Adding three-note-per-string linear scales to your guitar-playing arsenal is great for building speed and coming up with cool new lick ideas. Repeating shapes across the strings give a really distinctive sound - one that’s used throughout rock and metal playing.
In this short electric guitar video lesson, Elixir Strings artist Cameron Cooper starts with a basic three-note-per-string pattern and demonstrates how to develop ideas with it. Using slides, bends and other expressive techniques, he shows us how to turn these patterns into musical phrases that will give our soloing a new lease of life!
Cameron’s go-tos are Elixir OPTIWEB Coated Electric Strings for their long tone life and great feel.
