Are you frustrated by unpleasant string noise muddying your guitar playing? It’s time to put an end to that nightmare! In this lesson, I’ll show you how to eliminate those annoying string noises and achieve cleaner, higher-quality pick strokes.
Not only will this improve your overall sound, but I’ll also provide you with some fantastic picking exercises to boost your confidence when improvising on the fretboard. So say goodbye to those moments when your playing falls apart and let’s get started on the path to cleaner, more confident guitar playing.
This lick is packed full of sweeping, lightning-fast runs and unexpected slides – it’s like a full-blown fireworks display across the neck. If you struggle with making your transitions from alternate picking to sweeping or sliding smooth and seamless, this lesson is a must-watch.
But that’s not all! I’ll also reveal a subtle eye-coordination trick that I personally rely on a lot in my playing. It’s all about enhancing your eye-to-hand accuracy, making it much easier to glide around the neck without making mistakes. This is a Fast Frets lesson, so you don’t need hours of free time to reap the benefits.
In this lesson, we dive deep into a massive shred solo from the McRocklin and Hutch track “Come”. This track isn’t the fastest, sitting at around 90 BPM, but as guitarists, it’s our job to inject the pace and excitement into it – this solo, packed with various techniques, does just that!
I’ll walk you through all the techniques involved – the epic bends, slick slides, smooth slurs, and the art of pushing and pulling. But here’s the real gem: I’ll show you how to take seemingly simple pentatonic notes and transform them into something so exciting that you’d never think it’s just your standard pentatonic scale. It’s a trick I love to employ, and I’m going to break it down for you step by step.
I have been playing guitar for 3 years and I have tried JamPlay, Truefire, YouTube... but the progress I have made in 1 month here with your lessons is unbelievable.”
