String Action

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Thursday, November 22, 2018, In : adjust the guitar 

Is there more than one way to set the string action ? There suuuure is, personally I like my strings what I would like to call a middle thing between far away and close.

What I mean with this is that I like to set my strings so they kind of "breathe" or they dont get in touch with the frets at all and I dont mean where they create string buzz but just where they sort of create a snapping sound, you will know what I talk about if you hear it for sure.

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 ...

I find that if im learning stuff that is making use of patterns like scales and arpeggios I know then I le...

String skipping Alternate picking

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Friday, March 6, 2015, In : string skipping 

Hey guys and dolls ! here is another shred guitar lesson, this one is string skipping and as I also explain in the video the obvious inspiration is of course Paul Gilbert but also that I prefer playing alternate picking all the way through instead of combining alternate picking with hammer on and pull off as Paul Gilbert does. There´s no doubt that this way of using alternate picking all the way is way more challenging since you have to be really quick with the picking hand to avoid spa...
