The following examples are suggestions that may seem random. They are all going in the direction of your goal to be a great guitar player. Mixing things up and make it fresh.
BEFORE YOU SKIP OVER THIS, ASK YOURSELF HOW OFTEN YOU USE IT.
Can u play the third upbeat on a sixteen note sequence easily? If you want to shred, get a metronome. If you wanna groove, get a metronome. It is the common language of all instruments!!
There are millions of strict technique material out there.
- Paul Gilbert has great ones.
- Steve Vai for shredders.
- Carl Verheyen and Mike Landau for studio guitar minded cats. These guys have been on tons of records from heavy to pop.
DEVELOP YOUR OWN STYLE
This is a big mystery. But not as out of your league as you may think EVERYONE is an amalgamation of what they like to listen to. The key is honing in on what you specifically like (a lick. A riff a chord) and nail It eventually depending on how much you practice then add it in your own playing until it is effortless. Along to way you might find yourself slightly personalize a part. Don’t run from that. But know the original part first.
Planning is key. Who do I want to be as a player? Ia guy who shreds. A guy who can play subtle lines. I guy that can read? A guy that can play great finger style Take your strength and interest into making yourself employable.
Having said that. No matter how great of a guitar player you may be. The producer has a bigger ego than you. Being flexible. Taking direction well is more important than your chops. Remember it’s not about you.
