Traversing the Pentatonic Scale - String-Skipping

Chris Feener 256 lessons

A technique made very popular by guys like Paul Gilbert in the 80's, String-Skipping is a great way to navigate the fretboard in a more sporatic way; to cover more ground. To build on some of the concepts and techniques tackled in the previous demonstrations, let's incorporate string-skipping across some of these (now) familiar patterns. Remember to utilize string muting where possible both with the fretting and picking hands - String-skipping creates a whole host of new challenges as far as preventing string noise. So take your time and focus on where the squeeks and squacks are coming from. Clarity is everything.
