Plectrum Pyrotechnics.
"The polytonal and bi-tonal licks I’m going to show you are
directly inspired by listening to pianists such as Chick Corea and Herbie Hancock,
as well as saxophone players like Michael Brecker and Joe Henderson”
Guitar Instructor Jean-Marc Belkadi has, as he's
done with so many guitar approaches, refined
dozens of cool ways to use pentatonics. One thing
he likes his students to explore is stringskipping
lines such as Ex. 12. And, as shown in Ex. 13,
Belkadi often handles string skips
the smart convenient, “hybrid” way — by plucking
the higher string with the picking hand’s middle
finger. Notice that this last example has a hemiolic
three-against-four pick/hammer/pluck downbeats),
and it will retain its jagged unpredictable sound.

Sensei to the Stars:
You don’t have to be an amateur guitarist to need guitar lessons.
Even the pros like a good schoolin’ now and again. And if you’re a
professional guitarist, singer, or actor in the Los Angeles area who’
s fishing around for a guitar teacher, it probably won’t be long
before someone refers you to Jean-Marc Belkadi. Like his mentor,
the late, great guitar genius Ted Greene, Belkadi is quickly
emerging as one of the most in-demand and respected guitar
instructors ....in

The concept of The Composite
Blues Scale for Electric Guitar
with 60 mp3
is to help you play more efficiently
the composite blues scale over
the  dominant, major, minor 7th
and minor 7th b5 chords. This is a
necessary book to improve your
blues vocabulary by understanding
the connection between the
chromaticism and the blues scale
in different music styles:
Jazz, Rock, Funk, Fusion, Pop &
Latin.The eBook is available on  
iTunes
GP’s favorite prodigal son Jude Gold delivered this knowledge.
“The easiest way to add zip to an ascending
three-notes-per-string scale
is to pick only the first note on each string and hammer the two that
follow.The problem with this highly legato strategy, though,
is that it results in a predictable and repetitive sound.
Southern California guitar sensei J
ean Marc Belkadi has noticed
a clever way to liven things up without slowing you down:
Play every third picked note as the first note in an upward
sweep of the pick that drops you back down three strings.
When you finally reach the highest string (bar 2, middle of beat two),
descend back down the scale as shown".
