This lesson is mostly focused on the picking hand.
Most of the parts of the arrangement are played in a way that your hand meets to play most of the nu-metal/thrash/death/progressive/power metal examples.
The chord progression is very basic.
In this lesson I will show how you can use advanced rhythmic concepts like odd time signatures and tempo changes to create more interesting musical passages. If you mix them in with simpler ideas you can create something original without losing the flow of the song.
This lesson focuses on some of Mike Stern's phrasing concepts: Blues, Chromatics, Enclosures, Outside playing, Tritone Substitions, Bebop phrases and interesting motifs. Lots of material to be used in your personal improvisations.
