This one is a BEAR of a Mission and you dove in head first!!!! Not thrown off by any of it which is honestly amazing given the complexity of this one. Let's Debrief!!
MEDALS OF HONOR

*BIT OF A STRETCH: This one some seriously crazy stretches. Also, it's not just the stretch, it's sticking the landing with the PINKY. You didn't try to use the first 3 fingers which is something to be avoided in these types of licks. Nailed it every time.
*HARMONIC MADNESS: The Harmonic Minor makes an appearance again in this Mission and you didn't even flinch. This shape is very difficult to play. You flow through it with ease and use it quite well in a solo context. You have developed a very good ear for implementing these scales / licks with music which is the whole point of all this. It's great to see and keep it up!!@
*PUTTING ON A CLINIC: Alternate picking, palm muting, string traverse, complex scale shapes, literally every technique in the book, all on display and in top form. You're getting better and better with each mission! Soldier, i am honestly shocked that you are already at 75. At this rate you will crack triple digits in no time. You are just about to unseat the current TOP DAWG in terms of rank as well. You've got a great momentum going solidier, keep going!!!! You have this one well in hand Soldier, you just..LEVELED UP!!!

Hello Sarge!
here is Mission 76!
This is getting more and more laborious. There are many exercises per mission but I will continue to give the maximum!
Cheers!

You are in the tall weeds now Soldier!! Now you know why nobody has ever made it to Mission 100!! Once you get past 75, you are in a really challenging spot. By now you've had some experience is all the techiques required. These next missions will require you do really earn it and will add a few new things in along the way. For now, let's Debrief!
MEDALS OF HONOR :

*OPEN AND CLOSED: The bits that use open string and fretted strings in the same pattern can be a challenge to keep clean since the left hand can't do the muting. This requires a very good right hand muting technique. It's why I include this type of lick. If there are gaps in your muting, they will show up. The good news is there are no gaps in your muting!!! Being able to string mute using just the picking hand is crucial skill that some players never quite get. You've got it down cold.
MULTI PICKING: Another technique that is a real stumbling block for some folks, not for you!! Multi picking requires the picking hand to adapt quickly to which string is being struck This can get tricky. You handle it with smooth grace. Well played
HIGH FRET TRAVERSE: Moving up the high frets can be very difficult as they get much smaller and finger movement has to be very precise. This is the "upper deck" where the high notes in most dynamic solos take place. We've worked a lot on the lower deck, below the 12th fret, you will notice the addition of the upper deck in these advanced Missions. You played it like you were born to it!!
You are now in the last 25 Missions before Triple Digits. This is the tough part. Once you get through these, you'll have most of the techniques well in hand. It will become a matter of increasing precision/difficulty and speed after that. For now, you KILLED IT!!!! and..
LEVELED UP!!Sarge

NICE!! Yet again Soldier you set the bar high!! Shooting them down as soon as you see them!! One shot, one kill. Let's debrief!!
MEDAL OF HONOR

STRETCH FROM HELL: You may have noticed that many of the recent missions contain multiple fret stretches. By this point, Soldiers should be able to make long fret reaches and stick the landing with the pinky. You are very adept at this. However, some folks have a very hard time on this and as a result, get stuck right around this area. I don't see you getting stuck at all!
COMPLEXITY AND PRECISION: You may have also noticed that each of drills has a level of complexity that requires focus. This too is a stumbling block for some. Not for you!! I've seen you play even the most complex bits with grace and style.
FRET TRAVERSE: Glided through the fast fret traverse bit in a very impressive way. This too can be a serious impediment for many players. Not so for you!! Yet again you have shown a great ability to traverse frets while changing shapes.

You have all of the pieces in place Soldier!! I see greatness on deck!!! You just...
LEVELED UP!!!

Nice!!!! It's great to see you have no problem playing the blues! Sometimes, folks that can play with a degree of technical ability, get painted with the brush that they somehow can't play blues/can't play with "feeling". I've always though this was pure bunk. That's why I include some straight up BLUES licks in Bootcamp. I really want that part of the musical vocabulary you get from Bootcamp to include these types of licks. Let's Debrief!!
MEDALS OF HONOR

*SCALING UP: You may have noticed that each example added more notes to the mix. Sometimes, adding too many notes can get confusing. Not so here!! I could have doubled the amount of notes and you would probably still have no problem. Being able to remember very long note groupings is a talent all by itself.
*FEELING THE BLUES: Some thing you can be technical and be good at blues. That's bunk. Pure bunk. You are already a very technically able player and you are great at the blues!! Loved the little improv bits as well!!

*NAILING IT: Even the most complex bit was no problem for you. Your ability and skill continue to grow with each Mission. Keep it up Soldier!! You are on a ROLL!
You just..
LEVELED UP!!
