A couple months ago I was playing this Ibanez signature model (KIKO10BP) at our local music shop and I really liked it. My wife and son stopped in while I was playing it after they did some shopping. Apparently they hatched a plan to get it for me for Father's Day. I was super surprised when my 8 year old son walked in with it.

It plays really really nice and so far seems like a fairly flawless build. It's an Indo but a Premium. I'm a big Kiko Loureiro fan but that isn't what drew me to this axe. I liked the feel of the "slightly" thicker neck. It's definitely a noticeable difference with my Jem Jr all around. For some reason I can never take good guitar pics. Anyway, here it is:

Thanks for checking it out !

I finally ordered a couple mods for my Jem Jr. I have the white model. I went with a pearloid pickguard and a Gotoh GE1996T gold bridge. From what I could gather online, this bridge seems to work well save for possibly needing to keep original posts. Has anybody here happened to try this bridge on the Jem Jr. and if so what was your experience? Thanks in advance for any information.

So I've been a member here for a little while and I thought I should probably introduce myself. My name is Bruce Campbell. I live in Nova Scotia, which is on the east coast of Canada among the Atlantic provinces. I work for the Canadian Coast Guard doing application/software development and simulation control/support. I've been playing guitar for many years on and off. I've never really committed myself to the instrument as much as I should have. Lately I've been trying to fix that. I'm so glad I have found this community to help me along the way. Everyone here seems so down to earth and very friendly. The instructors have been fantastic and really give me that drive I need to keep going. So thanks for having me and I look forward to continuing to grow with this great community.

Original lesson: Neoclassical Sweeping & Legato by Gabriel Leopardi

I decided to give this lesson a go because I thought it may help me with my sweeping. I'm still working on trying to get Ostinato Etude up to tempo and also needed to try something else. It's tricky to get this one super clean and up to tempo and also on the beat which I think I stray from here or there. I know I miss the end of the A minor shape hammer on/pull off. The end legato run is also slow and sloppy. I think I am going to try to get a better run at this later this week. Here's my first take anyway. Thanks for viewing and for any feedback.

Original lesson: Ostinato Etude by Piotr Kaczor

So I'm still working on this exercise when I have the time. I still cannot play it up to 100bpm but this take is at 96bpm. I still miss some notes and maybe fall out of time around the key change. The last sweep is pretty horrible. I feel as though I am making some progress though. I still drop that bar dive in there ;). When I post my final take at 100bpm for grading, I'll be sure to remove that. Sometimes when I hit that record button my nerves get the best of me but I know that I still need more practice with this one and I will eventually get a clean play through at tempo. Determined. Thanks for watching. -Bruce
