Guitar Techniques Reveal Chris Broderick
When he played with electric guitar, his favourite music genre is metal, and at that time all of his friends want to be like Eddie Van Halen. He heard one of the songs from Eddie using the tapping and then he thought that Eddie uses both hands to produce tones on his guitar.
After that game, he heard Yngwie, and she was like getting something up he says “Everything is Yngwie!” then he learned all the songs that he could and Yngwie songs from guitarists such as Jason Becker and Marty Friedman, Greg Howe. He also admires Scott Mishoe, which uses the technique of slapping and popping, and he adopted into little game.

He acknowledged that don’t have the handle remains in the style of play because the more he does know something you don’t know then it is getting worse, so need to learn different things such as different techniques, new style, from other guitarists.
He tells when aged between 15 to 20 years, when he has been practicing with the scale, Arpeggios, have been doing this, doing that, he realized no one should he coached again. Then he realized there are still many who have not bahwaa he should know. Finally he comes to a conclusion that he should do whatever is most interesting to her interest.
“Hopefully, you’ll zigzag your way through the patterns of everything you want to learn. Eventually, you’ll come full circle. ”

Then exercise as what was being now? He started the exercise, focusing on techniques and legato slur with different variations. Then he tried to apply it in scale.

Because if you think are speed, then you will meet failure. “Trust me, I know,” he said.
Here he explains how pick-up techniques hand sweep-picking.
“I think of it the US drawing a straight line from point A to point B, dragging the pick across the strings on an even plane. If it’s a small movement within one octave, I recommend a little bit of “wrist contraction,” meaning you should bend slightly at the wrist as you go across the strings. With larger sweeps across multiple octaves, I recommend keeping the wrist steady, and pulling or pushing the whole arm at once across all of the strings.
The range of the wrist is actually pretty limited, so, for all of the tight/fast picking, I rock it back and forth, without moving my hand out of place. When I need to use a larger picking movement, I’ll move the entire arm so I can change the position of the pick to suit the movement across the strings. ”
Presumably that’s the secret behind the technique of guitar Chris Broderick
