Hi mate! It's really cool to see you working. I wonder if you practiced the Sweep Picking exercises. I checked each of the files and these are my comments about it:

Blues in session:
I like your tone and there are some nice phrases here. However I still think that you have to adjust your technique here because there are many licks with wrong or muted notes, as well as some bends that don't reach the correct pitch.

Sallama:
This one sounds very fresh for me, and reminds me a bit to Mars Volta. Is it an influence for you? Once again your tone is really cool an your playing is ok, but with some tuning issues in some notes and bends. There are some notes out scales here and there (for example starting at 2:13), you have to pay attention to the scale that you have to use there.

Yngwie Malmsteen Cover:
Is this a Malmsteen cover? or just you improvising over a Malmsteen style backing track? In this solo there are many tuning issues and I think that the reason is that you aree not sure the scale you have to use over it... am I wrong?

Lay down sally cover:
This one has issues with the scale but also with your timing. We have to work on this! The backing sounds good!


Ok mate, based on this samples, we should start some ear training as well as working on improvisation. What do you think?

Thanks for replying. First of all, unfortunately I know that yngwie malsteen cover isn't even close to him biggrin.gif
And I know that ı have little timing problems But I am sure that blues in sesion and sallama is good

Besides, I haven't practised sweep picking since July cuz I have been to holiday but I would be great If you could give some practises
And can you give some david gilmour exercises ı like his sound

I know that this lesson is very tricky, but we could start with the slower backings to start incorporating Malmsteen style licks and Sweep Picking.

What do you think?

an regarding Gilmour style, we have some cool lessons here. What about starting with this one?

Hey mate! This sounds very beautiful!! I like the tone and fx settings, it sounds very close to Gilmour. There are some notes that sound out of scale, some bends that doesn't reach the correct pitch (starting at 2:27) and a fast licks that could sound tighter (for ex at 2:33) but with some little work this could be a real masterpiece.
