Songs to learn to build of hand synchronization

Discussion in 'General Instruction [BG]' started by Journey55, Nov 11, 2012.

  1. I'm looking for songs that have a lot of notes incorporated quickly so I can practice synchronize my fretting and picking hand. I usually practice scales like it but I prefer playing to songs , so any songs you guys know would help. Thanks!
  2. The best way to coordinate is to start off in slow motion to make sure you get every note and the timing perfect. Then you will find it rather easy to speed up. As for songs, try Blister in the Sun - that's kind of fun to play. If younwant something more challenging try Pictures of Home by Deep Purple.
  3. That's what I've been doing I was just hoping to get some songs to do that to since I think its easier than just playing scales, Pictures of Home is kind of like what I was looking for but more like the bass solo, not the rest of the song

    Cult of personality by living color...the main riff is cool, the guitar solo has some cool diad and chord work, and the 48 note birrage of triplets twice in the song is ultra cool to play at the brisk pace of the song...string skipping, open strings, fingered notes...its got em all. They have a pretty decent bass tab of it on songster on the net...good luck

    After u master that move on to rush YYZ....this should keep u busy for awhile...
  6. +1 Cult of Personality...very cool riff and great song.

    I suggest a few lines by Incognito (e.g. Colibri) and almost anything by Gary Willis and Rocco Prestia. That'll keep you busy for a long time.

    What Is Hip. Either Tower of Powers' version or Gov't Mules' version.
