After getting a handle on fast licks, the next problem students have is playing the idea in time. This means that although a student can kind of get the notes of a fast lick happening, they can't yet get it to sound right or make sense rhythmically.
Again, remember, it is important to realize that playing fast, "shredding", should not be merely a flailing, spastic, haphazard jumble of notes or "stuff" you play as fast as you can. It should be a musical idea; just played faster than usual.
So we are going to learn some new fast licks, but we are also going to aim at playing them in time, at the right time, over a chord progression in a major key. The licks in this tutorial are based on my own major key shredding style. Among the techniques covered are: major scale use, mixolydian mode use, fast scalar sequence passages, fast major arpeggios, pedal point.
This tutorial assumes you have the skills presented in these earlier tutorials on speed building technique and visualizing the scale patterns being used. If you haven't worked through them yet, I strongly encourage you to do so. If you have successfully worked through them, then let's shred!
This tutorial is one in a series on building and using speed (very fast playing).
There are also these tutorials on visualizing and playing these patterns all over the fretboard.
I find it quite easy (so far!) to navigate, and found the "where do I start" to be very helpful! I'm getting there!!
I LOVE the forum, too. I've never been one to use forums, but the GT forum is full of great people and helpful information at ALL levels! Congrats on a WONDERFUL site!!Good job!
