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 the link to your own PRIVATE HOUSE OF PAIN!...Er I mean.. SHRED!

Practice!

Yes !

i have sign up in the foreign legion for 10yo, it was holidays....
i like to joint christian soldier in kurdistan to fight against DAESH , but my wife won"t:

-" you are too old (42??), in bad shape (a dead knee) and you have a young son... so, NO, you stay here".... Damn (she's right)

so i joint the Todd bootcamp .....

Todd's boorcamp , Gabriel's Army ? too much ?

no i think it's complementary.

As a great man said:

LET'S ROCK*

I need you to make a VIDEO of you playing the mission so that I can see you play Soldier and make a critique. Do you have a web cam? If not, you can use your cell phone. Anything you like, and upload to youtube! Make sure to play with a metronome or click on the background so I can tell if you are doing it correctly!

You are really doing well Soldier!! However I did notice that your DOUBLE PICKING seemed like it might could use a pinch of extra blood. Slow down the metronome a bit for your DOUBLE PICK take so that each note is separate and distinct. Make sure to keep your palm mute solid as you have been doing as that will help the note separation.

You are VERY close on this one Soldier. One more bit of double picking maybe a pinch slower and cleaner and your ready to BADGE UP!
