Alan Holdsworth Style Jazz Scale Guitar Lesson
In tribute to the death of the guitar legend Allan Holdsworth we have created some guitar exercises based around some of the jazz scales and chords Allan would play. Notice that most are 4 notes per string and some are symetrical scales, allowing you to play much faster without having to remember an intricate scale pattern. First try them slowly going up. Once your comfortable with that try coming back down. Now mix the scale up, skipping strings and notes where possible. Finally as Allan did, try creating melodys from these scales to come up with your own style of guitar playing or songs.
RIP Allan Holdsworth – 6 August 1946 to 16th April 2017.
