Cool - no problems mate.

I've now got the 7 patterns locked in my head, along with all 5 pentatonic patterns.

A first for me!!

Cheers -

Z.

Awesome! Let me know if you have any questions or need help with anything!

Hey Alex -

I think there's an error in the .GP5 file which I just wanted to confirm with you -

Bar 22, the 6th semi-quaver should be a C (13th fret) not a C# (14th fret), right?

Cheers -

Z.

Wow... This is going to take a bit to get down smile.gif

I can do it reasonably smoothly now @ 80 bpm. Now the trick is getting is smooth @ 90 bpm which I think is the tempo of the backing track.

I'm still going out of left and right hand synch @ 90 - but getting there!!

So yeah, don't think I've fallen off a cliff or given up - just practising!

Hi Alex -

Sorry I'm dragging my heels on this one - I've nearly got it down and smooth. I'll post a take shortly so you can see where I'm up to.

This has been an interesting process for me. To play that many notes smoothly and in such a long sequence has been a real challenge. I've essentially rebuilt my picking approach to minimise movement and keep it clean and simple and accurate while working just from the wrist. This has meant that I need to move forward and back with my picking hand as I go from low to high strings. It's working, but has been a process.

In between times, I've been practising soloing using each of the modal patterns in the exercise over the 12 bar blues progression you posted earlier. I've just looped this for 30 minutes and I wail away using different modes and combining them with the pentatonic patterns. This has been a great practice routine and has broken things up nicely for me as a creative outlet in between drilling the current exercise.

So no - for the time being I'm good. I want to get this current exercise down before I move on to something else.

Thanks for checking in!
