Lets get started Sondre!

In your guitar CV you mentioned improving in technique areas. This is why I decided to start with some alternate picking with you. Once we are done with alternate picking I will provide you exercises for economy, sweep, tapping and all the rest.

Here is your 1st assignment :

- Record each lick in 3 different tempos! Make sure tempos are at least 15-20 bpm difference.
- Try to show me your maximum tempo for these licks, I want you to push yourself here!
- Feel free to ask for more exercises if these are too easy for you!
- Upload your takes in this thread. Ideally I would like you to do videos, put them on Youtube and embed them here.

Time limit for 1st assignment would be a week from now(13th of September).
If you manage to do all the exercises before that, I will put more exercises here for you!

I would like you to do all exercises in the same 3 tempos !

Regarding practice schedule, I think you should do this an hour every day if you want to move tempos faster. Even better, do it 45-50 minutes with brake of 10 - 15 minutes. If you do it 50 minutes that gives you 10 minutes per exercise! Plenty of time to learn them all in slow, regular and fast tempo before recording it all.

Let me know if you have any questions Sondre !

Ok, here I am playing at 80 bpm. I am sorry about the autofocus, I will turn it off before next time, and I will get some better lighting. Ill record the other videos soon! Im hoping I can reach 120 bpm soon on all five exercises! smile.gif

Sondre this is good 1st video. Is there anyway for me to hear click while you are playing? Can you put metronome click in the separate audio track from your guitar sound? That would be awesome!
Rhythm could be tighter, you still need to clear this tempo before moving to 120bpm, although I like your goals!

I press record and BOOM, i am wearing gloves... Well, well







Its funny how i fail once I press REC, but I guess i am just not good enough. Looking forward to more assignements!

And I am sorry about missng the metronome clicks, but i just could't figure it out.

Sondre 1st video is almost perfect, I like it more then the 2nd video actually.
Pay attention to exercise 1 when coming back, you added extra 2 beats to that example! Check the PDF file.
Also I noticed when you do exercise 5 that your bend sounds out of tune. This will be good time to pay attention on that and work on it.

One recommendation for overall playing... When you do faster tempos, make sure that you don't lift your fingers too much off strings as you will have lots of trouble syncing your left with right hand. It will eventually lead to missed strokes, or wrong notes which you had in these videos at some times.

Good work overall, I am expecting 3rd video smile.gif

You should work on alternate picking more as you are not always on click when playing. You need to pay more attention to metronome click when playing and where each note should fall in the grouping.

I am giving you 3 more alternate picking examples to add to your practice routine. Make sure you record video as soon as you have something for me!

Let me know if you have any questions,

Pedja
