Hi Gabri,

i'm due an update! sorry was a bit busy so didn't post much but still managed to find some time to practice.

the Eric Gales bend masterclass continues to keep me busy but I think I'm finally starting to get the bends, I think my ears needed more training...

Anyways some bends are not perfect but I think bend wise should much better then my last one.
Rhythm-wise still a few imperfections but I was really focusing one bends here.

What do you think?

also making progress on a couple more lessons , so will share first takes for feedback soon (Metallica one)

the "left hand focus I" and "Right hand II" are really good set of exercises, currently practicing both need a bit more time

Best,
Claudio

Hi Claudio! Great to hear from you!

I have to say that this new take shows many improvements in rhythm and bending. There is still work to do, and now I think that your ear is much more trained to recognize the bends that are missing or not reaching the right pitch.

But the good news is that this new take shows very remarkable progress.

Looking forward to your new takes.

Congrats!

Hi Gabri,

OK glad you also hear the improvements on the Eric Gales lesson. I continue to work on that and hopefully improve my hit ratio on bends, I'm learning a lot with this lesson for sure.

so here is my 1st attempt at the Metallica lesson, which is good fun to play.
It is still a little rough, playing at 130 bpm (instead of 140 orig for now).

What I know is wrong is:
-melodic slow part is not perfect in this one time-wise, I think I rushed it.
-there is a little string noise and random mistakes here and there which should disappear with more practice/better muting.

Other than that I thought it was a good starting point to get your feedback on the many things I'm sure I can improve!

thanks in advance

Hi Claudio, great to see you playing this one!

There are basically 2 things that I can add to the 2 that you noted:

1. The first one is timing. This problem is more important in the first section. The first riff is not tight yet and so you need to focus on that. This happens when the drums cuts, but also while the drums play the groove. You move from going after to before the beat, whereas this style requires to playing strictly "on the beat".

2. The second one is the sound of the second part where you have to combine palm muting with power chords. I notice that many power chords are not sounding clear there and that this part is not sounding consistent. You need to polish it and the best way to do is to slow down and practice at a comfortable tempo.

Hi Gabri,

I worked a bit on the Metallica lesson lately. Still work to do to make clean but I think the timing is getting better.
I'm at 120bpm vs 140 original here for now.

What do you think?

Continue to practice the EG licks as well which is really helping my bending, will hopefully shave a video at some point.

Best,
Claudio

Hi Claudio!

Yes! This is getting better! Your overall timing is good here. I think that the part that needs more attention is the one that starts at 00:52. Please isolate that section and work on it for a few days before increasing tempo.

The lead section sounds good, but you still need to improve the trills (legato) parts. Create small blocks to work on this parts as exercises (and make variations).
