Like you all, we’re huge fans of Dave Davidson from Revocation’s Thrash Course, hosted by Guitar World. One of the things I love about Dave’s instructional method is the way that he shows how simple music is – that by altering one note in a pattern, you can easily achieve the kind of altered and varied sound that so many lead guitar players in metal seek. In this clip, Dave dives a bit more in-depth on a few sweep/tap-hybrid ideas that can help shake up the way that you play your arpeggios. I’m particularly partial to Dave’s use of the Lydian-sound in his lead playing, and lucky for you, he goes over one way to achieve it with this technique!
It’s not the first time that Dave’s tapped that. Arpeggio, I mean. Lol. Revocation are currently on what has been dubbed a highly “fappable” US tour with The Contortionist, Fallujah, and Toothgrinder. Get dates for that here.
