Welcome to SHRED BOOTCAMP! I'll be your Drill Instructor! And I do mean DRILL! As in a large power tool used in slasher films and Paul Gilbert concerts. Here is were you EARN THE LIVING DEATH out of your fingers and break through any speed bumps/barriers to become a MASTER CHIEF of Shred!

MISSON #1

THE MISSION

1.)Your mission is to go all the way back to the very start. The base of the mountain.

LESSON 1. http://bitly.com/gmclesson1

Which you will play SLOWWWWWWLLY, very SLOWWWLLLLYYYY until you master it at a crawl (As You'll Do With Each Mission, and focus on left hand FORM! Make it SUPER PERFECT!). Speed it up bit by bit until you feel your ready to take it to WAR (Any speed, it's up to you) Shoot a video and post it as a reply to this post. I'll then offer a constructive and brutally honest critique.

THE AFTERMATH

Upon nailing the crap out of lesson one at a speed you didn't think possible, and playing it a clean as a freshly waxed floor, you will be given your first insignia of Rank in BOOTCAMP and will proceed to LESSON/MISSION #2. You will continue this process until you are a walking, talking, BadA** Guitar God among men!!!!

Here is the link to your OWN PRIVATE BATTLEFIELD!!!

Practice!

Well fought Soldier!!! I would like to see your hand in future takes if possible smile.gif Also, if possible, try to use youtube (not a requirement just a suggestion) so that you can embed the videos in your thread. That way folks can see them right here @ GMC and you can have a quick review thread for seeing your progress.

ON TO THE BATTLE REVIEW!!!

Soldier, this is really nicely done!!! Well played and showing some very good techique all around. I think you are ready to start in with some advanced training here right from the start. To wit!!!!!!!


Take one more pass at this and add the following!!

1.)DOUBLE PICKING - Pick each note twice
2.)QUAD PICKING - Pick each note four times

Keep your good technique!! Palm mute, even strikes, clean playing, aggressive style!!!

I have high hopes for your body count Soldier!!!
