About that extreme String skipping lick, If you use Oscilated Picking (If thats the right word, using Outside and Inside strokes to make it Economical) The fastest I can get it is 8th notes at around 200BPM Easy so 7 Notes per second. (Or pushing it, I don't have a metronome going, I think I can do it with 8th notes at 240BPM, so 8NPS.)

Deals with alt, inside, and outside picking, string skipping, sweeping, and whole tone shapes.

(attached).



That look great to practice. Thanks!

Sorry if it's a bit short, I haven't had much time lately lol. I'm going to make more though.
And of course, it's a repetitive pattern so play it once, move it up a half step, play it again, repeat.
EDIT: Just added a little more of the whole tone stuff to it in the post above.

I`d suggest the addition of Alan Holdsworth`s House of Mirrors to the chord workout section , that song will help your stretching and your overall independence alot.
#132
Also would recommend anything by Joe Pass , the man was a demon with the use of chords.

I want to recommend Evolutionary Sleeper by Cynic for alternate picking.

Textures is good as well. It's a great workout for your left hand. Gets all your fingers involved and doesn't afraid of anything.
The guy's a beast, but he uses 8s. So he's shit.

I know the song but haven't checked out any tabs for it yet. I'll have to check it out. Thanks for the recommendation. I'm always looking to improve my technique.

Sorry, but all of these songs are quite hard. I've been working on 'Fives - Guthrie Govan' and 'Technicall Difficulties - Paul Gilbert', which are both on the very top (easiest) of the list and I haven't gotten either of them up to speed (I'm not exactly a beginner either).

Aren't there any slightly easier songs that someone like me could master? Thanks


no where does it say that the top is the easiest
#141
It even says specifically that they aren't in any order...

Is there any reason why Beat It - Michael Jackson isn't in tapping? Eddie Van Halen plays the solo and it also works on playing notes in irregular groups.

Hi, in the last few days I've made 4 guitar video exercises for different techniques - for tapping, legato playing, hybrid picking and sweep picking.

All the guitar exercises come with downloadable TABs, and some of them contains the mp3s as well (fast and slow versions too).


A quick legato run with chromatic passages:

Feel free to ask questions or post comments, I'll be glad to give advice.

Great stuff (although very promoty it's perfect for the thread ).

Just a little too much delay and reverb on the tone for my tastes, tbh, and the licks are a bit simple. But that's just me.
#146
Is practicing very slowly the way to go ???

example : i downloaded Eric johnson - cliff of dover tabs with Guitar pro ... Should i lower the tempo to like 35 BPM instead of the regular bpm and pick each note really slowly correctly and gradually improve the speed when i get familiar with the finger position ???


anyone practice that way .????.. by lowering the bpm in guitar pro .. and play the riff very slowly and graduate increase the speed .

i cant really afford guitar lesson right now .. im not bad i can play a couple of song .. but im not good at lead and i wanna start . i was playing almost rythm only .
Bedroom rock star :

- Gibson Les paul Standard 2001 Honeyburst .
- Agile 3200 Slim

I don't recall the last time I posted, but a useful topic might by rhythm, as in songs that test your ability to group 5ths, 7ths, syncopation, etc....=)

Man, I downloaded the .zip file, and I nearly came. It was so amazing. I think I love you, dude!

There is no DOWNPICKING songs...

I'll begin. Master of Puppets.

most Metallica and Metalcore.

I would suggest adding songs by Hella for the tapping section.


the dude from hella doesnt follow anything too rigid and i think thats where these exercises take their influence. yarrrrrimean
#156
So I've only been playing for about 2 years and I haven't really bothered to learn anything really hard, just some chord songs and some indie-rock, nothing that has a lot of hard stuff in it. So I downloaded all of those "Thousands of exercises" thing in the beginning of the thread, so I clicked on a few of them and decided to give them a listen but a lot of them seem too fast/advanced for me. Where should I start?
#158
theres a song called Vultures by a melodic idk kinda band called FATE.. they are kinda a mix btw blasting deathcore-ish and sweet sounding melodic death
but in that song there is an amazing melodic harmonized (slow and hypnotic)
sweep section.. I WOULD KILL for someone to make a powertab of that song!!!
you would be my hero
