NICE!!! Slow and steady wins the race. This is one of the 'Sleeping Policeman" licks that sounds like it should be played fast when in fact it's really a study in precision. Push it to far and it falls apart. The good news is that the speed will come with repetition. In the demo vid, I'm playing it at full tilt. That's as fast as I can play it without it just turning to mush and it's still not that fast. Pushing the precision to meet the speed is the crucible. It's the fire in which we burn!!!
Let's Debrief!!
MEDALS OF HONOR

*TRAVERSE: The first thing I'm looking for on Mission 5 is STRING TRAVERSE. If you don't do smooth string traverse, this just falls apart. That's why I have it looping on a traverse point. To make your fingers constantly go back and forth traversing strings. Once you slowed down a pinch, your traverse is spot on!![/size]
*PACE:It's tempting to rush or lag the bits that feel easier, say notes on one string, then change pace during the tricky bit, say during traverse, not so here! Nice and smooth the way I like it!!

*ARTICULATION: The last box I need to have you tick is pick articulation. if your articulation is poor, yet again, lick falls to crud. Good news is that all of your time spent in quick licks is paying off!! You have very fine articulation here. Score![size=2]



LEVELED UP!!!

It's great to see you jumping in to BOOTCAMP!! It's a different challenge than Quick Licks but you are up for it!!!

Thanks buddy, now I finally understand that speed is not a prerequisite for boot camp and precision is the key.

Cheers buddy

Drill 6 take 1 up for scrutiny Sarge. Sorry about video quality, I forgot some of the settings I used on my old computer and I also forgot to use the noise gate on the Helix.

Better!!! You got the lick Down Soldier!!! I want you to be the best you can so I went back and reviewed this many times. Your playing drifts from the metronome over time. It's a tricky lick so i can imagine it's hard to keep listening to clicks and pegging it to pick strikes. I think you may just need to slow down a pinch. I appreciate you trying to push yourself Soldier!! I Encourage it! One should push past where they can play, every time. It just doesn't always work for Combat Mission Videos.

I hate to send you back to the front Soldier! I just can't let this slide with that much drift from the click. As always, no speed requirements. Back off the speed just a pinch and I think you will badge up and be on to your next Mission!!

Thanks Sarge,

I did hear myself drifting BUT only when I played the video back and I was outta time to do another one so I posted for critique.

Gotta earn it buddy and if that means going back to the pit then that's what has to be done cool.gif

Cheers

Phil

UPDATE: Take 3 up for scrutiny Sarge. Make me earn it buddy wink.gif For some reason YT messed with the vid/audio sync.

BINGO!!! No that's what I'm talking about! Let's Debrief!!
MEDALS OF HONOR

ALT PICKING: Your doing great on your Alternate Picking here. It's consistent and that's what I'm looking for. Nice!!

MUTE: Very solid work on the palm mute. Also critical. If you can't mute, you will get string noise. Not a problem here!!!

SYNCH: Right/Left hand synch is the core of this drill. If your synch is off, the entire thing will fall apart. Again, not a problem here! Your synch is spot on!
After a couple of near misses, you got this Soldier!!!! You are ready for what lies in wait!! Keep your weapons loaded!!
You just..
LEVELED UP!!!!

I'm back Sarge, I know this is more strict than Quick Licks so here is take 1 of BC7 for you to tear down wink.gif

I couldn't get the metronome to render in Reaper, just a click track. If you know how to render the metronome please share. Cheers.

You've sorted Quick Licks, you are ready for the next Challenge! As for getting a metronome track to render in reaper, here is a quick vid. What you have works too!


I notice around 10/11 seconds in your Mission Video that it almost sounds like a dissonant chord is being played probably just an artifact of fretting the next note before pulling up the previous one. I can tell you are pushing the speed to get some momentum going which makes this more difficult all around. This is only Mission 7 after all, you got another 400 or so to go, along the way, you will work out the method for your fingers to move faster. Along the way it's really important to focus on precision so that you don't end up playing briskly but mushy.

If this were a quick lick, this would be more than enough. But as you say, this is Bootcamp where precision rules the day. I'd say maybe slow down just a pinch so that you can get better separation on the notes. and give this one more go!!!

Thanks Sarge,

I'll give it as many goes as it needs buddy, I want you to be tough on me, this is bootcamp after all.

I haven't watched the vid yet but I did use the clock track in Reaper unfortunately you can't set it to any time sig.

Back to the bridge for me.

Cheers

Take 2 Sarge, I wanted to play it as you do so the metronome is only clicking on the down beat, this is, I find, more challenging than having the metronome click on every pick.

I also tried to minimise right hand movement.

It's not perfect and my palm muting messes up sometimes but I can practise more if it isn't worthy of a pass, is a pass 80%, 90% or 100%?

Cheers

Much better Soldier!! You slowed down a pinch and you are synched up to the click. You can use any type of click / beat that works for you. It's just there to help train your internal metronome. Eventually You'll hear the clicks in your head and you won't need the metronome.

This one has better overall control and I don't hear any double fretting. That's what I'm really looking for is a clean pass on Mission Vids. Progress Vids, can have mistakes galore, they are just for feeback. Mission Vids are ones that you are putting up for a Badge so they need to just be a clean take.

Let's Debrief!!
MEDALS OF HONOR
ALTERNATE PICKING MADNESS - Firstly, this is all about alt picking. So if the alt picking is bad it all falls apart. Your alt picking here is good! Alternate Picking is the core of these drills.
TRAVERSE IN STYLE - Secondly, I wanna see traverse. In addition to Alternate picking, this requires nearly non stop string traverse. Each time you switch strings, you risk missing the strike, or catching the pick on the string and missing a beat. No worries. Smooth as glass.

SILENT AS DEATH - Lastly, Palm muting is always critical. Any gaps in the mute and string noise raises it's ugly head. Not here!! Solidly done.

The first dozen or so are foundational bits meant to get you prepped for the more crazy bits. You have wads of experience from Quick Licks which should come in handy!!! This one is sorted YOu just.
LEVELED UP!!!!

You got it! Very clean and precise playing here.
TRAVERSE OF KINGS You may have noticed that these licks have a LOT of string traverse. This one certainly does. Non stop traverse. It's a good way to see if the picking and fretting hand are talking in in synch and your hands are well synched.

SOLID PACING
Any looping lick like these is about pacing. It can be tempting to rush or lag and not even realize it. You don't fall victim to this and you play with smooth confidence.
ALT PICKING FROM HELL Pretty much non stop alternate picking. This is a "shred lick" so it's a good one to work up speed on. I often have to tell Bootcampers to slow down a pinch. In your case, I think you have a bit more gas in the tank. I think you may be able to push a bit faster. I don't want you to play sloppy of course, but your precision is very good, I think you may have more speed in your fingers than you realize.

You've got this one sorted Soldier!
You just..

LEVELED UP!!!
