> HEY MAN, I really need your help...

...the thing is, I need you to start progressing faster then ever, but to achieve that I need your help:

* Don't know where to start? Just pm me and we will sort it out directly, I am online every day.

* Join My Army. Sounds aggressive? It is! We can study anything from the most fearsome picking techniques to bombastic songwriting. A medal of honor awaits the brave. Seriously, this is an opportunity for you to get a personalised learning experience...what are you waiting for?!

* Join my next video chat! GMC startpage holds a video chat schedule. We always cover a lot of ground and have fun. Remember that you don't need any previous knowledge, and you can be passive in the chat.

* Jam with me - you will find active collabs here.

* Post a topic on this board, guitar related or not - doesn't matter! You will find that chatting with instructors boosts your motivation to practice.

* You haven't missed my latest video lessons, have you?

* Finally I want to tell you a secret. Nah I changed my mind - pm me instead ;)

Thanks Gabriel biggrin.gif

I'll try to keep that bpm speed the next days and will practise to play it more clean..
The Hand Synch - lesson is giving me some trouble, especially the opening 3-patterns run over all 6 strings. ATM I play it really sowly with a metronome until the speed gets uncomfortable...
I think it would be a goal to play this lesson by the end of this month..

yes, the problem here is crossing strings. This makes Alternate Picking more difficult off course. Let's incorporate this lesson to your diary training...

I'll do so! I was able to play that opening riff @ 60 bpm yesterday, finally biggrin.gif
And the first 3-string pattern is running at 145bpm quite well now! I'll do a recording for you soon!

Cheers,
Marc

Update biggrin.gif

For the latest recordings on 3-Pattern exercises I use speed bursts as I think it's better for building endurance, too.. what do you think?

Pattern1 @ 155bpm
https://soundcloud.com/mad-gmc/pattern1-155bpm?in=mad-gmc/sets/gabs-army-week1

Pattern2 @ 125bpm
https://soundcloud.com/mad-gmc/pattern2-125bpm?in=mad-gmc/sets/gabs-army-week1

Pattern3 @ 115bpm
https://soundcloud.com/mad-gmc/pattern3-115bpm?in=mad-gmc/sets/gabs-army-week1

Here are a few recordings for the string crossing exercises:

Ex.1 @ 80bpm
https://soundcloud.com/mad-gmc/exercise1-80bpm?in=mad-gmc/sets/gabs-army-week1

Ex.2 @ 90bpm
https://soundcloud.com/mad-gmc/exercise2-90bpm?in=mad-gmc/sets/gabs-army-week1

Ex.3 @ 85bpm
https://soundcloud.com/mad-gmc/exercise3-85bpm?in=mad-gmc/sets/gabs-army-week1

Ex.4 @ 85bpm
https://soundcloud.com/mad-gmc/exercise4-85bpm?in=mad-gmc/sets/gabs-army-week1

Excellent job mate!! It would be cool to incorporate any other technique to do the same workshop in parallel. What do you think?

Actually I like the solo-works by Brent Hints (Mastodon). He often combines slow powerful melodies and fast AP-Runs
Here's my favourite atm (solo starts at 2.50):


And I simply love Buckethead smile.gif

Currently I have no recording of me playing a solo - actually I learn to play Ben's Epic Metal Beginner Solo.
I try to put as much feel into it as he does regarding techniques like vibrato, bending, hammer-ons and pull offs. In fact it does look like a very simple solo - but especially the first 36 seconds are quite difficult for me to play...

As far as i can say - I'd like to combine techniques like legato or sweep within our current schedule. What do you think?

yes! Those are the two techniques that I was thinking about when you said Buckethead! smile.gif

Let's start with this two lessons and let's do the same work as we are doing with the Alternate Picking exercises.

and please also, Land of legato I by Ben! smile.gif

Brilliant biggrin.gif

BUT: As I stated at the beginning of all this here, I need kinda practise-plan - and these are lots of routines, how long do you recommend practising each exercise? I mean, do I have to practise all of them every day?

Well, I think that you are doing a great job with the AP exercises, so start in order, just with the first 4 or 5 exercises (when you feel comfortable or get bored add some other ones). Now, the new exercises/lessons combined with the AP that you are working should be your job for the next 15/20 days. Divide your time in 3 equal parts and practice:

Part 1: Alternate Picking
Part 2: Legato
Part 3: Sweep Picking

Here is my first recording for legato (if I go faster by now, it's starting to sound more sloppy)

https://soundcloud.com/mad-gmc/legatoday1-80bpm-1?in=mad-gmc/sets/gabs-army

I just took the first two patterns of Bens lesson.

Short update on the Hands Synch-Lesson:

https://soundcloud.com/mad-gmc/hand-synch-60bpm

I don't think I'll get it to full speed by the end of this month... but still a great improvement for me, as I definately wasn't able to play it at that speed a month ago smile.gif
