Like the 3 notes a string section, I wanted to make the string skipping section in a something more usable tutorials section. Since these kind of licks fit perfectly into some simple phrasing or soloing.
Be sure that you mute the strings which you skip and/or not be playing. Or else it will sound muddy.
For 70% of my string skipping licks I use this shape.
Starting on the G string, I use a wide interval between the fingers, and skip to the high E string
Keep the shape from lick 1 in mind, while adding some more notes from different strings.
When you use lick 3 but shift it in different locations on the neck, you’ll get a more themed song idea.
Here the same shape on the string skipping notes, but we now play them with some tapped notes across the neck.
This string skipping lick will have some wider intervals between the fingers.
This idea is the same as lick 6, the only the order of notes has changed.
And now the same wide interval shape but across the high E, G, and A string.
I came up with this idea, when I was looking for some string skipping practice shape, not really a musical thing, but a good exercise.
The same idea, but now we make more shifts across the neck.
Another variation on this, going back and forward.
This is again an none-musical lick, but I lick the sound and it contains some little string skipping.
From the lick, you can make some position shifting on the neck.
When I like about this lick, playing it on two track, played against each other.
This lick is based on some Paul Gilbert string skipping idea from his REH Intense rock video.
