3 Note Per String Vertical Pivots in E Minor

Syn's tips

Pivots are great to help extend and lengthen runs into really dramatic builds. Once you are fairly comfortable with this exercise, its great to pick a target note to end on(usually with a strong bend and vibrato) so there’s intent to this exercise.

It’s very easy to settle into these exercises without working to make them “musical”. It’s very important to use these strategically in your solos surrounding them with strong melodies and motifs. They should be the supporting cast to amazingly crafted melody.
