String skipping is a technique I use in a handful of solos that I’ve recorded with my band, Falling in Reverse. Some of my guitar students have erroneously assumed that certain phrases were performed using sweep picking, but in fact I used string skipping, along with alternate and economy picking, to create a similar effect. If you’re a fan of the sound of fast alternate- and sweep/economy-picked phrases, the string-skipping techniques I demonstrate in this month’s lesson will appeal to you.
Falling In Reverse have just premiered the official music video for "Good Girls Bad Guys," which was directed by Zach Merck. You can check out the Ronnie Radke-fronted band's hilarious new video below.
