A Guitar Technique Course Aimed At Electric Guitarists Who Are Wanting To Play Fast And Impressive Guitar Solos.
Here's What The Guitar Legato Fast Start System Is Made Up Of...
Module 1: In this module we'll start looking at hammer-ons in a very organized way.
You'll learn about the four different types of hammer-ons. By being aware of all the types of hammer-ons, you'll be able to locate and get rid of specific weaknesses in your hammer-on technique. This will allow you to develop a well-rounded and effortless hammer-on technique.
You'll discover the four hammer-on exercises that guitarists often neglect. Although these four exercises are very simple to understand and learn, many guitar players don't practice them. By practicing these exercises you'll be able to build a foundation of technique that will help you easily learn more advanced hammer-on ideas.
You'll learn Hammer-On Study One. This is a technical study that I composed specially for this course. It will help you to improve your hammer-on timing, strength and endurance. It will also help you to get a much better coordination between your picking and fretting hands. (This is a great skill to develop if you want to master playing guitar licks that mix picking and legato).
You'll get specific instructions on how to practice Hammer-On Study 1. Because I want to leave nothing to chance, I have created VERY specific instructions on how to practice the study for maximum results. I have even created two videos that show me actually practicing the study. This means that you won't waste time with trial-and-error...you'll know exactly how to practice in an effective way.
Module 2: In this module we continue looking at hammer-ons. We'll be taking a look at the most common and important type of hammer-on...
You'll learn about the six finger combinations that you need to practice. Many guitarists practice their hammer-ons in a very disorganized and unsystematic way. (And this causes their progress to be MUCH slower than it needs to be). By understanding all the combinations, you will be able to systematically find and overcome any weaknesses that you currently have with your hammer-on technique. And this will mean that your legato technique will develop at a faster rate.
You'll discover the important concept of pressure transfer. If you practice ANY hammer-on exercise without understanding this concept, you'll be more likely to get poor results from your practice. On the other hand, by understanding this important concept you'll learn how to play hammer-ons in a way that is physically easier. (And this means that you'll be able to play hammer-ons faster, without your hand tiring so much).
You'll learn six powerful hammer-on exercises that develop all possible finger combinations. These exercises are extremely important as they help you develop strength and coordination will all fingers of your fretting-hand. And I make sure to give you very specific practice advice so that you'll gain maximum benefit from practicing them.
You'll learn and master Hammer-On Study Two. This study will help you a LOT. It specifically helps you master a common timing problem that many guitarists have.
You'll discover six advanced hammer-on exercises. These exercises expand upon the ones that you'll learn earlier in this module. I have been doing these exercises every week for a LONG time, and have found them to be six of the most useful and powerful exercises for developing hammer-on technique.
Module 3: By this stage of the course, you will find that your hammer-on technique has improved a lot. And this means that we can start looking at some musical ideas that use hammer-ons. And this important. Why? Because the goal is to be able to do hammer-ons fluently in a musical context!
You'll discover four legato mechanics. By learning and understanding these mechanics, you'll be able to create your own musical ideas. And this will help you to expand your ability to solo and improvise in a creative way.
You'll learn six foundational hammer-on scale ideas. Although these scale ideas are fairly simple to learn, they will be extremely helpful. They will help you to make substantial improvements to your hammer-on timing.
You'll learn three hammer-on exercises that will help develop your three-note-per-string hammer-on technique. These exercises are VERY important, as they help you develop three of the most important hammer-on patterns. Once mastered, these patterns can be combined to create awesome-sounding legato scale runs and licks.
You'll get to master six more advanced hammer-on scale ideas. These scale ideas with further develop your hammer-on technique. They will also help you to improve your legato timing. (Plus, they sound pretty impressive when played quickly!). :-)
Module 4: This module expands upon the technique and skill that you will develop in the last three module.
You’ll learn about the two different types of pull-offs. Many guitarists only work on one type of pull-off. And this means that they completely neglect the second type. And this causes huge weaknesses in their pull-off technique. By learning about BOTH types of pull-offs you'll be able to avoid this very common mistake.
You’ll discover four exercises that develop the first type of pull-off. These exercises are very useful as they help you to develop a foundational of pull-off technique. With this foundational you'll be more prepared to easily learn more advanced pull-off ideas.
You'll get to learn and master Pull-Off Study 1. This study will help you to develop more strength and better timing with your pull-off technique. You'll also get very specific advice on how to practice this study. And this means that you'll get better results from your practice.
