Well done Soldier! I usually promote warriors one Mission at a time but I appreciate your aggressive tactics of mission progress!!!!
I"m engaged in rebuilding my home studio from scratch and am pilfering wifi from any source possible at present. Be patient and bear with me during this transition. I'll have a look and give you a debrief ASAP!!! I plan to have my studio rebuilt in time to have a makeup lesson for this THURS.

Finally getting back in the swing of things and It's time to DEBRIEF!!!!! Let's take these one at a time Soldier. You may need to re play some missions so let's start at 1.

First off, WELL PLAYED!!! And SUPER CONGRATS on engaging in the toughest fight of your guitar playing life!!!! You showed real spirit on this one and I LOVED it right up until about 2:43 in to the vid. At that point, you sorta fell off the rails and lost grip on the count/timing. Your speed is fine, it's just not as connected to the metronome as it needs to be.

You could have probably stopped at around 2:00 and been fine. I do appreciate your aggressive tactics though!!! But if you are going to attempt that kind of speed you have got to stick the landing!!

Give it one more try on LESSON 1 soldier. Maybe slow down the last but just a smidge. Make sure you are playing in lock step with the metronome. IF you feel it slipping away, your probably playing outside your current range/ability. No shame in this, as it's a moving target. It will get better as we go!!!

Once more in to the Breach Soldier!!


Todd

BULLDOG!! Quick tips for Mastering Missions and "LEVELING UP!"

1.)Try one Mission at a time and focus on that one only.

2.)Play near the edge of your ability but not over the edge. If you lose synch with the metronome, you've gone over the edge. I don't care how fast you play, I only care how PRECISE you play. Speed is, after all, a "byproduct" of precision.

3.)Slow is sometimes better. Sometimes, playing a mission slow and precise, will get you "Badged Up" better than playing it at shred speed and missing some notes. I can hear quite well at high speeds since I often play in that range so if a note is off, I"ll hear it.

ONE MORE TIME SOLDIER!! I see great potential in your playing, don't stop now!!
