DRILLING AND KILLING!!
First off, NICE AXE!!!! Glad to see it in the field of battle!! What do you think of it? How does the 27 fret neck feel? Anyhoo!

Let's Debrief!!!

MEDALS OF HONOR


1.)Solid Picking/Fretting: Your right and left hands are talking to each other and speaking the same language. Nice!

2.)Spot on The Beat: You are right on top of the beat and playing with a great deal of precision here. Spiff!!

3.)Timing: It feels like a solo rather than a hand workout so well done there!! You made short work of this one Soldier!


In short,

You Just......

!!!LEVELED UP!!!

Another Mission, YET ANOTHER RECORD!!!! Blazing a trail Soldier!!

it's very confortable, the 27 frets give you a lots of space for play, even i do not have habits to play in high fret, i can without fear to be out of the neck !!

The guitar is light, quick, confortable and sound like hell, then the floyd is acurate ,even if it's not he best from ibanez, nut it done it's own job well.

i erally like to have larger fret , like my jackson RR.

About mission #45

do i record the warming up part or only the part A ?

Glad you like the guitar smile.gif I still want one of those myself!!! They are still a bit expensive here on ebay, and don't come up for sale very often. The only one on ebay like yours is in Germany! And it costs almost $1,000!!!! I forget what you said you paid but if it was around $500 you stole the guitar smile.gif

Good eye Solder!! I was doing the shorthand version of the licks just to demonstrate the techniques involved. You did a great job on this one except for one thing. During the hammering/tapping section, I want you to strike the 12th fret with the right hand finger and then let the open string ring before applying the fret. This makes a four note group. 12th, open, fret position 1, fret position 2, instead of a 3 note group. Make sense? I can make the video match the drills closer if it is helpful smile.gif

This is a very hard mission soldier!! I'm holding you RECORD BREAKERS to a very high standard. Look at that first lick again. It's just barely off. I can record quick vid if you like. It's a bit tricky on the timing.

Feel free to post any progress vids, or send me links or have me make demo vids or what not. I know this next bit is a really tough slog. Nobody has ever made it this far, so you are breaking new ground. I'm happy to help however I can wink.gif

WELL FOUGHT SOLDIER!!!!! Reviewing this Mission has made me realize that I need to rework the Tablature involved. The drill licks are just slightly different than the solo licks that I based them on and I'm not going to penalize you for that. You've shown persistence and patience, both qualities to be praised in a Warrior and I think you have a good handle on this Mission and are ready for what's next!! Let's Debrief!!


Let's Debrief!!!

MEDALS OF HONOR


1.)You continue to display very solid technique on all fronts Soldier. Keep it up!!

2.)Picking and Muting, and hand Synch are all looking good.

3.)Perhaps more important, your sense of timing is very tight. This takes quite a bit of practice and working through the boring bits with a metronome in the woodshed.

In short Soldier, this is a really tough bit to get through and even more confusing as the bits in the drills differ slightly from the bits in the demo solo, but you made it despite that!! Congrats and get ready for MISSION 47+ they get a bit NUTS in spots, but you can handle it!!




In short,

You Just......

!!!LEVELED UP!!!
Another Mission, ANOTHER RECORD!!!!
