Remember, it is important to realize that playing fast - or "shredding" - should not be merely a flailing, spastic, haphazard jumble of notes or "stuff" you play as fast as you can. It should be a musical idea - just played faster than usual.
The pattern we will use this time is a series of interlocking patterns that cover an octave of the fretboard. This pattern will be playing in three note groupings of the E major scale on the B and E strings. You might recall some of these patterns from the diatonic modes! That is where they come from.
This tutorial is one in a series on building and using speed (very fast playing).
There are also these tutorials on visualizing and playing these patterns all over the fretboard.
I find it quite easy (so far!) to navigate, and found the "where do I start" to be very helpful! I'm getting there!!
I LOVE the forum, too. I've never been one to use forums, but the GT forum is full of great people and helpful information at ALL levels! Congrats on a WONDERFUL site!!Good job!
