Good fighting form Soldier! One small issue though. Your pinky needs to hit the 16th fret, instead of the 15th so it's a bit of a stretch!! But your form and picking is very solid!!! I'd say you are ready to give this mission a GO!!!!

back from double picking special Ops cool.gif

Ive got lesson 7 with singles and doubles. I re-recorded the single picking because Ive kept it in my practice routine and managed to increase the bpm on it a little.

Soldier you are really progressing quick!! At this rate you are going to hit mission 300 in no time!!!
You picking, finger articulation, muting, and timing are all improved. Honestly, you are making this look way to easy!!! To wit!!!

DEATH BY DOUBLES
Give me a pass at this using DOUBLE PICKING!!! Doesn't have to be fast, just clean!!

P.S. Why do you never play that IBBY in the corner? What model is it?

Thanks sage smile.gif I'll get those doubles locked and loaded! This whole picking malarkey has become the first thing that gets attention during practice time thesedays. there is something zen like about drilling these patterns against a metronome cool.gif

as for the ibby mellow.gif its the s970 premium. Have you ever had a guitar that you were blown away by at first and then all of a sudden the honeymoon period seemed to end. Basically a lot of little issues have seemed to build up to the point where Im just not picking it up. Maybe Im just a Les Paul guy.
Im probably going to pack it away until a goldtop LP turns up locally for a trade in.
