Description

This tutorial expands on building speed at playing single note melodic soloing lines. We will apply the skills and ideas taught in the previous speedy idea tutorials to a chord progression in a minor key. We'll learn linear lines, pedal point lines and arpeggio lines.

Again, remember, it is important to remember the goal in this tutorial is to play fast in a musical way. "Shredding" isn't 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.

So we are going to learn some new fast licks, but we are also going to aim at playing them in time, at the right time, over a chord progression in a minor key. This tutorial assumes you have the skills presented in these earlier tutorials on speed building technique and visualizing the scale patterns being used. If you haven't worked through them yet, I strongly encourage you to do so. If you have successfully worked through them, then let's shred!
