In this edition of Guitar Gym, Chris Buono focuses on developing your alternate picking technique with an emphasis on precision, timing, endurance and speed. Buono will guide you through 27 Workouts across 3 levels. In Level 1 you'll learn about the concept of outside and inside "pivots" through simple intervallic playing fueled by perfect 5ths with Workouts ranging from 40 BPM to 100 BPM. In Level 2 the outside and inside pivot-based Workouts become more challenging as they work through sequences of perfect 4ths and the tempos increase to 50 BPM through 110 BPM. Level 3 ups the ante with a trio of Workouts that chops up a major scale in perfect 5ths in every possible direction at a tempo range of 60 BPM and 120 BPM.
Each Guitar Gym course focuses on a specific guitar technique by guiding the student through a deliberately prescribed series of optimized workouts, organized across a series of levels with increasing intensity. Buono demonstrates each of the workouts by explaining how the workout is engineered and then showing you how to play the workout correctly.
The workouts are ALL interactive video playalongs -- Buono performs each workout with you, for the correct amount of time, at all of the prescribed tempos. You will not be alone in the shed!
All of the workouts also include text guides, PDF charts, Guitar Pro files and all of the practice metronome tracks, at all of the prescribed tempos. Everything you need to develop monster chops by practicing correctly is included.
Practice does NOT make perfect -- "perfect" practice does. We've heard this time and again from our instructors and we get it; practice the wrong thing, or practice the wrong way, and you'll learn how to play it perfectly wrong. Makes "perfect" sense but what exactly do we practice, and how specifically do we practice it? TrueFire's resident Professor of the Deep, Chris Buono has invested the last couple of decades coming up with the answer.
Developing solid guitar techniques is particularly subject to the quality and intensity of your practice regimens -- you'll only get so far relying on repetition and frequency alone. Chris Buono's Guitar Gym workouts will take you the rest of the way with 12 collections of tried, tested and proven intensive workouts for Triad Arpeggios, Tapping, Hybrid Picking, Alternate Picking, Hammers & Pull-Offs, Power Chords, Scales, Speed Picking,Triads, Harmonic Minor Triad Chord Scales, Major Triad Chord Scales and Melodic Minor Triad Chord Scales
