Before we move ahead soldier I really want to see you try this drill so find if there are any gaps in your technique/mute. This will impact pretty much everything.

Hello Sarge,

I couldn't work out that lick but I referenced the first mute drill you posted ( https://youtu.be/M4UhF9E8atA ) and also did a double picked penta scale thing. Sorry about the sound sync, it was only the headphone feed from my Scarlett into my laptop.

Cheers

Awesome!! That's what I was hoping to see smile.gif I tried the other drill as an alternate. it's much more complex but covers some of the same ground. I just want to see you mute in action across the strings. The good news is your mute is very solid and you don't drift or lift during your play. You have a very solid muting technique Soldier and this is the very foundation of being able to play well imho. if the mute is bad, you get string noise which never helps during a solo or even rythm.

I liked the penta lick as well but I must say I did notice a bit of drift in terms of your picking. Your mute is solid as a rock but I can see a bit of hesitancy on your picking as if your picking hand is not always sure which string it's meant to be hitting. This is quite normal on these types of licks where it's mult strikes combined with traverse and I"m sure we can work it out as wel go. Your mute is solid, the rest we can fix on the way!!!

Thanks Sarge,

The hesitancy on the picking could be because I was just winging it and didn't really have a plan. As I was doing the penta thing I was thinking, "shall I do a straight double picked scale run or go back and forwards across the strings?".

Cheers

Soldier well done on playing these at all given your injuries. This requires a HUGE stretch and I'm thinking you may be in pain while you are playing these bits. If that is the case I'd like you to change to adapt them to your physical limits. E.G. reduce the number of frets involved or play the entire thing higher on the neck so that your not forcing your hand in to a super wide stretch which will aggravate your injuries.

After seeing how well you picked the first bit in your last demo video, I think your mute / picking is better than is on display in these two drills. Mod both of these to just have less of a stretch. I notice in the first one that you are moving your hand a bit more than I'd like to see as you play. The idea is to plant your hand and just tilt it to reach the low all the way to the high string. Put it dead center and tilt up to reach the low e and tilt forward to reach the rest. however, if this is not physically possible, please let me know and we will just move on.

In the second one, I notice that you lose your mute and I start hearing some string noise in the middle. This is a mute drill created for the purpose of showing any gaps in the mute. The finger part is really there just to distract you so that I can see what you mute hand does while the brain isn't thinking about it.

Give me one more on these two and just reduce the stretch, center the hand on the bridge and see if you can eliminate any string noise. Let me know if this is possible!

Onward!

Sarge

Hello Sarge,

Here is another attempt, I think I need to get another seat for my holiday home, this one is a little too low so I can't position my right hand how I'd like meaning I'm having to slide across the strings a little with my muting hand.

Good progress Soldier! BOOTCAMP is all about progress and you've made very good gains. Your picking/muting is improved and your finger dexterity is better as well. I know this has got to hurt a bit given your current injuries so well done on sticking it out and playing it as written. it's meant to force the hand to a crazy stretch while the muting hand tries to keep up with muting and picking. It's a lot to put together at once. You did a great job on this Soldier and you are ready for what comes next!!

Thanks Sarge, onto the next one.

I think maybe you should see the squadron medic for an eye test and maybe take Gab with you wink.gif

There is a big hint here https://youtu.be/v6BYqibvCw4?t=64

As we say here, you should have gone to specsavers wink.gif you'll know what I mean if you watch the short videos here https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_fo...st&p=789562

All in good fun Sarge

Take care

Phil

I know the feeling Sarge.

Regarding the badge download, I'm fine with how you've always done it, Chrome still allows a save as jpg or png, it's only Firefox that is funky. Thanks for putting the separate download though, I just don't want you to have extra work wink.gif

Cheers
