Task 19: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_fo...st&p=585322

You should find yourself starting at Lick 25... a tricky little so and so that makes use of 'inside' picking smile.gif Dark Dude's already encountered this one in the video chat but now it's time for you guys to upload a take of this lick at a tempo you can manage but try to aim for some speed improvements over the week if you can smile.gif

I've chosen a short lick that isn't too taxing and that way we can get the Tasks / Deadlines back on line for Fridays, the way it was before.

Enjoy the change from vibrato. It's pure technique this time around !!

Deadline is Friday 8th June

I saw this a little in your chat last time. I did try it then as well as I have done similar exercises/lessons before. The first one was some 10 years ago when I watched the Petrucci DVD. It didn't feel that difficult with that experience but had to practice quite a bit in this one. Here is what I have. As always stamina is a problem, concentration too. smile.gif

Hello Bushido Warriors,

I have never posted anything for the Bushido Tasks before but I really like this exercise and it helps me a lot with my technique. So if a take from a complete stranger is welcome, I would like to post my first try on this at 120 bpm smile.gif

Cheers,
Mert

Thanks smile.gif hehe yea I was in the GMC comics this week smile.gif I will see what I can do about the sound, the way I record stuff is extremely primitive at the moment. I need some good recording device with a nice mic I think..

So how do the Bushido tasks work? For example for this one, do we get to post our improvement in speed so Ben can give us feedback? Also I hope Master Ben is not mad at me for posting my take here without his permission since I am not a member of the Temple yet smile.gif

Normally I give the guys Tasks of GMC lessons so we can use that as an indicator of improvement but sometimes I'll give them a lick to learn. This time, there's no set bpm so it's just an upload of the lick at any tempo that suits. So, it's an easy going Task this week smile.gif

Anyone's welcome to post Bushido Tasks, the door to The Temple is always open, no permission needed !

Thanks for the information Master Ben smile.gif In that case I might occasionally, if the Task is not too advanced for me, post a take smile.gif This week's task from your video chat notes is one that I like a lot. I am making a lot of progress with it in terms of speed. So I wanted to put my initial take smile.gif

Hey Sensi Higgins and Bushido Warriors!

I am a new guy to this Temple as well smile.gif
I had been practicing on a similar lick like this recently.

So, starting at 130bpm... which is slightly faster than "comfort zone" for me.
I'll practice more on this Bushido task and post the progress at the end of the week

Very nice, DG !! Only thing I noticed is you're playing a wrong note on the second pattern. The 2nd pattern doesn't exactly mirror the first one.. you have to use your pinky to play the 16th fret on the B. smile.gif

This is pure class !

So, Opethelic, I remember you saying you had a problem with your picking technique, that you felt it wasn't good enough.

And your problem is ............????

I wasn't really planning on pushing this tempo just yet but I was inspired by Opetholic to try and MAX it out. laugh.gif Can feel a deep burn after the second pattern and can barely hold on at the end! Killer excersise.
