5 tips to maximize your electric guitar playing // Guitar Lesson

In this video, Bradford illustrates (and demonstrates) five tips you can put into practice today to take your electric guitar playing to the next level. We also play through a full song and use all 5 tips to show you how to put them into practice.

Here are the 5 tips:

01:08 – Tip 1. Don’t play big chords until you have to. Save them for the biggest part of the song.

01:55 – Tip 2. Don’t strum your electric guitar like an acoustic guitar.

02:24 – Tip 3. Use alternate chord voicings.

03:07 – Tip 4. Sit out. You don’t have to play during every part of the song. The notes you don’t play are just as important as the ones you do.

04:14 – Tip 5. Use single note lead lines.

06:24 – Song play through featuring all 5 playing tips

Gear Bradford is using in this video:
Guitar: Duesenberg Starplayer TV
Amp: Kemper Profiling Amplifier
Pedals: Origin Effects Cali76 (compressor), Analogman King of Tone (overdrive), Strymon Timeline, Strymon Big Sky

We ran the Kemper straight into a Universal Audio Apollo Twin Duo to record it.


Our vision is that every church in the world would experience worship that is both excellent and authentic. We are here to help you make that happen.
