Assignment #4 - Barenaked Ninja
Before moving to some etude lesson's on alternate picking, legato and such, I thought it would be good to work on the following lesson which contains a lot of vibrato/bending - in conjuction it also contains quite a bit of theory which is something I am going to focus a bit more on from now on. I would like you to work on the following lesson of Muris: http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/solo-guit...r-melodic-solo/
This lesson contains quite a few bends, some wide vibrato as well, and I would like to see from you that these bends/vibrato are executed as perfect as possible (I know you can do it!
In terms of theory assignment, in conjuction with this lesson, I would like you to really go a bit more in depth in the accompanying texts of the video's, which pretty much describe the note choices Muris did when composing this solo.
Also, you will notice that the solo is primarily based on E minor, but the E minor pentatonic, phrygian and harmonic minor are also used. What would be good is to memorize the 3-note per string pattern of the E minor (E Aeolian), E Phrygian and E Harmonic Minor for the 1st position: Index finger starting on the root note of the 6 string.
Finally, I would suggest you to take a close look at this excellent lesson by Can (the above 3 note per string patterns for both the Aeolian as Phrygian are discussed there): http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_fo...showtopic=23160
Let's focus as much as you can on the vibrato/bending in this lesson. Deadline
I would like you to upload a video of this lesson in your own upload thread before next week Saturday 18 Apr if at all possible. Also if you have any questions, just ask them in this thread.
