I found another video on Tornado of Souls but this time it shows the learning process. I think it's VERY interesting to watch because until now I've only had my own perspective of learning. It terrified me how he could tell the Locrian Mode right away by just hearing it! He also recognized Harmonic Minor so fast. This scale has distinct tone to it but I would have to break it down and probably play it as a box pattern to identify it.

That's an excelent video! It's very easy to learn and follow the solo from it and it's also a very good ear training. Good job finding it! smile.gif

I can add more lessons over or below the level of these ones, just let me know if you need it.

I think we have plenty to work on for now. I had to take a long break from playing guitar at all, so making up for the lost time could take a while.

I was thinking, maybe You could paste all the lessons we started to the first post, so it's easier to keep track of? I know there's a lot of them and I didn't even finish one of them yet. But that's all the more reason to work harder!

I think if I was to take on any more lessons, it would be definitely on the same level or below until I get the hang of it.

I made a list of all the lessons I'm working on:

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Picking-Hand-Basics/

I was thinking, maybe we could update my Lessons Log in that post, both completed and in progress, if that's not much of a problem for you.

I just wanted to keep you updated about why things progress so slowly on my side: I'm practically done with university now, just minor changes in thesis to make, but I had to re-organize my room and throw away what I no longer need. I want to adapt the room to be a bedroom studio while at it, so it takes a lot of effort. There's a lot to look through.

Also, my collab bits should be up soon-ish.

Sure! I can add it. Please share the current status here and I'll copy it.

I tried it for some time and I know this won't pass REC but probably the only way to pass eventually is to submit fail videos and learn from them.

I found some more lessons that are simple enough for me but I'll try at least pushing the ones I'm already on. I'm happy to say I submitted my finished thesis and I'm waiting for the advisor's response, so it's officially OUT OF THE WAY! I can focus on things that actually matter to me now! smile.gif

Hi Adam!! Congrats on submitting your thesis! 😊

I can see that your take on Picking hand basics is not bad at all. You are getting closer. Remember that you need to record yourself over the backing track for REC. It’s important to know that the main purpose of sharing takes at REC is to receive feedback from different instructors, so go for it!

Hi! I've submitted it for REC, as you suggested.I know it's not a passing take but as you say, the feedback I get is the only way to improve smile.gif Moving on to another lesson while I'm waiting!

Thank you!

I should be have the cover of HIM tomorrow if nothing goes wrong! It all really goes much smoother since I got thesis out of my head.

I was really impressed by your response video to Onetabmat's take in the Collab. I'm not sure if it's the YJM vibe or something else but I'd really love to get to that point in my own playing. The only way is to work hard learning basics one by one and no shortcuts, isn't it? I tried learning sweep picking without these basics and I only wasted my time, so now I'm taking the long way and hope for the best smile.gif

Yes Adam! The secret is to practice every day. I've been a big fan of Malsmteen when I was starting to play the guitar so my main focus was to learn his licks and techniques. Then, I continued learning and exploring guitar. But his style is part of mine.

Being able to play like YJM, or in this genre in general is my long-term goal. I'm trying to listen to Classical music every day, learning theory bit by bit, I've got quite far in Todd's Bootcamp and I'm practicing the lessons on our thread's front page and this is my practice routine, if that's the appropriate name. I don't have a fixed schedule.

If I understood Mr Vai correctly, Learning with guitar is as important as learning without it. His book is a real gem and lately it comes in really handy!

Thank you for the response in REC thread. All is clear and I'll move on to practicing it the way you recommended. I will update my progress accordingly.

There's always the right time to make changes and I'm fired up and ready smile.gif

I shoot a HIM video but apparently the tab file and the song's tempos are a bit different. I'll try again I guess.
