Threw in a little extra stretch for you. 0-5-10 instead of 0-5-9. It's in the second half of the video smile.gif

Worked ahead a bit while at the stretches. There was no picking pattern in the lesson, so I assume it was all to be legato as noted.

NICE STRETCH! Soldier, You have some serious STRETCH going on!!!! Not to mention, very good control despite the long finger gap. Let's debrief!.......


MEDALS OF HONOR
1.)Pinky Power!! You not only play the stretch, you go beyond it and do with style and grace.

2.)SOLID string traverse, per usual smile.gif Without any string noise.

3.)Back and forth with picking and fretting is spot on with no hesitation or misses.

This is a WIDE stretch to make and to make it and keep one's playing even and steady, while not adding string noise, takes some doing. You do it quite well smile.gif In short, you just....

!!!LEVELED UP!!!!

This is very well played and your technique is on par with many of the best players I've ever had the privilege to teach smile.gif One quick thing though, as noted in the notes on the lesson, the backing is in E even though the tablature is in A. It's done in A, to help work the stretch a bit, then we transpose to E (Just moving to the 12th fret E string as our root note) to match the key of the backing and to work in a much tighter confined space further up the neck.

So your playing is spot on, it's just not quite in key with the backing. This is the chunk from the notes on that lesson.

"we will transpose it to E Minor (12th Fret) and use it as a solo lick with backing track. Here is our first tablature."

As you are now one of the Highest Ranking Soldiers EVER, and about to move the the second in 5 years, FOUR CHEVRON BADGE, I'd like to have you play it in E if for nothing else than the benefit of others to follow to see a good example of the lesson being done. Can you give me one more Soldier?

That's what I"m talking about Soldier!! You are feeling the notes and letting the backing guide you. That's the secret of crafting good solos. Even though you are semi restricted to the scale bits in the lesson, you make it your own and interpret it, in light of what you are hearing in the backing. The two combine to create a new piece of music. Well freaking done smile.gif

MEDALS OF HONOR

1.)Precision Pick Control: You do a great job of pick control on this one.

2.)PALM MUTE MADNESS: Very clean palm mute per usual.

3.)Played with confidence and aggression, more please!!

In short you KILLED IT!!!!

In short, you just ...

!!!LEVELED UP!!!!

Soldier, you are really ripping it up!!!! You are only a few lessons from the top slot at this point!

MEDALS OF HONOR

1.)Finger Traverse: Many of these lessons focus on picking while moving your fingers between strings. You have gotten really good at this which is the foundation of long runs.

2.)Very good muting per usual!! You have a very firm grasp on muting and it makes your technique sound nice and clean!

3.)Multi picking from Hell! Your multi picking has really gotten good.

You are Drilling and Killing Soldier! Keep it up! In other words, you just....

!!!LEVELED UP!!!!

Soldier, you are a freaking MACHINE!!!!!!!! It's great to see you tearing through these smile.gif

MEDALS OF HONOR

1.)Finger and Pick Traverse: Combining these two things is just not easy. You have a really good handle on it and it's impressive.

2.)You've adapted the "Static Mute" (E.g. keeping your palm mute while picking from the Wrist) to your own style and it's working well. Certain licks are just off limits until one masters this to some degree. You have it down.

3.)Multi picking from Hell! Your Multipicking is as smooth as Glass!!!!

You are UNSTOPPABLE Soldier!!! In short, you just....

!!!LEVELED UP!!!!

Soldier, you are knocking on Heavens door, as it were! Also, you are about to cross a very vaunted threshold. Only one other player has EVER achieved the FOURTH CHEVRON BADGE. That would be, of course, our current Ranking Champion, FZALFA. 39 is the crossover point. So you are right there wink.gif

Let's Debrief!


MEDALS OF HONOR

1.)Precision, Precision, Precision. Resulting in Speed, Speed, Speed.

2.)Pinky Power! : Great use of all fingers, especially the oft neglected PINKY!

3.)MULTI PICKING POWER BONUS: Very clean and articulate multi picking.

In other words, you just...

WELL FOUGHT SOLDIER!! This lick is something we did quite a bit in our Online Vid Chat lessons. As I remember, you had a firm grasp of it then, and now! This is called a "Scale Inversion", I did a lesson on this topic for the GMC lesson archive. Here is a link to it. https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Picking-In-Thirds/

Anyhoo, let's DEBRIEF!!!

MEDALS OF HONOR

1.)Picking from Wrist (Extremely Articulate I might add!)
2.)Palm Mute held fast while picking like a maniac. (Never pulled off the bridge)
3.)Precision and Speed together with a very steady pace. (solid as a rock!)

In other words, YOU KILLED IT!!! You are more than ready for what is coming. The lessons get a bit more complicated from here on out. But that should be no problem for you Soldier!!!! You are more than ready. Reload!!!

Also, it is my duty to inform you that you are now the second Soldier in Bootcamp History to EVER achieve the much vaunted FOURTH CHEVRON BADGE. Super congrats there!
In other words, you just LEVELED UP!!!

Here's 40!

I know you said to march the pattern up, and that usually means to play the same pattern, but I decided to spice it up a bit and play the same notes, moving it up within the "scale" instead, cause it would make it a bit more interesting.



I misread the first (warm up) exercise, I think, and it was supposed to be legato? Here's a legato version:



And here are the tabs for the "extended" and redeveloped exercise:

No Enemy can withstand the aggression and persistence of FIRE!!!!

You are drilling and killing Soldier!!!!

Let's Debrief!!!

MEDALS OF HONOR


1.)FINGER TRAVERSE: Just like the last Mission, this one has picking/fretting traverse from low all the way to high string. You handle it like a champ!

2.)PALM MUTE: Your ability to strike each string and traverse while striking and not lift up off the bridge is something that takes wads of woodshedding and yours has clearly paid off!!

3.)MULTI PICKING FROM HELL: Also carried over from your last Mission is your killer use of MULTI PICKING which has expanded from Doubles to Triples!!! This requires different strike and traverse patterns and you walk through it like a hot machine gun barrel through butter!!!

In short Solder......

You Just......

!!!!!LEVELED UP!!!!!



You remain TIED FOR TOP DOG!!!!! 41 is now the highest mark EVER achieved! From this point on, you are breaking records with every Mission you defeat. Congratulations Soldier!
