I am doing well, thank you! I have a solo completed, I just haven't had the time to record it. I have been in the studio rehearsing with a new band I am most likely going to be working with as well. I should have time to record my take some time tomorrow after I get home.

Sounds good! I am looking forward to hear your take!!!

My brain started to quit toward the end, haha. I haven't slept in a couple days and I probably should. Anyway, here is my take, I hope you enjoy it!

Very nice take!
And cool guitar! Is it Ibanez? smile.gif
I like your ideas very melodic and creative! You timing was a little bit off and you ran out of phrases after a few times through! Those are not hard things to fix!
Here is a very good exercise to help you with timing and boos up your technique!
The trick is to practice it very very slow using a click! It will take time but you will be impressed with results!

Thanks! My timing is not the best. Thank you for working with me on this one! I have Guitar Pro 6, so you do not have to go through the process of typing everything out here on the forum if you do not want to, since i can download all of it.

I love this exercise! The melodies are awesome! I have a lot more free time so I will work on this exercise and post my take this week.

Yes, the guitar is an Ibanez AFS75T. I bought it when I was going to college in Alaska.

I am glad you like the exercise! Here is the trick! When you are practicing it set the metronome at a very slow tempo (90 BPM) and play one note per click! You will see a very huge progress in just a few weeks!

I am sorry it took so long. I really wanted to do my best. I can re-record it if necessary.

Thanks, Alex!

Maybe the embed option is acting weird?

There is a direct link to the video. Thanks Alex!

It's sounds like your timing is very good, but it's hard to tell because I can't hear the click! Good job tho! I would suggest you to start doing this exercise when you are warming up! Just do it daily and you will be impressed with results!
I will post a new assignment for you in a few hours! smile.gif

Thanks! When I am feeling better(I caught the flu thanks to my father), I will be sure to post this again with the metronome in the background! This exercise really helped me with my timing.

I hope you feel better soon!
Here is a new exercise! It's a very good one for you left hand! Make sure to practice it at a slow tempo using a metronome! If you feel any pain stop immediately and let me know!
Right hand shouldn't be involved so left hand legato technique only! Here is the tab!

I do in fact, have a question.

How should I approach in Bar 3? My middle and ring finger cannot make the stretch from the 3rd to 5th fret. For now, I am tapping the 7th fret with my picking-hand, and then resuming the lick with my fretting-hand pinky. Can you let me know what you would advise?

Thanks!

Brandon

I can suggest to loop this part and play it at a very slow tempo! Some parts might take time and the best way to master those is to play at a very slow tempo!

I am practicing at 30 BPM. My problem is that I don't have the physical capability to reach. Is there an exercise or something I can try that will make my fingers stretch further?

Thanks!
