Here's the first in a mini series of free lessons in which I'm aiming to demonstrate how you can add some extra colour to your solos by adding just one note to the pentatonic scale. This lesson contains four licks in Cm, with added "blue note"!
This package is aimed at intermediate level players who want to expand their improvisational vocabulary. The Dorian mode is explained in detail in the included lesson write-up, alongside the 6 great licks featured in the main video.
We will be seeing how to play as accurately as possible the solo of “The Final countdown” by Europe. This solo includes a few interesting guitar techniques such as alternatet picking, vibrato, slides, bendings, use of tremolo bar, hammer ons, pull-offs, etc. The harmonized part will be also taught.
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.
