In this cool report, Silvio Gazquez breaks down exactly what you need to study, learn,
and practice if you want to play advanced lead guitar. This is not your average
beginner stuff. We are venturing into deep waters and true advanced lead guitar playing.
Essentially there are 5 core techniques that you must become familiar with. First, speed
picking, which is also known as alternate picking. Secondly, sweep picking, which means
you are quite literally sweeping across the strings with your pick, which uses economy
of motion. This applies to both scales and arpeggios. Third, legato technique, which
for all intents and purposes means you’re using hammerons and pulloffs. Fourth , tapping,
and fifth, blending these other techniques together into complex licks.
