LESSON 100 (AKA "THE TORTURE CHAMBER OF LIMITLESS DEATH")
Special thanks goes out to Rusty Cool....er, I mean, Ben Higgins for letting use his RACER X collab as our backing!
Here is a link to the RACER X COLLAB post in the forum.
And here is the Backing from it. Ben's backing here is truly KILLER!
Here is a spiff GUITAR RIG 5 PRESET OF BURNING DEATH GAIN for ya.
PREPARE FOR DEATH!
Let us prepare for burning death! Well, let's get our fingers going anyway
Let's take a familiar shape and play it striking only the first note on each string. Then every note. Then double picked. Of course, let's march this all the way up the neck to the 12th fret.
Let's have a look at LICK #1. Watch the video and notice where it fits in. Here is the tablature. Each position is played four times.
This next lick blends our fav "Double and Triple" styles of picking in the same lick. Some notes are triple picked (three strokes per note) and some are double picked (two strokes per note).
PAUL GILBERT DEATH
This lick is one we worked on last week in preparation for today. Hopefully, it's all smooth sailing from here!
Let's add some tapping/hammering!
Here are the basic positions. I'm just mucking about with these mostly. So let's wing it!
SCALE INVERSION DEATH
Let's use one of our fav licks. The Scale Inversion! As a bonus, let's triple pick it! Let's start with SINGLE PICKING then, double, then let's melt our hand off with TRIPLE!
CONGRATS! YOU ARE NOW A METAL GOD! Seriously guys, thanks so much for making this lesson series RAWK! It's nothing without you guys and you guys are AWESOME!
