I thought it would be fun if us instructors sometimes posted REC takes now and again. What do you reckon ?

Maybe we could make some kind of game / feature around it somehow.. ?

I've thrown down the gauntlet with a take of Emir Hot's Vinnie Moore lesson. Wow, that was hard !

I started practising it months ago but stopped because I had other things to learn. Today, after a long break of not playing it, I decided to have a go at recording it. Now I feel like I don't need to work out for a week ! biggrin.gif

Vibrato:11
Tapping: 11
Sweeping: 11+
Iron Maiden shirt: 20

Only found 2 problem areas, Mr. Higgins: from 0:07 until the end of the take, my eyes had trouble focusing.... the fingers became a blur. At 0:21, I took my guitars and put them in the trash.
Awesome, as always, Ben!

Great take buddy. If I have to criticize, I think you messed that last triplets bit. smile.gif

And you know...

If you had practiced this just a little more, you would have nailed it but for now its a 9 from me.. biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

Just kidding awesome take. I wish I can make those legato/sweeps sound clean. smile.gif

Oh no, I can't add a reply in the rec section laugh.gif

I see that you put a lot of work in this lesson, your sweeping has become really good lately biggrin.gif
I give you a 9 for one reason: Where are the takeouts???

Amazing take! The lick at :30 - :36 sounds straight off the Time Odyssey album. smile.gif It would be AWESOME to see some sort of feature with instructors doing difficult lessons.

I'm curious to know if there were any particular lick that you struggled to overcome? I know I usually stumble on a part that makes a lesson come to a screeching halt.

On a side note: There is an interesting link in the original lesson with a instructor collab on that riff.

If I recall correctly, wasn't Gabriel working on Muris' Extreme Neo-Classical?

Thanks Guys, I was expecting a few 4's or 5's from people like Gitarrero maybe tongue.gif

Yes, there were a few sticky points and I will gladly tell which bits they were, the little b*****ds !! wink.gif

The descending lick from 0:21 to 0:22 is a thing of evil. Although, adding more picking to it makes it a bit easier to stay with the pace.. but only by the seat of your pants.

The sweep sequence from 0:36-0:38 was the most annoying lick out of the whole thing. Ironically, I found it one of the easier aspects when I came back to this lesson as I'd made some progress with thoe types of arpeggios.

The ascending pentatonic lick from 0:48 - 0:50 is also outrageuously difficult because it's so fast and it completely drains the stamina from your whole hand as it asks a lot of your ring and pinky fingers.

hahaha yeah! I'm still doing it. I haven't been playing it everyday because of working too much on composing. I'm still 10 bpm far for the alternate picking.

It's amazing how some guitar players take a piece of great music and play it as if it was just composed, by themselves. Sometimes even without a whammy bar and a neck pickup! tongue.gif I have just witnessed an example of this. Five times in a row, to be exact.

Not only do I like your take a lot, but I also really enjoy the concept of instructors playing instructors. More of this, please!
