Good Job Marek. Just need to work on getting your bend up to pitch and then just isolate that last lick and play it with the metronome. Shoot for being able to play it 10-20 bpm faster than the tempo of the song. That way when you go to play it you will be very comfortable with it. Good job......\m/\m/

Hail Monte!

The dread exam session on the university has befallen once again on me, consuming my free time and my very sanity!...
Still true believers of metal shall not yield! And so I recorded takes for both Ivan's and Joe's collabs.

Joe's one

Ivan's one

Unfortunately my main weapon, the mighty Devil Axe is in the hands of a skillful blacksmith that shall enhance it abilities, leaving me with only one option - the old trusty Ibanez RG. First time when I become an owner of the Devil Axe I couldn't tell a difference between these two, but now I can dry.gif tongue.gif

I hope that what I have done isn't below average unsure.gif

PS: talking like a 10 year old metalhead is so refreshing laugh.gif


EDIT: arrrr, I improvised over the Black Stone Cherry collab a bit, here is the rushed result:

Good work Marek.....the biggest issues I hear are timing issues. You have good ideas just need to keep working on your timing with the metronome. I hope you get you beloved Axe back as well.....I love my RG's but I understand about your favorite axe!! Keep working Marek.....you've made a lot of progress!!!......\m/\m/

David started a new collab today, so instead of going to sleep, I recorded something laugh.gif
Here is the link, as there are 2 different takes, one where I used a phaser effect, and one without it. Don't know which one is better, maybe You can tell me wink.gif

I also have some little more concerns/info:

1. my practicing is going relatively well, I more less mastered the pull-off lesson, and still learning the hammer on dude one (the legato parts are learned, but there are some fast[for me] AP licks, and I want to learn them).

2. I bought a new, cool guitar belt, and that finally made me to practice more while standing rolleyes.gif I need to have the guitar quite "high", but I think it is normal for beginner standers?

3. I got my Devil from set-up, and now it is tuned half step down. I don't know what to do with my Ibanez. Should I also tune it half step down, or have one guitar in lower tuning and one in standard? The only really problem arise when there is need of playing open strings in the normal tuning, it is often difficult to play those notes at first fret.
But I could use a capo on my Devil to have the first fret working instead of open string. Don't know which solution is better. On one side, playing in different tunings can teach much, but on the other side if I am going to play 90% time in tuned down one, what is the point of adjusting from time to time to normal one...

Hi Marek.....Sounds like you have everything under control. Keep going on the pull-off and hammer on dude lessons and keep working on the AP. Technique requires constant maintenance. smile.gif

I've never heard of a guitar belt.....what is it. I have to have the guitar quite high as well when I play. Check out John Petrucci.....he wears his guitar high as well and he also had some big metal stands made so when he plays really technical parts he can put one foot on the stands to position the guitar in an even more comfortable position. Robert Fripp performs sitting down.....whatever works for you man.

As far as the different guitars......if you use different tunings it makes more learning for you. Is one a fixed bridge? If so then retuning isn't a big deal. If they are floating bridges then it's not so easy. kind of hard to know what to do.

Good job on your Dorian take.....very melodic...I liked it. Good job.....\m/\m/

I liked the take with the effects on it best. Good job....

Well sorry about wrong word using, here in Poland we call guitar straps - belts, so that's the problem:P
This is my mighty strap, the guitar isn't mine;)



The Devil guitar is fixed bridge, and Ibanez has a floating (not to good I suppose) bridge.

You are right about maintaining other techniques, I spent to much time on legato, and my AP is now bit slower than it was, before I started "legato training". So the only good way of solving the problem is rising the amount of practicing time a bit smile.gif

PS: I wanted to record a mp3 take on hammer on dude yesterday, but after one hour of recording worse and worse takes I gave up laugh.gif Lets hope my brain worked, and now my fingers will remember the patterns better.

I recorded take for REC with Pull-offs lesson, it isn't perfect but I don't think it is very bad also:)


My position seems bit odd, but I recorded so many takes, that I started to stand in different ways, just to see will it work.

