The extraordinary Silvio Gazquez of the Guitar Control team is the teacher in this tutorial that lasts for just around 2 minutes. It involves an alternate picking lick that not only sounds great, but it’s also one of those lead guitar lessons that may be perfect for improving essential abilities like speed and accuracy. Also, the particular lick in this clip emulates the musical style of the acclaimed guitarist, Paul Gilbert.

This is the latest video in what Silvio calls the Lick of the Day Series and there are plenty more where this came from, all of which can be viewed on You Tube. This time around, Silvio conveys an alternate picking exercise that captures Paul’s signature sound in the form a long picking pattern in the E minor diatonic scale. In fact, this lick entails utilizing a majority of the fretboard, so it may be new territory for some skill levels.

Similar to this one, Silvio’s tutorials typically consist of guitar licks from songs that most folks are familiar with or riffs that are inspired by other notable guitarists. Furthermore, his method is quite simple, as he initially plays the lick at the standard tempo and then one more time at a slowed speed, which makes it much easier to see the moves that he’s making. Also, alternate picking tabs are included for additional assistance.

Paul Gilbert, the subject of this guitar lesson, is actually a singer/songwriter who also happens to be an exceptional guitarist. Besides his ongoing solo career, Mr. Gilbert has been in a few successful bands over the past couple of decades such as Mr. Big and Racer X. Presently; he still plays and also performs for special events and in guest appearances.

So whether it’s a Paul Gilbert lesson that a guitarist is searching for, or basically anything else regarding the six-string, the internet can of course be an awesome learning resource. Especially considering that the company Guitar Control currently has approximately 300 videos on You Tube alone, which are not only informative, they’re absolutely free!
