hey, I was going to post these on guitartricks.com, but they apparently want me to upgrade my account and pay for it now. Oh well, I dont know those people and this is my home, so I’ll share with you all.
The first tab is just a scale I came across screwing around at the 12th fret. (yes, it’s already been tabbed here once before).
That’s what I like to call my "Universal Soloing Scale." I have only found a few songs that this scale doesn’t go well with. You can play it slow and bluesy or blistering fast and it will always sound good.
The next one is actually two scales slapped together, and I don’t really remember what they are but everything but the high e string is a phrygian scale and I think that the part with the high e is a mixolydian (?). Anyways… it’s in the key of: A……
I think that this one is probably my favorite because it isnt as universal as the first scale and it’s kind of egyptian. My favorite way to play this scale is by playing it normally all the way down to fret 12 and then back up like this: …..(oh, and it’s mostly hammer ons and pull offs).
Ã‚ Ã‚ h Ã‚ p Ã‚ p h Ã‚ p p h p Ã‚ h h p Ã‚ h p Ã‚ p Ã‚ h Ã‚ p p p h p p h p p p
….and yes, there is a reason for ending on 4 right here Ã‚ Ã‚ ^. It’s because then there is my third tab, a scale that can be moved around and played on any fret containing an inlay. Here that is:
h hh h h h h Ã‚ h h p h h p h h p h h Ã‚ p p p p h h hp h p Ã‚ h
I think that one is my favorite one out of all of these. I figured that one out while learning the final fantasy arpeggios. The really cool thing about all of these is you can mix them up and make an intire song out of them. I’ll have to tab out the song I came up with and record it and show it to you guys/gals if interested.
Ok, the last one….I think, (of mine) is a type of Bach/Vai thing that I came up with a while back and it’s been lost forever in the Guitartricks site I’m sure. Just play it as fast as you can because as you’ll find out, the faster you play it, the funner it is.
play that two times then this:
after this on the b string, do the same thing on the high e string (I would imagine that this would work well on a 7 string on the low b and low e strings….I’ll have to try it sometime when I get around a seven string). Play this twice as well, then go back to part one…..tthhheeeeeeenn:
I have some more I could show you peoples if interested. The rest of them aren’t mine, but they are Buckethead etc. etc. They’re just cool riffs or excersizes things that could help you on your guitar-ing journey. Thanks for looking…..R.J.
