Marty Friedman - Melodic Control
With Melodic Control your soloing will soar to new heights as Marty Friedman demonstrates and explains how to gain control as a lead player and use your control to develop creative melodic solos. Not only will you learn numerous arpeggios, scales, licks, position shifts, picking techniques, and string bends, but you will also develop melodic control by increasing your awareness of the chord progression and learning to follow each chord change while playing lead. Watch Marty play numerous examples and witness exclusive close-up footage of Marty soloing live over tracks from his solo album "Scenes".
Marty is an excellent teacher, he breaks things down to their basic elements. This video is excellent for beginners and intermediate players. Anyone who thinks this video is boring should put down their guitar and shut up. Yes, this is universal theory, but it is important to all styles and important to overall musicianship. No, this may not share the same experience as watching Becker shred, but it provides knowledge that any aspiring musician should definitely pickup on, if they already haven't.
