HERE IS A DIRECT LINK TO YOUR BOOTCAMP!

http://bitly.com/madsbootcamp

Welcome to SHRED BOOTCAMP! I'll be your Drill Instructor! And I do mean DRILL! As in a large power tool used in slasher films and Paul Gilbert concerts. Here is were you EARN THE LIVING DEATH out of your fingers and break through any speed bumps/barriers to become a MASTER CHIEF of Shred!

MISSON #1

THE MISSION

1.)Your mission is to go all the way back to the very start. The base of the mountain.

LESSON 1. http://bitly.com/gmclesson1

Which you will play SLOWWWWWWLLY, very SLOWWWLLLLYYYY until you master it at a crawl (As You'll Do With Each Mission, and focus on left hand FORM! Make it SUPER PERFECT!). Speed it up bit by bit until you feel your ready to take it to WAR (Any speed, it's up to you) Shoot a video and post it as a reply to this post. I'll then offer a constructive and brutally honest critique.

THE AFTERMATH

Upon nailing the crap out of lesson one at a speed you didn't think possible, and playing it a clean as a freshly waxed floor, you will be given your first insignia of Rank in BOOTCAMP!

Practice!
Todd

Alright Soldier! Let's do this!


Here is where you honored our Fallen.

MEDAL OF HONOR


1.)Ballistic Speed
2.)Clean strikes
3.)Aggresive Style

You've done time in the trenches Soldiers and it shows! Precision, Speed, aggression, all there!

Here is where half your squad got killed.

UN-MARKED GRAVE


1.)Floating Hand Syndrome
*When you hit speed, your right hand lifts a bit and loses it's mute. This results in notes sorta going blurry which is a shame since youve got great speed and holding the mute would give it a very percussive feel. Look @ time index 2:00 to see what I mean.

2.)Cement Boots
*You get points for speed and precision but once you hit your stride you park your left hand in the same spot and don't move about much. The good news is this is easy to fix. Watch the original vid again and notice how I randomly bounce around to different frets. the point of this is to teach you to "Stick The Landing".

In short Soldier, take this mission head on and refine your BLACK OPS fingers skills and YOU WILL LEVEL UP!

Todd

Every mission from here on in is to follow the lessons from 2-200 playing each example and having it debrief by yours truly!!! This going to get harder as you go since the lessons start having 6 or 8 examples once you reach a certain point. smile.gif

Here is the direct link to every lesson!

Well fought Soldier!! I think you are ready for SPECIAL ASSIGNMENT. You've got the hang of this so let's turn it up a notch. Try this same mission..

1.)Double Picked (Pick each note twice)
2.)Quad Pick (Pick each note four times)

This will take a bit of work but your KILL RATIO will thank you smile.gif
