Disciples, you have braved 1 year of inhospitable conditions, knuckle pushup before breakfast and constant threats of reprisals for any missed Tasks. Now we have arrived at our very last Bushido Task together....... pick up your guitars and shred for The Temple one last time...

Task 52: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Gary-Moore-Style-Ballad/

That's right. A classic from Piotr. This is quite a demanding piece for bending and staying in control. Just try not to rush in front ofthe ebat and you'll do it fine !

It's the last time I'll be giving you your orders.. so let's keep a good brave face on it and not get all wishy washy..

Grab your guitars and get working !

Congratulations gentlemen, you are among an elite few who braved The Temple and can wear the battle scars with pride ph34r.gif

Deadline is next Wednesday 6th Feb

Oh...... just wow... I am totally blown away by this ! The sincerity of the feel, the tone...... this is going to sound strange coming from someone who is below you in years but this makes me realise how proud I am of what you've achieved !! Seriously, I'm not just spouting rubbish, this is truly a revelation compared to the Zoom that started the very first Task !!

Congratulations, sir and the utmost respect. I salute you with a Donut !

Yo Dian, thanks for your video. Great take !!

Overall, you're bending and vibrato is very soulful and works brilliantly. In some cases you may want to experiment with a less agressive vibrato on parts like 0:30 where you're on the B string but not bending. On the bends the aggressive stuff is what you want but for those other notes in between try to control the vibrato a bit more. Maybe don't push it up so much. Or you could even try classical vibrato.. the sideways type thing.

It's useful to learn because you can use it as an alternative to the regular up/down vibrato smile.gif

Good on ya mate! Nice take. Good timing and bends in tune. Well done.
I've still got some work to do on those.
