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!

Here is your link your personal training ground/HELL!

bitly.com/hadjuksbootcamp

Practice!
Todd

WELL FOUGHT SOLDIER!!!! This is very well done. Your playing is very even and measured which is the entire point of this lesson. I think you are ready for a bigger challenge!! Ready?

1.)DOUBLE PICK!!! Try this one more time using DOUBLE PICKING (E.G. pick each note twice)

FIGHT ON SOLDIER!!

THAT'S EARNING IT SOLDIER!! I can see some great work here and I think you are again ready for SPECIAL DUTY!!! Go to the MED STATION and get that thing wrapped and come back to the battle and try this same lick with DOUBLE PICKING. This is REALLY HARD so don't give up when your hands start to complain a bit!!! Don't play to the point of pain soldier, but keep at it til you can run this as a DOUBLE PICK LICK.

Keep the same great precision, palm mute, and clean picking!! Just double it!!

FIGHT !!!!
