Watch the Dave's Caprice online guitar lesson by Dave Celentano from Classical Concepts for Rock Guitar

"Dave's Caprice" was inspired by Paganini's "24th Caprice (variation #1)" and is an exercise I wrote to develop the five string sweep picking technique. The chord progression in the second part of this exercise is very similar to the one in the chapter "Classical Chord Progression" from earlier in this course, which also follows the cycle of ascending fourths. Composers J.S. Bach and Paganini have both used this type of progression in their works.
