My goals are relatively open at the moment, I have more of a desire to actualize a few general ambitions I possess, and I think I have the motivation and ability to do this now! I have much ambition to be a technical master, good sir. I have always had a strong respect for musicians that have an impressive mastery of their instrument. That will take a while, so I guess I would like to set some sort of formal speed and accuracy goal, perhaps with a good scale exercise or something. I don't really know where I am on my alternate picking/fret fingering ability.

Goal 1: Learn accurate fingering skills, followed by increasing my speed ( as Todd says "the by product"). I would like to be able to actually "shred" a scale. biggrin.gif

Goal 2: Build up a library in my head of blues licks, and have the ability to listen to a good blues backing, and just get to playing away! smile.gif

Goal 3: Increase my understanding of music theory, so as my playing skills increase, there is a proportional increase in my knowledge of theory, hopefully creating a nice synergy for my growth potential in uniform translation! biggrin.gif That's my hope, but I'll be happy just learning the best I can biggrin.gif

Thank you again Alex,

-Tucker

Awesome! I have a perfect exercise that will help you develop alternative picking!
Make sure to practice at a slow tempo using a metronome!
The trick is slower you practice it better results you will get!

Hi Alex! We just returned home from the Dominican Republic. It was a good trip, but left me not playing a guitar for a few weeks. Hope I didn't lose too much of what progress I am making. I sir, am back to practicing and getting my exercise down! Glad to be back good sir smile.gif

I may have a question or two about a few areas of my practice exercise, but going to see if I can work through it smile.gif

Don;t worry about missing two weeks it happens! You have a muscle memory and will be back to your progress in a few days!
Let me know if you have any questions and when you are ready for a new assignment!

I am so, so happy to hear that, I worried the whole trip about getting out of practice! So far, its going pretty well smile.gif Trip was good, except the traffic/ taxi cab dynamic thing was pretty chaotic, lol! Seriously, not a guitar subject man, how is the traffic in Moscow?? Seems there are two different traffic paradigms in the world depending on the country; USA style (stopped at red light for 5 minutes with no cars in sight on a desert highway), and what would seem to be the naturalistic Style (go when you freakin' can!!) like in the dominican republic. Which way does Moscow/Russia lean? biggrin.gif Just Curious!! lo0l. I have a few more days on the exercise, then I'll be ready to tackle another lesson sir!

I am glad your trip went good!
I live in Los Angeles now and the traffic here is not as bad as Moscow smile.gif
In Moscow people are wild and you can drive 5 miles for 2 hours!

Doing pretty good Alex, but desperate for new lesson now, haha! biggrin.gif I'm going to go crazy if I don't get internet soon man tongue.gif I don't have anyway to post up my progress currently, but If you could sir, assign me the next lesson you think would be fitting, and I can see it on my phone or at the school, and get going on it! smile.gif I would appreciate some new material so much my friend, lol! biggrin.gif

-Tucker

P.S. BTW Alex, the first (and so far only) assignment you have given me, has dramatically improved my agility and scope of reach on the fret board, I am not kidding. Very potent and much needed exercise man.

I would like you to start by getting use to those shapes and when you will be learning them try to call out notes it will help you to master the neck better!
And here is a cool part of this exercise!
I played a track and would like you to play along with me! This exercise will help you with picking technique!

Doing pretty good Alex, but desperate for new lesson now, haha! biggrin.gif I'm going to go crazy if I don't get internet soon man tongue.gif I don't have anyway to post up my progress currently, but If you could sir, assign me the next lesson you think would be fitting, and I can see it on my phone or at the school, and get going on it! smile.gif I would appreciate some new material so much my friend, lol! biggrin.gif

P.S. BTW Alex, the first (and so far only) assignment you have given me, has dramatically improved my agility and scope of reach on the fret board, I am not kidding. Very potent and much needed exercise man.



Just can't wait until I can post my progress so you can give me the feedback and mentoring I need! biggrin.gif


Hi I just wanted to follow up and see if you have any questions or need help with anything! Let me know! smile.gif

Alex sir, should I always try and pick each note before using hammer on's and pull off's? Just as a good practice tool? Of course HO and PO will be used, bu just to get fast and improve my skills, I always try and pick each note, good or bad sir what do you think? smile.gif

-Tucker

P.S. Also, should I try and not stare at the fretboard? I know this sounds pretty novice man, but I want to form good habits smile.gif

The whole exercise is alternative picking and the movement will be up and down throughout the whole exercise
You can look at the fretboard at first until you feel comfortable and don't have to look anymore!
If you are asking about HO and PO in general I think it is a good idea not to pick notes when you are using this technique! I will need to see you playing in order to let you know if you are doing everything correct!
Maybe you can record a video of yourself playing the exercise I gave you?
