Week 1 & 2 – Dorian Sounds
This is a sound you hear in rock and metal all the time, from Van Halen to Santana. All these ideas in this chapter and centered around it, the Minor Pentatonic and Blues scales. This chapter Includes legato runs, horizontal blues scale ideas, 3 string sweep picking, a group of 6 sequence for alternate picking and more!
