notes. You pick the first note - and don't pick the next because it's tied - you just add the duration of the tied note to the first note. So this example would be 1 4th note because we have 8th + tied 8th note.
I kinda suck at theory explanation in english (i wish i could tell it to you in Croatian).
If you still don't understand what it means maybe Andrew could explain it as he kicks ass in explanations
These tied notes are especially useful in creating weird rythm patterns where you have all kinds of different note duration.
brilliant pavel i just wish i could get the hang of the six notes per beat any tips
Excellent lesson Pavel. Much appreciated. I especially like the new format (showing left hand followed by right hand). I can't tell you how much time I spend looking at and following your technique. This should save me a ton of time. Also, Guitar Pro tabs are great, love that program. If I can make one suggestion, that in my mind would clinch it, it would be, can you add left hand fingering to the tab. I started playing it wrong, and didn't understand why I was having so much trouble making the shifts. After looking at the video, I finally realized, I was using the wrong fingering.
Hey ch00ch00man! I'll try to work on fingering for the next lesson but as i often say in the lessons fingering works different for every player so i like to let it be handled by a player himself. But no probs. I'll try to make it for the next lesson although it's a lot of work so i don't promise anything. I'll do my best!
Pavel, far be it for me to disagree with the master , and I do believe that anatomical differences and limitations do exist that make it difficult for some to do the things others do naturally. But barring that, I also believe that there is a 'right' way of doing something (or at least preferred). So, while I wouldn't necessarily say that your fingering would be the only way to play a piece, studying your videos, I've come to the conclusion that its the 'right' way (for me at least).
Pavel, I have a really stupid question, if I may. How firmly do you hold the pick? I find that the looser I hold the pick, the smoother I play. The problem with that is I feel like the thing is gonna fall out of my hand. Is there an optimal pressure you should apply?
Hmmm....is there a pressure-meter for guitar?? LOL. NO, man really i don't know. I press it just enough to pick. It changes during the playing. Depends on what i play. When i play sweeps i barely press it at all. If i play speed riffs i press it pretty much for artificial harmonics to sound, if i play alternate picking runs i press it medium strenght. Just play the way it's comfortable to you. There is no constant pressure. It changes.
pavel, what are the effects that u add when u are playing the solo? or is it just clean?
Simple distortion, a bit of delay and slight reverb from the amp.
Unfortunately you can't buy that effect at a local guitar-shop
One of the main things in clean playing is mastering right hand muting and having the left hand positioned correctly on the fretboard.
pretty sick sound
nice, when r the next vids goin in?
Very classical sounding licks. beautiful!
great melody Pavel!!!!So coool....So coool....Excellent!.....
