Watch the Shred-Ahead Blues Rock online guitar lesson by Jeff Beasley from Shred Ahead Blues Rock
Welcome to Shred Ahead: Blues and Rock with yours truly Jeff Beasley. This interactive lesson series will cover a gamut of techniques important to the modern day shredder. Alternate-picking, hybrid-picking, sweep-picking, legato-lines and string-skipping are just some of the ideas discussed and illustrated at length in these lessons from Truefire. The meat of this instructional series is building your improvisational skills as a shredder. You’ll learn to give every note a purpose, follow the form, and yet play at break-neck speed. We’ll cover 11th arpeggios, 13th arpeggios, augmented and diminished arpeggios, modern bebop scales and of course common pentatonic scales. You can use these more complex ideas and genuinely spice up your shred lines, taking you to the next level as a shredder and musician. The Shred Ahead series contains 20 very powerful lessons to give you the tools necessary to truly compete in the very competitive shred genre. Using “outside the box” ideas you’ll be able to elevate yourself above the typical pack of shred guitarists. I’ll give you note-for-note examples of how to move ahead in shred. You can copy them exactly or take the ideas and use them with your licks to create your own desired colors and flavors. Either way you’re going to gain exponential depth as a guitarist with this interactive series from TrueFire.
