Blues Shred Techniques

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Friday, January 13, 2017, In : blues shred 


Techniques
This one is pretty cool and makes use of some unorthodox ways of playing sweep picking arpeggios, in this case im playing a D dominant arpeggio, but I play through some new patterns and add Tapping to it. What makes this easyer to utilize is to make sure of a very specific fingering, because you can actually make it pretty much impossible for yourselves if you dont create a specific fingering for your self that you use each and every time, you can of course use mine as I show in th...

Blues Shred Sweep Picking Tapping

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Tuesday, January 3, 2017, In : blues shred 


Theory
So this is obviously a blues lick and by the way sorry for the late blog text. Its such a cool lick, I myself have started to work it into my improvisation where it ultimately belongs. The way to start working it into your playing is to pay attention to when you reach the second mode of the Major scale, or if you think of it as being in the fifth position from the A string of course which is of course theoretically more correct since thats the Mixolydian step which is Major with the low...

As I also state in the video its extremely important that ...

Blues Legato lick 2

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


About 
Here is the second contribution to the blues scale shred guitar improvisation. This one is in my opinion a little challenging in doing ascending hammer on´s and pull off´s and especially the part where you go from the high E string skip the B string and enter the G string with a continuity of chromatic notes started off with the ringfinger. 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...

Blues Shred Improvisation

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Monday, March 23, 2015, In : how to improvise 

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...
