LESSON #41 - Pentatonic Finger Torture Part III

Lesson Series by Todd Simpson

In this lesson we are going to revisit our "Pentatonic Finger Torture" lessons and expand on the ideas we worked with. This will combine hammer on, pull off, alternate picking, pinch harmonics, and tapping. Essentially, using the Pentatonic structure as a basis for exploring nearly every technique we have done to date.

Part 1: Warm Up Strike Once Hammer Many! On this first part, strike the open string and then hammer on the other notes. Keep a good palm mute but don't crush the strings or they won't ring at all.


Part 2: Shredding in A Pentatonic



Part 3:Hammer On Technique and the extended Pentatonic Scale
