A great practical lesson on Raking technique - everything is done through real-world examples. It’s a great way to incorporate what you learned in The Grip and Muting.
If you learn the notes to a Jimi Hendrix or Stevie Ray Vaughan solo but your sound is still “weak,” it’s probably because you’re not playing enough strings. Notice I didn’t say “enough notes.” There’s a big difference. That difference is caused by a technique called raking.
Raking is when you play multiple strings but only allow several to actually ring out. The rest are muted and the sound they produce is a fat “click.” The extra “clicks” from the muted strings add a thickness to your sound that cannot be achieved any other way. Raking is a 70 minute lesson that teaches you how to incorporate the raking technique into your playing.
