This package is aimed at intermediate level players who want to expand their improvisational vocabulary. The Lydian mode is explained in detail in the included lesson write-up, alongside the 6 great licks featured in the main video.
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.
This lesson is about the CAGED System. Weʼre starting simple with just major chord shapes and root shapes. The root shapes will give you a great way to have reference points all over the neck and will enable you to visualize positions and keys all over the neck more effectively.
This is a simplified version of my tune "Silver Gate". It is a real challenge to all intermediate guitarists, and great review for every advanced player. The key of this tune is accuracy in left hand slides and right hand sweep picking.
This short solo is a bit of a challenge due to the multiple techniques required and rapid switching between them. It begins in the key of E but changes for a short time to A and then D. It's not blazingly fast throughout but it's fast enough to expose weaknesses in your playing.
