Hey Monte-

As you and I don't need an introduction but I will post my goals for you and answer your questions.


1. Very Limited but have started to work on this knowledge.

2. Counting is a new to me also but working on it.

3. A couple of lessons come to mind..
https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/solo-guit...loing-advanced/
https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/solo-guit...d-fusion-shred/

4. MY name is Dan and I live in Cleveland, Ohio. My main goal is to get my ideas floating in my head to my guitar and develop the techniques for me to get there. I am very basic lead player but an expiernced rhythm player. Hopefully by the time the MTP is in full force I will be able to accomplish what I have set out to do.

Let's get this rolling! smile.gif

Hi Dan,
For your video upload this week I would like you to upload a take on the tapping licks from your day 1 tab. Play them in time with a metronome as written in the tab. If you have questions on this let me know. Lick 1 is phrased in 16th notes and Lick 2 is phrased in triplets. Lets put the tempo somewhere between 40 and 60 bpm. Wherever you can play it the cleanest. I want you to really concentrate on your right and left hand muting on this. Next week I am gonna have you upload the same licks but I am gonna make you phrase them differently. Should be fun. smile.gif LIKE A RAT ON A CHEETO BUDDY!! laugh.gif laugh.gif

Dan if you could post the legato lick that is phrased in quintuplets that would be nice as well. That way you have triplets, 16ths and quintuplets covered. So that is 3 licks you need to post for this week. 2 tapping licks and the quintuplet legato lick. Thanks dude! smile.gif

Alright Dan, you and I talked tonight and we have decided to change a couple of things for your post for this week. For your post this week in addition to the group assignment here is what I want you to see.

The A Ionian box ascending and descending played in the following different phrasings:

-quintuplets at 50 bpm

-16ths at 50 bpm

-8th note triplets at 60 bpm

Look forward to your post.

I think I still need a bit of work with these Monte. Im posting my video tonight becasue I got family stuff going on this weekend and not sure I will be home on Saturday.

I still need some work with these but its becoming a tad easier everytime I pick up the axe.

Good work Dan!! The only thing I would suggest is that you are rushing just a little bit on the descending scale when playing the quintuplets. I think what is going on is that it is easier for you to descend the scale then to ascend so you are just rushing a little bit. I know this sounds weird but I still want you to so the 40-50-60-70-40 bpm workup that we talked about the other night. Playing really slow like this forces you to dial in on the metronome because the tempo is so slow. Keep working on the counting and I don't want you to bump the metronome past 70bpm until I see your video next week. I want you to really get comfortable with these tempos before we start working it up. I want you to focus on this same excercise for next weeks video as well. If possible Dan, I would really like to see you pick one of those tapping licks and phrase it using triplets, 16ths, quintuplets and 16th triplets if possible and post in your video too. This will be really good for you getting used to instantaneously switching between the different note values. smile.gif

Good job Dan. smile.gif You really need to focus on all the things you know and can do right now that you couldn't just 2 weeks ago. You didn't even know what a quintuplet was or the Ionian box and now you are breezing through them. smile.gif Remember, ACCURACY first and speed will come as a by product!! Good work man and have fun with the family this weekend. smile.gif

BTW, your right and left hand muting sounded good as well. smile.gif Dan could you play that same lick using legato instead of AP? If not spend half your time working on playing it legato!! Take if from me, don't neglect legato because you can AP better. smile.gif

I know I don't need to tell you this Dan, but make sure that every time you practice that you go through ALL the licks in the Day 1 technique tab, except the hybrid licks. smile.gif I want you nice and comfortable with those licks so that after next week when you are really comfortable with the different note groupings that we can start going to town on those licks with the Kaz-Box and get them up to facemelting speed. laugh.gif laugh.gif