Hi there Monte! I recorded two takes of hammer on dude today, I can't nail the lesson, and the more I play the more frustrated I am and more mistakes I make mad.gif mad.gif

One take is more even, another one shows that I can play the more difficult parts correct also, but in this take I make mistakes in the easier parts dry.gif

Attached File  dude2.mp3 ( 889.17K ) Number of downloads: 76

I wanted to take part in Minor Scale and Funky collab, but the amount of studying I am passing through still is so big, that I basically have no heart to do anything. I practice hammer on lesson, and do some other practicing, but the backing tracks just don't inspire me enough to do something:(

My summer seems to be a terrible and lonely time, so most probably I will practice much and record many lessons I practiced in the past for REC...

Maybe you should put aside the Hammer on dude lesson for awhile. smile.gif Why don't you keep working on the petruccifever backing Marek......you seemed to enjoy working on it......just a thought. smile.gif

Eh I wanted to record this lesson finally, but as You can see the speed level is my border and control issues arise.. I hope that the takes I recorded don't sound to bad, do they?? unsure.gif I had a plan to record a better take for petruccifever 30 june, as it is the day of my last exam, so I will have 1,5 half a day before the deadline I think.....smile.gif

It actually sounds pretty good Marek.....just the last third or so where your control issues arise. You just need to spend some time at some slower tempos to fix this. But really you are doing a great job with this lesson......I look forward to hear you work some more on the petruccifever backing. smile.gif

Yesterday evening I recorded a video take of the PetrucciFever contest, unfortunately the quality of the video without daylight is terrible. I hope to record a better take, but I will have time on 30 June, I don't know if I can submit for the contest 1 July also, or is it forbidden in the "deadline day".

Here is the Youtube video:


Most probably playing would be also better on another video, as there are some pinch harmonics that I tried to play, but failed laugh.gif

From time to time I am trying to learn few notes from Jose's "Songwriting Metal" lesson, here is a practice take I recorded also yesterday, I changed the pinch of the backing with a program, as it is in D tuning, and I have Eb tuning.
Attached File  josee2.mp3 ( 1.52MB ) Number of downloads: 79


So for the rest of this month I will most probably play the contest solo/Jose's lesson/Hammer on lesson for most of the time (which won't be very long, but more than an 1 hour I suppose, as I rarely learn late in the night).

What I am happy about, but still need to work on it, is that I am able to hit pinch harmonics most of the time. It is far from good, but much nearer than not so long ago:)

Sounds like a good plan Marek. Your take sounds good.....I would just dial back the reverb some but your timing and tone sound good. Good job.....\m/\m/

As always with exciting collabs, I made a take the same day it is announced.
I have much time to think of something cooler, but recording this take won't make things harder I guess wink.gif

This is very much work in progress.

I am thinking that the "legato" part at the end could be shorter, I mean there could be something between sliding part and legato part. But in the time I had for my practicing today, I couldn't think of a good way of connecting those parts with something nice.

It would be great to here Your take also Sensei! smile.gif wink.gif

I thought the first one sounded the best.....I like the ending part. You did a good job of making your solo fit well with the backing track. I thnk you should work on cleaning it up a little bit and then maybe try a different run at the end. Maybe a scalar thing using the diatonic scale or something. Good job Marek.....you are a very melodic player.......that's the best kind....\m/\m/

Hi there Monte! Very huge thanks for Your kind words:)

Actually I first uploaded only the first take, and edited the post yesterday with another take to show someone else laugh.gif
Now I upload a third take, it isn't clean as I just record ideas, and will have enough time before the deadline to clean things up.

This take is similar to the second one, but I replaced half of the "sliding climbing lick" with a similar but bit different lick. It is quite new idea for me, so it sounds unclean at first, but I think after cleaning it will be better that way, than playing the same "sliding stuff" for a longer time.

Hmm another take with the new thing played faster.

Hi there Monte! Don't know if You saw it in the Iron Maiden thread, so I post it here also, the video take for the collab. Need to add video of the second guitar somewhere in the corner of the main one, but I need to learn it first.



I have some hard times recently, as I stay at work for whole nights lately. I don't have much to do there, so I practice quite much, but my mind is ultra tired and so I don't think that this practicing is of much effect. Anyway I hope to record some takes for REC in the nearest future. To bad that I haven't find enough motivation to try harder on the "your own song" competition, but I am to tired most of the time to focus on learning so much new things at once. I am also looking forward to trying to come up with some solo for the Dream Theater collab, although I listened only one album of theirs, so solo won't be to DT I bet wink.gif

Take care smile.gif \m/

EDIT: oh my, saw my own video again now, gods such an embarrassment:P
