TUNING: C G C F A D
Hi guys! Welcome to my redo of lesson 13 of Learn That Solo! Today we look at how to play the solo from 'Stricken' by Disturbed.
This is a great solo. One of my favourites of all time. It's all relatively doable as long as you can deal with some pentatonic stuff and some melodic passages with a few slides and bends.
Section 3 Tips:
This works with some pretty fast legato/pulloff techniques. I would suggest that you keep your pointer finger flat across the first 2 strings to reduce superfluous movement. Try to avoid doing alternate picking in this section. Play it all down stroked as the speed will all come from your left/fretting hand.
Section 4 Tips:
Keep it slow to start. This is a relatively pentatonic idea with a few extra notes. It's a bit complex with phrasing as there's bends legato and slides. Be patient and try learn it in chunks and join it all together later at is can be a bit overwhelming at first.
Take care guys! Happy shredding!
Here's the old crap one I did early 2012: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QyLI0qFwI2M
