HOMEWORK!!!!!

1.)Try to figure out as much of my solo in the vid as possible and record it. Then share it with me for feedback smile.gif

2.)Make up your own solo paying special attention to creating a "theme" or lick that you come back to repeatedly that changes just slightly each time. Share this with me as well for feedback.


UPDATE: SOLO WORK FROM STACEYD!!!!!

*STACEYD did a great job on the solo from this lesson!!! Here is her take.

LEFT HAND PATH

We spend a lot of time on our picking and rightly so. But today, we are going to break with tradition and focus entirely on our left hand. The Left Hand Path is beset on all sides by the inequities of evil but we'll work our way through it together.

*Play all of these using the LEFT HAND ONLY.

We do a TON of AP work for lead stuff. Let's work on some Alternate picking/Economic Picking for rythm/riffage for a bit. Also, let's explore attacking a given lick from an Inside VS Outside picking perspective. First up, here is a riff that started life as a question from another GMCer. I actually played it somewhat different than the original and I think it makes a great workout. Here is a demo.

Was a very good chat yesterday, Todd. Hope your mother is alright. No promises I'll be on tonight though, as my parents are coming by, and even though they will have gone home by then, question is how stressed I will be after! laugh.gif

As said I made a mistake in the tab. Can I just correct it and send it again? laugh.gif

Thanks very much for your wishes concerning my Mom smile.gif I hope this surgery finally gets rid of her Cancer. Enjoy the visit with your folks smile.gif My Mom's illness has again reminded me that they are with us for a short time. Even if they do stress us out quite a bit without trying smile.gif

Thanks for the updated Tab as well! Can you shoot me the GPX file also and I"ll add it to the notes. This will all go in the permanent WIKI record with the rest of this series and be enshrined in perpetuity @ http://bit.ly/twtgmc

There are certain bits that really need you have a firm grasp of "Economic Picking" (Two up or Two down strokes in a row in a picking sequence). The PAUL GILBERT (Much Respect) song "TECHNICAL DIFFICICULTIES" has a bit at the open that is a great example of this.

ARTICUWHAT?
These pieces will help you focus on your right hand work while not forgetting the importance of synching your right and left hand. Don't forget, try to KEEP YOUR PALM MUTE and use mostly the fingers, instead of the wrist for picking smile.gif

Let's break this down and use it to study some ALTERNATE PICKING work. The good new is this VERY VERY SIMPLE to play and sounds like your playing way more than it actually happening.

EXAMPLE A:

The intro lick uses a type of AP we have not worked with very much. I"m using three notes per string but stricking TWICE on the last note only. This yields FOUR PICK STRIKES per string and makes it sound much more busy than it is. This technique is one of the SECRET SAUCE techniques that I keep in my bag of tricks.

SECRETS OF STATIC POSITIONS AND SHREDDING

Let's focus on some "Static" Positions. This simply means using finger positions based on a chordal approach where we will park our first finger on a given fret and fret several strings at once then use the other fingers to dance around it.

I've borrowed this technique directly from MARK KNOPFLER of Dire Straits and just done it a bit more METAL smile.gif

Here is a gal playing this type of thing at :49

BENS EXAMPLE FROM THE SWORD COLLAB


This example from Ben is the Melody Line in the last bit of the Collab and makes use of the technique we are talking about here so it's a great place to start! AND IT USES DOUBLE PICKING!!!

THE RIGHT HAND AND THE KEYS TO THE KINGDOM
You may not know but you already have the "Keys to the Kingdom" of Unlimited Shredness. You just have to pick them up and unlock the gates. Let's focus a bit on the right hand. The "Key" hand. Watch this vid and take note of the right hand position.

***NOTICE MY RIGHT HAND PLACEMENT. Even though we are picking on high strings, my palm still rests on the low strings to keep the mute.
