Hi mate! Nice phrases happening there. It's time to take your technique to a new level and be able to play the trickier licks tighter. Here you have some 5/6 strings exercises:

Hi mate! Nice playing on this take. There are some moments in which you sound like Santana, then you start to become more personal and that's what we take and develop. Jamming over these type is very helpful, and combined with technique and theory work will take your playing to a new level.

What are you practicing nowadays? Do you have some kind of guitar routine?

Hi mate! Randy was an amazing guitar player. He had classical background and created his own style combining the rocker style of classics like Jimmy Page with the roots of shred guitar. He took his classical etudes and influences and combined them with his own way of playing heavy metal and helped to create the neoclassical guitar playing style. He had a very tight technique that combined alternate picking, sweep picking, tapping and legato.

The best ways to understand and study a guitarist in following this steps:

- Listen to all his music.
- Read about his bio and influences.
- If you find a musician that influenced him very much, consider analyzing him too.
- Learn some of his most used licks. You can use youtube for this, just write Randy Roads licks and you get this: LINK
- Analyze his compositions. Learn the riffs, the chord progressions and see what typè of tonalities and combination of chords he uses during the songs and also during his solos.
- Learn some of his solos. Isolate the difficult parts and create variations for diary practice. Analyze what is happening there. (theory)
- Practice the solos over the backing tracks and try to create variations of the licks to make them of your own.


Those are the guidelines that I would use to analyze a guitarist. Sometimes you also can check their guitar clinics, but in this case I think that it's not possible. You can check his GMC lessons:

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Randy-Rhoads-Style/
https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/one-on-one/tapping-2/


Let me know what you think and please count with me if you want my help /guidance to do it.

Hi mate! Metal is great for developing your guitar technique. The most used techniques are:

Palm Muting
Alternate Picking
Sweep Picking
Legato
Vibrato
Bending
Pinch Harmonics
Only Downstrokes Rhythms


The most used scales are:

Pentatonic Minor
Minor Aeolian
Phrygian Mode
Harmonic minor
Mixolydian Mode
Chromatic Scale

If you want, I can help you to design a Metal Course with weekly guitar routines to master this style. smile.gif

Classics! Great ones. What about music theory? Do you know the scales that I listed? What about tonalities, triads, chords, etc?

Hi mate, it says: Sorry! We can't find that track.
Did you try to access a private track, but were not logged in?
Maybe the track has been removed.

Hi mate. It sounds nice. There are some phrases very interesting and there are some other parts that need more definition (talking about the composition / improvisation). There is something usually called "Answer & question" that means a connection between phrases melodically that seems to be a dialogue. I think that you solo needs more connection among phrases. Your technique on this one is good, and there are only some fast licks that could sound smoother. There overall is ok.

We have to define your routine... do you have a list of suggested lessons that fill the topics?

Hi mate, !"Sweep Picking" should be only one part of your diary routine if you want to make the course effective. The idea is to select a lesson for each topic and work on it. I would like you to suggest some lessons to fill the first week routine. Then I will obviously help you with each technique, but at first we have to define the exercises / lessons.


WEEK 1:

Warming up + Stretches



HOUR 1:

- Alternate Picking
https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Altern...king-Workout-1/

- Legato
https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Bens-Land-Of-Legato/

- Theory
Learn new topics weekly from here: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_fo...showtopic=47852

HOUR 2:

- Palm Muting
https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/rhythm-gu...c-metal-rhythm/

- Sweep Picking
https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/solo-guit...picking-lesson/

- Theory


RECOMMENDED ALBUMS for this week:
