Number 19 awaits, but which part am I supposed to record? All of it? Including the warm up?

I think you mean # 20? The warmup is just for practice. Try to record the other bits smile.gif They are all sorta related.

GREAT TO SEE YOU BACK IN THE FIGHT SOLDIER!!!! Wielding your spiff Ibby as a bonus!! Sorry to hear of your computers issues sad.gif It's a struggle to be sure. On to the DEBRIEF!!!

You are really spot on with this one Nice Axe there too!!


MEDALS OF HONOR
1.)Picking is on point! Your picking is very clean and as a bonus you are not losing your palm mute during picking!!!!!! Well done.
2.)Muting spot on! You keep a good solid palm mute the entire time and don't let a lot of extra noise happen which is great to see! Never underestimate the value of a planted right hand!
3.)Pacing is great as well!! You don't rush or lag during the entire bit. As I always say, you gotta learn to play like a robot if you wanna Shred like a God!

This is not a simple bit and involves a TON of string and fret traverse and you just NAILED IT. I"d challenge you to take this lick and now try it as a solo lick on any backing, write something simple if needed to match the key to take advantage of muscle memory, and try to let the lick "breathe", E.G. don't play it evenly. Let some notes linger and some notes not, to see how moving around the beat can change the way such a structured lick can sound. smile.gif

In short, you just ....

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

GREAT to see you back in the fight Soldier!!! I must say it's great to see that rare Ibby back in the fight as well!!! It's an awesome weapon of war to be sure. You wield it here with great authority and aggressive zeal. It's heart warming to see Soldier and Weapon working as one!!!

Let's Debrief...

MEDAL OF HONOR
1.)So proud to see your muting get this good!! Not lifting at all. This one thing is something I really try to teach. You got it smile.gif

2.)Precise as a Scalpel. Nothing out of place, no lagging or rushing, just killer!

3.)CONTROL: No extra string noise, no unwanted notes and very even and deliberate pacing. Score!!!

In short, you really did KRUSH it!!!! There are tougher bits ahead and you are fast approaching our highest existing rank in bootcamp. Congrats smile.gif

You just.....

LEVELED UP!!!

WOW!! As I mentioned on your youtube page, This is impressive. Seriously impressive. Not one player in 1000 can do this lick properly in my experience. You nailed it. Left hand only, no pick, perfect right hand fretboard mute. Nice smile.gif

You have developed some really strong left hand finger technique which is critical to pull this off. At this point, picking is really just a tone choice. You can play pretty much any lick with just one hand smile.gif Congrats!

MEDAL OF HONOR
1.)Welcome to the club Soldier!! It's a darn small club!!!! (Folks who can go pure "lefty")
2.)Pacing. Well done on pacing the lick. Keeping this lick evenly paced is not easy, and you did smile.gif
3.)Aggression. This lick goes well with a dose of ARRGGHH!! Well provided by our resident Viking.

In short, you just......

LEVELED UP!!

That is some very fine playing to be sure! You make it look easy!! I can tell you are spot on with the timing just by listening. I would like to see you do a MULTI PICK version of it though smile.gif Dealers choice, double, triple or quad. Gotta keep you challenged!!!

First off, the video quality is SUPERB. The color, contrast, everything. It really shows off the wonderful color on the Axe that i keep wanting for myself smile.gif Frame rate is good too. I'd say use this as much as possible. Looks pro smile.gif On to the debrief!!!

WELL FOUGHT SOLDIER!! This lesson is all about fret travel. About being able to take a scale and run it up the neck while making it sound like you are not moving your hand.

MEDALS OF HONOR

1.)TRAVELING: Nice fret travel! Not only traversing strings, but traveling up the fretboard in a very smooth and precise fashion.

2.)PICKING PRECISION!! No wasted movement, or effort. This is idea. No picking from the elbow either!!!!

3.)MUTING MADNESS: VERY good job muting on this as it's one of those licks that is prone to cause string noise. If you lift your mute you run the risk of sympathetic vibrations of the other strings. Very hard to teach this and twice as hard to learn generally smile.gif But you seem to have it down!!!

LEVELED UP!

Oops! In my excitement I forgot to edit out the focus square smile.gif And it's just a demo of the program, so there's a watermark.
