Super 4 Notes Per String Legato

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Sunday, November 13, 2016 In : legato 


How To Play
This lick after the initial time it takes to get used to the four notes per string concept is relatively simple to play and you can improvise all you want with the number of times you repeat each four notes per string pattern and make it a little more your own idea.
But what needs drilling in this one is the final pattern on the hihg E string as I also touch upon in the video, that final high E can take some time to avoid the muting of that note, which is what happened a lot for ...

In the first Inversiosn make sure you use the ring finger to bar over the low E string and A sting(this is of course the 7 string version of the piece) this makes it possible to use the long finger on the D string and finally the Index and

About
Hi there here is the third Contemporary Shred Guitar lesson and this time its exclusively tapping, its quite advanced Tapping and requires mastery of the index finger and little finger or the long finger and little finger on the Tapping hand.

Contemporary Shred Guitar Lesson 2

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Saturday, April 23, 2016 In : contemporary shred guitar 


About

Hey here is the second of the Contemporary Shred Guitar Lessons, this one is even more Contemporary and this time theres no Neo Classical Shred Guitar influences. Its an E Major 7 Arpeggio played in three inversions, this tachnique requires some more finesse than the triads because of all the added Hammer on's and Pull off's along the way. Especially the second inversion requires a sleight of hand and no heavy-handedness.

Improvisation
Use the lesson or lick in its intirety from the firs...
