Here's all of the exercises at 60, 80 and 100bpm.


Matt here are more comments for your exercises!

Ex 1 - 1st tempo catching a tempo and rushing slightly towards the end, 2nd tempo awesome work, rushing and not on click on 3rd tempo.

Ex 2 - 1st tempo quick start rushed a bit, all the rest awesome!

Ex 3 - excellent work !

Ex 4 - started on up beat 1st tempo, 2nd tempo awesome, 3rd tempo slight problems with playing on click.

Ex 5 - rushed 1st tempo slightly , 2nd and 3rd tempo awesome!

Here are 6 more examples for you to keep you busy with alternate picking! After you finish these we will lay low on alternate and work on some other techniques. I will also give you short tests on posts I mentioned before. I hope you have been reading those wink.gif

Matt these are coming together. I think you still need to work on them a bit. Especially last example, you are not doing 8th note triplets on the click well. In other examples you are mostly having problem with very first tempo. You have a tendency to push the tempo ( to rush). So try to correct that. See if you could record these again and correct those mistakes!

Great Matt!

Have you started working on Alternate picking etude at 160bpm?

I've RECed it.

Here's a second take on all the exercises at 50, 70 and 90bpm.

Also, my finger is nearly fully healed, so I'm starting to get my practice back on track, and I will start spending more time on your assignments, and theory questions. smile.gif

I tried practicing them again today at 60, 80 and 100, but I couldn't get the third one clean at 100 so here's a third take of them at 50, 70 and 90.

Also, when I practice these should I concentrate on not lifting my fingers and using small pick movements, or any other aspect of technique?

Very good work so far Matt !
I think you can do better with exercise 8 with those triplets especially at faster tempos. Also practice not to lift to much fingers of guitar strings as it will slow down your technique . This is especially true when you do faster tempos !

Example 10 was good only last tempo, you have problem playing triplets in slow tempo- work on that as well ! (subdivide in your mind always 1 2 3 1 23 ... )

Yeh exercise 8 is really hard and for some reason I can't stay in time with exercise 10 well. Do you think I should just concentrate on those 2 or should I keep practicing all of them equally?

All of them equally Matt but the ones that you notice problems you should definitely do more repetitions. It is all in the mind, if you subdivide melody right and sing it with click, you can play it no problem.

Ok, I'll upload another take of them tomorrow. I think my problem with the slower tempos is that I'm less certain when the click is going to come so I think maybe when I record the exercise I'll try giving myself a longer count before I start playing, unless you think I should be able to do it with just 4 clicks.

Great Matt, do that!
I think 4 clicks is more than enough of count of. It is also industry standard. When you play in orchestra or in a band you get 4 clicks count in before starting a piece. wink.gif

I managed to get a video together this time. smile.gif I think it's getting better but I still have trouble with the 8th exercise at higher speeds.



P.S. I will be out all day tomorrow so I won't be able to post any new audio/video.

Good work Matt! I am very happy to see and hear these are coming together. Exercise 10 was great as you manged to do triplets in time for all tempos. You are already aware of parts that need work in all the exercises. I am glad to hear the improvement in these 10 days or so. I would like you to keep working on them and push tempos further but remember to have them all sound clean no unwanted noise or mistakes.
So far great work!
We will soon move onto Alternate picking etude at 160bpm, I am expecting one more video like this one but with faster tempos and no mistakes in all examples!

Ok, I'll try and get the exercises up to 60, 80 and 100. smile.gif

Also I know you said we'll move onto "Alternate Etude at 160bpm" after these exercises, but I was wondering if you have seen this video I made about a week back. Obviously if you would like me to perfect it etc, then this is irrelevant, but if you thought I hadn't learned it, I thought you might like to see this, in case it changes your plans.



Also, is there any more theory reading you could suggest me?

Great Matt!
I haven't seen this video. Well done. There is two things that I would point out - muting and ending. You are muting really hard during the whole etude so I would advise you let the notes ring out more. Regarding ending, it is not in time rhythmically. Play it with my slow videos and guitar pro file it will help you get it 100% down.
Other then this it was very good cover I like it. You used good fingering and it didn't sound like you were getting stuck at all. Good work Matt!

This definitely changes my plans with you as we won't need to dedicate time to that one but rather spend it on some other area.

I will post a theory and harmony quiz for you tomorrow!
In the meanwhile work on new tempos for exercises. Good job Matt!

Only last example sounds musical somewhat and doable of course smile.gif

What??? unsure.gif blink.gif

Oh, I put the speed up to quickly check I'd played them all cos I had a bit of metronome click left at the end, and I must of forgot to put it down again before I rendered. biggrin.gif I'll re-upload those I think. tongue.gif

Ok, second attempt. Hopefully I'll have better luck this time. tongue.gif
