STUDY Legato Chop builder ...CON­TIN­UED

Guitar Techniques - - Play: Rock -

Ex­am­ples 8f to 8i il­lus­trate a se­lec­tion of sin­gle-string E ma­jor ‘cell’ ideas (E F# G# A B C# D#) and your job is to take each pat­tern through the scale in as­cend­ing and de­scend­ing forms. The study ends with a Sa­tri­ani-es­que legato flurry. The trick here is to keep the rhythm con­stant and de­fined. There is a nat­u­ral ten­dency to rush these ideas but this can sound scrappy and un­con­trolled, so en­sure those 16ths are clearly ac­cented and rhyth­mi­cally po­si­tioned.
