String Skipping Exercises – Lesson 44

In this lesson we go over basic string skipping techniques.

Syn’s Tips

Even with the few examples Papa Gates shows us, you can see how much more musical this technique makes a potentially boring scale sound!

Try playing these exercises to the backing tracks located in the “content” menu of the lesson player. Try incorporating other licks as well blending the new with the old.

The only way to get these down or “grooved in” is to cycle through all of the exercises you’ve learned while playing to the backing tracks. It’s important to add all of your embelishments, style techniques, and picking exercises to each solo you practice. The more you leave one out, the less it’ll be grooved simply because, “If you don’t use it, you lose it!”

Niko Oinonen There is a small discrepancy in the tab. At bars 27 and 35, the 5 and the 8 on the first string are reverse of what is played in the video.
