Economy picking Dominant Arpeggio

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Tuesday, March 31, 2015, In : Economy Picking 

About
This almost calls for a celebration of some kind since I believe this is my first ever economy picking or speed picking lesson. Its a technique I have not explored that much so the amount of chops I have using this technique is very limited. But when I got the idea of repeating dominant arpeggios in a cascading way then using the economy picking technique made a lot of sense. The term speed picking is actually something I got from the master Frank Gambale but I have not heard that term a...

Neo Classical Sweep picking Arpeggios

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Tuesday, March 31, 2015, In : sweep picking 


About
Sweep Picking in the Neo Classical style. I just want to spend some extra time on the diminished shapes because they are some shapes I just came up with to be able to play some sixtuplet dimished shapes without only covering the E, B and G string. So what I do is I play two notes on the high E string and on the D string and only one note on the rest of the strings. Also I play only one note on the A string and to me it seems natural to use the little and index finger on the D string and ...

8 Finger Tapping scales in 3 octaves

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Tuesday, March 31, 2015, In : 8 Finger Tapping 

About
8 finger tapping guitar scales three octaves. I play one complete octave of the scale on each string but but because I start and end each string on the same note one octave higher that means I start the next string playing the next note in the scale. So in this case where I play the Ionian scale from the low E string that means that I start the next string which is the G string by playing the second note of the scale and finally when I go to the high E string I start the pattern by playi...

Economy picking combined with Sweep picking

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Monday, March 30, 2015, In : Economy Picking 

About
In this arpeggio I play a variety of economy picking and sweep picking. All the ascending part is economy picking and the descending part is mostly sweep picking but also some economy picking concepts are used

Economy Picking   
The economy picking technique has a few concepts that you pretty much cant derive from without using a new technique

1. Even number of notes to change direction

2. Odd number of notes to stay in the same direction

3. The picking technique directs the fretting hand

Chord inversions for guitar

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Monday, March 30, 2015, In : music theory 


About
The most obvious reasons that most guitar players always play the same old barre chords are probably because the guitar is so un easy to get a good overview of, so pretty much all we learn on the guitar is made up of patterns, scales and chords are all made up of those to make it easier to get the job done, but especially regarding chords that can  really be a hindrance because we never get the full advancement of all the chords, voicings and inversions that are available to us if we nev...

Economy picking Diminished Arpeggios

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Sunday, March 29, 2015, In : Economy Picking 

About
This arpeggio calls for a specific fingering to make it work which is also typical for economy picking. Its as the title says diminished and I will shoe you a cool way to work it into a traditional Major scale

Technique
As you can see in the picking part of the video I play a picking stroke on each and every note, so no pull off´s or hammer on´s on the spots where I play more than one note which is typical for Sweep Picking. But in Economy or Speed Picking you pick every note and arrange...

About
This is the original solo from Scarified from the second Racer x album called Second Heat and in my opinion this is certainly the strongest of the Racer x albums, well the first one also kicks ass. But this is back in the days where Paul Gilbert really kicked ass, in those days you could really hear in he's playing that he was practicing a lot, there was so much "freshness" in he's playing and it really shows in the original solo in Scarified, so if you have not yet checked out the old ...

So first thing in the morning I stretch my fingers a little bit and then start slowly with the first lesson.

The 5 critical Steps to fast Alternate picking

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Friday, March 27, 2015, In : Alternate Picking 


About
Alternate picking can be such a frustrating technique because you develop the speed in another way than with many other techniques, in Alternate picking we develop the speed in quantum leaps instead of gradually getting faster. So a lot of people give up because they don't see the improvement they expect. But check out these five steps in this video and adjust any possible "wrong" way that has not taken you to the result you are after

Altering the sound of the Major 7 Arpeggio

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Thursday, March 26, 2015, In : sweep picking 

About
This arpeggio is really amazing sounding in my opinion, and its very refreshing to use these Major seven arpeggios if you are normally using the traditional triad arpeggios. Theres absolutely nothing wrong with triads, I use them all the time, but its a question about what sound you're after, if you want Neo Classical Metal or Shred guitar then the triad arpeggios are perfect, I might also add a Dominant seven arpeggio to a Neo Classical Metal piece of music though, but thats pretty much...

Extreme Sweep picking Tapping plus slides

About
Here is a very sweet sounding lick in E minor using all three of the minor inversion of the minor triads using a variety of five and six strings. Notice the first inversion might be a little uncommon in the fingering, if thats the case for you, play the root note E as the first note on the A string using the index finger hammering on to the little finger instead. This lick also takes up quite a bit of the fretboard so make sure you are in a key where there's enough space on the fret boar...

Extreme Legato and Improvisation

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Tuesday, March 24, 2015, In : Legato Guitar Lessons 


About
This lick is really extreme to the max because it makes use of the Pentatonic scale which has some quite large stepsand played with four notes per string and string skipping. I actually think it makes it a little easier to play little sequences between two patterns and it can also help you to do repetitions on each pattern. I also strongly suggest that you warm up your hand for stuff like this to make sure the quality of the notes is good because if you dont then you might experience tha...

The reason it takes a lot of effort to make it work is partly because you are trying to pull it off in such small space so not only is it the part...

About
This lick is composed from the B minor Blues scale but played all legato style and three notes per string style. I actually see the lick from the first position of the Blues scale which is B minor but I connect it with the B natural minor which shares notes with D major which is the key of the song so this way I can easily make my way to the lick I actually create the melodic side of the soloing from the B natural minor. The other thing which is really cool in this system is to combining...

This cool little and very typical neo classical shred guitar sounding phrase introduces a dominant arpeggio that might be new to you. It´s a little bit non typical in the way that I add extra notes on the way while ascending and descending and in this case it is on the D and on the G string instead of only on the two E strings. The idea of connecting arpeggios together with scale patterns is vey typical for the Neo Classical Metal genre. It especially reminds me of Symphony x Damnation...
