Hi Gab

I work a Stephane Lucarelli's lesson : Creative arpeggios Phrasing

I worked at 80% speed, I haven't yet found the good tone , I have to refine.
This lesson is hard, it need a good relaxation to get fluidity.
I work sequences isolated to improve these things

I try to correct my posture
I put his neck on a horizontal axis but it is not natural , I must think before you play.

What do you think about it ?

Hi MisterM! This lesson is evolving really well. It's very helpful to practice at a tempo that you can play the notes clearly and then slowly increase tempo every day.

The new posture looks very natural for me. I think that you will feel it well after some more days or maybe weeks of practice so I recommend you to keep it.

Your tone doesn't sound bad but for any reason it sounds like "far". I assume that you are recording your guitar by line to a daw or something like that, so maybe the problem is the mix between dry signal and effect. Try setting your tone with a lower level of delay/reverb. I also think that some more presence to make it appear more in the mix.

Besides this lesson, what other things are you currently working?

Hi MisterM! Thanks for inserting all these videos here. It is a good reference to have them here.

Nice take on the blues lesson. You can play all the licks correctly at tempo. The next step would be to focus more on small details that make Sinisa's playing very expressive. His way of managing dynamics, vibrato and how he bends are so unique and deep. Try to go further with it.

Hi Gab

I'm on holidays, I work the current lessons, they improve from day after day.
I practise exercises of independence for fingers. It's sometimes difficult has to realize, but it's effective

So, I learn a new lesson to break the routine.

Open-String-Pull-Off-Riff

I had begun several months ago but I didn't understand the technique.
Actualy, after 3/4 days, I'm capable of playing it is 100 %.
I have to work the dynamics and tone, but I'm very satisfied, I shall make a video in my return.

See you soon, good one holidays Gab....

Hi MisterM!

Good job with this two lessons. Both are getting really close!

The jazz lesson sounds clean and consistent. There are only two elements that I would like to mark that you should have in mind during the next days of practice: dynamics & swing. If I compare your take with the original lesson I notice that there is more room for dynamics on this tune. Also, you are playing the licks even with the tempo while Piotr plays the licks with some retard to give a swing feel. Please listen again to the original take and pay attention to this detail which is fundamental in jazz.

The blues lesson sounds great. You have good feeling, timing and vibrato on this one. The only thing to improve that I note is again dynamics.
Other than that, it rocks.

Keep on the great job!

Hi Gab

I work a open string pull off, I made a video for watching my mistakes.
It is difficult to press on the string of the neck's head having played the harmonic,
I must work speed and precision. I shall work on the metronome slowly to acquire the movement

I continue to work other current lessons.....

- Jazzy Blues Phrasing on Workshop
I gave the best of myself, swing is difficult.... I'll redo in a few months

- Jazz funk Licks II soon Workshop
- Sort Phrase Blues soon Workshop
I'll make a take before, you can give me a last advice. (in a few weeks)

- Creative arpeggios
I progress....Tone is better, Palmute, sweeping, slide, I try to get a smooth playing like stephane Lucarelli

Hi MisterM! Great to see you working hard!

The video that you shared shows that you are on the right track and that this only needs more days of practice to feel more comfortable. The more you practice the smoother the rhythm and harmonics will sounds.

Beside some picking precision, this take needs to sound tighter and groovier. I wonder if you are using your foot to follow the tempo of the backing while you play. It's a good trick to feel the rhythm inside and be able to go more connected with it. You tend to go before the beat so trying to think that the parts a bit slower can also help.

Keep on the hard work! wink.gif
