Playing through the pain! I can see an injury on your arm I hope it's ok! You pushed through it and fought hard!!!

POWERING THE PINKY
This one has some serious challenges in terms of the pinky and forces the hand to really stretch to get to the notes. You have serious PINKY skills at this point and hit every note!!!

OPEN STRING HIGH FRET Yet again I force your hand to to an open string lick and fret way up the neck. Open string licks are much easier further down the neck where string tension is less. Up way high on the neck they can be trouble. Not for you!! Nice.

PRECISION AND SPEED I see one lick in particular near the end where you keep precision and start speeding up! Nicely done there. Speed is nothing without precision and you show a good of both!

Very well Fought Soldier! You just..

LEVELED UP!!!!

My friend had a saying "Your scars make you stronger" and I sort of stole it. The wrist is healing pretty nicely and I just can't wear my watch yet (I feel naked without it!)



I've been assembling it for the past week, starting when I got home from work, ending when going to sleep. It's made from paper, so it took a great deal of patience and precision.

Corona thing got to my city and the one nearby but it seems to be completely under control because there were no sudden outbreaks after the infected got quarantined. I hope this ends soon, so we can all go back to our lives and the global economy recovers from the blow. PLN has lost some value to Euro and USD but because people only travel to work and the most basic shopping, the gasoline prizes have drastically fallen.
I realized I had to make zero changes to my life to adapt this situation which probably says a lot.

How's the situation at your end? I'm hoping it's okay!

Nice Job on the Mech Build! I loved Metal Gear solid 5. It was one of my faves games ever. I loved the mechs and thought the story was cool tool i remember fighting some of the really big mechs and it seems hopeless, but persistence pays off as it all things smile.gif I built out my military base til it was just crazy huge. Killer game!

I hope your wrist heals up soon! Takes a warrior to play through the pain!!

Let's Debrief!!

MEDALS OF HONOR

SYNCHING SENSATION: Your hand synch is great! Each time you have done one of these your synch has gotten better. This time is no different. Each one of these requires tight synch and you have it!

ETUDE FUN: Several of these at the end are based on classical etudes which are not easy bits to play. These traverse strings and require a high degree of precision. You tore through all of them!

PINKY REVENGE: Your pinky keeps getting better Soldier! This is yet another victory for your smallest finger! I'm stoked to see you ripping it up with pinky!

You nailed it Soldier.

You just Leveled Up!!!!!

Thank you! I'm still in Game 1 and I love everything about it! If you ever get a chance to play it, especially the PSOne/PSX version, go for it! I now see why this game is one of the highest-rated games in history. This series is my only regret about not having a PS3 but I can emulate all the games besides MGS5, which is available on Steam.

I'm still not really comfortable with tapping, so I'm doing those exercises at a slower pace.

I'm trying to make my own music for the game I'm working on and today I came up with a sequence I really like and would like to extend it gradually. What do you think about it? Is the chord progression alright or is it off? I had the recording device quite far from the amp and it was a nighttime, so it's not of the best quality but it's just a sample, so I don't forget the idea.

I like your accoustic bit! When recording clean bits, some folks put an electric clean bit on another track and then record another version with a big of gain but very palm muted so you only hear the pick attack. Stack all those up in your daw and mix them together. The results can be striking!

On to the Mission!

Lets Debrief!

MEDALS OF HONOR


STREEEEEETCH: This first lick has a major stretch in it along with a open string. So there are a lot of things going on and you nail it!!

TRAVERSAL OF FORTUNE: Non stop fret traverse and even string traverse in this one. Your hand has to move non stop. You do it with no problem!

TAPPING TO KILL This is a very tricky tapping lick since it's moving the hands the entire time. Given the difficulty the speed is more than enough.

You got this sorted!

You just..

LEVELED UP!!!

P.S. I'm moving to florida on Tues so I may be out of things for a couple of days but I'll be back!!

Thank you for feedback! That sounds interesting, I'll try that!

I hope it works for you! Sounds like a really BIG change (iirc, you live in Dallas.) The travel itself must have been tiring, even more if you were driving. I learned that many Americans lost their jobs without a prior notification which really sucks and the experts expect that many countries will follow. If that was your reason to move, I hope you'll be able to start over.

We don't have much impact on the future, so let's just stay healthy and survive this difficult time.

