Antigravity

Antigravity is a groundbreaking four-hour investigation that completely demystifies the difficulty of using pure alternate picking to play scales.

Scale playing is a basic exercise on other instruments. But on the guitar, it’s a feat that has historically been mastered only by the elite few. It turns out, there’s good reason for it. In the Antigravity seminar, we discover a new world of upward pickslanting, two-way pickslanting, and swiping.

Across four hours of in-depth investigation, we review dozens of historical clips in slow motion, and take an exhaustive look at the hyperspeed picking techniques of Michael Angelo Batio, Paul Gilbert, Al Di Meola, John McLaughlin, and Vinnie Moore.
