WELL FOUGHT SOLDIER!!! ECON PICKING can be a serious struggle of the damned at first. But it's worth it!! You've got really good technique here and really good timing and I like your guitar too smile.gif

However, I know you've got WADS of fight in you that we are not seeing in this video so in addition to the ECON version, I want you to DOUBLE and yes TRIPLE PICK this to show your AGGRESSIVE STYLE!!!!! You've got the ECON bit nailed!!!! ONCE MORE IN TO THE BREACH!!!

WELL FOUGHT!!! This is NOT an easy bit to pick. You may have noticed that the pattern is trying to disconnect your playing hand from your picking hand. You have to use quite a bit of focus to force the two together again and I must say you've nailed it and even in picking in TRIPLES!!!! Let's debrief!

Let's Debrief....

Talk about just KRUSHING it!! I think you may be getting help from Odin, simply due to your epic beard. Or perhaps the spirit of SPARTA!!! Or maybe just ardent practice!! Either way....

MEDAL OF HONOR
1.)DOUBLE PICKING and TRIPLE PICKING like a MAD MAN!!!!!
2.)KILLER RIGHT HAND CONTROL on the bridge.
3.)TIGHT HAND SYNCH!!!


Soldier!!! You have just .....

Soldier you are on the WAR PATH!!! This is not an easy bit to play and you multi picked it like a PRO!!! Nicely done.

Let's Debrief....

You walk the river of Blood Soldier. I can it's paying off!! At first, I thought it was just the Beard, but now I see that hard work and ardent practice are the real factors!!


MEDAL OF HONOR
1.)MULTI PICKING LIKE A BOSS!!
2.)PLANTED RIGHT HAND (zero extra string noise)
3.)TIGHT HAND SYNCH!!!

Above all you rotated the right hand instead of moving it across the strings which is something I'm thrilled to see. You've taken all the lessons to heart and your playing really shows it!! In short Soldier you just.....

!!!!LEVELED UP, AND GOT YOUR 2nd CHEVRON!!!!

Been trying to push beyond 130 bpm, but it's about where I start losing control, both with singles and with doubles:

Well Fought Soldier!! 130 is quite brisk for this lick as the picking acts almost like a hand/speed brake. If you want to try it a bit faster, use a semi legato technique and hammer/pull some of the notes ala Paul Gilbert and you will be shocked at how much quicker you can run this as a lick.

As far as getting quicker picking every note, that happens one BPM at a time. I"m certain you could push it with ardent practice but, like I said, 130 is BRRRIIISSSKK!!!!


Let's Debrief....

You walk the river of Blood Soldier. I can it's paying off!! At first, I thought it was just the Beard, but now I see that hard work and ardent practice are the real factors!!


MEDAL OF HONOR
1.)Tight, Precise Control
2.)Zero Extra String Noise
3.)Super Clean Palm Mute

Your technique is solid as a ROCK Soldier!!! You have got this lick down. One more thing to try, now that you have the lick, try to do a version where you "let it breathe" a bit. Start slow and work in to the speed. It provides nice contrast when using it in a solo.

Your on a rip and tear Marathon Soldier!! You just ...

!!!!LEVELED UP

FIGHT ON SOLDIER!!!!!!
Here is a quick preview in "Shred Mode"!
(as you might use in a solo)
