Mine

Technique and fretboard knowledge

Get my legato and alt picking up to a decent and useful speed

Have major scale patterns and pentatonic patterns firmly drilled into my fingers (muscle memory) and brain.

These two will work together, using the trusty http://bouncemetronome.com/ as my ever faithful side kick.

I'll be working on my scale positions using 16th note and triplets and with intervallic patterns, string groupings (eg. one string, two string, 3 string patterns), and runs.

and just so I'm not relying on pattern shapes, learn and identify my note and interval names for each.


I'll also be playing and learning music, riffs and licks so I can use this stuff in musical ways.

Build up legato and alternate picking speed, get a cleaner sound with the two of these, learn different sweep patterns and get faster with them and ultimately learn how to utilize things that I learn from the lessons here at GMC.

Goal for the day is finishing moving my room around to put in surround speakers.. I started this.. 5 hours ago, in the middle came food and Borderlands 2. Now GMC, maybe after that I will finish sometime today.

Guitar wise, I've been working my picking. Alternate picking, single strings, few notes per strings, and string skipping. It's rather hard doing all of this slow, but it feels its paying off overall!

I hear that! Drum programming is a bit of a HUGE pain for me. I enjoy playing drums, I just hate programming them. Making a nice triplet based djenty polyrythm seems far more complex than it should be. To whit, I broke down and just bought some spiff midi from Ola Englund (comes on his special edition disc) and I must say he has a gift for it. Just looking at his midi tracks has been insightful.

Do you know if he actually gets someone (himself?) to play the midi in, or does he genuinely just do it note for note? Cause his drum parts are phenomenal.

Haha really? Your going to pop a tendon if you go too much faster.

My goal is to get half of Opeth's AP speed.

And @#$%ing legato.

Cool !!

Yeah, recently I realised there were some things that I hadn't really been doing like altering hi-hat velocity so that the hits that coincide with the snare are hardest (or stay the same as their default setting) and I lower the ones in between.

I also remembered that drummers use crash cymbals more often for beats, not just crash hits. That also sometimes takes a bit of playing with the velocity to get it so it doesn't just sound like a big noise.

The other thing I realised/remembered was that drummers don't just play one crash cymbal during big moments, you can have kick & 2 crashes simultaneously in places where the drummer would have time to physically do so smile.gif
