My bad, hahaha. I really messed that one up. When I tabbed everything out, I did it with normal scale shapes in mind. I will be sure to fix this issue and post the video soon. Thank you, sir!


I am sorry that this took so long! I have not been feeling well for some time now and I took quite a few days off from playing guitar. I am back and I hope that all will be well for some time. Here is Bootcamp #2: Redux

That is my Schecter Damien 6 FR. It is my go to metal guitar. It was the first Electric I ever purchased. I have had it for about 4.5 years now. I will be getting a new guitar before the year closes out, though.

Surprisingly, it is a great metal guitar, and I am a huge fan of the natural mahogany look. John Haughm from Agalloch uses this guitar consistently up until 'Marrow of the Spirit'.

I am having a lot of trouble with this one. My mind keeps processing the shapes as triplets -- even though I know they are quadruplets.


I can play it flawlessly, but I cannot play and count at the same time -- which is my goal. Any tips?

Thanks Todd,

Brandon

I'd say reduce the speed by quite a bit. Bang your head or stomp your feet to keep time until you find the groove and can do it without thinking. Once you lock in to it, speed will almost happen by itself. Well, by itself with considerable practice smile.gif Your hands may be getting ahead of themselves which is natural. They can move faster than the commands can get to them. So sometimes you have to restrain them.

Thanks! I will keep attempting this lesson until I get it! I stopped trying to play altogether today and just counted it whilst watching the shapes. After that I used my left hand and counted until I was able to get it right multiple times in succession. Then I did the same thing with my right hand. I will keep doing this and then synchronise everything soon.

Thanks for the help.
