It's tough to use exact degree determinations sometimes as it's more of a "Feel" thing. But please take a pic or video of your picking hand and let me see what's going on and I'd be happy to help soldier!ToddQUOTE (Yash @ Jun 7 2012, 12:53 PM) Problem spotted Sargent - I sometimes go faster than the metronome, even at 180 bpm.Always try to follow the metronome. That's sorta the whole point of playing to one Soldier! If you rush the metronome, you'll likely end up rushing the drummer in a band. Being able to lock in to the metronome groove is important and why we practice with them Keep at it!The links are fixed Woohoo! The speed is up to you. I'll be able to tell by watching your vid if you are slacking on speed or i you are pushing it beyond your current ability, so just try to push it up to a comfy but brisk pace.QUOTE (Yash @ Jun 5 2012, 11:43 PM) Hey Todd, thanks for letting me in The example links don't work.

Let's run through the stuff really really quickly. 200 bpm eighth notes alt picking, two notes. I'll get the video in 15-30 mins after this post. --------------------

So, I've been wanting to tackle this for a long long time, but, the metronome with the boring clicks really gets me off my timing. I know I can play stuff, but it throws me off, I have no idea why. I can easily go quarter notes if the metronome is going quarter notes too, but, eighth notes, I get confused. Then, if I put like, a drum track or something behind me, I easily get it done right. So, basically, what I am saying is, I apparently can't, or don't know how to work with a basic metronome.Here's the job done, 200 bpm, eighth notesHope it works. What's the next job?

We have missed you the FoxHole of Shredderythat is the BOOTCAMP!! Great to see you digging in! Let's debrief!!MEDALS OF HONOR*MUTE: Solid Palm Muting here. I'd suggest maybe pulling the guitar up a pinch so that your hand can coverthe entire bridge even if your not muting. It's handy for quick on / off mutes!*STRIKES: Very clean picking strikes and good alternate picking. Looks like you have been spending time in the woodshed!!*AGGRESSION: Points for sheer, outright Aggression. I appreciate an aggressive style!These first few Missions are just to get your fet wet and get you accustomed to the process. You will tear through them like a hot knife through butter!In other words you just killed it and ..LEVELED UP!!!Next up is MISSION 2!! Then 3 and so forth.

You can set it to 8th notes and just play one note for each noise the metronome makes. Make sense? Here's the job done, 200 bpm, eighth notesHope it works.

And a bit of sloppiness.It gets a little difficult on the super high frets but it's fun.Bonus - Here's a fail outtake. I kinda lost my way when I had to come down, it was clean though. hahaSo, what do you think? This post has been edited by Yash: May 7 2018, 03:03 AM --------------------
 May 7 2018, 04:23 AM Post #12 GMC:er Group: GMC Instructor Posts: 19.375 Joined: 23-December 09 From: Atlanta, Georgia, USA Member No.: 8.794 And he's off to the races!!! Good stuff. You have the appropriate level of SHEER AGRESSION to be sure. Let's debrief!.MEDALS OF HONOR*TIMING: I can hear the metronome and I can tell you are trying to maintain synch with it. Keep that up. Being able to play "in time" is as important as playing "in key"!*ALT PICKING: Good Alternate Picking here as well! Some folks down pick this, which is fine, but I do prefer seeing it alt picked. It's good prep for what's to come.*MUTE: You will hear me say this a LOT, "MUTING IS IMPORTANT!". Good news is you mute quite well and there isn't any errant string noise.Also, I can hear your guitar and I can hear the metronome at the same time. This is a good thing. Just being able to record yourself with both levels matched is a very important step. In addition, I can see both of your hands!! This too is a very important part of producing these vids and it takes some folks a few tries to get all the details down. You've got it in the first couple of lessons so you are in good shape!! In other words you just..LEVELED UP!!!!SargeQUOTE (Yash @ May 6 2018, 09:57 PM) Here it is. 180 bpm and 200 bpmThe finish was weird on this one.

This drill is supposed to be about Alternate Picking, but you have plenty of Missions ahead to get in to that. I"m glad to see you finding your stride and not rushing / lagging the lick. That's progress!!!! Let's Debrief. MEDALS OF HONOR*PICKING TECHNIQUE: You did this one as all down strokes and that's fine for now. More Alternate picking ahead!! Solid picking technique. *MUTING: As you know, Without a solid palm mute, all is lost. Your palm mute is spot on and no string noise is escaping. NICE!!!*SYNCH: You had some synch issues but you worked through them. hand synch and being able to alternate pick while keeping synch takes time and practice and you are ready to dive in!!!In other words you just.....LEVELED UP!!!!
