Haha, thanks for the help Can! Only had my first driving lesson yesterday, so will probably give it at least a few days before giving that a go tongue.gif

Sorry to break in buddy, but you got me with this question laugh.gif

Find a wide and empty road closed to traffic

Speed up around 50 kph, push the clutch down, drop the gear, but dont release the clutch, turn your wheel like 130 degrees, when your car have reached a 90 degree turn (you are facing the sidewalk) pull the hand breake (push the button on it and dont release it!) when your car reaches near 160 degrees start to correct the wheel position. When you reach 180 degrees, release the handbreak, release slowly the clutch and hit the gas biggrin.gif

that is how its done, and in some extreme conditions where you can do nothing else(like about to crash) it may save your life, I really believe it must be a part of basic driving lesson not a part of advanced driving technics lesson. Dont perform it anywhere in traffic though, but it is good to know how its done biggrin.gif


sorry bondy and adam, keep up the good work laugh.gif

Nice work man smile.gif All the right note's and correct fingering. I found this piece really fun.
I would just say to concentrate on the timing of the notes, you tend to speed up the pull-off notes and the hammer-on's a little bit. Each note played has to ring for an equal amount of time to get the right feel of the piece smile.gif

Oh and, THANKS!!! biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif For getting me to the final 5 man! We did it!

I return! Sorry for the break in my activity, had a bit of a busy week this week.

So here's the golden question, how's your progress going? I'll probably wait and see what the advice is for how the MTP is to progress, whether or not to continue in the forum or via the practice agenda, before posting further lessons.

In the meantime, it would be great to know if there is anything in particular you've discovered in the last few weeks that you would like to focus on, or even something that we haven't worked on yet but would like to.

Let me know!

Hey Adam I would love to carry on if we could, One thing i have found out is my Legato sucks and i would like to do something along those lines. My practise this week has sucked because I have been working long hours this week, hoping to get some major practise in over the weekend though. just Sarted Muris's Paul Gilbert lesson I know its way advanced but i'm enjoying trying to learn it. smile.gif

Legato hey? I think we can manage something along those lines smile.gif I should be able to give you a couple of exercises tomorrow to keep you going untill the next stage of the MTP kicks in.

Muris' Paul Gilbert lessons are awesome, I haven't attempted any yet - but you just might have got me interested in doing so...

I would never say to anyone that something is "too hard" or too advanced for them to practice. In my case it always helped setting goals high, it might take longer to get to them - but the bigger the challange the bigger the reward!

Just make sure you take it slow, and if you have any issues or questions when playing, give me a shout or ask muris on his forum if you want advice straight from the master himself smile.gif

Feel free to post any video's of your progress!

Exercises would be cool i really loved your sweeping and alt picking exercise's, here is a take on my progress on the Paul gilbert lesson i have only been practising it for a couple of hours so don't be to harsh, as i said my legato is really bad but i'm sure you can put my on the right track. biggrin.gif

Sorry for the delay mate, promise it'll be back to usual come monday! It's been ONE BUSY WEEK! heh smile.gif which I'm really not used too, so not the best time manager!

Anyway, for a few hours practice thats really fantastic progress with the PG lesson. Really good bend vibrato in there on that one lick too! That for me is the best skill to develop early on to make anything sound good, well done with that!

I notice you have a little problem with normal vibrato, so I could give you a few exercises that focus just on them, and some legato as you suggest. These aren't song style exercises, but will really help in finger muscle development for use in the song lessons here.

Sound good? - I'll be able to post them on monday if thats ok with you.

Good work mate smile.gif We'll keep pushing you along at a comfortable pace, we'll pretend this week was a break tongue.gif

Again, sorry for the delay mate. Been a bit crazy lately, which is very unlike me!

I remeber we talked about legato, and exercises to increase your legato ability.

Well I have two suggestions, one is from a GMC lesson source by Ian Bushell called Legato Stamina which can be found here - https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/legato-stamina/

Otherwise my personal recommendation for songs that exist outside of the GMC world, would be ThunderStruck by AC/DC!

This is what I first practiced as legato exercises, and its very fun at slow and fast tempo's so a great one to learn in my books!

I think I'll stick with GMC's policy regarding CopyWrited materials and if you want me to point you in the right direction towards a GuitarPro tab that's accurate for ThunderStruck, please PM me your email address and I'll send one over to you smile.gif

I personally don't feel anyones expected to play that kind of legato playing without muting the strings to make it easier for themselves smile.gif What I do for thunderstruck is literally hold the two adjacent strings with my right hand, allowing just the G string ring (is that the one? Or is it B? I forget).
