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.
Welcome to my “Elysium” lesson, a great example of putting harmony and melody together. This is original composition from a great band Stratovarius which is arranged originally by Matias Kupianinen, new guitarist of the band.
An intermediate and advanced example of how to create a cascading and melodic sequence of arpeggios tied together to compliment a chord progression. This lesson will also cover using diminished scale arpeggios to melodically enhance chromatic chord changes. These examples are heavily inspired by Jeff Loomis and Paul Gilbert.
