Great idea Dejan - also, nice to see you on electric guitar!
I love this melody you have created...really nice. Also a great exercise for pinky stamina no doubt!
Thanks for the lesson Dejan!
Dejan Im in love with this Melody, going to learn this now ! thanks
wow this sounds to awesome
I really like this.Its a nice workout.Thanks
Great lesson !! Very good workout..
Very nice and helpful lesson! Good work Dejan!
Interesting lesson Dejo, keep rockin! We want more electric lessons!!
Hey Dejan, that´s a very great lesson, thanks so much :-)
How funny, recently Muris told how important it is
to practice a lot with the pinky, since it's the weakest finger. I'm definitely adding this one
to my practicing routine! Great lesson Dejan,
This is great! Awesome job!!
great melody !! good lesson mate
Well im already half complete, got the old metronome out and im nearly there !
I'm glad you like it
Thank you all!
Ver usefull lesson and great melody. Thanks and well done!
Great melody im gonna try thid right now.
Thanks and keep up the good work.
Nice job, man. Great workout and it Sounds great!
Seem's like a very good lesson for my pinky. I'm going to try it right away!
Hey, dudes. Took a little, ehh... long break from this. It's so many new instructors and lessons. Can't wait to learn all those things. This is just truly awesome!!
Very nice Dejan, I have to try this!!
looks like a good warm up!
Beautifull Dejan!! Like it so much!!
What type of guitar is that?
Great! A Fun exercise! Thanks!
Excellent job Dejan! Sounds great, I can't wait to learn it all!
Thank you guys!!
Whatever I do, I try to make it fun and interesting, even when practicing scales
SLASH91 - It's Ibanez EX-360, '89 model, I bought it from a friend in '95 and still sounds great
Great lesson, I will be using this when I get back to practicing. Thanks.
Yeah, I really do need to work on my pinky. Killer lesson, Dejan!
good practice for pinky dejan
this is a great lesson Dejan! i love the exercise and the melody and that is a big help in learning and perfecting technique. P.S. does this remind anyone else of Last Resort by Papa Roach? lol the first riff sounds a little like the intro
Sounds so good - I love the way you have recorded the backing track with the 2nd guitar as well. Thanks Dejan.
this sounds so great and this sort of stuff is one of my weaker areas--im gonna start this one right away!
Haha, I think I'll take this one about 5 seconds at a time. My pinky finger is pathetic.
Thank you all!
Arrival - take as much as you're comfortable with, and gradually increase
that's a beautiful melody!! and great exercise
Great stuff Dejan. Liked your explanations.
This 1 is fun to just sit down and play for as long as possible thanks!
It sounds fantastic - and - it's massively improving my playing. I really couldn't ask for more!
Thank you guys!
I feel great if you have use of it
And really, I cannot ask for more than that
Great , This will wakeup my louzy littlefinger
Great lesson !! Very good workout..
REALLY ONE OF A KIND..IM REALLY HAPPY YOU MADE THIS PIECE..THANKS!!
Thank you guys, you are really kind
maybe im just to noob for this but both my ring and pinky finger have no strenght at all when i try to hammer the 7 it produces no dound at all O.o
If you don't hear the sound you are doing something in a wrong way
Make sure that you are hammering with the top of your fingertip, you should get any sound, if the hammering is too difficult for your current level of playing then try to pick all the notes and when you are confident with that slowly introduce the hammer-on. Let me know if it helps
really helps me with my untrained pinky^^
by the way also very nice guitar
Thank you Sven
Well I have the guitar for about 15 years now
:| it dosnt sound like u
useing any special effect ?
graet melody btw
well, you don't have to sound like me, but more like yourself
I recorded it through GuitarRig2, some distortion, reverb and delay, nothing else
ok i almost have half of those things (distortion reverb)
Don't worry about the sound, just concentrate on clear and accurate playing
I've found this piece to be an excellent exercise! After a few hours of practicing it I can already notice my pinky being stronger. I am having difficulties keeping up with the pace though, as it really should be played. But all with time and practice I hope?
Thank you, I'm glad it helps
Just take care on timing, no matter at what speed you play, and it will improve over time for sure
Woho! I'm gonna practice this every day! I have no control over my pinky
Thanks a lot, Dejan
You're welcome, let me know if you need anything
Really nice exercise! =) It's nice to see an exercise that actually sounds nice too!
I know that exercises are often boring, I'm glad this one is not
I joined because of this!! im a newbie guitar player and i love this riff!! Thanks!
I feel honored, thank you for the compliment
Hey Dejan!!!Great lesson...Very creative...
