CLICK AND SUBSCRIBE!

This short lick incorporates John Mclaughlin’s main left hand fingerings that he employs when improvising jazz/fusion guitar lines. He ascends and descends using pentatonics, tetrachords, arpeggios and quartal groupings.

In this lick I employ strict alternate picking with the right hand for tight rhythmic 4 note [Tetrachord] groupings.

Alternate Picking Guitar Technique Explained Part 2

yt_logo_rgb_light CLICK AND SUBSCRIBE!

In this exercise we play the most common thing known to man on the guitar “The minor pentatonic” scale.

BUT, the key here is to play and “Count” “1 2 3 4 5 6” to get the “Rhythm” so that the picking and fretting hands can articulate the phrase musically in time and in synchronisation.

This next exercise is a classic “Repetition” alternate picking exercise. Count “1 e and a 2 e and a 3 e and a 4 e and a” and play in a double timed tetrachord manner accenting the 1st note in each 4 note grouping
