Check out the metronome lesson of Kris, which perfectly showes how to play triplets, and how not to play them. Really worthwhile doing that smile.gif


Roger, thanks for suggesting that lesson (i know you already did once or twice before, but I finally watched it and paid attention). After watching it a couple of times and then listening to my take on this exercise, I realized how wrong my attempt at playing triplets was. Actually, after watching that lesson i see how much work I need to do on timing. I'll be doing the examples from that lesson everyday for a while now biggrin.gif

I'll try to record another take tonight, but I not sure if that would be 100% possible. So if not tonight, definitely sometime tomorrow.

Hey Roger, I got another audio take of the rhythm tab again. its at 75 BPM once again, and I think I fixed my problem on the triplets from the first take, i hope biggrin.gif If not, let me know, I must be misunderstanding something horribly haha.

I really do apologize for the harsh tone, I recorded without the audio input on, and after I mixed it down I listened and couldn't figure out why it sounded so bad. I just now found out that my wah pedal was on by mistake, and along with the GTR Solo amp software on my computer, it didn't sound good at all laugh.gif So my apologies if it makes your ears cringe.

We are getting there! smile.gif

Your sound was indeed horrible tongue.gif tongue.gif tongue.gif , but I survived it smile.gif

The main thing is that your triplets sound much more like triplets should sound like, which is a good job! What I still noticed however is that you still tend to let the first note of the triplet sound a tiny bit longer than the other 2 notes (not much, but a little). In essence, you only should play 12 notes in 1 bar in the same way as you play 8 notes in 1 bar if you play eight notes, using alternate picking all the way.

As a little sidetrack:
You can basically play triplets actually in 2 ways (either alternate picking during the whole lick or start with a downstroke, upstroke, downstroke and then the next triplet start over again: downstroke, upstroke, downstroke). You will notice that it will accent the first note of each triplet more if you play it like the latter.

Anyways, you certainly got the point how to play notes with different notations with a metronome, just keep practicing the triplets along with the other durations regularly.

It would now be a good time to go back to the original assignment and play the group exercise once more (which should not take to long to do I guess) to see whether it actually improved after this timing exercise smile.gif.

After that we can swiftly move on to something you probably like: Rockin'! smile.gif

Cheers
Roger

Thanks Roger smile.gif
About the bad tone, I just realized the the light to one of my overdrive pedals died, so it was on along with the wah pedal, and then I had an overdrive and a light reverb on in my GTR amp sim, that was what made the horrible tone. It took me a while to figure out the light died, I don't know how, I guess its old laugh.gif But I won't make that mistake again.

I will keep working on the triplets, comparing this last take to Kris' lesson I can tell that the first note of the triplets is just a bit longer, I've thrown that into my daily routine now when I pick up my guitar (and metronome now too! biggrin.gif ), so it shouldn't take long to get it down.

I am working on the group assignment again based on your SI lesson, I've memorized the shapes for the first video of that I did (the C-Shape based arpeggios), and I've been playing them non-stop for the past few days to figure out the best and fastest transitioning fingerings for me. I'm doing it pretty well, I'd actually say very well, at 60BPM, I bumped it up to 65, and a little at 70BPM last night. That has been going ok, the only thing that is holding me back is transitioning quicker and smoother from the 1-3-2 frets on the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd strings to the 3-2-4 frets on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th strings, but it took me a whole day, and part of another day, to get that transition right just at 60BPM, so its coming along. I'm confident that i will at least have it at 65BPM, hopefully 70, by Friday, which is when I'll post up another take on it. I've been busy with some computer programming assignments for my class, as well as a test in the same class next week, but I somehow managed to get Friday off, so I have the whole day to play my guitar.

I think I will also be able to record another attempt at Muris' Strumming and Arpeggio lesson as well. I've been practicing that as well and its coming along good at 50BPM, the only transition that still gets me is the F barre chord
still. I just can't get to it quick enough, but everything else is good. What I notice that Muris does a bit in the video at that chord is that he's already beginning his strum at the 6th string while getting his other fingers in position so by the time his strum is coming to the 5th and higher strings his fingers are set. I've been trying to accomplish the same thing, but barring the 1st fret, beginning my strum, and getting my ring and pinky fingers (my 2 weakest fingers still) into position at the appropriate frets, while also maintaining the proper rhythm is still a little too much thinking and action for me at one time biggrin.gif Of course, Muris' skill level is light years ahead of mine lol, he is a master of his craft.