Dejan: I've been playing this everyday for almost 2 months now and I've improved massively! I now have great stamina in my little finger and I'm playing scales at 40 BPM faster than before I started learning this! Yes, 40! This was easily worth my subcription alone.
Thanks so much
You're welcome Moon Boots, it's great to hear that you improved
Keep on rockin'
Very smart and useful!
I was wondering if it's better to leave the finger on the fret and string it's on even though it's not being played, or to pull the finger of a little so that it's not touching the strings, or to pull it off less so that it's not touching the strings but the note stops sounding? For example, when you play 5 on the B string, then 8
It is important here that only one note is played at the moment, and it is completely up to you if you will lift fingers more or less, we all have differently shaped hands and fingers. Another words, you can do it in any way that you find comfortable for you, try to explore different ways and find the best one for you.
Nice! Exactly what I needed!
Glad you like it, enjoy it
This is awesome, you should do more electric lessons!
Thanks, In the matter of fact, I have in plan some electric lessons and just waiting the guitar to be back from servicing
this is sick...how do you do it?
It's simple, just start with slow tempo and practice
FAN-TAS-TIC Lesson !!.
Thanks so much
You're welcome and thanks
sounds great especially when the dual guitar happens
great lesson sounds great especially with the dual guitars
I can't thank you enough for this lesson. it's the best way that i've found to exercise pretty much all the fingers (mostly my formerly un-mastered pinky) and it sounds good too! i also use this to practice my speed-picking and legato.
after doing this for a while my little finger is completely different and very useful
That's great to hear, I'm very glad if the workout helped you
well done mate sounds great and really helpful
This is the first lesson I ever tried at GMCs, and I still play it sometimes.
Really good excercise to build my skills
Thank you for the kind words, it's great to hear that the workout helps
Very cool lesson
And you're welcome
This lesson is very cool, but I don't think is a "level 2" one! :\
I agree with you that is not "level 2" lesson to play at full speed, but this lesson can be practiced at slower speeds. So practically all levels may apply here
Beautiful melody and very helpful workout! I start to feel tired with my pinky near the end, good sight:)
Thanks, very kind of you
It is a good sign, just be careful not to over-do it
Your tone is killer.
Wow, very calming backing track and melody. I will definitely need this exercise for my pinky, so I can play legato more easily ! You rock, Dejan !
That's very nice to hear, thanks
Hi again, Dejan ! I'm practising this lesson, and was wondering whether it would be possible to play hammer-ons on all the places possible to grow more strength in my fingers ? For example, in the beginning :
B -5---------------------- ...
Hopefully the tabs come out fine... Do you think this is appropriate ?
As long as it sounds right, you can play it any way you want it
Your way puts more pressure on little finger, three hammer-ons in a row, and it's only a matter if the finger can take it
I recommend to to first practice it as it is, and then to explore your creativity and find your own way
this sounds cool...but i am picking all the notes....having that one hammeron is so difficult i just break the rythm and start hammering some other notes.....I have to play it at like 40 bpm to get it right..but cool lesson..
You can play it without hammer-ons if you wish but the best results for little finger will be achieved with them. It doesn't matter how fast you play, it is only important that it is clean and accurate
Grate lesson Dejan.My little finger gets better every day.Thanks
That's great to hear, you're welcome and thanks
Nice exercise, Dejan. I totally missed it because it's a level 2. I wanted more pinky and hand synch lessons and was reading in comments on another lesson about this one. It's very good. Thanks for creating it!
Thanks, I hope the lesson will help you with pinky
great workout for the hardest finger to master
very very Helpful exercise
This is a lot harder than it looks! If I keep practising, will my fingers get as long yours?!
It may be hard in the begging, but as you increase the strength of the little finger it gets much easier
Thanks all for the comments
xcellent workout! thanx for lesson
what scale can i use to solo on it ?
Hi Dejan, been practicing this exercise for a couple of weeks now, im still at 70bpm...gonna go for 100!! thanks for the exercise. is it really necessary to do the exercise twice? at 2nd time my hand is getting some sort of pain. maybe i don't have some agility yet.
you should have called it littlefinger torture xD
Difficulty 2 ??
Damn ,it's hard !
But it sound's verry nice !
Very good workout. My little finger is slacking.
Little finger is a poor and shy guy that needs a bit more workout than the others. The more You use it, the less trouble it makes
thanks for the lesson! It really improved my picking speed and little finger usage when I play. Keep it up!
Hey Gandhi! Maybe You would like to share Your progress in the REC section ?
