Paul Gilbert is undoubtedly one of the most popular guitar shredders of all time. He is known for his otherworldly technique and precision. He literally never seems to ever mess up. That is why we all love him yet hate him at the same time. 🙂
The technique we are studying in the video guitar lesson is his string skipping arpeggios style. He uses this technique often in his popular instrumental "Scarified".
"Scarified" is a dual guitar instrumental that he wrote back when he was in Racer X. Take a listen to that track and you will hear a bunch of string skipping arpeggios all over the place.
This is a very exciting technique and once you get the patterns down it really isn't very difficult. In this video lesson I show you a little etude that I wrote that uses the string skipping arpeggio technique throughout.
Everything will be much easier to follow if you download the TAB first. Be sure to download it from the link below.
Have fun and take you time with this one. Some of the large stretches may take a little getting used to.
