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!

WOW!
This is just freaking killer Soldier. What you did with this backing is just great. You used many bits from lessons past and present, you used many techniques from lessons past and present, and you threw your own "vibe" on it and gave many licks a very 'Steve Vai / John Petrucci" vibe. Who could ask for more?

Your ability to link together the bits that are required and smoothly integrate the bits that you brought to the table yourself, is impressive. Being able to construct a solo is IMHO the truest test of a lead player. Not every player is a lead player. Some players are "Rythm" players. Which is fine and God Bless them. Good lead players though are a different batch. It's great to see you continue to become a really good, expressive, musical, lead guitarist. Congrats on that wink.gif


Let's Debrief!!!

MEDALS OF HONOR


1.)Picking and Fretting Precision: Picking and fretting in a synched up manner is not an easy thing. Right/Left hand synch is something I always focus on in my lessons and you've got it DOWN.

2.)Musical Interpretation: The point of this MISSION is to use all that you've learned to interpret a solo and you NAILED IT. Adding your own bits to Mission bits. Nice.

3.)Variety of Technique and Tone: You mix and match a wide variety of techniques and tonal variation using your picking and fretting style as well as slides, pull offs, precision picking and palm muting. Well freaking done.

In short Solder......

You Just......

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

Super Nice!!!
We spent a lot of time on this lick in our Vid Chat sessions and you clearly have put the time in outside of that. You have this lick DOWN COLD. Inversions can be tricky to be sure. Once you have it, you may find yourself using it in solos smile.gif I use some sort of inversion in wads of solos. I just love the way it works over nearly any backing wink.gif Even if just a few notes.


Let's Debrief!!!

MEDALS OF HONOR


1.)PICKING LIKE A MONSTER: Your picking is getting extreme and that's a good thing smile.gif Precision and control. The two keys to the kingom smile.gif

2.)PRECISION, PRECISION, PRECISION: Speed is a byproduct of precision as you know, I've noticed your precision going steadily up of late smile.gif Keep it going!

3.)PINKY POWER!!: I love to see you using the pinky and not losing any precision or dexterity when doing it. Mastering the pinky is a life long pursuit, you have a really big head start on it!!

In short Solder......

You Just......

!!!LEVELED UP!!!

Also, you are yet again breaking new records with each Mission. Blazing a trail Soldier!!

This is just top notch work and a big part of the reason you are so far along the path in the BOOTCAMP!! Put simply you practice and play your pants off!! This is very well played and I like how you added your own thing on top at the end. Showing not only a mastery of the technical bits, but creativity on top of it in order to take it further and make it more musical. I hope you get the chance to do more of these! I'm sure other folks find them as inspiring as I do. Oh, and. NICE IBBY!!!! smile.gif

MEDALS OF HONOR

*RIGHT HAND PLANTED: Zero right hand drift. Keeping a solid mute the entire time allows one to pick any string, fretted or open, without any unwanted string noise. This is tough to master. You have a really good grip on it!

*SYNCH LIKE A CLOCK: Right hand strike and left hand fret are locked in step just as they should be. That open string lick is built to show any gaps in your synch. Good news, don't see any smile.gif

*BONUS POINTS: Going above and beyond playing the bit, you interpreted it to other strings while keeping perfect form. Well done smile.gif

In short your just...

LEVELED UP!!!!!!!

*You are only a few Missions away from the vaunted 5 Chevron Badge. Making it to 5 Chevrons is something that is really quite rare indeed.
