This special guest lesson features a blazing solo breakdown from Oliver “Liverplate” Christian, the super-talented instrumental guitarist from Brazil who is making huge waves in the industry.
As well as fully breaking down this fun and impressive solo, he also includes lots of cool insights into the way that he approaches playing the guitar, including some killer tips that I’m definitely going to start using myself!
In this lesson I’m going to show you a pretty crazy lick of mine, using the Mixolydian mode. Don’t worry if you aren’t confident with modes, there’s actually only one note difference between Mixolydian and Major, but it gives this lick a totally different flavour!
Although it’s fairly short, this lick packs in a ton of different techniques including alternate picking, legato picking, sweep picking and a really cool sounding string skip octave section right at the end.
