In this guitar lesson, Alejandra will teach you a cool legato lick on a single string. The lick is in C major and it´s great for building up speed, also try it in every string and keys. When we say legato we are talking about hammers on and pulls off, and in this particular guitar exercise we are going to play only one picking stroke at the beginning of the pattern on each string. So try it very slow and increase the speed gradually with a metronome. The idea is to play this guitar exercise very slow at first and then start to gain speed gradually. I also recommend you to check out great legato players like Allan Holdsworth, Brett Garsed, Greg Howe, Richie Kotzen, among others.
Ok, hope this helps and don´t forget to come up with your own ideas, which is the best advice for starting to find `your´ unique sound and style. That is all for today... Also I suggest that you keep enjoying and learning from Alejandra and all the staff of Guitarcontrol.com! Where? In our free guitar lessons at www.youtube.com/guitarcontrol
