Great to see you back in the fight, swinging that Axe!!!! Knocking em down left and right!! Blood on the fretboard!! You really tore in to this one with a vengeance! Let's debrief!!

TRAVERSE OF KINGS You may have noticed that these licks have a LOT of string traverse. It's something that feels more natural the more you do it. Your traverse is quite smooth. You are doing very well on this. it's a crucial skill and you have it pretty much sorted. Nice!

SOLID PACING
Any looping lick like these is about pacing. It's to test your ability to keep a steady pace over a longer length of ground. Your internal metronome is developing nicely. It's in perfect synch to the click. Another crucial skill that you showing great skill at. Score!!

ALT PICKING FROM HELL
Pretty much non stop alternate picking. The point of this is to see if you can keep up non stop alt picking without missing notes or getting the pick caught on the strings. This will come in handy when you start doing scale runs all the way up the neck. You are putting all the skills you will need in place! Triple Kill!

You really KRUSHED this one Soldier!! Impressive Work!!!

You just..



LEVELED UP!!!

WOW. Soldier you have been putting some time in the woodshed!! You killed this one. Precision, speed, control. It's all there. You are more than ready for the crazy bits that are ahead. Let's Debrief!!

MEDALS OF HONOR

SNIPER
Picking with the the tactical precision of a Sniper. Precision is what it's all about.

CONSISTENCY This is the most important thing you can do and your doing it well. This drill is built to give you enough room to show your ability to keep it up over a distance. You nailed it!!

MUTE TO KILL Also crucial is a good palm mute. If you have a weak mute, you get string noise. Not here!!!!

You are more than ready Soldier!!!

Keep going!
You just ...

LEVELED UP!!!

In this Mission we take my favorite scale inversion and then we move it up the neck! So we have a FINGER TWISTER with constant string traverse and then we add constant fret traverse! This is tricky and you do it smooth as glass!

Let's Debrief!!!

MEDALS OF HONOR

*SYNCH OR SWIM: Hand synch is CRUCIAL on this lick. If you slip just once, it sticks out like a sore thumb as I'm sure you found out. Not a problem here. Your synch is spot on and will serve you well as you move forward in to the crazy licks.

*MUTE OR DIE: Due to the massive amount of string/fret traverse, you gotta keep a good palm mute on this guy or string noise will just wreck it. Loose the mute and you loose control but that never happens here. Nice!

*AGGRESSIVE STYLE: This is a hard lick to play. You were not intimidated by it at all. You just leaped at it like a crazed lion! Score!!

In short you just...

LEVELED UP!!!

Well Fought Soldier!! This one is built to break. It's designed to torture your fingers in to making a mistake. It's really an endurance test, sort of like repeating a tongue twister over and over until your tongue slips up. I"m realy just trying to see how many reps you can pull off before it starts to blow up. The good news is you made it all the way up the neck before fatigue started to dig in. Let's Debrief!!!

LOOPY: You may noticed that I have you play licks often in a "Loop". This is so that you focus on the lick itself. Also, it allows me to see your playing over a distance of ground. If you rush/lag, it will stand out. Part of what I'm trying to teach you is Playing like a Robot in order to Shred Like a God. It's about consistency. Once you learn to play for extended periods at speed, you can then add your own dynamics and twists in there to make a lick your own and create your own style.

NON STOP TRAVERSE: As with a few others, this lick traverses strings and frets non stop. Partially to build endurance, partially to get your hands accustomed to playing long sequences of notes. It forces the hand to adapt. What I'm trying to teach with this is that your hand needs to find a way to use a minimum of energy in order to play for extended periods at speed. You are adapting quite well!

ARTICULATION: You are doing a very good job of articulating the pick and avoiding the dreaded "Picking from the Elbow". You are also keeping a good mute and keeping string noise at bay. Well done!!

You only had a little hiccup at the very end but you more than krushed it all the way up the neck. You are ready for what awaits!!

You've got this down pat Soldier!! You just...

Leveled up!!!
