Hey Muris,

Am back from holidays, so back to practicing the Luke lesson smile.gif. Been playing the acoustic guitar for a whole week playing all kinds of little wing type of improvisation (memorized about 20 new chord shapes all over the neck), which now I am back playing the strat, does give me the feeling that I am making an enormous boost in my playing ability.

I can also manage the Luke lesson at 65 bpm with only a few things to correct smile.gif and will upload a proper take somewhere this week. Have to practice quite a bit for the band as well because we are going to play Little Wing on Friday (and I need to get that in my system for 90% still tongue.gif).

Cheers
Roger

Welcome back Roger!!

Those small chords all over the neck are helpful indeed,
give you better overview when improvising and not just playing chords as they are.
I'll look forward to your new take, see ya soon! smile.gif

Ok Muris,

As discussed in the chat 10 minutes ago, here is a take I recorded this morning which certainly has still several things to address, but I agree it's better to regularly upload something indeed smile.gif

Will certainly try to record a better take soonish, but besides that I would love to also get started with another lesson if you agree?



EDIT: as discussed on the forum.. directions to progress in are those which I don't play often: Jimi-Hendrix like knowing as much chords/riffs (a la little wing) to freely improvise or a bit of hybrid picking or so. On the other hand: I really need to work more and more on rhythmic development as that's something which comes up several times with collabs and such.

Cheers
Roger

There were some problems with timing starting from middle of the lesson
but your bends are much much better and accurate Roger!!
And this Luke lesson ain't easiest one,
all those bends and vibratos are very tricky to handle
for many players, well done so far!

You may continue to work on this and all other lessons we've tried so far,
it's never wrong to play things over and over,
it's just a matter of time when a segment from one or few comes in handy. wink.gif


Here's my Hybrid Picking Beginners lesson,
maybe you are not beginner at this point
but I would love to see how you handle this one
before we start with something bit harder, ok?
https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/hybrid-picking-beginner/
And here is BT for you (let me know if you would like slower one as well) .
Attached File  Hybrid_Picking___Beginner_BT_85_bpm.mp3 ( 1.15MB ) Number of downloads: 1



And as for Hendrix type of chords/riffs,
I do not have any lessons of that kind running at GMC atm,
perhaps you've been working on something similar
that I might correct or give some input? smile.gif

Thanks for the comments Muris, will continue working on that lesson. Would you think this take of the Luke lesson would be REC program proof already?

Will get going on the hybrid picking lesson as well. When I woke up this morning I noticed that I have the flu currently, so not sure whether I can play a lot today, but we will see smile.gif

Well every single take is worth REC imo,
that's why we have grades so you guys could have seen
what are your mistakes and which ares need more improvement.
Tho I believe you can do it a lot better, no doubt! smile.gif

Hell yeah, now THAT was made for REC, post it asap!!! smile.gif
Well you can see how your right hand fingers are nicely curled
and your whole fist looks pretty much "closed", just the way I like it.
Now, it would be AWESOME if you could keep the same or at least similar position
when playing anything else like AP, sweeping etc!!

But never mind, lets go for Hybrid Intermediate, ok?

Well the speed (16th passages) will take time/practice to get used to with hybrid picking, will keep you posted smile.gif

Btw, I had another think what to focus on for the future and I completely forgot about sweeping. I can do a tiny bit of that, but really need more sweeping guidance in order to improve that smile.gif

It's fine the way it is wink.gif .

When I started practicing it at 80 bpm, it was really difficult to get that 'sweeping' motion going (it was more individual picking (economy picking) instead, and at 100 bpm it went towards 'sweeping' more or less automatically (although very unclean and not precise yet). Is that something you would say is normal or should I also be able to get that sweeping motion going with lower bpm's, in order to really start from scratch and build it up?

That's very interesting question Roger.
No matter how hard we try to get "sweep" motion with REALLY slow tempos
it probably won't be 100% sweep in one motion,
simply because there's enough (or too much) time for our picking hand to split 1 motion into 2.
But we still need to think of it as one motion and do our best to keep it that way.
There are some licks (played not so fast tho) over 5-6 strings
with just one note on each string and we still play them with alternate and not sweep picking.
Perhaps it'd sound more "sloppy" and less accurate or tight with sweeping,
there are many reasons. smile.gif

Great. smile.gif

And after reading my previous reply I realize
that I even missed to answer your question properly. laugh.gif

Here it goes!
If you feel comfortable to sweep at 100bpm right now than it's great!!
BUT you should test yourself and slow thing down lets say 10-20 bpms,
sounds weird but sometimes sweeping is easier when played faster.
I said sometimes cause that only applies for those sweeps
that just need to be sweeped as fast as possible,
there is no straight notes values like 16ths, 32ths etc,
it's more like uber fast sweep effect.
But for everything else we should be able to play same thing at speed and very slowly,
cause if we can't play it slow that pretty much means
that we don't understand what is it that we are doing 100%. smile.gif

Quick update just before you're in the plain:

Hybrid picking lesson get's along quite nicely and I will try to record a decent take while you are in London. The sweep picking one is really annoying the hell out of me, but I know I have to keep on doing it and at a certain moment it will all fall into places smile.gif

Practicing the advanced challenge for this month as well to improve my alternate picking skills.

Have a great time in London and good luck! smile.gif
