Task 24: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Slow-Tempo-Control/

OK, gentlemen.. I have another slow one for ya !

It sounds a bit weird and jazzy, but the emphasis is on timing control. The only quick notes are those occasional pull offs. Try to stay relaxed during those and if you aim to land on the target notes at the right time, then you'll be able to place the pull offs better.

So, you can pretend you're in some strange, smoky club, playing weird lounge music at 2 am to a handful of shady punters. biggrin.gif

Deadline is next Friday 13th (Oooooh) or I set the ghosts on you !

Hi Ben feeling hungry tonight for a DOUNUT! yummy yummy yummy!
thought I might upload my attempt so far. To be honest I had quite a few goes at recording and always not happy with somthing. Anyway here is one of my attemps I'm not happy with my 2nd round through the first part but apart from that it okish I think. In that bad part there is a bit where I slide and then play a note which I got a bit mixed up on watching the slow video of that part.

Yo Zoom, thank you for your rendition of this week's Task biggrin.gif It's a weird one isn't it ??

Sounding good.. timing is generally all cool. Only thing is that during the hammer on/pull off bits you're sort of missing a note here and there. If you have a listen to 0:10-0:11 you'll hear what I mean. You've got 2of the notes there but you're missing 1 in the middle, if you know what I mean ? There should be 3 quick notes that lead to the next slow note smile.gif This'll be a good test of your pull off skills !!

As is customary in our Temple, you are awarded a Donut - eat with pride and beware potential ninja thieves !! ph34r.gif

Good point Ben. I will work on it more this week. It is there but you need bionic ears to ear the missing note that's all! biggrin.gif

Bonsoir !
Good job Zoom. You get THE donnut. But don't worry, I'm no thief wink.gif
Here is my take. Not too bad I think, but my strings keep on doing some noises. Less that when I enter the Temple (thank you ben for this wonderful idea), that's the good point.

À bientôt.

You managed to stop rolling just long enough to sit back and take five... this is Moss in a jazz club !! cool.gif

Good stuff, very controlled. Just missing the chromatic 3 note pull offs around 0:17 and 0:37.

When you do the other hammer on/pull offs, try to do it without picking at all ! smile.gif I know, a bit challenging at first.. but you'll get to that point where you can do these slippery runs that sound so smooth. It may even seem like you don't have enough sustain or gain at first but you do, trust me.. you can do it smile.gif

Good work, sounding very confident !!
