Comments to assignment #2

Ok, here are my comments to the video you submitted of the Basic Rhythm Guitar lesson of Marcus. As already mentioned before, I am very glad that you persisted with this lesson, even when you felt like you could not do it yet. Sometimes it is good to work a bit above your actual skill level and this example shows that you can actually do it smile.gif

All in all, you did quite well, and actually performing palm muting as well. As you already mention yourself: at certain points it's a bit sloppy and there are some other details to think about as well. So, please see this as constructive critisism which should enable you to improve this part and it is certainly not meant to discourage you in any way (even the list of comments may be a bit long tongue.gif).

1) As already mentioned, you actually performed palm muting during the playing (which is great! smile.gif). Ultimately this is essential in order to perform some 'heavy riffing' which is often used in heavy metal etc.

One thing I noticed is that you lifted your right-hand quite high when you did not apply palm muting, which is of course logical given the fact that this technique is completely new to you. However try to steadily improve on this, and you will notice that at a certain moment you only need to lift the palm a fraction in order to ring the strings properly smile.gif

2) I noticed that generally you switched from rhythmic patterns quite well, i.e. pattern 1 (bar 1 - 4) to pattern 2 (bar 5 - 8), pattern 3 (bar 9 - 10), pattern 4 (bar 11 - 12), back to pattern 3 (bar 9 - 10). However at the end I think you played again pattern 4, while a different pattern was in the lesson (not a big deal, however I thought that I would mention it to you cool.gif .

3) You had some trouble with quickly and with confidence fretting the powerchords, especially the ones without the open e-string (Bb, Gb, Db), especially during the first couple of patterns. Of course this is due to the fact that these chords are new to you, and you had to focus on a lot of things at the same time, just practice this and it will go much smoother in no time.

4) I noticed quite a bit of sliding noise, which is due to the same reasoning as comment 3, but together with some extra muting of the strings during the transition of chords. Again, try to work on this and it will be smoother smile.gif.

5) During pattern 3 and pattern 4 you had some difficulty with grabbing the open Db chord at the end of the '2nd bar'. This is actually quite a hard transition, so don't worry too much about it at this stage.

6) The quicker (16th notes) bass note muted patterns went pretty good, except the part with 6 consecutive 16th notes, as you tended to not perform a steady rhythm there. As with comment 3 - 5: just try to perfect this with quite a bit of practice. It is much more important to get this right at a very slow tempo and then gradually speed it up, than learning it incorrectly (and a bit sloppy) but faster wink.gif

In order to help you bit with keeping exactly in time with all the patterns (especially the 16th notes ones), I have quickly put in the 1st section of the lesson in Guitar Pro 5 (which you see below and attached). I would like to encourage you to actually play along the guitar pro file as you play it in GP. This will certainly help you in developing a more steady rhythm feeling.

All in all, I know that you had a difficult time with this lesson, and you still have quite some work to do on this one, but you made a good start! Keep on going and you will see that things fall into place soonish smile.gif

Please let me know if you found my comments useful smile.gif

Keep up the good work mate!

Cheers
Roger

Thanks for the tips Roger! I am confident that with more practice this lesson will be doable for me. I did notice how high I lifted my hand when I watched the video...never noticed it when I was playing! I am practicing Muris' lesson now. I will have to wait until we get back from Disneyworld to get a video up though...we leave tomorrow morning!

Hi Ben,

How are things going, would you be able to upload a video quite soonish?

I have created my practice agenda for the MTP to continue, as the test-phase of it is currently over. I have copied over all our conversation until this moment, so you can easily refer back to a previous assignment through the practice agenda.

You can find the 3rd assignment + comments here

Once I have been paired up with 4 other mentorees, I will probably start a new category in the practice agenda so we can start all with a fresh mind to continue our journey in the next months to come (of course I will not let you do the same lessons again without any specific focus etc smile.gif).

It would be great if you could visit the practice agenda to show that you found your way there and check it on a regular basis from now on.

Cheers
Roger
