    We’ve all heard guitarists perform a solo with nothing memorable or exciting about it. Maybe that’s even what it feels like when you begin to improvise – it’s too easy to fall into the trap of noodling at the same pace, using the same notes and not really changing much.

    What if you could still use the patterns and shapes that you already know, but transform those boring licks into something memorable and exciting? That’s what this lesson is all about, and that’s exactly what I’m going to show you. Let’s go!

    Over the past few weeks, I’ve made a ton of progress all at once. My fretting ability, power and dexterity on the fretboard have all increased at the same time – even my creativity has improved. I wanted to share my process so you can see exactly how I was able to make so much progress in a relatively short space of time so that you can do the same!

    Included in this lesson are 3 very challenging guitar exercises. These are excellent for your fretting hand dexterity and alternate picking, but what I really love about these exercises is that they remain open to interpretation. This gives you the opportunity to get creative and figure out the best way to cross the fretboard, which is part of the reason they’re so effective.

    Introducing open strings into your playing can sound fantastic in the right place and this technique is a great way to spice up licks, whether you’re playing Blues, Country or futuristic Shred riffs.

    It can also sound downright awful if you get it wrong, so in this lesson, I’m going to show you 5 simple and fun ways to introduce open strings into your playing using patterns and approaches that you already know.
