In this lesson we will explore Alberto Lombardi’s approach to single note techniques on the electric guitar. The electric guitar has always been Alberto’s main instrument, despite his deep love for fingerstyle acoustic guitar. Growing up as a musician in the early 1990s, there was a lot of focus on technique but at the same time Alberto was fascinated by the players that used their instrument in a very musical way, i.e. with unusual picking and note choice solutions. He was oriented by “pure” techniques like speed with alternate picking or super fast tapping, but he also loved fast flying phrases that were at the same time flashy and musical.
As in his “Hot Licks for the Acoustic Guitarist” lesson, the aim in this lesson is to collect patterns and ideas to build a vocabulary, strengthen the
hands and open a path to further exploring. Two recommendations:
1) Consider this lesson just a starting point, make your own variations and adaptations.
2) Start slowly and always use a metronome, this will help build a clean technique and sound.
In this lesson we will explore and study:
