Pick-Stroke Uniformity - Introduction

Hey everyone! This month we're taking a close look at our pick-stroke. Maintaining a uniformity with regards to pick-stroke dynamics (regardless of which direction our pick strokes each string) will open many windows of opportunity to mix scalar and arpeggio sequences seemlessly. Each exercises consists of "linear" alternate picked sequences, as well as eco...

Pick-Stroke Uniformity - Lick 2

Lick 2 consists of two bars of contrasting technique - the first, we're ascending through a fairly common three-note-per string passage with alternate, before descending through an E minor arpeggio sequence in bar two. Again, the focus of these exercises are to pick every note with a consistent pick attack.

Pick-Stroke Uniformity - Lick 3

Lick 3 is a little more "mixed up" as far as pick directions are concerned. Much like lick 1, we begin with alternate picking but are soon met with an ascending Dmaj7 arpeggio from the A to G strings. The most effective method of practicing this lick, is to play through the first measure up to the first time we pick the 14th fret of the G string. Not biting ...

Finally, lick 4 kinda mixes things up. This exercise begins with an up-stroke to allow for our economy to "reset" before hitting the alternate picked measure in bar 2 with a down stroke. Practice bar 1, first, to a metronome, before moving forward. While bar 2 features a fairly standard alternate picked descending lick, we still want to set it up properly so...

Welcome again to another tutorial! This time around we'll be discussing one of the most important elements of music, rhythm. More specifically, syncopation. As a beginning to intermediate guitarist, one of the most difficult things to grasp onto is the concept of syncopation. What some players don’t realize is that syncopation is extremely important ...

In this first exercise we'll be using an E7 shell voicing but really any chord will do. I've set my metronome to 80bpm and like I stated in the last video, I start on the down beat and move the 16th note over 1 beat every measure. This gives me accents on "off" beats. The following may help: 1(e&a) 2(e&a) 3(e&a) 4(e&a) (1)E(&...

The technique used in the previous videos can also be applied to soloing ideas. In this section, we'll take a simple 8 note scale shape (E mixolydian) and we'll play its using a descending 4 note sequence that is common in many styles. The same thing applies in this exercise. We'll start on the downbeat (the 1) the first time, then we'll start on the "E", t...

Like I said in the previous video, this might be a little more difficult so please play at a slower tempo if needed. A good starting point would be 60bpm if 80 is uncomfortable. Also pay close attention to the tab. The descending sequence is the same pattern each time, starting and ending on the same notes as well as the exact same notes within. The only t...
