In this video guitar lesson we will take a look at a cool scale technique used by players such as Dimebag Darrell, Eddie Van Halen and Dave Mustaine.

It involves taking a one string guitar lick and symmetrically moving it across strings creating a very unpredictable yet exciting musical effect on the listener.

The video demonstrates various uses of this technique including using it within tapping licks. There really are no limits to what you can do using various types of symmetrical guitar licks.

    nice lessons on here. I would like to donate as soon as possible. I would like to see more advanced substitution ideas. I play a lot of “jam” one key stuff and would like get more licks that sorta step out and build tension more. thanks!
