Hi everyone! This is my first free lesson. In this lesson I'm going to show you a Dorian Fusion Lick based around the A Dorian scale using mixed legato and hybrid picking technique. I hope you'll enjoy it.
This lesson will help you to spice your approach of one of the most important point in jazz and fusion playing, the II V I. 5 licks are shown and explained using modern ideas of thinking and playing. Interesting points of harmony like diatonic substitution are tackled.
This Lesson contains a wide range of techniques such as hybrid picking, advanced tapping, alternate and economy picking as well as the usual bluesy licks all crammed into a short rock solo. Its catchy, melodic and hopefully it will spark some ideas. Thanks for checking it out!
'Skippy' is a short original piece that covers the technique most notably fashioned by Paul Gilbert; string skipping. Highlighting the major, minor and diminished shapes whilst incorporating hybrid picking to provide an easier route to achieving high speed and fluency.
"Goodbye" covers a 20 bar solo over a punk/rock progression. The first aim of demonstration is some simple, yet effective pentatonic ideas and extra note choice. Another highlight is how to build your solo through "gears", building up to the fast flashy stuff, which is essential for a coherent & interesting structure
