Like this?



Accents are fine but you're not keeping pure AP all the time I think,
specially after beginning of ascending part,
what you do is that you play last 6th note in group
with an upstroke (which is ok) but then you continue with an upstroke
for 1st note in next group, that might be easier cause it's less movements
but it breaks your picking scheme a bit and leads to sloppy picking.
Focus on each 1st of 6, play them with accent as you did
AND with downstroke, that should work pretty fine to clean things up nicely. smile.gif

Probably cause you've been focusing more
on fingering an notes, might be.
You don't have to post new take every time we discuss tho ( which is great!! ),
I just wanted to gave you few insights for better
execution of the whole lesson. smile.gif

Could be. smile.gif
I don´t have any problems with posting a lot of videos. biggrin.gif I think it´s a fantastic help for both of us to discuss some issues.

BTW, I have to tell you 2 great things. First, Kris allowed me to be an instructor and student (in order to participate in the MTP, collaborations, etc.) at the same time. I want to be instructor because I want to get some money for my university years. Second, I think I found my university: BIMM Brighton smile.gif Guees who´s a teacher at this school? This mister. laugh.gif

Thanks! smile.gif I just sent my application to Kris... I hope he´ll accept.

Anyway, here´s my solo over the blues BT. I guess there are not enough bends, or? biggrin.gif It was also a bit improvised.



I just noticed my funny movements and faces. laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif

Bends were very fine tho I expected some extra vibrato too,
apply more next time, ok! smile.gif
Oh, one thing, at approx 0:29 you played repetitive lick
using F#,A, and C notes, that would would perfectly over D7 chord
but you had G7 in progression, go for F note instead. smile.gif

Muris, what about developing my composition skills? smile.gif I have two days of holidays left and I want to spend them on music, especially composing. Just tell me what style, etc. and I´ll try to do it in those 2 days.

Sure thing, why not!

You can try to make a simple backing , don't bother a lot with arrangement,
focus on progression and lead line of course.
Pick any style you want tho, all works fine for me! smile.gif

Status: I started doing a BT yesterday, but I´m not satisfied with it. I think I´m gonna do a new one on rock style. smile.gif Today, I didn´t practise much the MTP stuff. Instead, I rearranged Canon Rock which I´m gonna play in the Talent Show (instead of Blue Note in A sad.gif).
Tomorrow, school begins, so I´ll have much less time... However, I´ll try to find as much time as possible for music. smile.gif

Cheers!

Muris, I just recorded my take on "Canon Rock". It´s not really good, I´m tired and didn´t practise some places much, but I just wanted to get some hints on performance. smile.gif It´s set as private, so only you can see it! biggrin.gif

Well, the only hint I can think of is to learn it properly
and clean up all tricky parts, like the one when you stopped playing.
Locate those sections and do them one at the time,
sweeping lick in the break must be a lot more articulated (A major I think),
spend few hours just on those 3 shapes if needed!
And watch out on timing, I'm not sure if you can hear
backing properly when you record,
maybe if you set volume of backing bit louder might help. smile.gif

Yeah, I know that a lot of parts new polishing. biggrin.gif I tried to make the BT louder and it helps. smile.gif
Anyway, could you give me some hints on performing? I mean what could I do instead of standing there and staring at my fretboard. Sometimes, I feel so unnatural on stage... unsure.gif

Hmm, well you can't do a lot on performance indeed
until you nail the piece 100%, otherwise you can jump around
and make grins but it'll be sloppy, no doubt!
However if you really wanna see how you look on the stage
when you ARE ready to play what you play
then you could play something lets say "easy" or anything you feel comfortable with,
record it and we'll discus it, why not. smile.gif
