Shred Academy - Free Guitar Lesson by Fredrik Pihl
all you six (or seven) string benders out there! Today’s
keyword is muting….
was in the process of writing a new song and I came up with a
nice tapping arpeggio sequence. I thought it would turn out as
a good lesson for Shred Academy so I made a video lesson out of
it. This is a typical fancy guitar hero lick, but it’s also
quite musical. You can play it fast or slow, it sounds quite nice
main structure of this lick is string skipping, tapping and some
legato. No guitar pick is used what so ever. To make it more rythmically
interesting I decided to make the lick based on quintuplets. For
those of you who have seen my previous lessons, you might get
the impression that I like odd rythm groupings….. well you’re
hardest thing about this exercise is the muting part. You really
have to mute all the strings that you are not playing. Start really,
really slow and make sure that you get it absolutely clean before
speeding up. I have seen some players that use some kind of muting
device at the beginning of the guitar neck (such as socks, pony
tail holders etc), but I really think you should try to live without
not very cool when a friend asks you to play the lick and you
say: ”Sure, let me just get a sock and tie around the neck
of my guitar”.
arpeggios is based on three different chords, that I use in the
song. Those are Gadd9, Cadd9 and D/A. Try to come up with your
own variations and have fun with them.
