In this session I focus in on showing you how to use alternate, economy, and sweep picking to blaze all over the fret board using very interesting and exciting pentatonic ideas.

By learning and understanding these concepts you can also apply them to scales, arpeggios, hybrids, and heptatonic ideas shown in CLP 1 and 2. Are those legato runs not working so good when you pick up the acoustic guitar? No problem. If you’re ready to take your solos to the next level this is what you need.

Fans of Shawn Lane, Frank Gambale, John McLaughlin, and Eric Johnson will dig this DVD.

    This is a miraculous DVD. I have been playing guitar for almost 20 years, I have hated/avoided pentatonics for several years because of the limited insight/perspective on them. Since my indoctrination to Jazz and Fusion, needing some pentatonic 'tools', this DVD is paramount among them. I recommend this DVD for anyone who wants a great AND useful perspective on pentatonics. I have only benefited from this! Your hands will throb from the abuse, but still wanting more!! -Fish

    A lot of new stuff in this dvd : open the door to a lot of modern ways to play pentatonics... far away from the "box patterns" we all know too much: very "fresh" and serious. Recommended buying!!!!

  4. 5 out of 5

    I found this DVD to be one of the most comprehensive and insightful on the market. Derryl has the unique gifts of exceptional technique and facility combined with real insight and a clear pedagological delivery. Great for all levels of players.
