Task 26 : https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_fo...st&p=570638

Lick 18 !!

Record yourself playing a few reps of this lick against a tempo of your choice ! smile.gif

I'm digging into my own archives this week to give you some cheeky little finger twisters ! This one is a pedal tone lick which spans 3 strings ! Yes, 3 strings !! If you start the lick on a down stroke, then whenever you cross strings it will be with an 'outside' picking motion. Although outside picking slows some people down, I think it's easier to hit the strings correctly and leads to a more accurate lick.

Go through the lick slowly and figure out the most efficient finger positions for you. I use 1,3,4 fingers and don't use the 2nd finger at all, instead choosing to use the 1st finger to fret both the 10th and 9th frets on the G string, for example. 12th and 13th frets are covered by the 3rd and 4th fingers.

Enjoy !

Deadline will be next Friday 27th July !!

Bonjour,

here is my work on this lick. I can't play it at 120 bpm right now, so I've made a try at 115 bpm.

Unfortunately, I'll have to leave the Temple for the next two weeks. But I'll be back, be sure of that ! smile.gif

Bonnes vacances.

Well 86 bpm is the fastest I could do without it becoming too ear damaging.
I used the same fingering as you described in the initial post.
As I sped up, my ears seemed to interpret the sequence differently,
especially the part that loops back to the begining. My fingers kept wanting to play it differently.

That reminded me of a study I heard of in the 1990's based on the Tritone Paradox.

QUOTE
So on the basis of these observations, Deutsch (1991) compared two groups of subjects. Those in the first group had grown up in California, and those in the second group had grown up in the south of England. These two groups tended to differ in how they heard the tritone paradox: Frequently when a Californian subject heard a pattern as ascending, a subject from the south of England heard the identical pattern as descending, and vice versa.

Nice work Captain M ! smile.gif

Sounding good, sounding even. Also nice to hear you used the finger patterns I intended, thanks !

Stuff like this serves as a good as a warm up because it gets your picking hand moving a lot more then licks that stay on one or two strings. Licks that require a lot more vertical movement of the picking hand, as well as things like strumming, are good for getting blood flowing in the wrist so when you go to other licks that require less movement, they psychologically can feel much easier. Good work !

That's interesting about the tritone thing, I've never experienced that before !!
