Lost World 8 – Tapping Guitar Lesson

Ultimate tapping guitar lesson in froggy style! This lessons shows how the tapping line was built. The lick starts with a bend and is based on familiar minor pentatonic shape. But due to the string skips and little variating starts to sound modern, flashy and surprising. This lesson also shows you how Rabbit style string skips can make your basic tapping shapes sound more exciting!
This is not for the absolute beginners on lead guitar. You should know your basic tapping skills before jumping into this lesson.

Lost World – Guitar Lesson 7: Unison Bends

Unison bends can give your single note more power and meaning. Considered as a basic technique, but it’s actually trickier if you want to make it sound good. Reaching the right pitch is the thing.

Lost World – Guitar Lesson 6: Super Force Hammering

Hammering the notes with left hand while the right hand serves as the string muter. Flashy yet simple!
It’s a special technique. Don’t take it too seriously. Remember it is all about playing with(!) the guitar!


Lost World – Guitar Lesson 5: Double picking

Two guitar players come to my mind when I’m thinking about this double picking approach: Jake E. Lee (from Bark at the Moon era Ozzy Osbourne band) and John Sykes (from 1987 era Whitesnake). The idea of this technique is very simple. 1. You take a simple melodic line 2. You play each note twice. Crossing the strings can be challenging, practice slow at first.
