Well fought Soldier!! This was a tough one indeed. It requires big stretch/reach and had wads of tapping that involved pulling off to an open string which is something folks struggle with as it's not a type of tapping that is common like the Van Halen style. You knocked it out of the park! I like your tone as well!! I do hear the delay, you can just turn the delay OFF and resave the patch, problem solved! Or turn off the delay and save it as a new patch and rename it. Either way will work. Let's debrief!!

MEDALS OF HONOR

*TAPPING LIKE A MAD MAD: This has some very difficult two hand tapping bits that travel all the way up the strings. You attacked and crushed them all!
*MUTING: I wanted you to go all the way through all the strings to find out if there are any gaps in your mute. Good news! No gaps.
*STRETCH/REACH: I put these notes far apart on purpose to force your hand to stretch. You did each and every one of them. Score!

You really nailed it on each and every one of these! Very well done. In other words you crushed it and ...

LEVELED UP!!! YOU ALSO REMAIN OUR TOP DAWG!!!

Soldier, the way you are editing your videos cuts out the very start and sometimes the ending of each section so that I can't hear what's being played.sad.gif I can see your fingers though and it looks good, but please do try to put more space in between each cross fade so that it does not cut off the start and sometimes the end of your playing, you've worked hard and I'd like to be able to hear the fruits of your labor!!!!!! smile.gif

Let's debrief!!

MEDALS OF HONOR


*MEMORY MAN: This lesson picks up where the last one left off and asks you to memorize very long note sequences. These are VERY tough Missions indeed and you are KILLING IT. Well done on learning these licks, they are NOT easy to memorize or play. Score!

*PRECISION: Pacing is solid and picking/hand synch are spot on as well. Even the pinky slide is there! Double Score!!!!

*AGGRESION: I really appreciate the way you attack the mission soldier. I can hear the aggression in your playing. TRIPLE SCORE!!

In short you have crushed one of the most difficult missions of the entire series. This is where things get seriously challenging and you are stepping up and fighting at the FRONT LINE!!!! In other words you just

LEVELED UP!!!!AND YOU REMAIN TOP DAWG!!!!

Well Fought Soldier! You are in the tall grass now. These are some of the toughest Missions in the entire series and they are all back to back. Each one has multiple parts and each part could honestly be it's own Mission. This is the tough bit before you break every record and make it in to triple digits which has simply never been done before. Let's debrief!

MEDALS OF HONOR!!

*Timing: Solid pace on each one. Your sense of timing has come a long way since Mission 1!

*Muting: Solid muting on each one and they are designed to be bursting with string noise if you don't keep a good mute.

*Picking: Very solid alternate picking which gets tough with this much string traverse.

This is a bear of a Mission. All of these in this area are tough. You are plowing through them Soldier! keep it up!

In short you just ...

LEVELED UP!!!!! AND YOU REMAIN TOP DAWG!!!!

TURBO IS RUNNING!!! NICE!! This mission is yet another one that is just flat out hard. It's got several bits that you must play in order to make it to the end. None of them are easy. All of them require a stretch and memorizing very odd note sequences that you would otherwise not normally ever play. That's the point of this one, to get your hand to adapt to simply bizarre things that your fingers are not used to. The good news is that you had ZERO problem with this at all! Also, better video editing so I can see/hear the start and completion of a vid. Let's debrief!..

MEDALS OF HONOR

*STREEEEETCH: Is in full effect. Sticking the landing with the pinky as well. Nice!

*MUTE OF THE GODS: Solid palm muting all the way through. You have developed a very solid mute where your hand stays planted on the bridge and you tilt to reach notes. That's how it should be.

*SYNCH TO BEAT THE BAND: Very tight right/left hand synch on each one. You have zero trouble there.

These are the rough ones Soldier. You are ripping it up! Keep your momentum Soldier!!! I like the tone as well. Is this a new patch? One thing I would suggest, I know it's not your normal thing, but try to do one lesson in classical position to see how it feels, it may feel strange smile.gif

In other words you just..

