TO PICK OR PULL?

Some licks work well when picking every note (palm mute every note lightly in this entire session) and work as well when pulling off some notes. Let's work on some of these. The picking is often "inside picking" so it's a good chance to work on that as well smile.gif Let's start slow.

Left Only? Nope Both!
Le's continue our work from last time and expand on it. First, let's remind our muscle memory about the Strike once (open string only) hammer man (fretted strings) approach and then add the right hand in on things to get it a bit more interesting smile.gif

Thanks for sticking it out!! smile.gif I made a video about how to change google hangouts audio from "voice" to "studio" so that it stops trying to manage the volume for us!!! Here is the vid. Watch it full screen so you can see what's going on.



I'm going to try a quad processor computer next time with 16gb of ram instead of the dual core with 8 to see if more horsepower on my end smooths things out a little smile.gif

WELCOME TO THE SATURDAY SHRED CHALLENGE!!!!



To replace my Saturday Video Chats, I'm going to start a SATURDAY SHRED FEST CHALLENGE. The format is going to be rather open at first. Follow the link at the top to joint the challenge. It will be a new one each week due before the following week. Just make a youtube vid of yourself playing over the selected backing and get a critique and a mission badge if your playing is up to snuff!!! It's a challenge so push yourself!
