If you feel like you get stuck playing vertically up and down in the same position, then you’ll love this lesson! It’s packed full of insights into how I approach playing the guitar and how you can combine multiple techniques and sounds together to open up the entire fretboard.
We’re going to cover things like transitioning between alternate picking into sweeping, moving from chromatics into arpeggios and how to use ‘baby’ sweeps to enable licks and phrases that wouldn’t be possible otherwise and will keep your playing sounding fresh and interesting.
Does your playing turn to mush when you try to pick at a high speed? In this lesson I’m going to take you on an epic picking journey and show you everything you need to know to improve your picking speed without sacrificing note clarity.
We’re going to push your hands to their physical limits – and then I’ll show you the only exercises you ever need to know to level up your picking speed (including a pattern which has improved my picking speed more than any other exercise I’ve ever learned).
In this lesson I’ve got two licks to break down that combine alternate and sweep picking. Both use simple, familiar patterns so that we can focus on how to transition between these techniques and nail the mechanics involved.
Being able to transition seamlessly between different techniques like this makes such a huge difference to your playing, because in the real world you’re never going to do 4 bars of sweeping followed by 4 bars of tapping and so on. Instead, you should be able pick and choose techniques from your arsenal to effortlessly drop into a performance when needed – so I’ll show you exactly how I do this.
I absolutely love chromatics, when used in the right place they can add some crazy sounds to licks and solos!
When you’re practicing chromatics there are few different ways you can do it, and there are a few things that can trip you up.
In this lesson we’re going to talk about some of my favourite patterns to use, how to practice them and also how chromatics can really help improve your picking technique.
