Yes, basically we worked out through CAGED patterns, on different tempos. The last assignment was to improvise over a more complex backing track with some modulations , naming the used mode. It was Am, Dm7, E7, Am and so on. I should use A aeolian, D dorian, E mixolydian and so on.
I can post this video on this assignment during this week and then we move forward.

As I posted before on the other thread, thanks to mtp last year, my improvisation skills improved a lot. Now, if possible I would like to focus somehow on perfecting alternate picking and speeding it up a lot.

Since the month is already well advanced, I think we can work on a "not so complicated" lesson for REC, right? I thought of your riffing variations lesson, recently posted.

Ok I get it. GrindGuer is also doing that assignment now. After you post that video we can move onto the picking exercises. My riffing variations is ok. I am here to help with anything you might ask. Just make sure you use correct fingering and palm mute where you feel it should be muted. That's a bit tricky with fingering but it's a great exercise. you don't need to pass that REC but you have to submit it so don't worry much smile.gif

Check how Maharzan did that modal assignment in 16th notes. You can play 8th notes that will be ok.
