Welcome to SHRED BOOTCAMP! I'll be your Drill Instructor! And I do mean DRILL! As in a large power tool used in slasher films and Paul Gilbert concerts. Here is were you EARN THE LIVING DEATH out of your fingers and break through any speed bumps/barriers to become a MASTER CHIEF of Shred!

MISSON #1

THE MISSION

1.)Your mission is to go all the way back to the very start. The base of the mountain.

LESSON 1. http://bitly.com/gmclesson1

Which you will play SLOWWWWWWLLY, very SLOWWWLLLLYYYY until you master it at a crawl (As You'll Do With Each Mission, and focus on left hand FORM! Make it SUPER PERFECT!). Speed it up bit by bit until you feel your ready to take it to WAR (Any speed, it's up to you) Shoot a video and post it as a reply to this post. I'll then offer a constructive and brutally honest critique.

THE AFTERMATH

Upon nailing the crap out of lesson one at a speed you didn't think possible, and playing it a clean as a freshly waxed floor, you will be given your first insignia of Rank in BOOTCAMP!

Here is your link your personal training ground/HELL!

http://bitly.com/gregcsbootcamp

Practice!
Todd

Well played! Congratulations on taking on MISSION 1! Here is where you did your DRILL BOSS proud!

MEDAL OF HONOR
1.)Consistent strikes, Nice!
2.)Consistent Tempo, also Nice!
3.)Wide range of fret choice!
4.)Impressive speed!

Here is where half your squad got killed.

PURPLE HEART
1.)String traverse: It's hard, believe me I know. Look at 0:14, and 0:21 on the video. When shifting between strings and trying to maintain consistent speed/strike, any flaws will show up in a big way. The good news is, it's fixed with some more running of the bit.
2.)Drift: Just to show how well you can stick to a given count, try to play with a metronome click or even drum click track in the background and only speed up when it speeds up so show you can LOCK in to a given time signature.

In short, WELL DONE BUT YOUR NOT DONE YET! Take another pass at this one and focus on string traverse and higher frets as those are hard sometimes, and on locking to a given tempo/click. Shoot one more Vid and SLAY THE ENEMY!

FIGHT! I mean, PRACTICE!
Todd

One vid at a time smile.gif I gotta approve one before we can move on to the next, but well done posting the next one! The Mission Badge goes up by one for mission, so the next one will have another mission badge. smile.gif I"ll put my drill instructor hat on and take a peek your second mission vid!

CONGRATS ON LIVING LONG ENOUGH TO FACE MISSION 2!

After a post-mortem review of your performance on the field of Battle, here is what we have.

MEDAL OF HONOR
1.)Consistent strikes, Nice!
2.)Consistent Tempo, also Nice!
3.)Wide range of fret choice!


All the basics are covered, so moving on to...

Here is where half your squad got killed!

PURPLE HEART
1.)Higher Frets - Start at the 12th fret and work up!
2.)Push it a bit harder Private! You have good control and clean picking, push the speed just a bit farther!

Your next Mission Badge awaits!

FIGHT! I mean, PRACTICE!
Todd

Soldier you are on a MISSION! smile.gif Actually several MISSIONS. As you complete one mission/lesson, start on the next! So Do one Lesson/Mission at at time, making a video example for each workout in a given lesson. If there are four examples, then you have to master all four and make videos so it gets CRAZY hard later on. For now, there are mostly one example per lesson. So start on your next!

All of the lessons/Missions are listed at the bottom of this page in the wiki! Get Moving Solider!

Sorry for the delay Soldier! To ensure smoother reaction time on the part of your Drill Instructor (me), be sure to shoot me a PM whenever you complete a mission so that I know to check your THREAD OF DEATH for new Mission!

One to the DeBrief!

SOLDIER YOU RAWK! This is well played!
-Right hand planted firm on bridge
-Good pick strikes! Nice and clean!
-Speed Kills! Nice and fast!

You even did DOUBLES and TRIPLES! The only complaint I'd have is with the triple picking being a tad off set to the metronome but that's understandable as triples are hard to match to 4/4 time. You played with consistency and that's all that really matters to me. WELLL DONE!

Congratulations Soldier! You have BEEN PROMOTED! YOUR ARE OUR FIRST 3rd MISSION MONSTER!
