Shred on the Edge pt.5
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 an example of how to combine an arpeggio with more figures and starting from different strings with tapping notes.
This second is a concentrate of technique. The first sequence is a legato with tapping and then an arpeggio with tapping. The last notes written as X are muted and it creates a cool effect of muting before end with a cool vibrato.
This one is a riff on Aminor with muted notes that finish with an arpeggio
and two fingers tapping. Play it 2 or 3 times and it will sounds really cool.
I hope all is clear… and for any kind of questions don’t hesitate and
email me please!
