JTC - Hybrid Masterclass Boxset - Martin Miller
Likely the most in-depth and powerful hybrid picking course ever made, Martin Miller returns to walk you step-by-step through the absolute basics all the way to complete expressive freedom using his approach to hybrid picking! As this is a full course leading you from A to Z, it's strongly advised that you purchase the full box set so that you can work through the course in order (and benefit from a discounted price, too!). Each volume is also available individually if you would like to purchase in stages, but in order for the course to make sense, we recommend starting at Vol.1 and then working your way through to Vol.2, then Vol.3!
Martin Says 'I'm convinced that my hybrid picking masterclass is one of THE most in depth out there on the subject. You will get plenty of information whether you're a beginner or a seasoned pro!
Over 3 volumes I'm going to be teaching you how I approach and utilise this technique in my own playing. We're going to have a look at the tonal and technical possibilities it has to offer, and how we practise those to put them in a musical context.
In volume one we'll be discussing the fundamentals of this technique in regards to single notes or lead playing. This volume comes with a huge PDF breakdown covering many topics from hand position and nails to tone etc. There's also a load of preliminary exercises demonstrated fast and slow to familiarise yourself with the technique.
Now, Volume 2 is all about patterns and exercises. We're going to be looking at how to incorporate hybrid picking into scale playing and pentatonic oriented playing. For that purpose I have created a huge amount of examples that provide many, many ideas for your lead playing that are going to boost your chops!
Volume 3 takes off where volume 2 ended; We're going to be looking at how to incorporate hybrid picking into arpeggio based playing. Now, once you feel that you have a good grasp on these patterns and exercises we'll be turning them into musical ideas by the way of a series of different licks. We'll be rounding things off with two solo examples that I've improvised, showing you how these things can be applied in a real life musical situation.
Each volume is available on it's own but I strongly advise you to check out [this] box set, as this is a full course leading you from A to Z and I suggest you work your way all the way through it.'
As you progress through each of the three in depth masterclass PDFs you will find a plethora of complete hybrid picking exercises fully tabbed out, with video/audio for every exercise (played fast and slow to help you break down and learn the techniques). Come the end of the course you will be perfectly prepared to tackle Martin's final 2 full solos, which you can practise over the 2 included back tracks. After this, it's time for you to step out into the spotlight by jamming over the 2 extended jamtracks, where you can put everything into practise by using the hybrid picking ideas from this complete course in your own solos!
