It's time to practice at this tempo but over the slow backing track.

Good job mate! The hard work is showing important results and progress!! This new take is much better compared with the previous that you've recorded with backing. Please continue practising at this tempo to make timing even tighter before moving to a faster tempo.

Thanks Gabriel! It is always fun when you are able to notice progress and important results in my playing. I will keep on practicing at this tempo. I have also decided to start learning all the notes before I start learning every Major scale position to better visualize scales.

Here is my take for the Metallica Collab.=)

And as for Gary Clark lesson, I will keep practice to make timing better and share a take this weekend.

I also posted it in the Metallica Collab Thread for more feedback.

Hi Alex,

I've noted that you are using E minor to solo, I recommend you to use E blues scale and less notes, trying to create more defined and simpler melodies. In the pre-chorus, you have to switch to F# minor pentatonic, and then you have to get back to E minor penta in the chorus and last riff.

Try this scale and share a new take.

Thanks Gabriel for your feedback smile.gif
I will do my best! Should I try to go more with the beat?
I am not sure if I am able to switch to F# minor pentatonic in the pre-chorus so perhaps I will just stop playing for that part.

Hi Alex, I mean creating simpler phrases using pentatonic, something that you would sing over the track.

It's ok to stop playing in the pre chorus.

Hi Alex, good job. This is sounding better. The main thing to improve is timing. You tend to play the licks/notes a bit after the beat. Please listen to your take and let me know if you can note this. Then, when you practice, pay attention to it.

There are more details to adjust, but the first step is to be able to play it tighter.

Hey Gabriel
No I have some problem hearing it, after listening to the take now I can notice this only 2-3 times.

I know that I have progressed in my timing issues but I feel that it is something that I have been struggling with now for quite a long time. I never tried to fix my timing issues before I started working with you and once my timing issues are gone it will be a huge milestone for me.

But I do really want to work on my timing because my friend is starting a music group so if I can I will go there every week and play with other musicans. Do you think that can be a Good idea?

Hi Alex,

I recommend you to put all your focus on timing and try this method:

- Use a daw like reaper to practice and record the lessons that you know over the backing tracks.

- Work on VERY small sections. For example, practice the main riff of Gary Clark's lesson. Practice the riff over the backing track and record it.

- Listen to what you've recorded. Try to notice if you are playing tight or if you have timing issues. Detect if you are playing after or before the beat. You can see the audio file waveform to see if it's tight.

- Work on this method every day during 15 days and share the results.


Is it clear? Are you in?

I think that you need to practice in this way this lesson and some other ones. It can take some months, but it will be a great investment for your future as guitarist. Being able to visualize what you are doing wrong can be very helpful to fix the problem. But it's not automatic, it takes some time.

Yes I agree, even if it may not be the most fun thing to practice I am 100% sure I will benefit from it. I will definitely practice in this way. Should I spend 1 hour each day to this or more?

You can dedicate even less. 30/40 minutes is ok, but do it EVERYDAY.
