NICE!!! Slow and steady wins the race. This is one of the 'Sleeping Policeman" licks that sounds like it should be played fast when in fact it's really a study in precision. Push it to far and it falls apart. The good news is that the speed will come with repetition. In the demo vid, I'm playing it at full tilt. That's as fast as I can play it without it just turning to mush and it's still not that fast. Pushing the precision to meet the speed is the crucible. It's the fire in which we burn!!!
Let's Debrief!!
MEDALS OF HONOR

*TRAVERSE: The first thing I'm looking for on Mission 5 is STRING TRAVERSE. If you don't do smooth string traverse, this just falls apart. That's why I have it looping on a traverse point. To make your fingers constantly go back and forth traversing strings. Once you slowed down a pinch, your traverse is spot on!![/size]
*PACE:It's tempting to rush or lag the bits that feel easier, say notes on one string, then change pace during the tricky bit, say during traverse, not so here! Nice and smooth the way I like it!!

*ARTICULATION: The last box I need to have you tick is pick articulation. if your articulation is poor, yet again, lick falls to crud. Good news is that all of your time spent in quick licks is paying off!! You have very fine articulation here. Score![size=2]



LEVELED UP!!!

It's great to see you jumping in to BOOTCAMP!! It's a different challenge than Quick Licks but you are up for it!!!

Thanks buddy, now I finally understand that speed is not a prerequisite for boot camp and precision is the key.

Cheers buddy

Drill 6 take 1 up for scrutiny Sarge. Sorry about video quality, I forgot some of the settings I used on my old computer and I also forgot to use the noise gate on the Helix.

Better!!! You got the lick Down Soldier!!! I want you to be the best you can so I went back and reviewed this many times. Your playing drifts from the metronome over time. It's a tricky lick so i can imagine it's hard to keep listening to clicks and pegging it to pick strikes. I think you may just need to slow down a pinch. I appreciate you trying to push yourself Soldier!! I Encourage it! One should push past where they can play, every time. It just doesn't always work for Combat Mission Videos.

I hate to send you back to the front Soldier! I just can't let this slide with that much drift from the click. As always, no speed requirements. Back off the speed just a pinch and I think you will badge up and be on to your next Mission!!

Thanks Sarge,

I did hear myself drifting BUT only when I played the video back and I was outta time to do another one so I posted for critique.

Gotta earn it buddy and if that means going back to the pit then that's what has to be done cool.gif

Cheers

Phil

UPDATE: Take 3 up for scrutiny Sarge. Make me earn it buddy wink.gif For some reason YT messed with the vid/audio sync.

BINGO!!! No that's what I'm talking about! Let's Debrief!!
MEDALS OF HONOR

ALT PICKING: Your doing great on your Alternate Picking here. It's consistent and that's what I'm looking for. Nice!!

MUTE: Very solid work on the palm mute. Also critical. If you can't mute, you will get string noise. Not a problem here!!!

SYNCH: Right/Left hand synch is the core of this drill. If your synch is off, the entire thing will fall apart. Again, not a problem here! Your synch is spot on!
After a couple of near misses, you got this Soldier!!!! You are ready for what lies in wait!! Keep your weapons loaded!!
You just..
LEVELED UP!!!!
