Kjutte - Shreds And Sweeps SI Lesson
My name is Kjetil Larsen. I live in Norway, Drammen. Quite close to the capital Oslo.
I've played the guitar for exactly 4 years, and my favorite guitarists are: Shawn Lane, Vinnie Moore, Tony Macalpine, Gary Moore, Robert Marcello, etc.
I work as an automation-electrician (PLC and such.) On freetime, I mostly spend my time with wife, kid, computer games and of course the guitar.
Shape 1 - Cmaj7add aug5 arpeggio
This is a Cmaj7 arpeggio shape, with an added augmented 5th. It really adds some tension. You can add this note in several places, but as I am not great with sweeps and economy picking, I made a seperate slow take for this. The last slide is just a chromatic, I added it 'cus it sounded cool.
Shape 2 - Diatonic shred
Easy to learn-shred line with some string skipping.
As always, switch between max speed and max clean speed to learn this.
That way you practise strength&stamina aswell as syncronization.
Shape 3 - Diatonic sweeps
Same principle here.
I start off with an descending Bmin7 arpeggio, ascending Cmaj7, descending Dmaj7 and finally ascending Amaj7.
Shape 4 - Modulating Arpeggios
This is a Maj7 arpeggio with wholetone intervals. I think it sounds quite interesting.
Shape 5 - Finally, the slow aug5 arpeggio with octaves
And that's that. I hope this gives some motivation and ideas to you guys!
