Let's warm up and get going!
Let’s do our usual Finger Yoga stretches. Here is a link to the video for references.
GABE's LED ZEP COLLABORATION
In this lesson we are going to use Gabe's killer LED ZEP collab as our backing. Here is the link to the Collab.
Here is a link to my youtube vid with solo take. These are the licks we are going to try to work on today.
This is a very simple shape. Let's run this up and down the neck all the way back to fret number 1. First, let's do it with one pick sroke per string and then let's alternate pick. We are going to use this shape today in our licks.
LICK #1 - A MINOR INVERSION (QUICK REVIEW OF PREVIOUS MATERIAL)
You guys should know this lick back and forth by now. So let's single and double pick this.
LICK #2 - Pentatonic Fun
This lick has few notes but lots of picking. Play it palm muted.
LICK #3 - Single String Work
We have done lots of this so it should be pretty easy to pick this up. Let's play this on a few different strings to work on our reach and let's double pick it.