Oh yea, sorry for posting the past couple videos in this thread, I completely forgot about my upload thread.
As far as theory readings, I've finished with the Seventh Chords and Triad lesson by Andrew, what should I begin to look at next? I was already pretty familiar with those two topics, but the lessons definitely help refresh my memory, and give me a good place to go back to when I need to read up on them again.
Well, sorry for the long lecture laugh.gif , I'm just a little excited now that I notice a little improvement in my playing, not much, but its baby steps that help me progress. Good call on the metronome lesson again, I think that definitely got the ball rolling with my improvement smile.gif

Hi Luey,

Here is your second individual assignment for the MTP:

Assignment #2 - Farmer Joe

Lesson
We are going to continue to work a bit on your solo abilities to give you a bit more variation in your practicing.

I have chosen for a nice melodic solo, which is using pretty much the whole fretboard, but which is timing wise quite straightforward: Jumping Around - Muris Varajic (beginner).

What I would like you to do is to record a take, and the backing speed which is do-able for you of bars 1 to 9 of the solo (until 0:32 of the video). I have highlighted the part of the tab which you do not need to play for now.



You will notice that Muris is using quite extensively vibrato on all the long notes. Of course it would be great if you could try to do that as well, but don't let this be the major focus of the take. For now, I would like you to focus completely on playing the notes on time. Try as much as you can to follow the picking pattern that Muris is using (mostly downstrokes, however sometimes alternate starting with a downstroke or an upstroke).

Watch the video several times before starting to play this (in order to get the feel and picking patterns clear), and practice/memorize the patterns at a slow pace before practicing them at final speed.

Deadline

I would like you to upload a video of this lesson in your own upload thread at Monday 6 Apr if at all possible. Also if you have any questions, just ask them in this thread.

I hope you like it and good luck!!!

Hey thanks Roger. Looks like a good lesson, it'll add some fun and variety to my practice routine. I've already memorized the part you want me to play, now to practice it for a few days to a metronome then backing track smile.gif One question though, can you explain bends to me? Or are there any articles or lessons that explain this topic? I'm at work right now and haven't had time to search yet. I mean, I know how to bend, but I don't know much when it comes to how much to bend, like a half bend, full bend, 1and 1/2 bend and so on.
Thanks man smile.gif

In this lesson you have 1 bend, 1 full bend from 13th fret on the B string (which is the C note). This means that you have to bend the C note to a D note. In order to get this right try to practice the bending of this C to D note by alternating between bending and playing the 15th fret on the B string. That way you can make sure than you pitch the bend right!

You can also practice this on other strings, other places etc. so you get a good feeling how to bend in tune.

Hope this helps.

Cheers
Roger

Ahhhh I see. A full bend basically means to bend up a whole tone. So I'm guessing a half bend is a half tone and so on. If I got that right, then cool smile.gif
Thanks Roger, appreciate the help

Hey Roger, I may need 2 or 3 extra days with this lesson. To tell you the truth I haven't really played it much besdies just memorizing the part you want me to play. I've been more into writing my part for the Soul collab biggrin.gif
I will practice this lesson a bit today, if things go well, I may be able to get a take up on Tuesday, if not, then either Wednesday or Thursday

That's perfectly fine, if you need any help with the Sould collab give me a shout and we can work on it together for a bit! I am flying back from Philly tonight, so will be with my guitar finally tomorrow again.

I think it is great that you signed up for that one! One advice: don't worry too much about impressing everyone with as much notes as possible, I would rather like to see only a few notes which are melodically connected and nicely played (with as good as possible vibrato e.g.)! smile.gif

Cheers
Roger

Ok cool, I figured this would be a good reason to delay the assignment, it still has the soloing aspect to it smile.gif And that sounds great, I'm sure I could use some help on the collab. I'm going to work on it tonight, so I'll let you know if I come up with anything. And yes, I was planning on keeping it simple, I don't think I would be able to "impress" with my "speed" at the moment anyway laugh.gif

I won't be able to post a take today, Roger. Something worked up my allergies and sinus pretty bad early yesterday, so I've just been pretty much knocked out in bed from allergy medication yesterday and today, but I'm up and better now. I'll start to write up a part in a few minutes and hopefully I can have it done by tomorrow smile.gif

Don't worry Luey, take your time smile.gif

Hey what's up Roger? Just wanted to give you a quick update on my individual lesson smile.gif
I think I've got the timing down pretty good so far, the lesson isn't at a very fast as far as bpm or note lengths, so that wasn't too hard. I haven't recorded a video yet because I still can't get the bend correctly everytime I play it, sometimes it's just right, but other times it's off. I just want to take the rest of tonight to keep practicing that bend.
The vibrato I believe is decent, definitely not anywhere near Muris, vibrato in the lesson, but I believe a lot better than what I have shown in the past. I'm trying my hardest on the vibrato, especially since I know you've been working on vibrato for a while now, so I figure you'd definitely be a good judge on the topic smile.gif
So if I see a nice improvement on the bend, I'll have a video up sometime tomorrow after work
