Well, we survived GrindGuer's Tasks.. but only just !! However, just so you don't relax and think that everything is suddenly safe, I've uncovered a hidden gem. I like it so much I may have to learn it myself..

Task 34: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/hots_boogie/

Blame GrindGuer for making me think of Emir's lessons !! biggrin.gif

There's plenty of really awesome licks in here that (speaking from my personal perspective) really take us out of our comfort zone and should hopefully give us some more ideas that we can add to our own phrasing. Also, timing is King in this lesson, so you gotta feel that groove !

Ok, deep breath... begin !

Deadline is next Friday 21st September or I'll shut you in a room with a tv and subject you to endless programs about the history of agriculture. For a week. ph34r.gif

Does this mean we will be seeing another take this week? That would be cool. smile.gif

Sounds like this groove will be a challenge to nail down! We'll see... I will give it a try.

I was planning on it but didn't get a chance to get into it!

I'm playing catch up on a couple of lessons. One is yours that I put on hold a couple times to build up guitar skills. A certain collab has reminded me that I need to finally finish it. biggrin.gif

I've been pretty slack this week (really the last 2-3) as well. Although I moved over to the Apprentice task for this week, I obviously still haven't got that done either. This one and last week's Warrior tasks were just a little over my head so I dialed it down a bit but looking forward to your next challenge.

I still owe Grind a task which I'm pretty much ready with so I'll be back on track shortly.

Ok Guys, what do you think about this ?

Let's bump this Task over another week.. and I'll jump in and learn it as well !! smile.gif

What do you say ?? It's quite a complex piece so the extra time will be welcomed !!

Sounds like a plan! It sounds like its a bit above my playing level but I will see what I can do.

Yeah, I can only play that at about 1/2 speed right now! That and the chickin' picking part around :40 are holding me up.
I'm just starting to get a feel for the groove overall. This piece has taken over most of my practice if I'm ever going to get it down. I'm hoping something good will come out of all this annoyance biggrin.gif

I might be late cause this one is really hard but I do have my sights set on uploading a take over the weekend. If anything, I'll at least post my "progress". smile.gif

Today is the deadline so here is at least a take at half speed. smile.gif I kept trying over and over to get something decent at 150 bpm but a few of these licks just aren't within reach yet. Needless to say, I'm miles away from a 200bpm take!

Hail DG !! smile.gif

Thank you for your heroic offering ! I too have been struggling away with this piece but that evil descending lick eludes me. However, I still want to upload a version anyway so watch this space ! wink.gif

It still sounds great anyway because of your tone and feel. It's also interesting to hear how you've interpreted phrases slightly differently.

In hindsight this was probably a bit too much for a Task to complete in one week but sometimes you don't know these things until you try them smile.gif

1 Donut for thee !!

It was a humbling lesson for me. At least I have it memorized so I can always keep at some of these licks. They are worth learning for sure!

Look forward to hearing your take!!

Note how I just openly gave up on that descending lick wink.gif

Thanks for uploading one for us to hear.

The "cover up" lick made me laugh. laugh.gif
