Ok, here's my attempt at task 6.
I'm experimenting with some of those Tortex Pitch Black 1.14mm picks.
So far, i'm really liking the pointy tip, but I was little surprised by how small they are.
I think I can get used to it though. It seems it's the bigger picks that I usually have
trouble getting comfortable with. (like the regular Tortex)



Hey this is excellent ! The chord vibrato is really, really good and your timing is pretty much on it throughout smile.gif

Great work !

I'm really looking forward to trying those picks.. it's the exact size in mm that I use, but smaller with the tip. In fact, they look exactly like the manually sharpened ones that I make from my regular Tortex picks smile.gif I really do think that I prefer smaller picks.

Nice work, Alex - you did a good job of seperating those chord notes. You could benefit from hitting some of the chords with a little more attitude, just a bit harder.. it's good that you have a very relaxed picking hand but don't be afraid of digging in to get some attitide too smile.gif

Hey Alex, this one has more attitude ! Try to avoid rushing as the beginning arpeggios sound a little bit in front of the beat.

Also try to make your picking more accurate, like the lick at 0:39. Try to get all the notes to sound / ring out smile.gif

Definitely an improvement !
