Alternate, Sweep, Legato, Tapping and Hybrid picking, which you can use in your solos.These licks are an example of how
the techniques can be used in a musical context and hopefully they will give you a starting point for your own lines. Moreover, throughout the book you’ll find fretboard diagrams that illustrate horizontal & diagonal connections for scales
and modes, so that you will be able to apply all the patterns you’ll learn throughout the book and CREATE YOUR OWN FANTASTIC LICKS!!

The electric guitar technique workout

electric guitar technique workout


The Electric Guitar Technique Workout is the title of my first book. After years of preparation it’s finally ready! The purpose behind this book is to sum up my knowledge and perspective regarding teaching technique for electric guitar. As you will see, it is divided into 4 parts.

1. Alternate picking, 2. Sweep picking, 3.Legato, 4. Licks

Each one of the first 3 chapters analyze one specific technique. There, you will find some of the most popular scale sequences and patterns along with a few favorites of my own. The last chapter includes licks that combine the majority of the material that is covered in the first three chapters. So, this last chapter can be basically a guide on how to combine various patterns.

Now, how to use this book? First, work on each pattern with a metronome. Try and play it clean and accurately. Then employ your scales and make licks, linear, vertical and diagonal. Use one pattern at first and then try to combine different ones. As mentioned above, you’ll find examples at the licks chapter.

This is my way of teaching technique all levels of students since 2002, and I’ve seen it work for beginners to pros. Inside you will find:

-35 Alternate picking sequences

-21 Sweep patters

-15 Legato patterns

26 Licks that use Alternate, Sweep, Legato, Tapping and Hybrid picking.

The material is more than enough to help you enhance your technique or even build it from scratch. I am studying exclusively this material till now, always making new variations and use them in my solos. This book has so much inside, and trust me, it will keep you occupied for many, many years.
