MR BIG VER­SION

[PAUL GIL­BERT’s GUI­TAR] At 122bpm, the dou­ble-pick­ing, com­bined with palm-mut­ing can be chal­leng­ing, par­tic­u­larly in main­tain­ing flu­ency and stamina. It’s best to per­fect your co-or­di­na­tion of the main fig­ure at around 100bpm to start with, as this will pro­mote clean ex­e­cu­tion and avoid any cut­ting of cor­ners. Paul tends to im­pro­vise with sim­ple melodic ideas in and around the E Ma­jor scale, so it’s worth check­ing out what he does live.
