No worries smile.gif you can play along with the track and even use your web cam if that works. If you have a small guitar amp, you can use that and play the song over any playback system. Then just record via web cam. You don't have to do it all at once. If you figure out a piece of the song, record just that piece smile.gif


This is MUCH MUCH Better Soldier!!!! I want to push your ability a bit farther here. Try the same thing, slower if needed, with DOUBLE PICKING. So pick every note twice and you will nail your next MISSION BADGE!!!!! Great progress on this one!!

Todd

Nice Mission Soldier!!! Your fighting skills are improving at each turn. smile.gif I have noticed your hand position might be getting in your way a bit. Your thumb is coming over the top of the guitar which reduces the amount of reach/stretch your fingers are able to do. When playing below the 12th fret, try to keep your thumb planted dead center on the guitar neck. It will give your fingers better reach! smile.gif

Let's Debrief!


MEDAL OF HONOR
1.)GoodClean Strikes
2.)Double Pick
3.)Tightened up timing
In short you just.....



!!!!LEVELED UP!!!!


Keep it up Soldier you are on a roll!!

Soldier your really gaining ground!! I have to put the brakes on this mission to focus a bit on your left hand. Your speed here is good!! But you may need to slow down just a bit. Let's focus on your right hand.

1.)Try to put your left thumb in the middle of the neck and keep it there and reach with your PINKY to hit the far notes.

2.)Try to keep your hand centered and not let it move to hit the note but instead make the fingers do the work. I"ll record a short vid to demonstrate smile.gif

Here is a video demo. Watch my left hand. See now I keep it in one position and let the fingers do the work? See if you can try it similar to this smile.gif Also, is your guitar difficult to press the strings? Some guitars are tough to play this type of thing on.

SOME TIPS!
1.)Make sure to sit in proper "Classical Position" with your guitar in between your legs.
2.)Put your left foot up on something like a stack of books.
3.)Increase the angle of the guitar neck, bring the head stock towards the ceiling a bit.
4.)Don't let your thumb creep over the top of the neck. Keep it in the middle of the neck.

Soldier, I don't this this method will work for us sad.gif You can post to youtube and simply select UNLISTED and this will make the video not show up for people unless they have the link. So only folks you share the link with will have it. Make sense?

You are getting closer!! Remember in our SATURDAY VID chat, we gave some examples about using your fingers instead of moving your hand back and forth to reach notes? And about putting your thumb in the middle of the neck? Slow the speed down as much as you need to and try to use your fingers to reach the notes. Your making progress!! Keep at it!!

Todd

Hello Todd !

Yes i recognized the different when leaving thumb in middle of the neck and using more my fingers !

I do exercise more slow but getting daily more used to it and it is as you said ,, ZEN " too , real relaxing smile.gif

Too i try to work with less hand and finger pressure and getting more into feeling !



The next days i only exercise this new technic with lick 13 and some pentatonic exercise 3-to 4 times a day half an hour

and than relaxing my hand because i feel the load in my hand and arm , so have to be a bit careful.



Too i stopped every exercising with other stuff because i will get my hand and fingers under control / compared with my

breathing before i go on with exercising, lessons or collaboration , own stuff and so on ........


Actually, just right now , i am starting as a BEGINNER guitarist from the ground cool.gif


Thank you for INSPIRATION and ALL THE BEST !

MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH BETTER!!!!!!


I have a suggestion to make this lick a bit easier.

1.)Move the entire drill up two frets.
This will make the stretch easier to reach without moving your hand.
2.)Practice the drill using only your right hand. Forget picking for a few times.
Just place your fingers one at a time.

You are making GREAT progress!!

Todd
