    Want to know how to get more speed and dexterity in your playing? Correctly adjusting your hand and thumb positioning to suit what you’re playing is something that I’ve seen guitarists get wrong time and time again and can unlock massive gains in a very short amount of time.

    That’s why in this lesson I’m going to focus on what’s going on round the back of the neck, showing you exactly what I do – in full detail – as I break down various techniques. Bending, sweeping, tapping, lead playing, riffing… everything you do is going to improve – a lot!

    Welcome to this lesson where I’ll be dissecting a slide-based lick that’s all about dynamic alternate picking and the magic of outside notes. The result is a swing-style vibe with more than a few hints of EVH thrown in for good measure.

    Within this lick, there are a wide range of techniques and ideas we can explore. From commanding big bends to playful triplets, and bluesy sequences featuring a unique upstroke technique, each element contributes to crafting a truly distinct sound. Rest assured, I’ll break down the entire thing for you every step of the way.
