I've figured out pinch harmonics and I can almost get them perfectly every time.

Let's wake up these useful threads! smile.gif

I've improved during the past week mostly in alternate picking, sweep picking and vibrato (all of which are crucial parts of Mr. Lavendell's Neoclassical three-level intermediate solo). The most important thing, however, is my training routine and motivation. Improvement in motivation and determination are underrated, since they are the keys to learning everything else.

I learned Sex on Fire, The Unforgiven III, and came to the conclusion that, by playing along to a backing track that is 20 bpms faster then the original song, am able to play most of the riffs from Master Of Puppets flawlessly, up to speed, using downstrokes, which made me very happy smile.gif

And I am getting quite acquainted with the A Harmonic Minor scale because of Zsolt's Modal Madness lesson!
Thanks Zsolts! This scale rocks!

It's been over two years since I started this thread. It's good to see its still twitching biggrin.gif

I've been working on song ideas lately, one of these days I'll get around to recording them all decently and put them in the uploads forum.

Nothing to add this week. I keep improving in the same areas, except for the motivation and training routine part, which have remained the same for two weeks now. Today I feel like I'd improved a little. I'll train a little more today to remain that feeling. smile.gif

I just started on the dick dale lesson today. Though I can play it easily enough, it reminded me that I need to work on my AP more.

Today I found out I'm very bad at legato, and my AP is waaaaaaaaaaaaaay better tongue.gif
So I'm gonna work on that instead, any suggestions would be welcome, 'coz I know there are different ways to practice it.

Did you mean you're gonna work on your AP or legato? smile.gif

For AP there are several possibilities, for example Modal Madness, Mr. Vold's Picking exercise, and Mr. Lavendell's Neoclassical etude #1 and - #2, not forgetting the three-level neoclassical solo series.

For legato I'm not so sure, but from the "Shred" exercises you can find "legato" lessons.

Sorry, I meant legato. I've already done Modal Madness 1 and 2, and can play them at about 160 bpm(triplets), which I think is already pretty fast tongue.gif About legato I'm pretty much clueless because I never seriously practiced it, to be honest.

Well, I think this would be a good starting point then, since most the scales are probably familiar to you already, and you can practice that piece slowly, too. smile.gif Also pieces like "Hammer on dude" and so on are good.

Check out the "Legato" part for the "Shred guitar" area. There are many good lessons there. smile.gif
