  5. Improving Your Trills (#7557) - Page 3 by Peter Hsieh (1575)

  6. Advanced Sweeping (#4616) - Page 2 by James Ireland (304)
    This is just a spin off of the first lesson but it is much harder due to the wider stretching. Unfortunately this lesson is just as annoying as it is difficult.

  9. Playing Metal Part 1: Picking (#11727) - Page 2 by Mark Keider (300)
    This exercise uses the A Aeolian to ascend the high E string. The exercise moves up the neck in beats by each consecutive note and then works back to create a cycle.

  10. Skipping strings (1st. issue) (#1353) - Page 1 by Agustn Mombelli (422)
    The key here is to practice slowly and go increasing speed gradually. Skip the second string, use alternate strokes, so the first string is played always with an upstroke. This is in Bm. To be continued...

    This lesson is kind of annoying but none the less helpful. It will build up your finger coordination and make your sweep more fluid and accurate.

    This is a picking peice in the style of Yngwie Malmsteen. Always tap your foot on the beat and accent the downstrokes. With the right hand , move from the wrist and mute by resting on the bass strings.
