In this lesson we cover more alternate picking exercises to improve your right hand technique.

Syn’s Tips

After you get this down, I highly recommend that you work on going up the scale starting on the 10th fret of the 6th string reversing the direction of notes from descending to Ascending.

I love the way these Fast Runs sound when you engage your Neck Pickup. It has a very percussive sound and it is a fundamental lick in Metal Music!

Help each other out on this one. I know that it’s hard to communicate music with words, that is why I wanted to create a community of people to help each other fill in the gaps that is an unfortunate side effect of learning online. It Doesn’t Have to Be This Way! You can help me prove to the world that all of your questions can be answered with help from your new friends! You will get it back in spades I promise because there will be SO much wonderful information floating around this place for all to enjoy!

Ids Schiere The best tips I can really give is start easy and slow with a metronome. Dont try to run before you can walk.

Joel Spooner Change root note to 4th note and start scale from 4th note and just continue same notes until you hit your new root note 4th. Technicallu we can call this c lydian if g major?

Brian Haner Sr. GREAT Point, Jesus! By altering the fingering a bit, this can be changed to fit any mode! Can you explain to everyone how to make this into a Lydian lick?

Jesús David Rincón Puche Of course, Papa Gates! Well, this lydian mode (using the same notes as we did on this exercise) we start on the low F of the guitar and following the sequence we have in C major (only natural notes) and then we start. With that in mind, the exercise would be like this First two strings e---5---3---1 b--------------5--3--1 Second two strings b--5--3--1 g----------4--2--0 d-----------------(5) this means play the G5 instead of the G0 Third g--4--2--0 d------------3--2--0 fourth d--3--2--0 a-------------3--2--0 final a--3--2--0 e-----------3--1 In addition to this, we can play this one octave higher by starting on the 17th of the first string (also an A)
