Neo classical shred guitar lesson 3

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Saturday, April 25, 2015, In : Neo Classical Shred Guitar 


About
This is the third contribution to the Neo Classical Shred guitar lessons or Neo Classical Metal lessons that I have been creating in this period and it is the full pice so there's a lot of Tablature in this one. This one is in a way a little more basic because I only use Sweep picking triads and Alternate picking in six tuplets. There's a lot going on in the backing track so I hope you can still hear whats important, the guitar. There are a few points that does not start on a downbeat w...

Neo Classical Shred Guitar Sweep picking 8 finger tapping

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Friday, April 17, 2015, In : Neo Classical Shred Guitar 


About
Hello again, here are yet another Neo Classical Shred Guitar lesson that are a lot of fun both to listen to and to play. I have again chosen to focus on the combination of Sweep picking and 8 finger tapping as well as the 8 finger tapping alone. So I believe that the sliding of the pick up the index finger using the thump is essential to be able to do this technique since its crucial to have access to all four fingers on both hands if you want to play those sweet 8 finger tapping patter...

As I also talk about in the video, playing 8 finger tapping and also the combination os Sweep picking and 8 finger tapping you really need to master the Dampening game bless you want...

Hey hey ! here is the first new blog post since my old website was hacked and destroyed. As you may know this is the new url where things are going down from now on. I wanted to congratulate that all the old blog posts are up and running again and now with this latest addition to the blog posts you'll get a very short and sweet lick addressing both Sweep picking tapping and my crazy Cross hand technique. Obviously this is not something that is easy to use in improvising and therefore I ...

Exotic scales Enigmatic scale Legato lesson

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Thursday, April 2, 2015, In : exotic scales 


About
This lick is composed from the really weird scale called The Enigmatic scale, and the name actually makes a lot of sense because just hearing the scale in itself gives no real clue as to what the root is. But the lick works perfectly as a lick you throw into something that's very harmonic which then will really throw you off for a second because it sounds so out there. Other than that the video is also made in the period where I produced the Mega program about mastering the Legato techni...

Extreme Tapping Arpeggios combined with Guitar Scales

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Thursday, April 2, 2015, In : extreme tapping 


About
This lick is one of my trademarks and what I normally call Extreme Tapping. Its a killer pattern that sounds really extreme once you got the technique down. One of the first things regarding this technique that most people find a little weird is something like starting a lick out with a hammer on which can feel a little awkward in the beginning. The nex thing is to make the string skipping lose the possible breaks between the notes and obviously also the string noise that can happen when...

Sweep picking advanced Tapping

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Wednesday, April 1, 2015, In : Sweep Picking Tapping 


About
Rightyho !! here is once again one of those crazy ass sweep picking triad arpeggios combined with tapping. And in this one I obviously do the sweep picking with the thumb and index finger which then gives me the possibility to tap with the long finger, ring finger and little finger. I want to tell you that it is a good attitude to have towards anything you want to learn that you can easily reach the goal that you have set for yourself but its also important to know that - that being said...

Alternate picking improvisation

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Wednesday, April 1, 2015, In : how to improvise 


About
This video is a little different than the chops I have posted and the only reason I created the tablature for it is only so you can see exactly what I did. I also need to say that this is of course not a lick that is extremely interesting but the system to create it is extremely useful and interesting. So now that you have seen what I do I really encourage you to start using the system yourself and create som really cool runs and licks that fits well into the scale patterns because it th...
