Extreme pt. 2

This is the second lesson of a new series of exercises.
It is made up of 6 lessons on:

  • Alternate Picking
  • Legato Playing
  • Arpeggios
  • Tapping
  • String Skipping
  • Combinations

Legato Playing is another technique that gives a lot of fluid effect to your playing. I use to play legato patterns together with other techniques, I mean, it is rare that I start to play a legato phrase from the start to the end of a solo but during some alternate or sweeping passages I use to play legato to give more fluent effect and to make the result more various. The importance of a good legato playing is to have a perfect left hand to play hammer on and pull off at the same volume if you play alternate, and the right hand should palm mute the strings you don’t play to have not background noise. In this example you can pick each first note of new string or you can play it with a hammer on to improve your first left hand finger.

Hope you’ll enjoy it and for any kind of questions or comments please
