In this lesson, we go back to a previous lesson's technique of using tapping in combination with slides, hammer-ons and unassisted hammer-ons to generate speed and create a very fluid, "bubbly" type of sound. What I like most about this technique is that it is a very easy method of pulling off fast licks without requiring much dexterity from all the fingers of the fretting hand.
Here's a technique I use that helps me groove with an electronic four-to-the-floor dance groove. It's also is reminiscent of the "arpeggiator" plug-ins you hear in modern dance music, electronic music and even modern pop music like Pink, 30 Seconds to Mars, Lady Gaga and other well-known artists.
This time around, I’d like to share a trick based around a deceptively easy-to-play, simple concept that will add some sophistication to your improvisations (while also being sure to turn heads with its attention-grabbing coolness!): open-voiced, string-skipping 7th arpeggios.
