Watch the Dweezology: Phrase Generators online guitar lesson by Dweezil Zappa from Dweezology: Phrase Generators
Hello, I’m Dweezil Zappa and welcome to Dweezology: Phrase Generators. I'd like to share a few techniques I've developed to help you create a new vocabulary of exciting rhythmic and harmonic combinations.
In this course, I’ll show you some picking techniques and fingerings I use to permutate complex melodic rhythmic patterns. Together we will discover ways to recognize and decipher odd number note groupings through sub division and explore what their unique rhythmic contouring has to offer our lead playing and composition. In a series of unique play along examples we will work on shifting our musical awareness towards emphasis on rhythm first as I teach you fun ways to attach notes to rhythms. I'll discuss the recipes for sub division variations so that you will be able to play different groups of 5 all the way up to groups of 13. I'll expand on the usage of my "Fretboard Freedom" pentatonic strategies and introduce you to the 3-1-3 economy picking technique. 3 notes on 1 string - 1 note on the next - 3 again on the next. I’ll show you some techniques that will bring these concepts all together allowing you to create your own mind blowing new arsenal of rhythmically enhanced musical phrases.
I will demonstrate and explain each approach and break down every example in detail, with all of the key examples tabbed and notated for you. You’ll also get play along audio tracks with and without bass, allowing you even more flexibility to practice and create your own phrases. Alright, grab your guitars and let’s get started!
