    I think this question will be interesting for a lot of people. When you´re picking with an downward pickslant, you can mute the strings with the "outer" part of the hand (the side of the hand where the pinky is). When you change directions and bring your hand into a position so that you can...

    Hi all, I have only recently got back into guitar "seriously" over the past year or so after many many years of non playing or very minimal playing and have been having a raft of issues recently with my technique. I was always more or less a legato based player when growing up but have...

    Here is a Youtube lesson I did with my RG550 showing how to play a fast pentatonic ZW style lick. That RG550 is a great guitar by the way seems like they were made for this kind of stuff.

    The legacy continues!!!!! This time you're gonna learn even more specifics of how to sweep like a magnum sweeper and melt your stepdads face off with blazing arpeggios. Follow my practice tips and your sweep picking is going to get hotter than the tail pipe of Yngwie's Ferrari. Chew on this...

    There was a lot of fret buzz coming from my 560 so recently, just to test out a theory, I picked lightly and the buzz was gone. I knew the action was set pretty low from the time I got it but I never realized how much of an impact it can really have. Then, reading on Rich's site about action...

    Hey to everybody, I found this video on Yout*be to be quite helpful and maybe it is some good ideas here: It's actually a nice idea I never thought about As I'm not a great picker, this technique might help a lot: this guy uses slightly muted legato to get that particular "staccato" sound...

    Hey everyone, I´m new to this forum and this is my very first post. Maybe my below questions have been answered already somewhere in the forum but when I did a search I couldn´t find the answers I´m looking for. I have a what I think a very specific question about alternate picking. I´ll...

    That's what I'm looking for, a fast picking attack response, all tube amp, that give me good sound. I have played amps that gave me so slow response to my picking attack that really irritate me. As a fast player, I want to hear everything I'm playing in the exact mommet. For example, with...

    Hey Guys, I have a problem. When I sweep pick, I get a cramp in my fretboard hand, down the side of my hand from right under my pinky down to my wrist, so basically the length of my palm. but its just down the side. Am I doing something wrong, or what. Any advice? Much appreciated...

    Hi - I've been playing for over 20 years and I used to practice 2-6 hours a day. The only time I ever had *pain* afterwards was when I took classical guitar lessons and my right wrist developed tendonitis from all of the finger picking. I've recently ramped-up my practicing again, focusing on...

    I know this sounds like the stupidest question one could possibly ask, I'm talking about how you come into contact with the string and what you do with it, and how you switch from string to string. The first option is to move the tip of the pick from point A to point B, with the string being...

    This is a mixolydian picking exercise, actually from a song called Eternal Passage. This song is one of my 9 songs on the 2nd OSV album, which is available worldwide through iTunes. Click here to download the bigger version of the tablature and the mp3...

    Because having a forum that discusses a shred guitar company (more or less) is like having a bowling forum not having a poll asking for your average scores. For some reason I've apparently been really hustling it recently, as right now I can comfortably alternate pick at roughly 120 bpm (all...

    i'm in love with fast alternate picking (thank you gilberto) and i love playing em as technique builders but i have a hard time finding nice, easy to digest, short licks. so i've shared a few of my favourites here. i decided to create a thread where we can all post some of our favourite picking...

    as i get more into alternate picking, i find myself thinking about a few things. a lot of the time, i end up practicing just purely fast alternate picking stuff for like 3 hours plus straight with no break because it's so damn fun. gilbert, malmsteen and petrucci riffs. after a while though...
