I changed bar 13 a bit : its now, e d c b g# b a b , so it matches the pattern on the g and d string ^^


Also because of the sweep in bar 20, the pick direction changes in bar 21 to up down up down etc thats quite interesting for practice reasons
because now the reoccurring descending harmonic minor run plus the following e string lick is played in "reverse alternate picking" . xD

That is very cool! Keep me posted! I will create a new assignment for you in a couple of days!
I would like to hear you play this etude! Sounds like a fun piece to learn!

Ok here is the Neo-Classical Part in a slow tempo.

Attached File  NEO_RECO.WAV ( 3.17MB ) Number of downloads: 19


I am able to play it full speed but especially the run on the e-string and the following sweep-arpeggio and pedal tone lick is still a bit sketchy.
Also this way I hope you can analyze some more weak points.

The extended sweep from the beginning is quite a challenge and Im working on it.

I made an entry for the Lazy Rock Collab btw, let me know how you like it.


Cheers Lixxx



PS: I didnt forget the practice session report. Im moving in a new flat and Im quite busy schlepping boxes and getting the new flat tidied-up.
Also I might have a buyer for my Amp, so hopefully you will enjoy some fresh licks, jams, and rec's once I have my recording tool ^^ .

Sounds very nice! Too much flanger tho smile.gif
I have been playing etudes for a long time and here is a couple of suggestions that might help!
1) I think you should slow down even more some of the notes weren't too clear and sometimes it sounds like you are struggling to get it up to speed!
2) Practice using a clean sound! This is a trick when you are learning etudes or any fast licks! If you can play it on clean you can play it with distortion! You will double your progress with a clean tone! (No effects at all!)

I am glad to hear that some new upgrades are coming! Very excited to hear your new recordings!

Alright Im back and all set xD

I worked on scales and made a little plan on how to practice the scales.

1. I play the modal madness ex. in different keys ( I usually pick one per session and I make notes which key I alrdy did )
2. I play the Scale on each string individually and make little exercises with them ( 3notes one back 3 notes etc.)
3. I make runs that incorporate string pairs or trios and work them down and up the neck in key.
4. I learn the chords for each mode ( with colored tones )
5. I try to record a little progression and jam over it.

Im still trying to figure out how to play modes and how to make a progression that indicates them.

Oh and for transcribing I started to work on the canon in d-major from perchelbel which I transcribed from the piano notes to play on acoustic guitar. Unfortunately on the first try my notation program collapsed and I lost my 4 hours of work. But I will do it again and then you can check it out. This rly helped me to read notation especially the F clef.

I also got an assignment to record a track for a local hip hop artist. Not exactly my kind of music but its good to do some work. Its just a very simple tune that we will record on Monday. I will show you the results.

Ok thats all cheers happy.gif Lixxx

PS: I cant record atm because I had to sell my Jm4 to get money for the br-800.

Perfect! I like you plan! It looks good! Also it's very cool that you got a chance to work with a hip hop artist it will get you into new styles! I use to do some work with Timbaland and I have learned so much!

Since I almost have the money for my recording device, I wanted to go into mods maybe you can send me in the right direction regarding on how to be modal or point out specific modes through chords or solo. Other than that Im doing fine. Ive been practicing the Fantasie Impromptu a while back and I think my coordination has improved as Im more able to play it now xD.

Im rly looking forward to the whole writing process and I did a little jam which I will record ones able. ( its messin round with G-Penta and the open strings)

On Wednesday I will get a chance to listen to the recording I did with that hip hop artist. He completely changed the whole arrangement when we got to the studio so we had to improvise and come up with something new. Was a good experience tho.

Through that I now have the chance to accompany a professional Hip Hop artist for a concert in June . will see where thats going xD

Greetings and Cheers

I do ofc. String Skipping is quite a challenge but it works good.

this rly is an unusual pattern sequence but thats good, because it is a nice difference from the usual up and down run patterns
