Thomas McRocklin started playing the guitar at the age of 4!
By the time he was 7, he was already performing on stage, often in places where children weren’t normally allowed. He’d have to wait in his dad’s car, right up until the last moments, until it was time to grab his axe, jump on stage and start shredding!
In this lesson I’m going to teach you a lick that uses blazing 3 note per string patterns and combines pentatonic and minor sounds as you switch between the strings.
When most people try combining pentatonic and minor sounds they tend to play a blues lick followed by a minor lick or vice versa, but I prefer to jump back and forth between the two scales seamlessly to create unique sounding phrases.
I do this a lot in my playing and I hope that it will inspire you to create some unique sounding licks of your own!
Do you find yourself stuck playing the same scales and patterns all the time?
In this lesson we’re going to pick a few different keys to improvise in but we’re going to completely ban the obvious and comfortable scale positions you’re used to! Instead I’ll show you some cool new shapes and patterns to use which will force you into using new note choices and phrasing options to help you break out of your habits and breath new life into your playing!
In this lesson you’re going to learn some killer riffs and techniques that will push your prog playing to the limit. Starting with some simple progressions we’ll jam together and exchange solos then transform those chords into super tight, advanced prog riffs.
If you’re still thirsty for more then come join me on a deep dive into sweeping arpeggios and how to lock your sweeping in time with a drum beat.
