How do guitar masters achieve their lightning fast guitar solos that span the entire fretboard? Arpeggios, the true secret to shredding guitar, is revealed and demystified in this valuable book/CD method. Author Kevin Dillard examines the art of behind playing arpeggios ("broken chords" in which each note is played separately), and analyzes the styles of shred-virtuosos such as John Petrucci, Randy Rhoads, Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal, Paul Gilbert, and many others. In this book, you will learn the essential techniques for playing arpeggios while soloing, including sweep picking, string skipping, hammer-ons, pull-offs, and two-handed tapping. Dillard also teaches how to visualize patterns on the fretboard so you can play arpeggios with ease and precision. Ideal for intermediate to advanced guitarists, this method will enhance your speed, fluidity, and fretboard knowledge, and help you develop your own personalized arpeggio style.
