Speed, precision, and endurance are three important athletic components of a musician's skill set. Brad Carlton's Guitar Lab: Speed, Precision, & Endurance is designed to assist a guitarist to develop these principles.
The concept of practicing in a rhythmic grid will be of paramount importance in all the studies throughout this course. You will learn various left hand techniques to assist you in developing speed decision and endurance. These techniques will include tapping, hammer ons, pull offs, and legato slides.
You will also be presented with the concept of thinking about theoretical analysis and fingerboard knowledge while practicing repetitions of speed drills. Throughout the course, I will explain in detail all fingering and dampening principles in addition to picking schemes when applicable.
The jam tracks provided in this course are modal in nature and will assist you in ear training. The minor pentatonic scale will be the foundation upon which the Dorian, Aeolian, and Phrygian modes will be overlaid. In addition, there will be a Phrygian dominant jam track and a mixolydian jam track.
