Apocalyptic Arpeggios

Be sure to check out Derryl's new Chops from Hell instructional release "Visions & Dreams - Part I".

This is an excerpt from my tune "Visions and Dreams".

Technically I am using a legato approach which requires you to stretch your hand. Also take note of the liberal use of hammer-ons. For those of you that like the Holdsworth style this lick is right up your alley.

Harmonically I am using a G flat Lydian Dominant arpeggio sequence from the Db melodic minor scale to play through this set of changes. Please come visit me at my site. There you can check out soundclips of my CD. If you are interested in getting my Guitar Technique Book, Video, and CD just email me at"
