Shred on the Edge pt.4
Hello to all of you, with these exercises I’ll be very glad to give you some ideas to improve your guitar technique and to feel more at ease when you play fast sequence. These examples start from simple ideas to arrive to more intricate parts… but as all of you knows the time to have a great technique as Greg Howe, Shawn Lane or Richie Kotzen is slow and with a lot of practice. I really hope you’ll enjoy this kind of course of shred guitar playing and for any questions please email me.
This first exercise is based on hammer on and tapping with two fingers. As the last lesson the tapping is played with second and third fingera and the hammer on should sound correctly because it is the first note of the each group.
This is an arpeggio with tapping. At this point I think your tapping technique improved so you can start to combine it with other techniques and it is an example.
This last one is based on a Aminor arpeggio with more notes played by tapping. As the second exercise for the tapping notes use the second and the third fingers because you have the pick in the one.
I hope you enjoyed these examples and see you next time!
Take a look to the Francesco Fareri – Official Site for monthly exercises, transcription (Greg Howe, George Bellas, Vitalij Kuprij, Jason Becker), audio files and above all for his first instrumental shred album called Suspension involved with progressive and neoclassical music.
