This is an exercise I started adding to my regular practice routing. It’s playing each of the scales I am working on with different timing.
The video is very “Uncut”, and there are a couple of spots in it that are…, well should have been re-done, but hey, the whole point of this blog is about documenting my progress as I learn and improve my guitar playing, so unfortunately for you, the viewer, you get to sit through the bloopers, Sorry bout that.
The rhythms I am counting in the video are…
1 2 3 4
1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +
1 e + a 2 e + a 3 e + a 4 e + a
1 + a 2 + a 3 + a 4 + a
In the video I also mention a book titled, Rhythmic Lead Guitar I thoroughly recommend any of Barrett’s book’s. He is an amazing teacher, and for only a couple of buck’s you will dramatically improve your knowledge of the guitar.
