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. https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_fo...st&p=473580

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!

Practice!
Todd

Congrats on taking on your first Mission Soldier! 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!


Here is where half your squad got killed.

PURPLE HEART
1.)You have good speed, precision, string traverse, all working well together! The only thing that is keeping your from your first MISSION BADGE is just a tad of focus on the right hand. I want to see you take a crack at playing this with tighter hand motion meaning less distance up and down after each strike of the string. Focus also on PALM MUTING, try to plant your hand on the bridge for a slight mute to make each strike more distinct. Also, being able to play at speed, without allowing the hand to go 'Free Range" is a challenge unto itself. Typically, players can either play slow and with palm mute, precision, or faster with more pick hand swing. What I"m trying to get you to achieve is the speed that you are showing here combined with the muted, palm planted on the bridge, each note distinct, relaxed hand approach that I can see you are capable of.

Here is a quick vid. Watch my right hand here and notice how it's moving briskly, but never gets too tense, never swings to far wide, but tries to go just past the string after a strike then return. This results in a sort of "shreddy" sound that is well suited to Alternate Picking.



In short WELL FOUGHT SOLDIER! But we need MORE VIOLENCE! smile.gif Take one more pass and focus the camera on your right hand a bit more so I can see how it's holding up UNDER FIRE! !!!!

FIGHT!!!!!!...I mean....PRACTICE!!!!!!!

Todd

NNIIIIIIIICCCEEE!


MEDAL OF HONOR
1.)Consistent strikes, Nice!
2.)Consistent Tempo, also Nice!
3.)Tight Control of pick hand and it's nice and planted to the Bridge, never drifts, AWESOME!
4.)Impressive speed!

The only skip is around :21 in the vid but you really nailed what I was talking about with right hand so I can chalk it up playing so much your blood is wetting up the strings!


CONGRATULATIONS! YOU HAVE CLEARED MISSION 1!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Here is your FIRST MISSION BADGE!

Onward Soldier!

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!

Soldier!! Plug that thing in to an amp/vst/anything! Don't be afraid to add a little gain/distortion. I want to see you palm muting every single note. It looks like your fingers are moving in the right direction! IF I can just hear what your playing, we could have ourselves a MISSION!!!!

Soldier, I hate to keep having you cover the same ground over and over, but now that I can hear the guitar, the metronome seems to be fighting you a bit. The pattnern itself is a bit odd in terms of timing. Try this, set your metronome to clicks only (without accent notes) and strike exactly on each click, speed up or slow down the metronome to find the right spot and try to make one pick strike per click. Your close Soldier!!!

Todd

Im trying do one pick on each click but there was too many clicks and it was hard for me, so i count notes on pattern (10 notes) and set metronome on that way: Accent click click click click. What u think about this? If its wrong i will practice like u said on exacly on each click. Go take a look:
