Dan....So here is where I think we are with the MTP and what you should be working on:


Technique Practice:
Stick to your tabs on this and keep working on them. I'd really like to see a video of you playing all the licks at your top clean speed some time so I can see where you are at.

Kaz-box excercise:
I'm not gonna be real rigid on this with everybody but I would really like to see you get 2 up this month. It will help you start to see how you can make licks with the scales and excercises.

Lydian lesson:
I want to see a new take. Sometime this month I'd like to see a take with the alternative tapping lick. I want you to see how you can change these licks and get used to doing it yourself. I want to get together on skype sometime this week and go over a few things about your phrasing that I think will help. Also, break down the picking lick if you need to and do the Kaz-box thing with it if you are having trouble with the tempo.

Lydian collab:
For our collab this month, you and Jer and Marek are gonna solo over Muris's lydian backing for the lesson you guys have been working on. I'm gonna give you plenty of time on this. End of the month would be nice but we'll see where everybody is in a couple of weeks.
Timing:
I'd like to see an updated video of you running through 16ths, triplets, quintuplets and 16th triplets.

I think overall you are doing really well. I just want to see a video of you playing the technique licks so I can make sure you are progressing with them.

How do you feel you are progressing with the following:

Timing and using the Kaz-box?

Right and left hand muting?

The diferent techniques?

Kaz box is going good. I spend about 30 minutes alone on this. To me it is essential to reeally know how to count. I get it now! smile.gif

Muting is ok. Still working on it.

The different techniques I still have problems doing the one LEgato lick that is on the Highe E and B string. I can do it till about 60 BPM's and just fall apart after that. IT almost seems my pinky and ring finger just cant do it. Working on it.

Lydian Collab:That is the one Jer created the backing for right?

Lydian Lesson: I will ahve a new one up soon showing the AP in that lick I used legato. Just an oversight on my part.

Glad the importance of counting is finally kicking in. I knew it would eventually. smile.gif

The lydian collab is just the monthly solo. Whatever backing you want to use. I just want you to start writing a solo. You let me know what backing you want to use.

Can you post a video of you playing all the licks so I can see how they are going? Especailly the legato lick you are having trouble with. Is it the one that uses economy picking with just one note on the B string?

Cool on the lydian lesson. Look forward to your next post.

Dan.....I want you to work on this collab for Pedja. Alternate you practice routine. One day practice your GMC lessons or technique or whatever and the next day just work on this collab. I know you have a newborn etc. So if you don't practice one day or two or three no big deal. I've been there MANY times!! Think of this collab as you working on your creativity and learning your triads and arpeggios. We aren't gonna just stick to triad shapes. We are gonna put the notes on 2 strings, all on one string. We're gonna creat runs with them. I'll show you guys how to do this. I told you in the email that I didn't intend for you guys to work on collabs but this one will be really useful. It is a classroom collab where we are focused on one thing. Chord tones. For writing melodies.....this is where it is at. Sorry that I am coming off like I am "piling it on" but I am not meaning to.

Just alternate your days. You will find that this kind of practice is draining because you are going to be doing a lot of thinking as well as playing. You are gonna learn a ton in the next couple of weeks. The technique stuff will be there when you get back.

Pedja is trying to show us how to create solos intelligently instead of just picking a box and noodling. This will be invaluable.

There.....now your agenda is modified. One day the collab the next day anything else you want to. smile.gif

Dan....That was nice. I think it was better than the first one. More confidence for sure. Your timing looked good too. Good job!!! Keep practicing it and it will become even more comfortable for you. You could try the quintuplet tapping lick for fun if you want to challenge your phrasing skills. I uploade a take of me playing this lesson with the quintuplet tapping lick a couple posts up. Good job Dan....And you don't suck!!! smile.gif
