Picking advice on Adrian Smith’s solo from “The Trooper”. What’s the best way to pick progressively faster licks? I show how I do it but they’re may be an easier or better way. Up for any advice and help to get up to speed.
The track, which was originally recorded for 2013's "Hail to the King" album, now include on the streaming version of "Diamonds in the Rough" (CD version released in 2008) which is released on February 7. Have fun 🤘🏽
At first..I thought I was flatting the 3rd and raising it. Then realized it was actually the 5th. So when I did the lead I didnt go as far as I wanted to.. I stayed around the notes from the chord. The 2nd half is all gminor over top the harmonics. Basically having fun pushing my sweeps.
Stepping out of my comfort zone and trying some lead improv. Usually not something I dip into very often, mainly due to lack of scale knowledge, but the only way to getter better is by doing. Hope you enjoy it.
