Lesson Series by Todd Simpson

In this lesson we are going to focus again on our Alterate and Economic Picking as well as soloing in the D Minor Scale.

First, lets warm up a bit and work on our endurance.

Part 1: Warm Up



Now lets work on our speed.

Part 2: Working up Speed.


Lastly, let's apply some of what we've learned in our lessons so far and work on soling. We are going to use the Key of "D Minor". Here is a handy scale chart generated by the GMC SCALE GENERATOR.
