The Aleph - Adam Skantze & Sam Birchall (Play-Through)

Spice Up Your Solos With These Modern Rhythmic Licks!
Sam Birchall debuts at JTC with a very original, unique and fresh release that is going to blow your guitar world wide open! With varying degrees of intensity from the beautiful to the aggressive, these 20 modern rhythmic licks will show you how to incorporate and master chordal ideas in your own guitar solos!

There is a real progression in the licks starting with simpler more introductory licks which ease you into the idea of using rhythmic chordal ideas in your licks. Then as you work through these 20 ideas Sam will guide you into the more complex and advanced licks.

On the theory side on things, there is a lot going on! We've got interesting use of rhythmic ideas, syncopation, drop-chords, great use of colour notes and chord extensions and wide interval ideas. Sam's licks are the perfect example of how you can really get a lot of interesting sounds out of a mostly diatonic palette! If you can learn to do a lot with a little, then imagine what's possible when you expand your ideas further!

Some of the fantastic techniques in this pack include; hybrid picking, legato (hammer ons and pull offs), sliding, pick raking, open-strings, palm-muting, finger rolling, tapping, economy picking, percussive clicks and letting notes ring into each other to create chordal effects... plus much more!

If you can master each of these super creative licks in turn then you'll be well on your way to adding your own interesting rhythmic/chordal ideas into your own licks and solos!
