THERE HE IS!!!! Welcome back to the BRAWL!

Let's Debrief...

MEDAL OF HONOR
1.)Picking is sharp as ever
2.)Finger Articulation also sharp as ever
3.)Multipicking is great and you get bonus points for the shirt and pics!

Bottom line is that is is one of our core licks and you have seriously nailed it. Once you get this lick, it opens up so much and you really have a good handle on it. Nicely produced vid, good sound, good editing, nicely done. You have come soooooo far since the early days, it makes me proud smile.gif

Thanks Todd!

I practiced mission 14 as well and recorded it tonight.
After practicing the singles for quite some time and getting my speed up to 200 bpm, there was not much left for doubles so 100 bpm was all I could manage there.

You are on a roll Soldier! Great to see you kicking it in the trenches and taking names!!!!

I like guitar as well. It looks like it's got the original electronics from the first wave bc rich series! Is that a carvin? Fine weapon of choice. On to the debrief!

Let's Debrief...

MEDAL OF HONOR
1.)Killer job on your muting. You are keeping your hand flat and not letting it drift to much while keeping control of the pick! This is one of the most important lessons I try to teach and you have a really good handle on it!
2.)Precision! Well done on your precision as well! Each strike is spot on and your pick/fret timing synch is great.
3.)Multipicking! Just to round it out, you got some nice double picking in there. Not as easy bit on this as it's always moving. Well done there!

Once again your hard work is paying off and you are really killing it!!! Keep it up Soldier!

Thanks Todd!
My goal is to be consistent and submit a few missions per week, right now I'm aiming for three. Gotta keep the motivation high!
To the technical side of the guitar: it's an Oakland ZX1200, made in Japan, sometime in the 70's. That's what I could find out on the Internet.
To the emotional side of the guitar: this is the very guitar I played my first chords on and I even recorded my first songs with back when I was 13, with an old tape recorder. My dad gave this guitar to me and taught me to play. Somewhere at my mom's place there is a picture of him with his band where he plays that guitar on stage. I'll visit her in two weeks and will look for that photo so I can upload it here.

WOW!! That's amazing to be honest and I"m impressed. If you can pull of one or more you'd be doing very well, 3 is very ambitious but hey go for it!!!!!! You have spent the time to earn the skills so why not right?

Never heard of the brand of that guitar but it looks like a very interesting piece. Awesome that it was given to you buy your dad smile.gif
My folks bought me my first guitars as well and I have always appreciated that. I had to ask for one since I was 5 but by 14 they got tired of hearing it and bought me a fake les paul. Persistence!!

Welcome back smile.gif

As promised, here is the lick from yesterday`s chat.
Singles at 190, doubles at 110.
This is where it starts to get sloppy at times. 180 and 100 was comfy, 200 and 120 very sloppy, so I went for the middle.

Again he is DRILLING AND KILLING!!! I watched this several times trying to find flaws and you are just in BEAST MODE!!

That classic axe still sounds nice too smile.gif Your muting it great without lifting, your picking is clean without unwanted string noise, everything is nice and tight. So....


Let's Debrief...

MEDAL OF HONOR
1.)Can't say enough about your muting. Being able to plant the back side of your hand while leaving the fingers free enough to pick is something that is the very foundation of lead playing IMHO and you got it. smile.gif

2.)SNIPER precision!! Each note lives in it's own space and doesn't bleed in to the next.

3.)Multipicking! Of course you have to have some killer multi picking to make it RAWK!!!! You have a great handle on this as well! I'm going to start having you do TRIPLES just to give you a challenge!!

BONUS: you get bonus points for KILLING the lick from the chat as well!!! Soldier, you are just on a MONSTER ROLL!!! Keep it up!

In short you just...

LEVELED UP!!
