Disturbed: 'Stricken' Guitar Solo Lesson With Chris Zoupa
TUNING: C G C F A D This is a great solo. One of my favourites of all time. It's all relatively doable as long as you can deal with some pentatonic stuff and some melodic passages with a few slides and bends. If you watch my video you'll see me play the solo at the start and that I've divided the solo into 4 sections.
Sections 1 and 2 are relatively manageable. The 3rd and the 4th section have some more advanced techniques and speed so let's look at those more thoroughly. Section 3 Tips: This works with some pretty fast legato/pulloff techniques. I would suggest that you keep your pointer finger flat across the first 2 strings to reduce superfluous movement. Try to avoid doing alternate picking in this section. Play it all down stroked as the speed will all come from your left/fretting hand. Section 4 Tips: Keep it slow to start. This is a relatively pentatonic idea with a few extra notes. It's a bit complex with phrasing as there's bends legato and slides. Be patient and try learn it in chunks and join it all together later at is can be a bit overwhelming at first. Download tab here. Take care guys! Happy shredding!
