Thanks Master Ben for your feedback, I think I'll check out your "Inside outside picking" lesson, I've been meaning to do so for a while now. As a matter of fact since I am not doing straight alternate picking when going faster on those licks makes feel that I need this lesson ! smile.gif

Hey Teemu this is really good ! Welcome once again to the Temple of Guitar Bushido ! ph34r.gif

There were occasional missed notes but generally your synch is good.. you're ready now to attack Task 2, which you can find in my instructor forum... smile.gif

That's ok man, you did say right at the very beginning that you probably wouldn't be able to make some of the challenges so I was prepared for that. No worries smile.gif

Here's mine Ben. Unfortunately some of my takes sounded really distorted when I played them back and so this is a kinda 'Best of the Rest' take so it isn't the cleanest that I managed to play.

If you want I can re-record a newer version?

Thanks for the take man.. no need to record it, not too worried about sound quality smile.gif

They're some unusual shapes arent they ? I think you're struggling to keep it tight at this tempo but it's good for showing you which areas need some love. Most likely your fretting hand fingers just need some more independance and agility, rather than it being an issue with your picking. In that case, you'll love Task 2 !! smile.gif

Are you sure it isn't perfect ? It sounds perfect to me !! cool.gif

I'm really impressed with how much your timing and hand synch has improved since I've known you.. really pleased ! biggrin.gif

Now, young warrior-in-training, Task 2 awaits ! ph34r.gif

DF - What a surprise ! smile.gif

Very good take, nice clean palm muting too.


P.S. I forgot to say to Sensible Jones & Marek - you may find Task 2 a little more tricky because of the broken finger and toe but the good thing about being in the mountains is that you can use the ice to keep the swelling down !

Nobody can accuse me of not caring smile.gif

Since I was to late I promised to catch up with this course but since it already ended before I even noticed I hope you will nevertheless accept my entry.

I can, for now, only record via my old JM4 ( spend all my money for the flight to Wherever-Your-Dojo-Is-Land)

This is generally good but the hand synch isn't perfect so it shows an area you need to work on. Which is good. It's better to know than not to know, because at least then you can take steps to change it smile.gif

You find it much easier to play these descending as it is much more accurate, the ascending parts are the ones which suffer the most. It sounds as if your fretting hand may be slightly ahead of your pick sometimes.. probably due to the 3rd and 4th fingers not having as much control over their timing.

Thank you for your submission.. now quickly get back to your guitar before the icy wind makes your hands freeze ! smile.gif

Yeah thats a problem I have for quite a while now my right hand is faster because I didnt practice slowly enough when i started playing....
Since I practice with a metronome it has improved but still not to the point where i want it to be..... do you have a suggestion for a lesson or a workout on synchronization.

Ok ill be playing some more now biggrin.gif

When it comes to synchronisation, it doesn't really matter which shapes you're practising - the thing that needs to improve is timing your fingers to be on time with your picking hand, which is only improved through practice so the lesson you've just done is as good as any for working on this. Also, any of the other Tasks from each group which deal with picking smile.gif

I find that if I concentrate more on my fretting hand being in time with the metronome then my picking hand is able to follow suit much easier. smile.gif

Thank you I will try that xD

In fact I do think a lot with my picking hand when it comes to playing with a metronome, will be an interesting task to switch that

Hey, welcome to Guitar Bushido !! biggrin.gif

If you're left hand is giving you problems then I always recommend using legato licks as a way of building stamina and co ordination. Check this one and give it a go.. don't worry about speed, just try to make sure your fingers are able to move independently and in time smile.gif

So I just jumped in on this, so far I am loving it.

Task 1 is a great exercise for me. My hand is actually cramping up, I guess I am training muscles I dont normally use???

Excellent ! biggrin.gif

Wow, yes.. I'd say this is exactly what you need. Just keep it steady and don't push yourself to pain. If your hand is cramping up make sure you keep taking breaks and make sure there's good blood flow / warmth. smile.gif
