Matthieu Dubois Syn, we are learning this particular technique from you, but what about you? I'm curious to know who teach you that technique?

Yair Molakandov the first pattern is in the B phrygian dominant scale which is the fifth mode of the E harmonic minor scale. you can watch lessons 100 and 101 to learn about those scales. the second pattern is in Em, it is some sort of an Em9 arpeggio. the third and forth patterns are both arpeggios of Cmaj7 and than Fmaj7.

Ids Schiere Is it just me or is the Synthetic recording faster than the video recording? When i put it on the eight note sixlets(have no idea how you actually call them) I can play along at 150% with the video recording but the synthetic recording at 150% is to fast for me.

Allen EL I see on the fourth string when you play c and b it looks like you are using 1 to fret the b. Is there a reason for this? I feel like using two and three on c and b makes more sense but I'm sure there is a reason you are using one to fret it. Could anyone help explain me what fingering I should use? Thank you

Ids Schiere I think it has somethin to do with the fact that it makes it easier to do the part that comes after it. At least I played it pretty naturally in this way.
