It's just easy to think: "this is not good enough and I'll never use it for anything!" mad.gif



You never know. Maybe re-listening a riff in the future can inspire you to create another one that you love.

I'm hoping to at least get inspired and write some new music. But I find it difficult, especially as I'm very critical and delete a lot of what I write again. I need to change my mindset and save everything.



Yes!! Never delete! Please.

Hi mate!

Nice to see a new REC from you!!

I think that your playing is not bad here but there are many pitch issues. I think that your guitar is not well tuned, but there are also problems related to fingers pressure or not precise bends.

That’s the main thing to fix here. Then you can focus on cleanness, timing, dynamics and tone.

This is a great lesson to work on all those elements so keep on practicing and share a new take in a few days.

Hi Phil!! Thanks for the update!

I think that it’s good to combine your work on 30 great blues with other stuff since that’s a monster lesson.

I also think that setting some sub goals could be positive. For example what about focusing on a shorter section for a while instead of thinking all the time on the whole thing?

While reading your posts I was thinking that maybe seeing this one as an endless lesson can be frustrating. If you divide it in fragments, you can work on other lessons or stuff for a while before getting into the following part.

What are your thoughts?

Hi mate! Great to see you working hard on this one!! I can say that you are doing a killer job. These lines are very tricky to play and memorize, you are on the right track.

Keep going!!

I really enjoy this style! I'm not enjoying The Weeknd new song, and discovered a band called The Midnight.

What about this?

hahah for the same reason that Kris sad, I would go for Fractal III. It seems that it has endless settings and configurations. I will never get bored! biggrin.gif

Fractal and Kemper are my favorites regarding tone. (opinion based on real experience, not based on this video)

I don't think that the tones showed for Fractal are fair in this video. I own a Fractal AX8 and its high gain emulations are killer.



I'm curious to try this one:



Since I find their plug in's demo videos very promising:

Hi mate! You know my thoughts on this one as you are part of my mentoring program.

It's a 7!

Hi mate! Good job here!

I think that both Kris and Todd commented the most important things to work here. I also think that improving your audio mix can make this one much more enjoyable and easier to analyze. (Let me know if you need help with it)

Your playing is good here, but I think that there is still more room to make it more consistent, mostly when playing those ascendant alternate picking passages. (You can add some extra exercises: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/search/alternate+picking/)

To summarie, I would improve your sound here, and continue practicing to make everything sound more consistent. For example, you can work more on vibrato and dynamics, and off course, continue training your AP technique.

Keep on the hard work!

Hi mate! Nice to find your take here!

I can say that this lesson is a great choice for you. The good sides of your playing here are that everything sound clean and with good timing. That's not a small thing my friend!

I can see that there is work to do with your bending and vibrato techniques. Both are not consistent yet. Your vibrato is a bit weak and needs to sound more natural, while your bending is not reaching the right pitch in many parts.

I usually recommend Beginners to check the first part of this video. Joe shares his approach to Vibrato and Bending in a very clear way. Check it out and let me know if you have any question.

I also would like to recommend you this lesson: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/neocla..._for_beginners/

Cheers!

Hi mate! Thanks for the updates and thanks for the "Daily Practise" message. You are a GREAT teacher. smile.gif

About your question, I can only say that this is different for each person, so you need to find out what's the best way for you. I can share my own experience, but I've been giving guitar lessons for more than 20 years and I can assure that each student reacts different to exercises.

In my case, the secret has been to PRACTICE A LOT. There are some tricks like setting metronome at higher speeds to then feel comfortable at slower but the key is to make the things become natural (as Vai says, make them a second nature), and I just can achieve it by practicing the more I can.

I've just read Zakk's tips and I like how simple but real these are:

5. Start out slow and easy
“Whether it’s Gary Moore, Paul Gilbert, Michael Schenker, Rusty Cooley or any of the players that we know who have insane technique, they’ll all tell you the same thing — always start slow. The same is true of warming up, especially if your hands are cold.


6. Clock it
“A metronome is always a perfect point of reference, because you can see if your bench press is getting bigger. Even if you’re only putting two pounds more weight on the bar, it’s like, ‘Oh, man! That’s an achievement.’

“Pretty much any serious player will tell you that a metronome is essential for honing a technique, because it objectively gauges your speed and accuracy. Even if it’s only just a smidgen faster but you’re playing it clean, that’s a win in my book.”

7. Play it again
“Repetition is the mother of skill … always. Is it boring? Yeah, it can be boring, but if you want results, you gotta deal with it. And once you start seeing those results and start playing better, it’s the coolest thing in the world.”

8. Practice at every opportunity
“Without a doubt. Even if you can only get 10 minutes in today, you’ll still be 10 minutes better than you were yesterday. So cram in as much as you can, and do it consistently.”

I would give this take a 7 but I can't assure what other instructors will do. By the way, sharing takes at REC is always helpful!

Hi mate! Thanks for the updates! That Rocker Steakhouse seems VERY promising!!! smile.gif

I was thinking... what about adding this lesson to your diary practice, in order to alternate between rhythm and lead?