LEVELED UP!!!!! AND YOU STILL ARE THE TOP DAAAAWGG!!!!

The Streak Continues!! This is yet another mission with multiple parts and requires multi picking! These are not easy bits and you have to play each and every one in order to level up. You have been doing a great job burning through these! P.S. I like your patch tone but the delay may be hiding things. I think it sounds familiar, is it one of mine? Maybe kill the delay just for Missions,
it sounds great but makes it a bit harder for me to hear whats happening. Let's debrief!

MEDALS OF HONOR


*MULTI PICKING: You can multi pick just about anything Soldier!

*MUTING : String noise is quiet as DEATH.

*AGGRESSION: The sheer angry picking is impressive.

Keep it up Soldier! You are rubbing up against the double digit threshold.

In other words you just..

LEVELED UP!! YOU REMAIN OUR TOP DAWG!!!!

My apoligies Soldier. I'll fix lesson 77. The tab should match the gp5 files. I'll make it right! As for your work on this it's top notch! Multi picking like a Mad Man, technique is spot on. This is yet another one of the BIG lessons where you have to show adept skill on a variety of techniques over a series of different pieces. Well fought! Let's debrief!!

MEDALS OF HONOR (You remain the TOP DAWG!!!)

*MULTI PICKING - Mega Multi Picking on display. You've really come a loooong way on multi picking and it's one of your best techniques now IMHO. Nice!

*MUTING: Quiet as Death Per usual. You've developed a very strong muting technique and it's serving you well.

*AGGRESSION: You have been en fuego on the AGGGRO!!! Keep it up!!!

You are killing some of the hardest missions that we have to offer. Keep killing it!!

In other words you just...

LEVELED UP!!!!

Welcome Back Soldier!! It's great to see you attacking the Missions again!!!!!! You clearly have not lost an ounce of sheer aggression!!

It has been a while so you may need just a pinch of target practice before you back in full MACHINE GUN mode!!!

I turned up the volume all the way to make sure but I'm having a really hard time hearing your pick strikes. This is a common issue on the 11 rack on the higher gain amp models. The quick way to fix is is to put the green tube screamer over drive pedal in front of the amp head and turn the drive all the way down, and volume/tone all the way up. This will get rid of the muddy character that many of the amps have in high gain settings. Also, back the gain knob on the amp head itself back just a pinch. it will give your tone a much more dynamic flair and let your pick attack come through. It's a shame to not hear your pick attack when you've worked so hard on picking!!!
Also, I want you to take another look at the last few parts of this mission. They are very similar to things we have done in the past and you may be playing from Muscle memory instead of actually playing the bits as they are written. As a result, it's causing you to miss a few notes. All of these could benefit from being played just a pinch slower so that you can focus more on the notes themselves. I appreciate that you are doing wads of multi picking!! Always do a single picked version as well so I can see your hand synch status. Since I can't hear your pick strikes, once you are doing multi picking, I can't tell if you are having good hand synch or not. sad.gif Thats why it's important to work out the tone issue asap.

I'll build an 11 rack patch just for this mission thats well suited for it. Also, try the backing track with the various licks you've picked up in this lesson to show that you can play the licks in musical context! They don't have to be fast, just need to be precise.

WELCOME BACK SOLDIER!!!! Once More In to the Breach!!!

Clearly you've got great speed! Well done there. For this Mission, I actually need you to slow down a bit so that your left hand can catch up with your right hand. I've made a demo video for PART A showing both the "pick every note" and the "Strike once hammer many" technique (keep a palm mute the entire time)that I'd like to see for part A. Try this approach and then strike each note, then multi pick. But make sure to slow down a pinch and try this patch on the 11 rack so that I can hear your pick strikes. If we can't hear your great picking all that work is for nothing!
Use this video demo as the example for A and B. I"m going to re make all the tablature for this lesson so that it's a bit more clear what I"m looking for.


Here is the 11 Rack preset I made just for you just for this Mission. I"m using it in the demo video 78a that I just created for this.
