Learn How To Play Amin 3 Octave Shred Lick With Chris Zoupa

March 24, 2015

When I was a wee tot in high school I was trying to find a way to shred triplets and just had a bad time.

I made up this exercise/lick for myself and students who were beginning alternate picking and speed building.

This lick uses the "A" minor/Aeolian scale (see diagram below).

As you can see it's pretty much the same idea over 3 octaves and only uses 2 three fingered shapes throughout the whole exercise. It's great for shredding across the fretboard and helps you guys avoid shredding in small boxes.

Enjoy the lick/exercise guys!
