Dorian Extreme Tapping Omit Seven

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Thursday, September 27, 2018, In : extreme tapping 


About
So this technique is actually the same we make us of as the Major scale Extreme Tapping lick we did last time, we just change the major third into a minor third and this way get the Dorian scale except for the seventh note of the scale but other than that its the same fingering I make use of and the same technique

Technique
This technique is something I invented because I wanted to use as many fingers as possible for tapping but still keeping the pick between my index finger and thumb. Th...

Extreme Tapping Major Scale

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Friday, September 21, 2018, In : extreme tapping 


About
So this lick or scale is one of my ultimate trademark licks that really got my playing going and it can for you too. Once you get a hold of this baby you will be able to shred like a maniac for sure

Theory
This is sort of a Ionian scale but it can also work as a dominant scale since there is no seventh in it, so its a complete major scale with no seventh and therefore you can use it either as a Ionian scale also called the major scale or you could use it as a dominant step scale, or a mix...

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...

Blues Shred Arpeggios

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Wednesday, June 10, 2015, In : blues shred 


About
It's obviously not often that you would use sweep picking Arpeggios in a standard Blues, but you can absolutely get the sweet benefits of the Blues sound in almost everything else, so here are a standard Blues Vamp using four note Dominant arpeggios with added the minor thirds or raised ninths if you will into the Major seven Arpeggios which is a typical "trick" that are one of the "building stones" of creating the Blues sound. As I also state in the video its extremely important that ...

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...

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...

Extreme Sweep picking Tapping plus slides

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Thursday, March 26, 2015, In : Sweep Picking Tapping 


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...

Harmonic minor Sweep picking Tapping advanced

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Monday, March 23, 2015, In : Sweep Picking Tapping 


About
This lick is really cool and I have used it quite a lot on my recordings like in Infinity Overture: The Infinite Overture pt.1 and my solo album Sthenic. Its a combination of a minor sweep picking triad and a lot of notes added from the Harmonic minor scale with tapping with three fingers on the right hand 

Technique
One element that to some degree can make a very advanced lick like this seem a little easier is the hammer on´s I do as a help to make the shift between the sweep picking tec...

Extreme Guitar

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Friday, March 20, 2015, In : stunt guitar 


About
I think we can all agree that this extreme guitar lesson is totally and completely over the top. It features a variety of techniques such as Sweep Picking, Legato, tappin and 8 finger tapping and three and four notes per string patterns. I guess you can also see and here that its highly improvised and that is the reason that I did not slow it down. I basically play a E minor sweep picking pattern and the first time I do it I add a four notes per string on the high E string played legato ...

Dominant arpeggio and scale tapping

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Wednesday, March 11, 2015, In : how to improvise 


About
About
Here in this example you will get first of all a really cool way to play a four note arpeggio, it's a Dominant arpeggio using quite a bit of Legato in between this Sweep picking Arpeggio. But you will also learn how to use Tapping to play a scale in a really cool way that does not take up a lot of the freeboard which is often the case when Tapping a three notes per string scale with additional Tapping. In this idea you will usie two fingers to tap, I use the long and ring finger mos...

Sweep Picking Exotic Arpeggio 3

This arpeggio is composed from the first position of the Melodic minor and gets that cool kind of whole tone scale sound between the fourth the fifth, natural sixth and raised seventh. Again you have to work on using three fingers from the picking hand for tapping. Good luck
