Hey Gabby

Thank you so much for suggesting those cool lessons.. even though those lessons have most of the techniques in the the songs i wanted to learn but for some reason i can not feel the same grove. but you know what ill go for it .. I'll learn how to utilize these techniques for my own liking in the future.

i can not go through all the lessons as this is too much to learn at the same time plus the level is a bit high for my current level so i'll narrow the list as follows: (I hope you will agree with me)

- for rhythm i ll go for both of the lessons:

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Thrash-Like-Mustaine/
https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/rhythm-gu...ower-galloping/

- for alternate technique we go for both of the lessons as well but first we will start with the linear picking one then we move to the Yngwie runs

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Linear-Shred-Zone/
https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Yngwie-Malmsteen-Runs/

- for sweep picking i'll have to pass the one you suggested since that would be too much for me to handle at this time and instead we go with the bonus licks in the previous masters of sweep lesson. what do you say ?

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Masters-of-Sweeping/

- The legato lesson you suggested seems too complicated. can you find something easier and satrianish ?

Thanks a lot for your help my friend, I couldn't have reached this level without your guidance

Hi Anese! Cool stuff!

I've watched both songs and the main techniques used there are:

- Alternate Picking
- Sweep Picking
- Legato
- Right hand Metal Rhythm
- Vibrato


We have lots of lessons covering these techniques in those styles.

For rhythm:
https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Thrash-Like-Mustaine/
https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/rhythm-gu...ower-galloping/

Alternate Picking:
https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Linear-Shred-Zone/
https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Yngwie-Malmsteen-Runs/

Sweep Picking:
https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Yngwie...teen-Arpeggios/

Legato:
https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/legato-stamina/


Most of these lessons are a bit advanced. You can use the licks as exercises to slowly increase your technique speed, or we can search for easier lessons covering these concepts. OR we can do both! Let me know what you think.

Great Anese!! I'm really proud mate! smile.gif

I think that "Master of Sweeping" is a good option. What about these series for legato?

Hello Gabby

Sorry for the late reply.

I'm glad that you liked my take in the Blues as a tool collab Tobic.

As for the Legato lessons you suggested i'll pick the Intermediate one. since we worked on the beginner one before
here's my take
https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_fo...mp;#entry719557

Now I'll have to think of a practice schedule for these lessons anything in mind ?

Thanks buddy,

Warming up: 5/10 minutes

Rhythm: 2x15 (2 blocks of 15 minutes)

Alternate Picking: 2x15

Sweep Picking: 2x15

Legato: 2x15


Then, 20 minutes of jamming or just playing random stuff for fun. If you can't play 2 hours a day, you can make 1x15 of any or all the concepts.

Hello Gabby

Thanks for the advice

During the recent days i kept focusing more on the Mustain lesson and the Ben bonus licks from the (Masters of sweeping) lesson.
I started working on the first bonus sweep lick (part 17)
here Ben plays the lick at 120 PBM, where he keeps playing each inversion group at one single beat (6 triplet notes per beat) which makes it more fast.

here I added a video recording my self while trying to build a practice strategy for this lick.
I'm practicing around 80 BPM, trying to isolate each block (a group of six notes) then connect it to the next one.
sometimes you will note that i start playing before the beat, but what I like to share more is how i'm practicing this one and what kind of strategy i'm following to be able to play this as flawless as possible.
please watch and let me know if you have any more ideas to how to practice and approach this lesson.


further more i previously this song to work on.
it's an old song that i need to play the singing line on guitar, and maybe fill the gabs in between with some other licks.
at first i need to figure what key is this song in, to pick the right scales and modes for it.
so where do i start with ? there's no guitar here.

also please note that i'm not interested to play along the song since it's not suitable for guitar, but i'm trying to get the singing line to be played as a melody on the guitar. then maybe i'll try find (or create) a suitable backing track for itز

that's it for now buddy, I'll keep you updated

Thanks

Hi Anese! Great stuff here!! smile.gif

I've watched your practice video and it's exactly what I did to master Sweep Picking technique. If possible, practice continuos loops too. For example when you play the three arpeggios and then stop, try getting playing the idea in reverse and get back to the first arpeggio. This type of variations will help you master this technique.

I also remember practicing 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 sweeps arpeggios during the same period of time. Each of them helped the other.

About the song... I think that it's a good exercise to do what you want. The first thing that you need to do is to learn and simplify the chord progression for each part, and it possible record it to work on lead guitars. This is not an easy job because most of the parts only have a walking bass. This means that you need to understand what's the chord that works over each bass pattern.

In order to help you I'd like to say that the song is in Am, but A harmonic minor also works in most of the parts. These three chords are the most used: Am, Dm and E.
