Well my biggest weakness is probably sweep picking, but I've already found some lessons/exercises for that my self, but palm muting i pretty much suck at when it comes to fast changing (speed/thrash metal stuff), and also when I have to palm mute the high strings, especially the high E tongue.gif

So I'd love some lessons/exercises for palm muting smile.gif

Cheers!

Hi man! Thanks for your reply! I'm checking your videos covering Jonathan's lessons! wink.gif Great choice since those are really cool to work on Vibrato and Bending!

One question.. I assume that you have worked on Ben's Vibrato amazing Series. cool.gif

Hi Tobias! It's great to know that you are working on your Sweep Picking Technique! From my experience there is a secret about it. First you have to be sure that you are doing the correct (circular) movement with your right hand.

Check out my right hand in the first part of this video: http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/solo-guit...weeping-legato/

and then you have to practice it at a comfortable tempo and avoiding any unwanted noise from other strings. Don't worry about speed, it magically appear after some practice every day.

Regarding the palm muting, I have the idea to work on Rhythm Training lessons so I will cover it soon but I will suggest you to learn the song "Master of Puppets" (Ramiro covered it here). That song is one of the best palm muting exercise. wink.gif

Let me know if you need any other help!

Hi Christian! Are you following Juan Cortes Legato Workshop series? There are many good (& musical) exercises there!
Check the first part here: http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Legato-Workshop-1/

When you say hand synchronization.. do you refer to alternate picking technique? or every technique?

Great to know that you are working on Sweep picking! Let me know if you haver some feedback, you can send me a video link by PM to check the progress. wink.gif

Working a lot with AP, but my sweeping sucks really bad biggrin.gif

I will go into ur lesson you showed earlier (neoclassic sweep) and make it from there. Do you have any suggerstion on dim arpeggios? I just learn laszlos lesson on vinnie moore style and I love the dim sweepings! Sounds so great and want to learn more of the shapes of it.
Please let me know if you got some good advice on it smile.gif

If it sounds good, it IS good! And if you think its good then there is gonna be someone else in the world that thinks its good:)Wise words from former instructor Marcus Lavendell.

Hi Nava! The diminished arpeggio or chords appears is the 7th chord when you harmonize the harmonize the harmonic minor scale. It is a symmetric arpeggio build from three minor third intervals. Every note can be considered the root and the positions can be transposed up or down a minor third.

I prepared 3 diminished arpeggios exercises for you (6 strings, Vinnie Moore style and Yngwie Style). Check it!Attached File  Diminished_Arpeggios.gp5 ( 2.44K ) Number of downloads: 45

Yes good point - they day you start thinking you're good that's when you're doomed and will stop evolving.

Personally I'd rather not play instrument if I knew I would remain at the same level all the time. Getting better is the fun part!

Also I must say - Sinisa's playing is a big inspiration to keep practicing wink.gif

Definitely! Great point Sinisa! That's the best thing about music and guitar... the learning process never ends... there is always something new to learn or to work on! smile.gif

This is a very common thing! Most of the rock/metal guitar players enjoy more jamming and learning techniques and licks than studying theory while Fusion & Jazz players enjoy learning harmony & theory a bit more. What aspects of theory do you already know?
