I went to Russia last year and Romania this year so ,icks still traveling. The fingerings at the top of the transcriptions are for the fretting hand. Exercise 3 begins with an Am7 arpeggio, which is perfect to use with pentatonic scales. When you start seeing the guitar neck as a collection of melodic notes rather than box patterns, the number of possibilities is limitless, so try to look at the bigger picture and see if it’ll help something familiar sound new again.

For this first part, I also asked Brett to demonstrate his technical approach in a solo: In these bars you can see how Brett controls the open strings especially on the first frets. Trying to incorporate fingers into your playing is something that needs time and constant work, and one of the main problems to solve is the articulation of ring and little fingers.

In later years he expanded his influences to more diverse styles such as Leo Kottke, Rory Gallagher and Joe Walsh his main inspirations for slide guitar and Edward Van Halen. I pretty much play that guitar constantly. Welcome back for the second of a three parter Masterclass with Brett Garsed. In these two bars you can see Brett playing a major triad across the adjacent strings using the slide diagonally. BRETT Take a small idea and see how many different ways you can play it using the same notes but different strings and techniques.

Exercise 5 is a good example of how experimental you can be with various shapes when you combine the min7 arpeggios with regular scale intervals. Rarely happens for me I’m afraid but on the odd occasion that it does, it’s one of the greatest feelings in the world. MARK Ive tried to copy a few of your licks and you have an amazing way of changing directions when your playing legato lines. I always record myself when I’m writing as you never know when a great idea will show up, usually unexpectedly, so make sure you keep a tape running and listen back to it.

After relocating to LA for a period, Brett now has a long list of recordings and collaborations with some of the most important fusion players on the planet, including Frank Gambale, Shawn Lane and T. BRETT Hopefully I can know the music well enough to just be free and think about nothing other than the noises I hear in my head and trying to get them to come out of the amp.

MARK Hi bret, first let me say what a great privalage to interview you for our shredknowledge websiteits a great honor and I’m very exited. I try to remind myself that the only risk is a bruised ego from playing some “off” notes so I try to always enjoy the privilege of playing music and take risks. Now Brett uses 11 to 52 strings with a low action because he figured that would have been better to use heavier strings with a lower action than lighter strings with a higher action.

I have to work pretty hard over the solos sections so I can be free to improvise in odd meters and believe me, if Virgil is around and I have a question, I’m not too shy to ask him for help!

He started with pick and middle finger and soon after he incorporated ring and little finger for an arpeggio type of approach as shown in FIG 5.


As for the other questions, sure, go ahead and ask. BRETT I really like valve amps because of the way they respond dynamically but hopefully I can pull a half decent tone out of anything. The simplest way to think of it is that whatever strings the pick plays, the fingers play the adjacent strings. I only have one finger on the neck most of the time so it allows me to get these wider intervals. Everything is written in 16th notes just to keep things clear.

I could do 10 articles on this concept and still not cover everything, so I’ll leave the rest up to you. MARK Is their anything comming up that your fans can look forwrd to like albums or stuff?

After taking classical guitar lessons for about a year he started to expand his right-hand hybrid picking technique, and soon after he rbett to blend this approach with the legato technique of the fretting hand.
