SOLDIER! You did a fine job on Lesson 134! You are well prepped for 135! We are going to take that crazy stretch Tripeggio thing and turn it in to an actual guitar part! This one is a bit more in line with the minor scale but uses the same hand position. Here is a preview!

SOLDIER!! This is REALLY WELL FOUGHT!!! You are going above and beyond with your spiff Double Picking here. It's really nice work! Understand when I say I have a weapons grade respect for your playing and the effort you are putting in. I feel like I"m reporting a death in the family to tell you that the second bit, around 19 seconds, is the only thing keeping you from the Vaunted Rank of LEVEL 11 (Which will be our FIRST Level 11 Mission Badge Ever), is the metronome. You are playing in a fine manner, at time index :19, it's just not tied to the metronome as much as it should be. Your timing is solid. It's just a slightly different timing than the metronome. I Know you can synch to the clicks. There may be too many clicks going on actually. If you don't need them, reduce the number of clicks by cutting the metronome speed in half. Count the time in your head and use the clicks just for reference. You should be able to hear the missing clicks in your head.

Give this one more ASSAULT soldier and be our FIRST TO BREACH 11!!!!!

Old Sarge
Todd

Well fought Solidier!! In the first video you KILLED IT!!!!!!! And I was about to go and fetch your new RANK BADGE but then..... I saw the second vid and while I applaud your shear cahones!!!!! You were lagging the metronome just enough to throw off your Drill Sarge. I really like to see you pushing yourself! Re Record the second video (Suicide Run Speed) and shave a bit off the tempo. Also, do a pass of Double Picking!!!!

FIGHT ON!!!!!!!!!

Todd

Im not highest ranking, Im just first to climb this mountain, there will be many that follow, there will be those that push harder than me, and those that give up on a short coming, this is not a race, this is me simply challenging myself, Here is the next mission

Well said soldier!!!! It's not a race and you really are only competing with yourself. The "Top Sniper" badge is simply recognition of being the first of the group to reach new ground. The badge is not permanent, it will shift to whomever is currently reaching the newest ground.

On to the debrief!! I've started watching these and sleeping on it, then watching again and I've found it gives me a better idea of the results and performance. After watching yours a few times now, I wanted to say that your ASCENDING bit is WONDERFUL!!!! Good technique and precision, followed by brisk speed and good control as well as fine mute control with no sympathetic string vibration. NICE!!!

However, on the DESCENDING bit.

HALF YOUR SQUAD GOT KILLED
1.)Right hand not fully planted military style on the bridge.
2.)Sympathetic string vibrations causing extra string noise

You nailed the playing entirely, well done! But Your muting on the descending bit still needs some work. I'd say re-fight this battle and focus less on the speed than on the muting and keeping string noise down. You RAWK soldier!! And are just a few shots away from your next Level.

FIGHT ON!!!!!


Todd
