How to play major pentatonic really.... really fast

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 ...

Arpeggio Study Part 3

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Sunday, December 3, 2017, In : music theory 

Stacking the Arpeggios to the max

Remember to watch the two previous instalments of Arpeggio study before watching this to get the deepest possible insights on the theory of Arpeggios unless you are already up to date on the Triads and the theory of Inversions. 

The Major seven

So this time we are going to continue from where we left off with the Triads, the theory you may know by now is that we take every other note in the scale that we work with, and in the example I'm using I work in the C M...

Contemporary Shred Guitar Lesson 2

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


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.

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

Chord inversions for guitar

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Monday, March 30, 2015, In : music theory 

The most obvious reasons that most guitar players always play the same old barre chords are probably because the guitar is so un easy to get a good overview of, so pretty much all we learn on the guitar is made up of patterns, scales and chords are all made up of those to make it easier to get the job done, but especially regarding chords that can  really be a hindrance because we never get the full advancement of all the chords, voicings and inversions that are available to us if we nev...

Altering the sound of the Major 7 Arpeggio

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Thursday, March 26, 2015, In : sweep picking 

This arpeggio is really amazing sounding in my opinion, and its very refreshing to use these Major seven arpeggios if you are normally using the traditional triad arpeggios. Theres absolutely nothing wrong with triads, I use them all the time, but its a question about what sound you're after, if you want Neo Classical Metal or Shred guitar then the triad arpeggios are perfect, I might also add a Dominant seven arpeggio to a Neo Classical Metal piece of music though, but thats pretty much...

Major 7 Sweep picking Arpeggio extended version

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Sunday, March 22, 2015, In : sweep picking 

This sweep picking arpeggio is one that I would normally play on a sevenstring guitar but someone(Thank you !!:)) came up with the idea of playing it on a six string and so I was just taking the same notes as I was playing on the seven string guitar and came up with a way to play it on a six string. The pattern did definetively not become easier but actually quite the contrary "But we do love to practice stuff we cant play... right?"

This technique is one that I in the beginning...
