Hi, everybody. This is Darrin Goodman from guitarcontrol.com
bringing you this video lesson today. Today I want to show you
its a little chunk from Flight of the Bumblebee that I think
its a really great picking exercise for alternate picking
for your right hand. So be sure to click on the link in the
description for the tabs and lets get started.
Usually this type of thing Im not really fond of because
its not diatonic; its completely chromatic. Youve got
all these notes just a half-step apart from each other,
but in this context I think it sounds kind of cool.
Starting off, were on the 8th fret of the 2nd string
with your middle finger; to the 7th fret and thats
a downstroke to the 7th fret, is an upstroke. Now we
switch to the 3rd string, starting at the 10th fret, and
now this is a downstroke. Down, up on 9, down on 8.
Then, from there, we start on the we go back to the
2nd string, but we start on the 9th fret now: 9, 8, 7,
8; back to the 3rd string and then ascend back up.
You just simply repeat that sequence over and over again.
Something you should practice with a metronome and
start off slow and just slowly build-up your speed.
Its a really recognizable lick.
Anyway, like I said, be sure to click on the link in
the description for the tabs and until next time
