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! You will then proceed to Lesson #2 and so forth. Here is the link to the entire 400 plus Lesson Library. https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/wiki/inde...rtal:Techniques

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

Practice!

Heads Up!!! It's the FIRST MISSION From the G Man!!! Great to see you swinging the club!!!!! A great first effort here. Solid tone and technique. These first few missions are really just to get you used to recording yourself and getting your production process smoothed out. Things don't get to crazy til you get past the first few. You should have zero problem with these and you can go ahead and do more than one at a time if you like as I think you are more than ready to be further up the food chain on these. Let's Debrief!!

MEDALS OF HONOR

*LEFT HAND KILLING IT: Good Fretting, clean notes.

*RIGHT HAND KILLING IT: Good palm mute, no string noise, good strikes

*BOTH HANDS KILLING IT: Right/Left Synch is spot on!!

In other words you just KRUSHED it and ..


LEVELED UP!!!!

Welcome to the fight Soldier!! Here is your first Mission Badge!!

CONGRATS SOLDIER!!!! yet again, you KILLED IT!!!!! Let's debrief...

Very nicely done soldier. This is exactly what I was looking for Stick a fork in it, it's done! You showed very solid technique here despite not using much gain. Sometimes folks will go a bit heavy on gain to hide bits and smooth out the rough patches. An old salt like me can always hear the wonky bit though Your timing is very good throughout. I think you are more than ready for what's next. Very soon, I'm going to start asking for "MULTIPICKING" which is picking each note in a given drill twice or more, instead of once. But we will get there in a bit. For now.....


MEDALS OF HONOR

1.)Solid Hand Synch
2.)Tight right hand control
3.)good planted palm mute


Congrats Soldier, you just ...

LEVELED UP!!!

You can get some advance practice on MULTI PICKING by going back through Mission 1 through 3 and just pick each note twice in a given pattern, then try to pick each note 3 times, then try to pick each note 4 times.

Very good idea! I'll try to incorporate it while working on our next lessons!
Also thanks for your feedback Sarge!
It is true that I am more nervous when I am recording...I''l try to be more relaxed in general...
And of course I intend and hope to do a lot of RECs as you suggested!! smile.gif

You are kicking butt and taking names Soldier!! Keep it up! The more you play on camera, the easier it will get. It's natural to tense up a bit when the camera is rolling just takes some time and getting used to it. After a while, it will be no different than when you are not being recorded. Of course, this assumes that you will record yourself a LOT which is something I suggest. I'd say record practice sessions every time you practice. Even just a a small chunk of the session. Watch the playback and look for things to improve on. Folks that stay stiff when video is rolling usually just don't spend enough time recording and watchingthe playback. So get on it Soldier! smile.gif Add some Multi Picking in there as well so you can see/hear whatt thats sounds like on playback and BAM you are on your way to being a MONSTER player!

Thanks for the guidance Sarge!
Very true about recording stiffness...I try to record often, so I think I wil lessen my anxiety over time...
Furthermore, I believe that an extra factor is that I was away from guitar playing for too long but anyway I try to think as positively as I can now! smile.gif

Well Fought Soldier!! This is what I like to see. Aggressive, steady, plowing through, kicking ass and taking names. You are more than capable of doing multiple lessons. Keep this up and you'll be knocking on the top spot in no time!!! These are all done well. Let's debrief!!!!

MEDALS OF HONOR



*PICKING: Solid picking technique on all of these. Your Alt Picking is coming along nicely!!!!

*MUTING: Very good job muting. IT's very easy to slack off on ones muting while concentrating on fretting and picking. EVERY SINGLE ONE of these missions is designed to force you to focus on your muting, no matter what else is going on and you have!! Nice!

*LEAP FROGGING: Doing multiple lessons at once is a great way to make much faster progress. I don't often have students that can get through many lessons at once and get a level of mastery of each. You manage it quite well. I say keep going, you can handle it!

In other words, you just killed it and ...

LEVELED UP!!!

Keep it up! I'll check out your rec!