THe governor of Florida SHUT DOWN the entire state and put sheriffs on the highway to look for new york plates and stop northerners entering the state. We got eyeballed but our plates said Georgia so it was ok. THe day we moved, the governor declared florida SHUT. It was awful. Everyone had til midnight so panick buyin set in and it felt like a horror film. Almost didn't get our new place. Barely got it under the wire. We are finally here and I have wifi finally so I can be back in the game. Surrounded by boxes. This place feels about half the size of the last one with all these boxes. At least we have family here. That's a good thing smile.gif my aunts, brother, are here.

We have a LOT of covid cases in Florida. I hope you guys are staying stafe and staying healthy. Take care of you and yours. This is a crazy time. Nothing lasts forever, even a pandemic. Fight on Soldier!!

I'm glad to hear you were able to enter the state. USA has this unique policy in this regard. Can't imagine any other country closing down certain regions or imposing a selection of whom they let in because of just the local government's decision. But it's a good thing because it does keep people from travelling without a reason and increase the risk of spreading the infection. People in here started walking their dogs and doing shopping much more often than before, just because they can't stand sitting at home all day. But those who leave home usually take all the precautions. I hope you get used to your new place and I'm happy to hear you're with your family smile.gif

Here in Poland, it seems the government put on a strict set of regulations early enough to prevent a major spread. We were lucky because the opposition parties wouldn't act that boldly and things could be ugly if they were in charge.
Because the economy and job market seems really unstable, I'll keep my both jobs for now, though one of them is really tiring. They both are of the kind that we'd be told to stay at home only in case of greater emergency. The good news is, none of them poses a risk, as the employers took measures to keep the thing going on while minimizing the risk.
My brother, on the other hand, will probably lose his job as a guitar teacher. He has no degree nor any essential knowledge but he was still able to teach kids simple songs. Now that the schools are closed down, he's at home and refuses to even search for a new potential job. He might move out and live with his girlfriend sometime soon and there's no way he'd be able to support the family like that. I just hope he realizes it before another girl dumps him because of it.

This is my brother's demo which I said I'd share some time ago but forgotten:

It's quite depressing but it helps me understand him a bit more, since he hardly talks to anyone

I'm glad to hear you are not going to lose your job! 10 Million people here have applied for unemployment benefits so far and it's not over yet. Sorry to hear your brother lost his job teaching guitar sad.gif We are having record high levels of unemployment here currently. The only other time we have had this many jobs lost is during the 'Great Depression" when we lost 13million jobs but that took 3 years and we have lost nearly that many in just a few weeks. It's a bit nuts. We have no idea what the long term effect will be. Just hoping for the best.

Thanks for the share! It is a bit of a sad song. I hope he can start teaching guitar soon again!

Two of my Aunts and my brother lived in Florida so now that my folks have passed away they are the only family my sister and I have left that are close by so I'm glad to be closer to them all smile.gif We found a nice place not to far from all of them. We are in the middle of everybody. My brother is the farthest away at about an hour. I like Florida so far smile.gif Palm trees and sunshine. Still have not made it to the beach as they are pretty much closed.

I imagined it would be huge but I had no idea this problem is that big. The most important thing right now is to stay alive and stay healthy. I know having a job is a basic thing these days but as long as people are alive and well, they can deal with any problem. People will probably prioritize spending money on the stuff that can help them survive, so brands like entertainment may have to adjust their prizes not to lose the customers. My employer went to great lengths to make sure the production can keep going while minimizing potential interpersonal contacts. And so far, we're safe. Our govt. keeps introducing more and more limitations and restrictions but thanks to that, we're not in a bad situation so far. Let's just all pray for the best. The medical staff is working day and night to stop the virus and I suppose they are closer to the solution every day.

I wasn't able to get the used bass I had my eyes on because of the country-wide lockdown but we have more or less the music tracks for the first game we're planning to launch around November. If you're still interested, I would be happy to feature your leads in the game. Let me know if you do and I will send you the tracks.
I was also able to hunt down a few MGS games, besides MG Rising, Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain, so if the lockdown doesn't end soon, I should have something to keep me busy.

I'm glad you've found your new place! Being around one's family is really important and supporting each other makes us human and makes us strong. Especially at times like this! I'm sure you'll have plenty occasions to visit the beach once the crisis is over! Please share a photo or two when you have a chance to go there smile.gif
Florida reminds me of GTA Vice City and it's the only way I could experience anything near visiting the real place.
