MISSION 10 DEBRIEF!!!



This is a tricky beast of a finger twisting Mission and you took it on with grace and skill. Well played! Let's Debrief!!

MEDALS OF HONOR

*THAT SYNCHING FEELING: it's critical that each pick strike matches up with a fretted note. You have to stick the landing each and every time, which you do!!

*MUTE OR DIE: you gotta keep a good palm mute on this guy or string noise will just wreck it. Your mute is spot on.

*AGGRESSIVE STYLE: This is a hard lick to play. You jumped right in and pushed the envelope and still kept it under control. Nice!!! In short you just....

LEVELED UP!!!!

Hi Sarge

Thank you

Here the mission 13

I’ve a trouble with double alternate picking. I think the problem came from my elbow.
On 100 and 110 BPM, the amplitude of my right hand is too large and my elbow is mobile.
I'll work to this point slowly to fix the problem

You are playing this quite well. It's VERY tricky. You dont' miss a note/strike. Just from a quick view this one will be a badge up for sure. You are still playing very well with wrist control and are barely using any forearm movement at all. There is always room for improvement on picking, but I must say you have very solid technique. Best of all your pick hand is not tensing up. That's Key to good foundational technique.

MISSION 11 DEBRIEF!!!!!!

MEDALS OF HONOR
LOOPY: I use lots of "Looping licks" when I teach. The goal of this is to make you a CONSISTENT player. Part of what I'm trying to teach you is Playing like a Robot in order to Shred Like a God.
NON STOP TRAVERSE: This lick traverses strings and frets non stop. Partially to build endurance, partially to get your hands accustomed to playing long sequences of notes. This will serve you well when we start doing very long scale runs.
ARTICULATION: You are doing a very good job of articulating the pick keep that up!! As you continue to improve your finger articulation you will notice that you use less and less of the elbow and even less wrist. Eventually, you will be able to use just your thumb/finger for any speed up to your full SHRED speed limit at which point you will add some wrist

You are doing GREAT soldier. You are starting out with some of the best playing I've ever seen here in bootcamp. Every student starts at a different level. The course is built so that anyone can start and finish it. Those who are further along can get more out of it as they can focus on technique. You are bringing a LOT to it which is great.

You've got this down pat Soldier!! You just...
LEVELED UP!!!!

MISSION 12 DEBRIEF!!!
MEDALS OF HONOR
ALT PICK OF DESTINY: Alt Picking is a big part of "Shredding". I have a LOT of alt picking drills in bootcamp. Without good alt picking technique, this lick won't work. It's the kind of thing you just cant play with all downstrokes and have it work well. Your Alt picking technique is top notch! Nice!!
MULTI PICK OF DOOM: Welcome to Multi Picking from Hell!! It takes some getting used to but it's a powerful technique. It works on any lick. Well done!
PINKY TIME: Good use of the pinky here! On the lower frets, Pinky Power is crucial.

The "slide" is another great way to add something to single string work. You got it spot on! The only thing I'd say to try is a bit heavier of a palm mute from time to time to give these licks more of a "chunky" and percussive feel. When played with a heavy palm mute, these licks sound different than when played with a light mute. Well done on the pinch harmonics as well!

You krushed it and ..

LEVELED UP!!!

MISSION 13 DEBRIEF!!!

Soldier I"m impressed! ! This is a tricky bit to be sure. You have great technique on display here. The only issue is near the end where it's really fast, I see that you sort of lose the wrist and start picking from the elbow. This is not enough to keep you from badging up as you play the piece just fine and you can pick any way you like. Just something to be aware of. It seems like your arm is still getting stiff as you speed up. This also prevents you from keeping a solid palm mute as the entire hand is moving along with the arm. Let's debrief!


MEDALS OF HONOR

*TACTICAL PRECISION: Precision is the key to everything and you are very precise. Each strike matches up with a note.

*STEADY PACE: Didn't rush, didn't lag. This is something people often struggle with. They end up playing easier bits fast and tougher bits slow. Not you!! Smooth as glass.

*QUIET AS DEATH: On these types of licks that use all the strings, it's very hard to keep it from generating string noise. Not a problem here!

You ticked every box I was looking for in this Mission!!

Well fought Soldier! You just..
LEVELED UP!!!
You just graduated to the DOUBLE CHEVRON BADGE!!! Super Congrats!!
