Arpeggio Study Part 1

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Friday, November 17, 2017 In : music theory 


What is Arpeggios?

Let me explain this to you in a way that I think will uncover what somethimes can seem a bit of a mystery. Imagins the dawn of time some people agreed og a group of notes, in this case the Major scale, and then imagine a monestry a group of munks are singing and one of them notices that when you skip every other note in that scale and ask three munks to sing the first, thir and fifth note of that scale it sounds awesome, then take those three notes and sing the notes one a...

Chopin Etude No. 12 op. 25 Shred Guitar

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Sunday, June 18, 2017 In : Neo Classical Shred Guitar 


About
This lesson is taken from Chopin's 12 Etudes Opus 25 not to be mistaken from Opus 10. Its just parts of it but still very enjoyable. Regarding the technique, as I also explain in the video I use the Sweep picking technique with the pick using my thumb and index finger, this enables me to use my long finger and little finger to use the Taping technique and play the final notes of the Arpeggios. Regarding the Diminished sevent Arpeggios I use the Hammer on and Pull off Technique combined w...

About these Arpeggios

This piece comes from my new album Concerto, its the third track on the album and is called Monuments, this partucular thing is the intro Arpeggios and represents a lot of different interresting Arpeggios mainly using Sweep picking. We both getu regular triad Arpeggios but also four note Dominant Arpeggios in different inversions, Major seven and diminished sevens plus the really cool Major seven raised fifth from the third step of the Harmonic minor scale

Neo Classical 8 Finger Tapping

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Tuesday, January 17, 2017 In : Neo Classical Shred Guitar 


Technique
If you have followed my 8 finger Tapping lessons before, or my Sweep Picking 8 Finger Tapping lessons to be more precise you will know that to go from the Sweep picking technique to the 8 finger tapping technique I slide the pick up the index finger with my thumb. This is key to be able to combine those two techniques in the same lick. The most tough and the part you will probably have to drill again and again is the part where you descend the 8 finger tapping scale from the B stri...

Blues Shred Techniques

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Friday, January 13, 2017 In : blues shred 


Techniques
This one is pretty cool and makes use of some unorthodox ways of playing sweep picking arpeggios, in this case im playing a D dominant arpeggio, but I play through some new patterns and add Tapping to it. What makes this easyer to utilize is to make sure of a very specific fingering, because you can actually make it pretty much impossible for yourselves if you dont create a specific fingering for your self that you use each and every time, you can of course use mine as I show in th...

Easy Scale Licks Implementation

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Saturday, January 7, 2017 In : Alternate Picking 


Implementation
Obviously the idea of this video and blog is not the lick in it self but more a concept to use when you are soloing in the scales. And let me just apologize for the old url on the video, the video is not completely new but I find the info and idea very relevant and its some time ago I posted some Alternate Picking lessons. The idea is to take a basic concept or a pattern you want to play within the scale pattern and repeat that in the next or previous scale pattern, this is an e...

Blues Shred Sweep Picking Tapping

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Tuesday, January 3, 2017 In : blues shred 


Theory
So this is obviously a blues lick and by the way sorry for the late blog text. Its such a cool lick, I myself have started to work it into my improvisation where it ultimately belongs. The way to start working it into your playing is to pay attention to when you reach the second mode of the Major scale, or if you think of it as being in the fifth position from the A string of course which is of course theoretically more correct since thats the Mixolydian step which is Major with the low...

Advanced Sweep Picking Tapping

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Wednesday, December 21, 2016 In : Sweep Picking Tapping 


About Scales
This lesson is all about four note Arpeggios and in this case the A Major seven and the E Dominant seven, as I explain in the video you can easily incorporate it into the A major scale or of course the Major scale in general, start it from the first step of the Major scale, regarding the technical stuff

Technique
As you can see I combine Tapping using two fingers and in this example I use the long finger and the Little finger, this helps me easily go into the Sweep picking techniqu...

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Friday, December 9, 2016 In : Neo Classical Shred Guitar

It features myself on Guitars, bass and Orchestrations, Jakob Vand on Drums and John West on vocals and Fabio Lione as well on vocals.

Techniques
A few of the notable techniques worth paying some extra attention to is the bendin lick on the G string, here you nee...
