I wanted to follow up to see how the double picking was going? I know it can be a big hurdle. Let me know if I can help smile.gif

Here we go. I had trouble getting the right time signature for the 2nd exercise double picked so it does sound a little weird to my ears.

Lesson 6 double picked at 140 bpm

ONGRATS SOLDIER!!!! Your hard work is continuing to pay off!!!!!


MEDALS OF HONOR

1.)Tight hand synch (This Mission requires serious hand synch)
2.)Smooth looping (Timing is spot on especially in the first vid
3.)Precise pick control (No way around it, pick control is required to play this and you got it!)

Now this is what I'm talking about!! You nailed the mission and then nailed it on DOUBLE PICKING!! Well played and well fought soldier!!! You are ready for MISSION 7!!!!

Congrats Soldier, you just ...

LEVELED UP!!

Todd

On lesson 7 do you add another note to the pattern at the end (B string 14 fret) to make it feel more completed and give 18 notes to the pattern?

Yet again I'm back after over a year of being AWOL.

This is where I am with lesson 7 @ 100bpm my fingers seem to be fatiguing quite quickly at this speed

NICE IBBY!!!! smile.gif You start out really strong on this!! It gets a pinch wonky after a few bars but I think you've got the lick down!! Don't worry about pushing the speed on this, it's more important to play with precision than play fast. As you work through these, you'll notice that speed just happens almost by itself the further you dig in to the Missions. Also, once you know these licks/drills, you can play them on solos and in warmup so you have as long as you need to get them up to speed. For Bootcamp, I just need to see good form. You have great form on the first part of this and if you would have edited out the rest I'd have never known!! smile.gif But I appreciate the effort and honesty. Back off just a pinch and you'll have this licked.

You've got all the production elements down. Video/Audio/Synch/metronome, it's all there. That's half the battle. Just being able to produce vids with the elements in them. So kudos there!! Keep your rig "hot" and ready if you can so that it's ready for you when you are ready for it. I keep mine in sleep mode so I can just tap space bar and record. smile.gif

You have good form here but I fear you may be tensing a but much in your left arm due to the speed. It's tough to relax at speed, takes a bit of practice. Once way to force your hand to NOT tense is to use the THUMBLESS TECHNIQUE! Just take your left thumb off the neck. It makes you press with just the finger tips and prevents your hand from clamping hard which causes fatigue. Let me know if this helps!

I'm going to hold QUICK LICKS #3 for another week to give you a shot at it. It's a great lick and a great pull off drill in one smile.gif here is a link!

Happy Holidays Soldier!! I hope you have a great new year as well! I watched your vid again and I think you are probably ready to do your MISSION TAKE on #7 whenever you get the chance. Looking forward to it!

Hey Todd

I think if I make one new years resolution it is to stay focussed. So I am going to focus on the bootcamp and record one video a week. Other things can come and go from my practice sessions but I will make this my mainstay.

I can fairly comfortably do this bpm with minimal warm up, but 5 bpm faster and I still run into some trouble after a few cycles

This is using Bias FX rather than my Axe Fx, it feels like I'm being unfaithful!!!

WELL FOUGHT SOLDIER!!! This is what I like to see!! I dig how you took the Drill and made it in to something musical, something your own. Nice!!!!!! Let's Debrief!!!

MEDALS OF HONOR
*TiGHT AS A DRUM!: Your hand synch is TIGHT! No drift, no rush, no lag, perfect lock step!

*GETTING LOOPY!: Found a loop point and kept in the groove the entire time. Nice!

*GETTING PICKY!: Your Picking is spot on here, precise, and controlled.

You are making it look to easy Soldier!!! The good news is that crazy bits are coming your way Soldier!! Lean in to it!

I've started on Lesson 8 and trying to push the tempo upwards!!!
Also giving myself some extra work by doing the lick in the original position, up 12 frets and also over on the G and B string to get that pesky rolling finger action going.

Keep in mind Soldier, ZERO points for Speed! Only for precision. You'd be better off spending one hour each on 5 Missions than 5 hours making one mission faster. Onward!
