You know those crazy fast legato licks that Joe Satriani is always playing? Well here’s a great lesson from David Taub teaching you how to do that.
In this lesson, he uses G major for the example, however you can of course use these scale patterns in any key you want. The key is to relate to them in terms of patterns, not in terms of absolute fret locations. With a pattern based approach, you can easily shift things elsewhere on the fretboard.
To get that legato sound, you need to use hammer ons and pull offs, with only a little bit of picking thrown in. The tone you set on your amp is also important.
Ok, crank up your amp and checkout the lesson!
