Task 2 : https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/beginn...-picking-etude/

Record and upload your take of this lesson by Wednesday 8th Feb.

As you may have guessed, picking is on the agenda. I got you guys to start working on hand synch / picking with your previous task and this time we're continuing that train and stepping it up a notch.

The patterns move around a lot so they will be a nice challenge but the whole thing is really musical so it should be very satisfying to play. Notice how he uses alternate picking for the whole thing, even those arpeggios wink.gif I want you to do the same, no cheating...

Tempo.. hopefully it doesn't need to be said again anymore that I'm totally happy with you recording your take at a lower tempo than the lesson. There's 2 main reasons why this makes sense..

1: You only have a week and you're only human
2: 'Intermediate' is a very broad range.. some of you will be closer to managing those tempos than others so it's only fair that your boundaries are pushed as individuals because you're all at different levels

Dig in and dig deep !! ph34r.gif

Cool! This stuff is exactly what I need. This one will be challenging too but task 1 has prepared me (btw, almost got it smooth at full speed last night, still working on it).

Wow at first this seemed really hard but half hour practice and I got it down in really slow speed.
But those sweeps...

Some german words I can't write here escaped my mouth when I saw it's a level 6 lesson.
Then I remembered one word from the Atlanta-guy...PRACTICE!

dd...our guess was wrong...

And just for fun, I'll throw in a random video as well. Listen to the lady towards the end laugh.gif

Same here, same here laugh.gif

Practiced this for 30 minutes now and got the first 5 patterns down, could even keep up with the slowest BT. But that last pattern is insane!...

That's about where I am right now. Still having some difficulty with the final pattern (little finger to 16th fret to be exact) though.

That last pattern put my fingers in knots.

This week will be hard I've got less free time to practice than last week and I have to try and nail the solo for Lincoln Brewster - Everlasting God for church Sunday morning

My subscription ended sad.gif
So no recordings from me for a while now, can't afford it at this time...
I'll be browsing the forums every now and then, to check how are you guys progressing

Cheers
