Watch the Pentatonic Picking Exercise 3 online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Beginner Blues-Rock Soloing
I like these little text boxes as they allow me to talk about something other than what I'm discussing in the attached video. We live in a great age of information as we know, just like you're watching me here on this video on your iPad or laptop. It's a great learning tool, as we can watch pretty much any guitar player we can think of at any time via YouTube. This has been instrumental for me in diving into other guitar player's techniques.
For example, I love Yngwie Malmsteen's guitar playing, but of course what is so vexing about him, like him or not, is that his technique is absolutely flawless. Sometimes I just like to watch videos of him so I can watch his hands. This gives me really good insight into how he plays certain things. One thing you'll notice across the board with all great players is that they make it look effortless. Yngwie especially! So as you practice your own technique, watch some of the masters and this gives you a great visual on what the end result should look like.
