Hi George! Thanks for the update! I will wait for the JF take. I saw you connected at my Vchat but you didn't write at the chat. How was the experience? Did you find it useful?

Actually I did find it useful but I could not follow very much because I think there was more challenge than I can take at my level...
But generally my impression about your lesson is very good!!!!
Also I am having some trouble with the solo at the Metallica style at the 6th part, which uses hammer ons, pull offs and slides...
Can you help me with this one?
Thank you Gabriel!!!

Sure mate. At first, I recommend you to divide it in measures as I usually do at my Vchats with the exercises that I work. You would finally get little exercises to be practiced as a loop over metronome. There are basically 3 things to have in mind when you are playing this type of licks.id

1. Avoid unwanted noises

2. Notes intensity

3. Timing


Practice the exercises focusing on one of this topics per time. Let's say: You practice the mini-exercise (1 measure) 100% concentrated on avoiding unwanted noises for 5 minutes. Then 5 minutes focusing your mind and energy on notes intensity. Finally 5 minutes on timing. After 15 minutes, play the mini lick 10 minutes trying to apply everything. Then, go to the next mini exercise.

It would be cool to see you or hear a take of you playing the lick.

Hi George, I just saw your take. It's a good take but still needs work. The first important thing that I hear is that your guitar is a bit out of tune in the video. Then, regarding your playing, I think that your bending technique needs some work because most of the bends don't reach the correct pitch.

I recommend you to practice 5 minutes diary the first exercise of this video:



and maybe give a try to this lesson:

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Beginn...String-Bending/

Beside the bending issue, the lesson is ok, just need more days of practice to make you feel more comfortable and to sound tighter and with more feeling (dynamics and vibrato).
