As with all great guitarists, Stevie Ray Vaughan’s rhythm playing was as strong as his leads. Stevie Ray Vaughan excelled at a style of shuffle playing that has its roots in earlier players, yet he was able to turn it into a personal trademark.
This riff is based off of a twelve bar blues in G. The chords being outlined are G7, C7, and D7, with a hard shuffle feel. Some of the other techniques being used are hammer-ons, pull-offs, slides, bends, and position shifts. When you listen to a rhythm section playing a medium shuffle, it’s quite common to hear the bass playing a walking line (moving quarter notes) while the guitar strums chords on the upbeats CLICK HERE FOR THE PAGE TO THE LESSON.
In this tapping arpeggio exercise I want to cover share a trick based around a concept that will add some sophistication to your improvisations (while also being sure to turn heads with its attention-grabbing coolness!): three octave major and minor 7th arpeggios.

For this awesome shred style lesson from John Huldt, we cover a ton of Yngwie Malmsteen type techniques that every guitarist would want to learn, sweep picking, two finger tapping, double picking, string skipping, tapping diminished runs, and symmetrical patterns as well.

One of the biggest hurdles many guitarists face early in their development is being able to connect chords, scales and arpeggios in their playing without having to jump all over the fretboard between shapes.
Always having a scale under your fingers for every chord shape you use is a great way to learn the fretboard, providing you with soloing material at the same time. This exercise will help get you into this way of thinking with seven diatonic chords on both the 6th and 5th strings, as well as the seven scale shapes that fall under each chord. This will be an amazing tool to help you learn many aspects of the guitar, and improve your soloing.
