Speed Tech 9

Animated Speed Tech 9 tab by ActionTab on guitar. So easy you'll be playing in minutes.

This exercise is from the Core Skills section on developing Speed Techniques.

Listen to the Normal speed audio first (under 'Tools' in the menu) before checking out the ActionTab. Also, you will find the Tablature View (also under 'Tools') useful for this exercise.

Now let's combine the skills from the previous 3 exercises to make sure you've got the techniques working together. Here we go back to picking the open E twice and then landing a fretboard note, but we also play a tune using the E Hindu scale:

E Hindu Scale:

E - F# - G# - A - B - C - D - E

This is great alternate picking practice that can lead to forming your own solos. Try making your own tunes up, and use different strings. Applying these techniques for yourself will make them second nature. Next we look at switching strings using alternate picking.
