Alternative Shred-OR-stuff I Cant Play
The next few lesssons,Im going to backtrack a bit,and give some "exercises" that Ive used over the years to help with some of the "crazier" licks we've been doing.A lot of guys have asked me about the "reality" of being able to play the licks at the suggested tempos-its actually not that bad,but if your not used to fast hammers and pulls,string skipping,and the like,some of these are likely to reduce your left hand to jello!(Not to worry-Some of these kick my butt too,if I dont stay on top of 'em!:])So,here we have an ascending-string skipping-all hammered and pulled-climbing-ends with a blues idea-lick(whew!...)Note-Ive tried to make these exercises "lick-like",so they dont get boring,and we dont get into the 1-2-3-4,1-2-3-4,1-2-3-4 syndrome.This one could resolve anywhere-I chose "Emin"(original,huh?:])Anyway-I only pick on the ascending part-going back down is all left hand(but for an intersting,allbeit difficult change,TRY picking it-if you can do it,you da' man!!)Enjoy-more soon...
