Crazy 8's - 8 note pattern string skipping

Hey Folks, This weeks lesson is an 8 note pattern that I've applied to a little jingle I wrote. It incorporates string skipping and some big shifts. It's tricky, but it's the kind of thing that sounds cool slow and fast. Once you get the pattern down you can apply it all over the place and since it's 8 notes it fits into 4/4 time really nicely! I hope you like it.

A min / G# dim7 sweep picking lick

This is a little 3 string sweep picking exercise I wrote using A min and G#dim7 arpeggios. Kind of gives a harmonic minor vibe in the style of Yngwie Malmsteen. Practice slow and build up speed and accuracy.
