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...

Chopin Etude Alternate picking lesson

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Sunday, June 21, 2015, In : Alternate Picking 


About

The first thing that I need to mention here is that once you have played through the lesson the first time and if you have played Alternate picking through the whole piece you will start over with the opposite type picking stroke. This means that if you started with a down stroke you will play the second time round with an up stroke. This certainly created a few challenges for me, but thats great, this means that you will improve you Alternate picking technique both starting with and up...

Harmonic minor Alternate picking speed

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


About
In a way this is just a simple Alternate picking lesson, but again there's so much to be able to be fast and clean in the Alternate picking technique. But once you get the fundamentals down in the technique you are able to play fast in everything that is build from the scales with the three notes per string concept, that's also the reason that it looks so easy for the players who really master the Alternate picking technique and who has a strong basis in the three notes per string concep...

Alternate picking speed Formula

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


About
So as the video explains, I get some great benefits from just practising fifteen minutes every morning. So first thing in the morning I stretch my fingers a little bit and then start slowly with the first lesson. As I also state in the video it's not really the material that does the trick but more the idea of getting really deep into the technique every morning and I don't even try to play any of the pieces I practice fast, or try to reach my max. Whats important in this idea is to get...

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

Step 1. Practice at a pace where you have total cont...

Alternate picking study 12

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Saturday, March 21, 2015, In : Alternate Picking 


About
Hi there here is cool little alternate picking run that is very reminiscent of something Paul Gilbert used to do in the eighties and probably still does, thereĀ“s no doubt that the three notes per string alternate picking ideas from the Classic Intense Rock really inspired me and a lot of other guitar players out there and created the basics of playing fast alternate picking. The idea of starting an alternate picking run from the low E string and continuing it through the scale patterns ...

Alternate Picking Basics part 2

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Friday, March 20, 2015, In : Alternate Picking 


About
Hey there, I made this video because I got some feedback regarding the previous video touching on the subject of the right hand picking method. So I realized that the previous video was not thorough enough and its funny that whenever I go into detail on a subject that seems quite simple to the untrained eye "such as my own" then I suddenly conceive that there is much more to the case that I first thought. So in this video I will go more into detail on the ways to hold the pick. For me pe...

Alternate Picking Lesson 7

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Friday, March 20, 2015, In : Alternate Picking 


About
This alternate picking idea is pretty cool in the way it makes use of re using a lot of notes and this way you in a little area play a lot of notes but it still sounds like a lot is happening so to say. the same concept is used in three spots with the little turnaround as I like to call it where the first is pivoting on the A string. The pattern is also being executed in the third position of the Major scale and the key is C minor which is sharing the same notes as the E flat Major scale...

I did this video a while ago with the intention of starting a site with only beginner guitar stuff. I saw the video through and I think the video has some important knowledge if you want to learn how to play guitar shred guitar and lead guitar style of course. I go through all the pitfalls I believe there can appear when you want to play fast alternate picking such as where to establish your control of the right arm and hand. The first point of control of the movement actually starts in ...
