This last example shows how to incorporate these shapes into a more straight-forward shredding context. Like the first lick, it utilizes a few substitutions and some very tricky string skips, so it is bound to get your alternate picking up to shape. Think Steve Morse with this one!
Once you've gotten a solid grasp on this tutorial, it'll then be your turn to create your own chords/fingerings/licks/chord melodies. I’m sure this approach will get you out of a rut!
