I watched the first episode of Norsemen on Netfilx.... it was okay but there's a character in the show which just reminded me of a certain ibanez playing norseman from our own GMC community wink.gif

maybe its just me but..... the viking standing behind the guy trying to shoot the arrow?

Im trying to get my practice sessions a bit more efficient. Any thoughts or advice would be great smile.gif
Ive got about 2 hours worth of time daily. Ive been trying to figure out what is the most important stuff I want to work on and as clichéd as it is....
Alt picking is still a big priority for me, then its maybe being able to play runs using hammer / pulls and legato. then I need to improve my riffing, like for playing more metal type stuff.

As for the picking - I had thought an hour on that maybe split into 30 mins of patterns to a metronome and 30 mins on 1 or 2 picking lessons.
I have no problem with the metronome stuff, I dont get bored and I actually quite enjoy the non-musical aspect, its like a form of meditation smile.gif
with that said do you think that actual patterns matter that much and what are peoples thoughts on including the old Vinnie Moore style chromatic stuff along to the metronome like - here at 2:50 - I do these quite a lot at the moment.

then I might do a similar thing with hammer / pull runs and legato for 40 mins and 20 mins riffing stuff ( 20 mins doesnt seem much though, dunno but Im probably a bit better at playing riffs than fast picking )

I'd like to delve into sweep picking but I thought its best to get my overall hand sync improved first so thats a future thing and I plan on learning more theory but I'll do that outwith this 2 hour practice.
Also, I think I take on far too many lessons. I should probably reduce those a fair bit huh.gif

any thoughts would be appreciated.

I thought this was really well done biggrin.gif
I saw the title on YT and had to click it as I do like both the Beatles and death metal...... I was not at all disappointed with the result cool.gif

The whole song should be done like this.

what do you guys think of the new Chapman Pro range, what are they comparable with at their new higher price range?
Costs are similar to premium ibby and a couple of the new signatures are in the US fender price range.

I thought the Rabea Sigs looked pretty tasty. the normal and baritone version sound pretty decent. About £1,200 price tag on those.
I was never too bothered about the old ML1 but the new ML1 Pro Modern looks killer, Id be tempted rolleyes.gif especially the orange one, I really like the finish on that.

I was thinking about tuning my SG to C standard / drop A. Would this be do-able?
I guess Id need a new or modified nut and for strings, maybe 12-56?

Not sure what stuff to look out for or potential problems with doing this, any advice would be appreciated.
