Watch the Technique Combinations online guitar lesson by Brad Carlton from Guitar Lab: Super Sustain

This lesson presents 13 technique combinations involving the following techniques: picking hand dampening, fretting hand hammer ons (hammer ons from nowhere), vibrato, legato slides, picking, bends, releases, and pulls offs.

I will demonstrate these moves in various places throughout the E minor pentatonic scale. You can then practice on your own against the jam tracks and apply all the things you've learned through each lesson.

It will be very important that when you are jamming against the tracks, you stay on task and focus on this linear approach to the fingerboard. I suggest you discipline yourself to not play in your normal comfort zone. This means no autopilot, no mindless play, no relying on pure muscle memory. Do this for the first part of your practice session, and after you've got a handle on some of this information, implement it into your normal playing. This is the approach if you want to improve.
