MISSION 40 DEBRIEF!!!!

WELCOME BACK TO THE FIGHT SOLDIER!!! I Knew you had this kind of FIRE in your Belly!!!!! IT's great to see. As one of the former TOP DAWGS, I do have high expectations for your ability!! I know you can play!!! In this one, the second drill is a pinch tricky, and I can hear a couple of small misses on the high strings as you move down. You may be pushing the speed a bit ahead of where you can actually play this lick. I appreciate the AGGRESSION!! You can add an aggressive take that's on the edge at the end of each vid. But..... There needs to be one example of you playing in full control. Hitting every note, letting no bad notes by, etc. One more pass on the second drill a pinch slower and you've GOT THIS!!!

NAILED IT!! Where ya been Soldier!!! Good to see you back in the fight!!!!!! This is what I am looking for out of this. It's a great way to run a scale! You can run any scale this way. It always works smile.gif

let's Debrief!!!
MEDALS OF HONOR
LEFT HAND SKILLS THAT KILL Firstly, all about every string. I made use of every string on purpose so that you can try to mute without moving your hand too much. You did a great job of keeping your mute stable and not moving your right hand around. It's easy to get pulled in to moving the hand instead of just rotating the wrist.
RIGHT HAND SKILLS THAT KILLL Secondly, looking for precision on the right hand. Didn't miss a beat or a note!
THAT SYNCHING FEELING Lastly I wanna see tight synch!!! If there are gaps it's easy to spot. You have really good right left synch.

This is much improved and it looks like you have lost some weight? Congrats you just..
LEVELED UP!!!!

Great to have you back! Your working out is clearly paying off! Looking at 41 it seems that it does need a Re-Take. I typically badge up/grade one per day so that I can give feedback on each. It looks like you may have been rushing things a bit and there is not always great note separation. This one is NOT a shred lick. It's actually a blues lick so it's meant to be mid tempo at best. Slow this down a bit and focus on making each note clear and distinct. In the learning process, precision always trumps speed. Speed is just a matter of repetition. However, it the precision isn't there, one just repeats un precise playing which just leads to faster un precise playing. So precision always wins. Once more in to the breach!!!

That's more like it Soldier!! Nice and tight! Under control as it shoot be.
let's Debrief!!
MEDALS OF HONOR

FINGER TRAVERSE: Firstly Im looking to see how you run all the strings. This drill makes you hit them all! It requires you to traverse all the strings which is a way to test if you have the ability to traverse non stop. You did it!

PALM MUTE: Secondly I need to see a solid mute. You can do it quite well!!!

PICK ONCE HAMMER MANY: Lastly I need to see your "pick once hammer many". You have zero problem with it. Try the pick once hammer many on every scale you know. It's a great technique. Well done!

In short Solder, you just...
LEVELED UP!!!

MISSION 42

You are off to a great start! You didn't do a solo over the backing track though which is the most important part of 42. You did a great job on the warmup and lick, but the solo is really important. Download the backing track and create a short solo over it. This one lesson stumps more people than any other. The solo doesn't have to be fast, it doesn't even have to be good. It just has to be an attempt to play a solo roughly in key that roughly works with the backing. The attempt is the most important thing.

Go for it Soldier!!

NICE!! Well fought Soldier. The entire point of this part of the Mission is to get you to dive in and play a solo. At this point, we are 40 plus missions in so you have plenty off licks learned to add to your own. You put them to good use here! For many people, this Mission is a HUGE stumbling block. It requires you to dig deep and actually play a lead solo. This is the entire point of bootcamp. To give you the tools and training you need to be able to create music. I'm impressed with what you came up with! I can see several bits from Bootcamp and some of your own bits as well. I like the use of the harmonizer as well. Well played. This is exactly what I want to see from this bit. You just..

QUICK LICKS 43 DEBRIEF

MEDALS OF HONOR


TRICKY PICKING: First thing I'm looking at on this is the picking. There is a TON of picking on this. You nailed it Soldier. The picking on this is very very tricky indeed.

SPIFF SYNCH: Secondly I want to see your hand synch. If you lose synch, these just fall apart. The tricky picking can make your synch drift, but not here!!! Not you!!Spot on.

TRAVERSE GALORE: Lastly I want to see you traverse every string and not generate string noise. This entire mission is one No gaps!

In short, you just..

MISSION 44 DEBRIEF!!

Well Fought Soldier!! It's great to see you diving back in to the fight!! This one seemed to give you no trouble at all which is good to see. Things get a bit trickier once you pass the MISSION 50 mark. You are ready!!!


MEDALS OF HONOR

PICKED CLEAN: Firstly I wanna see clean picking!!! I always need to see clean picking cause sloppy picking is sloppy playing. Solid Picking Soldier!! You are developing a very strong picking technique, which is great to see!!

SMOOTH AS SILK: Secondly I want this to feel like it's all played on one string and smooth as glass. Not rushing or lagging, smooth and in the zone!!

PICKING WHILE MUTED: Lastly it's all about the mute. Since this traverses every string it's easy to lose mute and have string noise. This is one of the hardest things both to teach and to learn. Super Congrats, you have managed it. NICE!

You got this and are ready for what's next! you just..
LEVELED UP!!!!
