Muris I have a technical question for you. I've been studying your playing a lot as you know.....especially your right hand. One thing I've really noticed is that when you do legato runs it seems to me that most of the time use use upstrokes with your picking hand. I haven't had any problems with my legato but I was wondering if there is a reason for this or if it is the most comfortable motion for you? Probably a silly question but I was wondering about it just the same. smile.gif

It's been quite a while since I've worked on any of your cool phrasing lessons as I've been really trying to fill some voids in my technique so it's been fun working on your Mixolydian lesson.......I'm gonna dive into your Mixolydian Intermediate as well......both are so cool.... smile.gif

Thanks Muris.

Hi Monte. smile.gif

You don't have to bother that much with your picking when playing legato,
there is probably plenty of time to pick a note since we usually play at
least 3nps if not even more.
Upstrokes only, downstrokes only, combined, it really doesn't matter imo
is long as it sounds ok.
And to be fully honest with you I never even thought of that. laugh.gif

Thanks Muris.....I thought as much but I was just curious. I'll upload takes of both lessons this next weekend. It's good to get back to practicing some of your lessons. I was getting tired of AP excercises..... tongue.gif laugh.gif They have really paid off though.....at least I think they have. You can tell me next weekend.... smile.gif

Quick update Muris. I have learned all of the Mixolydian Intermediate and Advanced lessons and I am also working on your Bb Minor Intermediate lesson. I'm pleasantly surprised with my AP progress. I am able to play most of the AP licks cleanly up to tempo. There are a few licks that are difficult but I am working on it. I've noticed that alot of the Mixolydian AP runs are phrased in 3rds.....I haven't really practiced these but they are coming along nicely. These lessons are just what I needed after doing nothing but technique excercises for like 4-5 months. smile.gif

The string skipping legato/AP lick in the Mixolydian advanced lesson is kicking my butt to.....but I'm working on it. Should be a good weekend for posts for me..... smile.gif I forgot how cool your phrasing is Muris.....you are so creative with your playing.....\m/\m/

I've never really triead a legato/picking lick like this. Any tips with picking direction or anything???? 16th note triplets at 170 bpm..... blink.gif huh.gif You're killing me.... laugh.gif laugh.gif

Ahh, that lick is very Gilbertish one. smile.gif
I guess it might help you if you focus more on accents
and accents should be on 1st and 4th note on each string.
Picking pattern goes like this:
down (accent), up, down, up (accent) and then 2 pull-offs.
Those 2 pull-offs should give you enough time
to place your picking hand on the next string that you play,
let me know if I missed something. smile.gif

Hi Muris,
Well as you are aware they are reorganizing the MTP here and that means that somebody else needs the chance to be mentored by you......I've had that great opportunity for the last 5 months. My only goal for MTP with you was to get my AP issues resolved. I've done that.....I still need work but my AP is 100% better than when I started and even more important is that I feel I have a very solid practice routine in place to develop it even more. Maybe someday I will even be able to play the string skipping lick from your lydian advanced lesson......you know the one I'm talking about.... laugh.gif laugh.gif

Hopefully I can rejoin your group in the future but for now there are lots of other GMC'ers that would like the chance to work with you and they should have the opportunity.

My focus for the rest of the year is going to be your Intermediate and advanced Modal serials......you'll be seeing me post them in the REC so hopefully I can get some feedback from you there.

Thank you SOOOOO MUUUCCH for you help Muris......You have helped my playing IMMENSELY.....I'll never be able to thank you enough.

Your Humble Student

Ahh Monte, that's VERY kind of you and I'm sure
many GMCers will appreciate that cause I surely do! smile.gif

It's been a great ride whatsoever,
I've indeed enjoyed all of your progress during last few months
and you HAVE progressed a lot.
Ofc there is alwyas room for more progress and you nicely mentioned that,
I'm very glad that I eventually pointed you in the right direction,
keep working as you did so far and you'll surely get on very high standards!

All the best Monte, it has been a pleasure,
I'll see you around the forum ofc and who knows,
maybe you'll jump into my MTP once again, take care. smile.gif
