Neoclassic Progression in D Maj
Hi friends, this first exercise for "Chops From Hell", combines different techniques from alternate picking to sweep, legato etc. The chords progression begins with a Dmaj three strings arpeggio, followed by G diminished, B min7 and Amaj, which is the V° of the key of D, so the Amaj legato scale leads straight to the Dmaj arpeggio in order to start again the progression…I have noted some picking indications that I consider very important for having an easier execution of the lick.I think that it is a good exercise especially for the right hand. I hope you enjoy it.
