Shred Warrior: 4 Note Per String Part II
This pattern continues the idea of using 4 notes per string. This pattern is purely one note after another, whereas the last lesson contained redundant notes. Using these 4 note shapes is great because it can help you break out of the mold of 3 note per string runs. Don't get me wrong, I love my 3 note patterns but sometimes I feel like it all starts to sound the same: tri-pi-let-tri-pi-let-tri-pi-let! Another way to "refresh" your aproch to scales is to use sequences (more on that later). Anyways, remember to start practicing this slowly one note at a time (what!). I highly recomend using the metronome to practice. Practice a range of diffrent tempos slow, medium, fast, and faster! In that order! By the way, make sure you put this lick into context musicaaly when soloing, build up to it with bends, slides, a heartfelt melody, etc,-just make sure it doesn't sound like a technical excercise!
