Syn's tips for this lesson are to use ornamentation/embellishing in order to make your chords and soloing more interesting. This helps in developing your own style and making your playing unique to you. I took this as a challenge to use nothing but the scales/arpeggios presented in this lesson and turn them in to a song. This is what I came up with.
This video is made for students of the Synyster Gates Guitar School, but any guitarist can benefit from it. I demonstrate how economy picking can be practiced by playing the intro to the song Hail To The King. Although the lead guitar beyond the intro to this song is not technically economy picking, it is going to teach you the fundamentals of great picking technique. Then you can apply this to all of your playing. Once you get the basic technique down, challenge yourself to learn the intro to this song.
This is my cover of Binge and Grab from Buckethead's album, Giant Robot. It's also my first attempt at a meaningful Youtube thumbnail. I'm pretty stoked about it.
This is my first recording using an audio interface and a DAW. I found it kind of challenging at first. But it is such a fun way to play/record. If anyone has questions I'll gladly share the knowledge I've gained so far.
