Michael Schenker

Guitar Techniques - - Play: Hot Blues -

This Michael Schenker-in­spired ex­am­ple in D mi­nor fea­tures two sim­ple but su­per-handy se­quences in D Mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic. Sit­u­ated around ‘shape 1’ at the 10th fret, the main chal­lenge is a smooth tran­si­tion from the fast de­scend­ing 16ths of the first se­quence to the as­cend­ing triplets of the sec­ond. So fo­cus on this tran­si­tion, maybe even putting a metronome to use while you’re at it. The ex­am­ple ends with a clas­sic blues-rock lick, bend­ing from 13th to 15th fret on the sec­ond string, to the root (D). Schenker is one of the great­est bluesy-rock gui­tarists ever!
