Shane Lane Concepts

Hi, I am Sebastian Salinas from Argentina, and thanks for checking out my first column. I've played electric guitar for 6 years and also have studied classical guitar for 5 years. My main influences are: Shawn Lane, Yngwie Malmsteen, Paul Gilbert, John Petrucci, Al DiMeola, Alan Holdsworth, Sir Jason Becker, Michael Angelo, Rusty Cooley, Joe Stump, George Bellas, Michael Romeo...and many more incredible players. I wanna show some licks I've written, the first exercise is a sextuplet run in E minor with rhythmic displacement in the style of the late great monster player from Memphis Shawn Lane. It sounds a little bit unusual because that rhythmic displacement, played with strict alternate picking. The second exercise is fives also in the style of Shawn Lane, but this time using E harmonic minor thats gives it an Yngwie flavour, and remember also strict alternate picking. Well, thanks again and remember to play slowly first with your metronome and then increase speed. Please contact me to send me your opinions or talk about music and guitar Hopefully I can put more of my licks and lesson here, and see ya in hell... in Chops From Hell.
