-- International guitar guru Tom Hess, has revealed his methods for playing with faster guitar speed with basic guitar licks in his online resource.
In his resource, Hess discusses why most guitar players are unable to play high quality guitar solos due to creative limitations in their musical approach.
Hess says, "I usually hear complaints from guitarists about how their fast guitar solos don't sound as clean as they want. There are tons of reasons why this could happen, but there are answers to help you solve all of those problems as well. In general, these are the problems I see in the lead guitar licks of many players: they make mistakes when trying to play fast due to not being able to cleanly transition from one string to the next during position shifts."
He goes on to discuss his answers to this problem:
"Fortunately, smoothing out these transitions is not an impossible task. You can do this without much of a struggle at all using simple 2 string guitar exercises that anyone of any level can start practicing right away. These exercises sound good, are easy to play and have massive benefits for the speed and cleanliness of your guitar playing."
This is surely good news for guitarists who aren't yet advanced or just want a much more accessible practice approach for gaining faster speed.
