Nice!! The first lick can feel odd to play as I took the middle notes out! You didn't have any trouble at all!
Let's Debrief!!

MEDALS OF HONOR

SPICE OF LIFE: They say variety is the spice of life so I varied these licks a bit from our normal fare. Lot's of moving parts going on. You handled them all.

TECHNIQUE ON POINT: Technique is solid as a rock. Synch, picking , muting, NICE!

AGGRESSIVE STYLE: I like how I can feel you pushing the edge of your ability. You never push to far, never slip up, but you are always pushing the edge a bit. That's where progress happens. At the very edge of our ability.

You KRUSHED it Soldier and ..

LEVELED UP!!!

Huge stretch is no problem! NICE!! Let's Debrief!

MEDALS OF HONOR

TECHNICAL PROWESS: You've fought your way up to this point Soldier!! You've earned it. Your technical ability is clear. You never miss.

LIKE A CLOCK :
Timing is everything. You have developed a very good sense of TIME. This is crucial for any player who wants to be a great player.

MEMORY MAN: Soooooo many moving parts on this one. Not to mention the HUGE stretch. It would be easy to mix these together and forget a note here or there. Not for you!!!! You never miss a single one. You memorized every lick and played it back perfectly.

You ticked all the boxes that I'm looking for on this Mission. You are ready for the Missions coming up after 100.

You just...

LEVELED U!!!

MISSION 84 DEBRIEF


Soldier, I see a few things that give me pause on this Mission. For one thing, you have developed the habit of using your pinky then second finger instead of using the fourth finger which is right next to the pinky. This is what is causing you to slip up a bit on the first drill. Because the frets are very close, using this odd finger placement is causing your fingers to get in their own way and reducing your precision. I know you can play riffs that are more complicated than this one and you could play this one perfectly with a bit more practice. But for sight reading it, it's good enough. However, I would suggest you try to fight this habit as it's not a good habit to have and it's going to get in your way. Also, the last lick is intended to force your hand to make a large stretch so that you are almost forced to use your pinky. You don't use the pinky, you use the first and third finger. This is a natural thing to do of course as the third finger is stronger than the pinky. But, in future missions, if there is more than a 3 fret stretch, make sure to use the pinky and not the third finger It's more difficult to be sure, but it's meant to be more difficult so that you train the pinky and don't get limited to using the third finger.

Let's Debrief!!

MEDALS OF HONOR

PINKY TO THE RESCUE: Good use of the Runt Finger on the first drill. But, using your second finger instead of your third finger is getting in the way of being able to play licks like this one.

PENTATONIC PROGRESS:
The Pentatonic Shapes are critical. They are the foundation on which all Rock playing is built. It's good to see that you are getting very comfortable playing these shapes!

TRAVERSE TIL YOU DROP:
You are doing really well on your string traverse, but try to switch to using pinky/third finger when two frets are right next to each other and use the pinky for long stretch licks.

You are ready for the next Mission!

You just. LEVELED UP!!

You clearly have these licks in hand Soldier! The bad news is I still see you doing that thing where you use the pinky and second finger in sequence instead of the pinky and third finger. This is something that is getting in the way of your precision and progress and I hope you can fix it in the next set of vids As for now, let's debrief!

MEDALS OF HONOR


PINKY POWER :Very good to see you using the pinky. It can't get enough work as it was born the runt of the litter. If you can sort out that one thing where you use the second finger paired with the pinky you'll see huge gains.

STAGE LEFT: A really good palm mute with the left hand is crucial to keep string noise at bay. It will become even more crucial once you get to the mythic triple digit barrier!

SYNCH AND SWIM LIKE A CHAMP: Per usual, no space between notes means any mistakes are glaringly bad. That's the purpose of making really long traverse drills. To see if your synch will just wear out and start to fall apart. Good news is you You have very good synch. I could see you working through these drills as the video progressed. It's good to see how your hand adapts and gets better in a very short time.

You have this one sorted Soldier.

You just..

LEVELED UP!!!

MISSION 86


Well fought Soldier!! This one has a lot of moving parts and the tapping bit at the end is a bit insane. You didn't have any trouble at all with it! It's got a bit stretch, and you nail that and you use the pinky! It's built to almost force the hand to use the pinky. Yet some folks still try to use the first and third finger even when stretching from first to fifth fret. I'm glad you are not! Well done Soldier!!! Let's Debrief!!

MEDALS OF HONOR


PERFECT PACE: Pacing traps are everywhere in this one and you didn't fall for any of them!! It's built to trick your hand in to playing the bits that are easier much faster than the hard bits. But you keep it smooth and even. Score!

SINGLE STRING MADNESS: Your fret traverse on the single string is impressive. You hit every note and keep good time. Double Score!

PINKY POWER: Creat use of the PINKY!!! It's the key to soooo much in terms of becoming a better player. You got this one down Soldier. You just..

LEVELED UP!!!
