In this video, Bradford illustrates (and demonstrates) five tips you can put into practice today to take your electric guitar playing to the next level. We also play through a full song and use all 5 tips to show you how to put them into practice.
Here are the 5 tips:
01:08 – Tip 1. Don’t play big chords until you have to. Save them for the biggest part of the song.
01:55 – Tip 2. Don’t strum your electric guitar like an acoustic guitar.
02:24 – Tip 3. Use alternate chord voicings.
03:07 – Tip 4. Sit out. You don’t have to play during every part of the song. The notes you don’t play are just as important as the ones you do.
04:14 – Tip 5. Use single note lead lines.
06:24 – Song play through featuring all 5 playing tips
