Short Melodic Etude (The Black Widow) + backing track
This etude is inspired by on of the greatest and most original progressive/heavy metal guitar players of this generation - the incomparable Tosin Abasi from the award winning and world renowned progressive metal band "Animals as Leaders."
This technical study works on a percussive hammer-on technique that involves the combination of open strings and fretted notes with wide interval jumps. The rhythmic figure is a revolving 16th note four note grouping and the greatest challenge is to specifically control each note so that both the open strings and the different fretted notes achieve the same dynamic balance in order to produce a flowing and evenly attacked phrase.
The etude also works on left hand strength, coordination and endurance.
