This is the lesson covering my song called An Old Modern Time from my solo album Let It Out, released in 2006. It's a cool Neoclassic kind a piece with lot of alternate picking, string skipping, sweeping, few legato licks etc.
Trilogy Suite is one of Malmsteen’s most popular compositions. The track is from a 1986 album titled Trilogy and at the time it was regarded as one of the most demanding pieces written for guitar, among the rest of Malmsteen’s work.
This song was my entry for Guitar Idol III. It involves some of my favourite rock techniques and licks, and it will improve your alternate picking, tapping, and string skipping, as well as develop stamina in your right hand, thanks to the prolonged wide stretches.
In this classical tapping etude lesson we will study string skipping tapping arpeggios. We will use the large jumps between the strings and improve stretching our fingers on the left hand. You will learn 16 different ways to play arpeggios on the different types of chords.
In this lesson we are going to develop what we learned in the “Root Shapes & Major Chords” lesson. Youʼll see here that pentatonics, arpeggios and scales are all based around those Root Shapes, which makes it easy to understand and visualize the fretboard.
