APOLOGIES FOR THE FLOOR SHOT at the beginning and end but I was trying a new recording method.
In this technical guitar ramble (not a lesson, more like a lecture), guitarist Marshall Harrison covers an important technique to help you think more like a pianist. First, he covers the genesis of SWYBRYD in 2002 and some intermediate SWYBRYD exercises. Then he shows how RIO (Repeat In Octaves) simplifies extended range scales and arpeggios. He then describes Bruno Economy Picking to economize picking in an imperfect world as opposed to Gambale Economy picking (Perfect World).
