First of all this lesson rules. tongue.gif

But I have a question, if I play it (and I can now at 100BPM) I CAN play it but the bends are way to short because of the BPM.

Do you play the bends etc longer like 2 beats or something?
I'm playing with a metronome btw wink.gif
Grtz,
Angelo

yep, just use double. You can also see this in the GP5 file I think. If you get confused by this, just get your metronome alongside Gabriel and see what he does. Or play using the backing and just don't use the metronome once. It's more inmportant that it sounds nice than having all the notes perfect but bad sound.

btw dont' you think the first pull part is hard? I can finally play it! I'm only still to slow at the

Man that part is giving me hell too. Are you alternate picking it or just moving the pick down across all the strings? Damn Chuck Berry!

There is not only one way to pick this type of licks. I prefer this picking directions: Down - Down - Up

Gab, I totally LOVE this lesson! biggrin.gif This seems like such an easy lick, but I, too, am having difficulty with it.

I am muting the G string with my index finger but I am getting string noise from the D string when I lift my finger off the 7th fret G string. Should I be muting it with my right palm? Or would just practicing this lick over & over til I get it right, do the trick?

You have to mute the D string with the palm of your right hand, that's the solution!
