Well played Soldier! You are playing nice and brisk! As for marking your performance against our other brothers, keep in mind you are only in a PITCHED BATTLE against yourself! And I"m happy to say your fighting and winning!

One small note on tone. I can hear what your playing but it does sound kinda small in terms of tone. It's fine for our work hear as I just need to hear what your playing, not a Marshal Stack. What kind of amp are you using and what do you have available to you for your weapons of war? Also, do you have an audio interface? Or even an adapter to put your guitar cable in to your computer sound card? I'd like to be able to hear your palm muting and pick strikes a little bit better if at all possible. But these are pretty small concerns. Keep fighting!

On to the DEBRIEF! YOU JUST LEVELED UP SOLDIER!

MEDAL OF HONOR
-Good Precision
-Spiff Strikes
-Killer Speed

Congratulations Soldier! You are our first Warrior to see LEVEL 5!!!!!!!!

Im using a Mini Tone Master by Fender, It has 2 speakers, I believe to be 2 inches each, perfect for my computer desk, I am using a web cam with a built in mic, on my other computer I have a sound card but the video has lag, I have 3 other amps, 2 are in a picture of mine, the 3rd one is smaller than those but has the same style, I also have access to a camera with video recording, I dont think Im palm muting

While the setup you are using with the micro/mini 2 inch speakers is fine if that's what works best. It's really hard to hear any bass as there isn't much to hear and thus I can't tell if your not palm muting which is something I'm trying to get everyone to do on these workouts as it helps separate notes and makes you practice muting while pick traversing strings. If possible, can you skip the mini me amp and just plug in to the computer where your web cam is and use something like Amplitude Free? That way you can create a full range recording and it will really help me get a better idea of what's being played.

Let me know if you have any questions about installing/using Amplitude 3 or what not. Onward!

Todd

Great job on the Guitar CAM! Give us a break down of your rig! The guitar sounds almost like nintendo or a guitar synth? It's an interesting tone for sure!

You've got the hang of this lick, but play each note ascending and descending and you've got it!
Take one more look at the tablature.

Well fought Soldier! You got the idea on the single/double picking alternation and the pattern! So guess what! YOU LEVLED UP! AGAIN!

MEDAL OF HONOR
-Good Precision
-Spiff Strikes
-Killer Speed

I like that your trying new tones as well! On the RP50, can you tweak the Cabinet emulation presets? I don't know how many cabs are in it but the cabinet is the final bit in the chain typically to trick the ears in to thinking it's a real amp! Tone, like playing is a life long journey and I'm glad to see you trying new bits. Keep it up!
