As part of MusicRadar’s 30 day guitar challenge, John 5 shares his own guest lesson including string-skipped arpeggios and tapping in both rhythm and lead playing.
“This month, John takes us through his approaches to quintessential rock techniques string skipping and tapping. His speed is utterly ferocious at times, but we’d urge you to stick with the lesson even if up-tempo playing isn’t your bag.
All of John’s examples in this month’s video lesson can be distilled down to simple ideas, each less than a bar of music in length, which can then be moved around the fretboard to create more sophisticated licks. Focusing on these basic ideas will help you to put together your own more advanced creations.”
