Along the lines of "BETCHA CAN"T PLAY THIS", here is a VIDEO CHALLENGE. Open to EVERYONE. You don't have to play exactly what I"m doing just try to replicate the technique. It's something we have worked on in Video Chat.

1.)THUMBLESS!!!: Notice the left thumb is not touching the neck.

2.)NO PICK!!!!!: NO PICKING at all. Hammer on / Pull Of only.

3.)STRING TRAVERSE: Across every string.

GO FOR IT!!!!!!

PRIZE:

Anyone that pulls off a good entry will get a CUSTOM MISSION BADGE from the Bootcamp!!!!!

I've been practicing legato quite a bit lately... but I haven't tried it like this. Great drill!

Thumblessness is next to Cleanliness!

Sure! The MISSION is just to use all the strings (demonstrate traverse), and avoid the thumb and use left fingers only (demonstrating finger control/articulation) . Go for it!

Well played Soldier! You are the FIRST recipient of our SPECIAL OPS commendation on your mission badge! (The Bullseye, Representing Pure Precision/Articulation)

Really nice finger control and use of "Back and Forth" Technique as well!

Looking forward to it Soldier! It doesn't have to be note for not, just try to capture the overall vibe of the lick. Do try to get as close as is workable. This one is a bit over the line in to CRAZY TOWN!!
