Excerpt: Welcome to the "SEQUENCING" tutorial. Sequencing is a very important thing to understand in your playing. It is also REALLY useful. When we talk about sequencing we think about making a certain group of notes, put in a certain order, not necessarily the order they are in scale. A sequence can have 3, 4, 5, x number of notes so there are no limits on it. The...

Excerpt: This is a B-Major 1-octave scale. Now we will use a sequence of 6 notes to make a cool exercise and not play just a scale up and down. If you take a look at the notes/tabs each group of 6 notes is 1 sequence. Than we just move same sequence around. Notice that we have a descending sequence, and an ascending sequence - they ARE different. We said before that...

Excerpt: In this lesson, we'll use same sequence as in the previous lesson from this tutorial but we'll extend the exercise to 2 octaves and we'll move it to A-Major to change the sounding of it a bit. My advice is as usual: don't go for the speed straight away. First work on playing it nice and clean. Below are the notes/tabs and again you can see that the sequence ...

Excerpt: Now let's sequence a whole scale exercise on 2 strings. I used D-Major scale for this exercise and used 3-notes-per-string boxes to move the sequences up the fretboard. In order to achieve optimal speed you need to relax and breathe (may sound funny but I've witnessed a lot of players who forget to breath while shredding) and focus on what sequence is comin...

Excerpt: Looks like too many notes? Don't worry - nothing difficult around here! What you see here are 2 sequences: 1 goes 6 notes descending, and the other one goes 6 notes ascending. The only thing to think about are scale boxes. We have 7 scale boxes for a major scale because a major scale contains 7 notes. Each box can start with one of the notes from the scale. ...

Excerpt: Hey there! In this lesson we'll again work with 2 sequences: one goes 6 notes descending, than 2 notes ascending, and the other sequence is 6 notes ascending than 2 notes descending. Mixing those 2 sequences will sound like we're going all over the neck but in fact we're just using 2 octaves of G-Major scale. The exercise is 100% alternate picking so you ...
