I really like the Ram Jam version, then I was asked to teach a student this one. It's pretty cool, and fast in places, check out the funky and heavy riff halfway through that uses mainly the 6th string.
Quick power chord changes mean you have to work on being comfortable with the shape. Start slooooowwww.
Quick arrangement of this mundo classic tune.
It is a good work out for you finger picking and chord changes.
You will have to make compromises on chord change vs picking pattern as you switch between chords and sections. I know that I do!
Using the 3 notes per string concept to create a scale shape, within which you pick out the arpeggio for each starting interval.
This shape is starting from the first note in the scale and is therefore position 1.
These multi-octave arpeggios are great for testing your dexterity, understanding of the fretboard. The aim is to play the shape anywhere on the fretboard.
3 notes per string shapes allow you to find chords, melodic runs, arpeggios and other patterns, plus really fast solos!.
Scale shapes helpful for when you are sight reading.
Shapes based upon the CAGED system.
