Hi Gab,

Well, I started to play guitar since 3 years.
My level is maybe 2-3 for me .
I'm weak about theory, I have no knowledge.
My favorite styles are Metal ( Power, Heavy, Death ), Hard Rock and Instrumental.
My favorite bands/musicians are Nevermore, Kreator, Rage, Gojira and Patrick Rondat.
I can play guitar 30 minutes to 2 hours per day.

See you soon.

Hi mate, great to see you working on this one. Let me mark some things to have in mind during the next days of practice:

- Timing on the only down strokes palm mute riffs.
- Tuning: Some power chords don't sound perfectly tuned and I also note that the solo has pitch issues. Be sure to tune your guitar correctly before recording. (also check if this is not an extra pressure issue)
- Bending: Your bends don't reach the correct pitch in the solo section.
- Vibrato: your vibrato could be more consistent. It tends to be weak.

Please keep on working and focus on the things listed.

Cheers!

Hi Gab,

Thank you for your feedback.
My guitar won't stay in tune, but I will tune before practicing everyday.
I think my bend don't reach the correct pitch because my guitar was out of tune.
I will make an effort on vibrato.

See you soon smile.gif

Ok. What's the problem with your guitar? Old strings? Is it calibrated?

I don't know, I guess my strings are too old.
I bring my guitar at luthier 2 years ago and I have not changed the strings since this day.

I recommend Ernie ball, but there are many other good ones.

I have actually Earnie Ball strings ( 10-46 regular slinky) on my guitar, I like to try Cobalt version.
Do you try this strings model ?

Hi Gab,

I'm working actually on https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Millencolin-Style/
It reminds me Tony hawk pro skater biggrin.gif .

Here a take at 150 bpm

https://soundcloud.com/mathieu-nguyen-6/millencolin-style-150-bpm

I await delivery of my strings guitar.
I'm always working on that you said.

Hi mate, this is on the right track. Your playing is consistent on this take and the only thing that I can mark is the tuning issue that appears a bit here too, but as you are waiting to solve it, there is nothing else to do. Just continue practicing to be able to increase speed of this lesson.

Keep on the good job.

Hi,

I received my new strings, I will change tomorrow and I take this opportunity to clean the guitar neck .
Thank you for your feedback on this lesson, a little glad it looks good ( no timing issue, it's my fear tongue.gif )
I really enjoy playing this lesson, need more Punk rock like that.
