This is good Soldier!!! I really want to see you loop this. It makes a great looping lick. Just pick a speed and play the lick on loop. It gives the hand time to get used to it. I think there may be a bit more speed hiding in those fingers as well. Here is your chance to push 200!

Take 2 Sarge, same BPMs as take 1 but this time two notes per beat so effectively double the speed but a little trickier with the second note not having a metronome click.

Well fought Soldier!!! Being able to loop this is crucial and you got it!

Let's Debrief!!


*Sweep Shape: This starts with a sweep type shape with two down strokes. This is the
most important part. It trains the hand to get used to doing sweep picking which is done as a rake of all down strokes and then all up strokes.

*Follow Up: Following the sweepy bit, you go in to a scale bit which is to test your ability to make shifts very quickly without a pause. You killed it!

*Precision: A high degree of precision is required for this entire thing. There are no gaps per usual. Miss one note, it goes to bits. You nailed the loop!!!

You got a nice pinky stretch going as well Soldier!! This proves you are ready for the deep end of the crazy pool that's up next!

You just..

LEVELED UP!!!

Thanks Sarge,

Is it okay to omit the last note and loop the first six bars??

Thanks buddy,

Economy picking is definitely easier as one ramps up the bpm. I guess it pretty pointless at low speeds anyway eh?

I still find my hand going down strokes when going to higher strings and alt when going to heavy strings for some reason. After so many scales it almost happens by itself.

I wanted to take a moment to honor your faith in the company your father built and the men in your service.

The Men and families that depend on you are lucky indeed. Not every boss would be doing everything under the sun to make sure his workers were cared for. Many lesser men have fired every single person in their employ. My own countrymen for example have shamed themselves in such a manner.

I wanted to ask about the man who had fallen to this sickness. My prayers are with him and his family and you in this time of greatest need. We are all of one skin, one blood, one family of man and we have to pull together in this or many more of us will die.

If more of my own countrymen fought tooth and nail to save those who work for them, maybe our unemployment rate would not be the worst since the Great Depression.

Thank you Todd.

The man you ask about turned out he was fine, similar symptoms but didn't develop a fever and was fine again after about three days but we kept him out for the week, then we closed until after Easter.

Strict working conditions will be imposed when we return unless the government put a harder lockdown in place and stop us going.

Thank you again for you kind words.

Cheers

Phil

I was sad to hear the Prim Minister himself has come down with this plague and is not doing well. I've seen several folks high up in various government positions come down with this thing and some have even died. One of the guys from IRAN who came on and said not to worry was wiping flop sweat from his forehead and ended up passing away a few days later.

Our understanding of this thing is changing day to day it seems as nobody has ever dealt with it before, we are all learning as we go. Be as careful as you can be bud. In the words of Churchill himself, keep Calm and Shred on.

Back on it Sarge,

Sorry for being AWOL on this one for a while, as you know I've been in a bit of a funk.

I have a question. When I start the loop, my hand wants to start the first note of bar one on an upstroke which would technically be economy picking, is this okay? After that one note, the next one is tabbed as a downstroke which would be correct anyway so it's just at the start/end of the loop where that first note would change to an upstroke for ALL subsequent loops.

I hope that makes sense, I'll do it however you tell me Sarge wink.gif

Cheers

Phil

No worries Soldier!! The entire World is in a bit of a FUNK just now so you, my friend, get a pass!

As for the question. Sure thing!! Starting with an upstroke is fine especially if your hand wants to do it that way. I"m a big fan of listening to the hands even when they don't match up to the tab. There are rare instances when I'm trying to force the hand to do something it doesnt like doing but this isn't one of those. Knock em dead!

Thanks Sarge,

Here is the file and I LOOP BARS 7-12 ONLY but on the first pick strike I play a down. See how you think it works please.

Attached File  Mission_16.gp5 ( 2.39K ) Number of downloads: 4


I wish there was a way to play the whole file and then just loop bars 7-12, I guess it could be done with repeat notation but I don't know how to do that yet. Effectively, play bars 1-6 as per picking notation and then just keep repeating 7-12. This keeps the economy picking on the first two notes of bar one and switches to the upstroke on the first note of bar 7

This extended version shows exactly what I mean as to how I would play it.

Yup!!! That's the lick!! It's taken from a classical piece which is why it has such a neoclassical flair to it. It works well single, double, triple and quad picked and gets harder at each stage of multi picking. Feel free to find any spot on the neck where you feel most comfy. Lower spots on the neck are very good for working the stretch, higher spots are good for working on playing in tight spaces. Adapt the Mission to serve your needs. I think you are ready to start modding the Missions to serve you rather than you serving them. Unlike most students you are hundreds of lessons deep with my other GMC offerings such as quick licks.

I say go for it! I'm looking forward to seeing it. Try to see if you can articulate the pick with the finger and and thumb if possible. I know this is a tricky bit to try, but give it a whirl if you can!

Take 1 up for scrutiny Sarge. I tried to do more of a sweep rather than a picking motion in the same direction. Couldn't quite pull it off but it's a step in the right direction.

the CROSS ROADS solo dual. It's not a direct rip off, but I must admit it's pretty close. I loved that solo dual they did and the classical bit that Ralph Machio played was amazing. This is based on a bit from that solo. He was studying classical in the film and wanted to be a blues player to he combined classical and blues in the same solo (for those who have not seen the movie, Spoiler Alert!).

You did a fine job on it. It's a bit of a finger twister, like many classical bits. It requires very similar patterns that move across strings so it's very easy to lose ones place mid stream. You kept it all under control and made it yours! NICE!!! I think you may have struggled with this a couple of years ago, but now you attack it like an old pro!!

Let's Debrief!!

MEDALS OF HONOR


SOLID MUTE: Because this one goes over several strings, it's a good test of your mute. You did a fine job! It's the first thing I look for here as this one is prone to string noise if the mute gets away from you . NICE!

SYNCH OR SWIM: Second thing I wanna see if solid hand synch since bad synch will wreck the entire piece. Lots of fret and string traverse so missing a strike is easy to do. Good news is you don't miss any strikes!

ARTICULATION: Good to see you using thumb/first finger pick articulation! It's a very tricky thing to do. Takes a while to get used to it. It does allow part of the hand to keep a mute while traversing.

I know this is a tricky one and I'm very glad to see you have got a good handle on it!! The difficulty level is starting to ramp up and you are keeping it high and tight!

You just ...

LEVELED UP!!!

Thanks Sarge,

You know two of the trickiest things for me about this lick were, as we discussed, when looping the economy picking goes awry, as you loop back to the low E string even how I do it, economy picking back to the low E, you have to alternate pick for two notes. You either economy pick back to the low E making you alternate pick to the A string or, you alternate pick back to the low E so you can economy pick to the A string.

The second thing is, once one starts the loop it gets tricky, especially if you've learned just the six bars alone to start with as I did rolleyes.gif . Bars 1, 2, 5, 6 are the same with bars 3 & 4 being similar but starting on the A string. Now when one starts looping there comes a point where one is playing bars 5 & 6 and 1 & 2 right after each other. Now when one learns it at first, one is used to playing the A string lick straight after the low E string lick and back to the low E string lick, looping forces you to play the low E string lick TWICE and then the A string lick. This messed with my head for along time rolleyes.gif

Sorry for the long reply Sarge, I hope it makes sense wink.gif
