About this lesson

This lesson introduces Paul Gilbert's style of lead playing to your student. The licks demonstrate Paul's use of alternate picking, legato, arpeggios and phrasing. This is a very advanced lesson so only give this to your student if you know they will be prepared for it. If the student enjoys this style of playing, you can give them one of Paul's songs to continue their development.

This lesson will teach your student:

  • How to use fast alternate picking during scale runs
  • Combine picking and legato for complicated patterns
  • Wide stretching, string skipping arpeggios

Combine this lesson with exercises to help the student develop the skills necessary to play the licks.
