Hello again! In this tutorial I'll be showing you how to approach a Frank Gambale style sweep using 4th voicings (please reference my tutorial on 4th voicings). We'll be playing in the key of g major while focusing more on the relative A Dorian tonality. The rhythm and technique behind this sweep is pretty straight forward. It's a burst of four 16th tripl...

As I said earlier we are basing these shapes off of the 4th voicing shapes I taught in one of my previous tutorials. Just to recap a little bit, 4ths voicing are stacked 4th intervals as opposed to stacked thirds that we would see in triads or 7th chords. Although, in these examples, we are adding one extra note to create these patterns. The note we are ad...

I'd like to leave you with another way to approach using this type of sweep. In the final example we will view the notes as being related to the (A minor) pentatonic scale rather than thinking of them as 4th voicings. When we approach it this way we are able to open doors into new ways of thinking and ultimately get more out of what we have learned. The s...

In this tutorial, I'm going to show you the quickest way to make the licks you spend so much time mastering a part of your playing.  We're going to take three of my favorite shapes and move them diatonically to expose their various forms and qualities so that as we conitinue to learn more licks, they'll become easier to tackle. Listen carefully to the...

Here we're using a two-stringed phrase or shape (Major Scale 1-6). Let's see how the first shape changes as we move diatonically up the fretboard and down. You should start seeing the following sclaes: Mixolydian-Aeolian-Locrian-Ionian-Dorian-Phriygian-Lydian Doing this shows you how the shape works modally. It's best to extend this study throughout the 7 ...

Remember to practice these in different modes as well. You'll notice for triads there are only three types: Major, Minor, and Diminished. For all modes these just cycle in order starting from a different spot. Ex. Mixolydian - 5,6,7,1,2,3,4       Ionian - 1,2,3,4,5,6,7       Dorian - 2.3.4.5.6.7.1 ect..... For scales just ...

Hi there guys! In this tutorial I'm going to talk about something that I teach all the time to my college students. This is the idea of learning rhythmic variations. This is something that we might do already but are we doing it correctly? I know we all use some licks or patterns that use straight 16th notes or 16th not triplets or eight note triplets and...

Ok, so now we will explore easiest way to practice this concept. We'll set our metronome at 80bpm and we will use a G major 3 note per string scale with the root starting on the 3rd fret (G) of the low E string. We will then play the scale continuously up and down (without repeating any note 2 times in a row). It would be a good idea to first get used to ...
