Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Friday, December 14, 2018, In : Guitar Tapping 

I think I have solved the noise problem on my videos so from the next video(I think you will get on monday) should be noise free, woohooo ! this video has some noise im sorry, but the material kicks butt and remember to download the chart under the video on youtube if you need it.

The Major Pentatonic is quite boring but you can also use it as a second pattern for the minor Pentatonic, aaand many other things, but thats a video for the future, for now you can use this awesome lick as a second ...

How to play really fast Blues chops

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Thursday, December 13, 2018, In : blues shred 

Playing the Blues scale extremely fast up and down the neckis no easy task, believe me I have tried, so instead og doing it the traditional way using alternate picking with a variety of two and three notes per string I present to you a really killer way using three notes per string patterns in the fretting hand and tapping with two fingers with the other hand, be sure to download the chart under the video on youtube

Blues Shred Techniques

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

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 

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...

Blues Shred Arpeggios

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

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 ...

Blues Legato lick 2

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

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 

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...
