Try it with the 16th notes on the metronome and see if you can keep it synched with the metronome. Once you can always keep a lick tight with a metronome, you can stop using one as your internal metronome will take over. But as long as you find you are too focused on the lick to stay synched with the metronome, it's a good idea to keep using one. You can clearly play this lick. I think you may just get too focused on it and it's hard to focus on a fast lick and listen to a click at the same time but that is why we are here smile.gif It's possible, just takes some time. Keep it up!!!

Lesson - 7 - Take 2



Let me know if this time I am synched with the metronome.

Here I play it at 80BPM, I can play it faster, but I just wanted to be sure that I can play it in time and as clean as possible.

If you think my playing is good here, let me know what do you think if I will make another video where I will try to push it to my speed limit or should I proceed to the next lesson?

BINGO!!!! Now you are getting it Soldier!!! This is exactly what I"m talking about. I just need a few bars to see if you are getting the hang of it. You got it!!!! This is a great lick for working up speed so keep it in your WARMUP ROUTINE!! Let's Debrief!!



MEDALS OF HONOR

ALT PICKING: The first thing I look for on this Mission is your Alternate Picking. You are off to a good start here. Some quick tips.1.)KEEP IT SHALLOW: When alt picking in bootcamp, make sure to "shallow pick" E.G. The space between the strings and the body of the guitar. Your pick should only strike deep enough to let the tip of the pick hit the string. No deeper than that. 2.)
2.)TRY CLASSICAL POSITION: See if you can place the guitar on your left leg instead of your right leg. This will help you a great deal as you re train your picking hand. It changes the entire angle of your hand/arm. Also it raises the angle of the neck. Put your left foot on a stack of books or something to raise it off the floor. This is called "Classical position" since it's how classical players play. There is a very good reason they play this way. It makes playing the guitar easier once you get used to it!!! Here is a pic.Attached Image


MUTE: Second thing I look foor here is a good mute. Well done there! No string noise. QUICK TIPS!!1.)Proper Mute: Put your palm on the bridge and keep it flat against the bridge so that you can mute all of the strings just using your picking hand. This is a pic on how it should look. Keep your hand in this position even if you are not muting so that you are always close to the bridge for a quick mute.

SYNCH: The last thing I look for here is SYNCH. You keep good synch on this one and don't drift.



Well done Soldier!! You are ready for Mission 8! Try these QUICK TIPS and see if you can incorporate them in to your playing style. They will help you in a HUGE way going forward.
You just..
LEVELED UP!!!

'I can see you are still fighting a bit with the metronome. You drift off beat just pinch and the catch back up. You seem to be playing on a down beat, e.g. between the clicks instead of on the clicks. Playing with a metronome is not easy at first. But 's a foundational skill.

Watch this vid. At the end, he does a good job playing on beat with the metronome. Sometimes it just helps to hear it done right.


*Around 3:30 he plays one note per beat which is what I'd like you to try.

Despite the odd drift now and then, this is a worthy take. Let's debrief!
MEDALS OF HONOR

TRAVERSE OF KINGS i do use a LOT of non stop string traverse to get you used to crossing strings without losing time on the metronome. You are getting very close. You seem to start on a down beat which is odd and I think may be getting in your way. I'd say get rid of the clack that happens every few clicks and just use clicks if possible. Try to tie your pick strike to a click instead of trying to stick it after the click in the space in between. Make sense?

SOLID PACING
Despite losing track on the metronome a couple of times your overall pace was solid.

ALT PICKING FROM HELL This one requires a lot of alternate picking and string crossing. Well done!! You just...

LEVELED UP!!!

Yes, that makes sense: I can play one note per beat, but that means I will have to slow down very much. If this is helping me to fix my timing I will focus on this.

It's a bit hard for me to play on time since I am not even able to say exactly where I drift off the beat.
What I try to do is listening to my recording, I will also slow it like half of the speed of the original and try to listen if my timing is off.

Also you mistaken my "Medal".

I understand that it's hard. It's meant to be. Retraining your hand and eliminating bad habits is never easy. You will have to slow down QUITE a bit. That's ok. Once you get the technique in hand, you'll be able to speed up to any speed you like. I can play at any rate for as long as I want because i put in the work to be able to play correctly in the start. Without that, one never gets fast, one just gets sloppy. Control is everything. You have to train your ear to hear the metronome as you play. This may require you to slow way down so you don't have to focus so much on guitar. That ok. You'll speed back up quickly. Keep at it!!
