    We all know how repetitive arpeggios can get if you play them up and down, so in this lesson, I’ll teach you how to break these familiar shapes into something cool and unique by using fragments of arpeggios to create a fresh, new sound.

    We’ll also dive into some techniques for using minor scales more interestingly, and I’ll share some of my best tips on incorporating three-note-per-string patterns for added speed and fluidity.

    It’s time to take a trip back to the ’90s as I break down a track called “Lucy’s Breath” from my 91-95 album. This song is all about energy, pace, and excitement, where simplicity in notes creates killer riffs and exciting solos. You’ll also notice some Steve Vai influence, as this song was conceived during my time living with him. So, we’ll explore those influences too.

    From the solo to the riff and chorus, we’re going to dissect it all. And there might even be a few happy accidents to uncover along the way. So let’s dive in and explore the magic of “Lucy’s Breath.” See you inside for some ’90s nostalgia!
