I'm very exciting to break this down; I learned a lot about my own playing through this process and I’m sure you will learn a lot about your playing as well. Hopefully my fans get the feeling that they're going to actually learn how to play like me - something I always wished my heroes did in the past!’
So there are 6 videos in this masterclass. Al starts with a quick introduction video moving onto 'Melodic Phrasing Essentials’ and 'Melodic Phrasing Utilities’. In these, Al gives you all the tools and tips you'll need to work through this course. He then follows up with 'Time Feel' (detailing how he uses rhythmic methods and time feel to generate creative melodic ideas) and 'Melodic Phrasing Motifs' in which he explains his methods behind actually creating his phrases.
Then you will find 10 awesome extended phrases for you to master. Each making great use of the tools and tips detailed in the masterclass section, and each coming with its own slow video and accompanying breakdown video where Al takes you through each lick step by step. We've even included some brief text notes alongside Al's explanations to help you work out what's happening in the phrases.
Inside these phrases you'll find plenty of theory and technical devices such as string skipping, chromatic ornamentation, 3 notes per string shapes, legato workouts, a plethora of cool arpeggio ideas and melodic development/motif building.
Once you've nailed all the extended phrases it's time to put all the material to the test and prove your newly earned skills over the highly jammable backing track. This is your chance to create your own licks and jam out the example phrases in the package. We’ve even included a slow version of the phrase backing track to help you get those tough lines up to speed!
As ever, we have accurately transcribed every note and included the TAB/notation in the download, full backing tracks, audio solos and track notes.
