Week 3 & 4 – Phrygian Segment


STELAR ShadedYou hear these cool dark sounds from classic rock to modern metal. Check out Uli Roth’s “Sails of Charon” or Ritchie Blackmore’s Snake Charmer Scale on “Stargazer“. Check out Yngwie here showing E Phrygian, he’s unbelievable.

In the Full Shred video there are lessons to build your alternate picking speed and sweep picking, but don’t forget about Expression and the Essential Classic licks. Also explore other exotic scales including the Japanese Pentatonic and diminished arpeggios.
