  • Hi all! :) With today's lesson, I thought we could take a look into the world of string-skipping. Basically, the string skipping technique is just what the name implies. Jumping over strings while keeping continuous notes. It's mainly used in more advanced and complex solos, but it can also be quite efficiently used in simpler melodic playing, like I've tried to accomplish with this lesson.

    This lessons isn't all that difficult if you're already familiar and well-versed in this technique, but hopefully it will be challenging and good practice for advanced beginners and intermediate players who is still new to this.

    Well, enough typing. Let's skip on to it. :)

    BPM: 125
    TimeSig: 4/4
    Scale: E Aeolian

    As usual I've included a few backingtracks and a guitarpro-file. Hope you'll like it! :)
