hi,

worked on this a bit more, becoming easier now, few speeds as usual.

Tone wise, this is the same Boss high gain patch but recorded directly to the PC. I think it sounds much better, what do you think?

cheers

it sounds like maybe the volume knob on the guitar was rolled backon the previous The reason I ask for a bit more gain is to allow it to catch any string noise and make it stick out more. In this way I can isolate any issues with the palm mute. With lighter gain, string noise is reduced so it's harder to diagnose any problems in technique. I have that guitar on my buy list! They are great axes. Super congrats! Give this one more go and I think you have it! The more you can open your pick hand, and avoid using a clenched/fist pick grip, the better your coverage of the bridge/mute will be. most players rely on their fret hand to mute the high strings and only palm mute the lower strings with the left hand. This is usually fine, but on open string licks, the fret hand mute is not there, for example. This is why I try to guide players to as full a palm mute as possible to allow for flexibility later on in terms of what can be played. I hope this all makes sense smile.gif

Ill have a look at your new vid!

The tone in the new vid is working better well done there! This guitar has loweer gain pickups than the ibanez but it's just fine for our purposes here.

The good news is that you mute is solid and your picking is clean and strong! Now for the bad news. Your synch sounds like it's lagging behind the click and drifting a bit around the click. Maybe slow things down just a pinch and try to make a strike on top of each click. If you play in between the clicks, this is ok as well, it's just a bit harder as you have to almost guess and its' possible to drift around. Pick striking on the clicks allows you to time your strikes to an audio even which is why I suggest it.

I like that you are pushing the speed here!! Maybe do a slow pass and a pushing the speed pass in the same vid?

This is a complicated Lick soldier. It's worth getting this one right as many missions to come are built on this same exact lick. Being able to play it in time and in synch is a crucial step in moving forward. Once more in to the breach!

Hi,

Yes was using the stock high gain patch, but probably volume in this was was low, so it might not come up fully.
Yeah the palm muting! will focus on that a bit more, different axe than usual (pretty bight eh...lol) probably need to play it a bit more to get use to the bridge.

Thanks

Hi,

I had another go, this time with the Ibanez.

2 speeds, and also different position of the right hand for palm muting.
Experimenting a bit on this guitar as I found I need to adapt my right hand vs the position I got used to with the Strat.

I think I’m more inline with the click here, but my muting not as solid as with the Strat yet.

Thanks as always.

Thanks this guitar is fantastic got it second hand but in top shape. FR and locking nut is a first for me, but starting to get how it words.

Well Fought Soldie!! This is what I was hoping to see. Your synch is much improved and your precision is also much better. Your striking with the click and keeping it nice and tight throughout. It will take a bit of time to get used to the flat plane of the floyd rose bridge compared to the strat. however, once you do get used to it, it's a perfect platform for this style of play and for these missions. It provides a nice flat surface on which to place your mute. But lifting just a pinch, you can change the tone of each note. Harder mutes kill sustain which makes each note more distinct, less mute allows more bleed which is sometimes what is needed in a guitar solo. This Axe is pretty much perfect for these missions and style of play. the neck is thin, the pickups are hot, it's a shred weapon. Super congrats.

You got this Soldier. You just..

P.S. Is your volume on the guitar all the way up? Always worth checking on that before a take. Also, put the tone knob all the way up. Are you using a tube screamer in your patch on the katana? It's a great way to clean boost a signal. Taming high gain is a skill by itself, but it's the only way to prepare for playing solos that use high gain tone.

Attached ImageHi Todd.

actually the katana patch was pretty simple just a Lead AMP and lots of Gain and presence (this is the Boss High Gain patch, the TB was off before), I have added a tube screamer as well now, so will test that too going forward.

thanks for the tips

Hi Sarge,

Hope you are well, find below first attempt at lesson11 for a check. Respect to lesson 10 in this one i need to keep it at a lower tempo for sure (or maybe i need to more time...)

Another tricky one for sure, added a bit of tube screamer to the tone to the high gain patch, what do you think?

thanks in advance

Tone is improved smile.gif Is the booster engaged? I see the light for it is NOT on in the preset? I would say click that light on if needed and use the booster set as MAX as you are still not getting very much gain out of this. I'm sure that amp has wads of distortion in it. It's just a matter of getting used to playing with way more gain. It's a way to make sure you are muting and avoiding string noise. Also the search for tone is endless.

As for the playing, you are missing one note in the pattern in both videos. The second vid has better tone so that's great! Keep pushing that. Turn the gains up to max and boost up to max and keep your guitar volume at max and see if you can control the noise. Go back to the tablature and play this very very slowly and you'll find the missing note smile.gif

Hi Sarge,

quick one hopefully with the all the notes tongue.gif !

Tone wise also a bit more booster/ t-cream (~60% now), my issue is that if i go above that i struggle to hear the metronome click laugh.gif

cheers

Soldier your tone is much more aggressive and your playing the part perfectly!!!! The metronome is leading your playing just a pinch. This isn't a shred lick, it's a finger twister. It's only purpose is to get your fingers to fight their way through a very tough looping segment where one false note means starting over. Congrats on everything here. I think you may be pushing the speed just a bit to hard. There will be plenty of shred licks that are built for speed. This one is just to test your precision. slow things down just a pinch and keep everything else as it is and you've got it sorted!! Watch this video again and see if you can hear the clicks running just slightly ahead of the pick strikes?

This is a valiant effort soldier and I applaud your aggression. Back off the speed just a pinch and BAM. Sorted

I hate to have you do this again but I have failed as your Drill Instructor if I let you move forward without playing this in tight synch.

Hi,

yes slowing it down i do see that I pick in between the click rather than on the click toward the end.
This drill also is proving to be quite challenging!

Another one below a bit slower and hopefully a bit tighter too

cheers,

I'm seeing progress in your playing here and improvement in your tone and think we can sort the playing on the click bit as we go so let's stick a fork in this one and call it done. You are much closer to playing on the click than at the first version, but still not quite able to play directly on a click. However, I think we have gone as far as we can in this Mission. You've made good progress and I think it may be on another Mission where you finally make your 'breakthrough" in terms of playing precisely on the click. At this point, I'm happy with your progress and your hard work and I think it's time to move forward. So congrats Soldier!! you just...

LEVELED UP!!!!

Hello Sarge,

Hope all is good. Worked on this one, I can probably get it a little faster than this. Have not really tried the pinch harmonic, I was focusing more on the timing/speed.

What do you think?

thanks in advance

Congrats on playing this one Soldier! It's tricky. It's got a slide in it that might be new to your hand. Also, the timing is a bit strange. You can count it in simple 4/4 time if you use 8th notes, Each note takes 2 beats and the held note takes a full measure. I can hear your clicks are set to something else but whatever works for you is ok smile.gif The important bit on this one is getting used to the slide.

I think I hear the NECK pickup in this one? I may be wrong of course. I can't see the pickup switch. For all bootcamp missions it's best to use the BRIDGE pickup so I can hear your pick strikes. Some folks use the bridge and its' a bit muddy so it still sounds like the neck. I'm always trying to get the tone more clear so I can hear individual pick strikes. smile.gif

I think you have this one down Soldier. You've got the slide. Your ready to move on!!

You just..

LEVELED UP!!!
