Watch the Piano Music online guitar lesson by Angus Clark from Essentials: Neoclassical Rock Soloing

Please note that the 16th note feel is really important to how this piece sounds.

The first two chords are addressed using arpeggios and scales. The scale work is done using pull-offs. The last run makes use of an open string to cover a position shift which is a very classical technique.

Next, the progression changes to a I - V - vi - IV. The first round on the progression is (just like in the first etude), just arpeggios. The technique we are exploring here is using open strings to facilitate position shifts so watch closely. The scale that transitions to the next section uses a position shift in order to put us in the right position for the next downbeat.

The next section is based on a "1-2-3-1" sequence in which we target the downbeats to keep them inside the chords as the chords change underneath. Here's where your 16th note feel is really important.

PEDAL POINT LICK! You knew it was coming. Very Yngwie, very classical. Get it, learn it, know it.

SEXTUPLET PATTERN! Please note, if you aren't able to follow me calling out the names of the notes and need to use the TAB, that is a frailty in your skill set. Fix it!
