Hi! a solo from my band!, We are from México Solo de la canción Orgullo del disco Vives Mueres de Brizz Equipo utilizado: Schecter C-6 FR Pro Line 6 Pod HD500X Garage Band Gopro Hero 4
It’s been 5 days since I posted an update (not counting my plea for help lol) I can see some improvement and that’s super exciting. Still a long ways to go, but want to share my progress with you all!
I went over the notes last night and just now again a few times. These books are very confusing, I'm not sure if I'm playing the right parts. I might have missed a whole line as well. There's no rhythm or anything in my playing and I don't have the melody in my head right now. That's probably one of the reasons it's not going so great. I can almost play the whole song on memory at full speed just missing a few parts and this solo. Do I need the Floyd Rose or can I use the regular one too? I'm sure I can play this one eventually except maybe the last 2 notes. Maybe in a week or 2 it will be better

Progress!! Played at 137 bpm, so full speed but there's definitely work to be done to make it smoother and more consistent. Few notes because I forgot to call them out in the video: 1. Need to work on holding the notes for a little longer, they're quite short and abrupt, which sounds awful. 2. The stretches are giving my hand a pretty bad strain, so I can't play it for too long consistently, so more practice needed. 3. Timing is still slightly off, and one small mess-up throws me off entirely. 4. Getting used to switching from lead to rhythm bits needs work. There's probably stuff I missed, but these are the main bits. Enjoy!
@[4668:@Alicia Willis] I thought it might help someone else as well. Fingerings/Picking Motions are Debatable. Slow it down 0.5 or maybe less, 1.5 is roughly normal speed. Some parts I added vibrato where it wasn't in the book. Hear the song I found a crucial note I was missing going over it again. The Pinch Harmonic + Vibrato at the end is an aggressive one, just recently noticed that. I learned it with the book, it took me a long time to understand it. ( Still learning ) I've been reflecting this solo for over 10 years.
This is me practicing just the arpeggio's for the CAGED system from the lessons! I'm really digging this kind of practicing for myself. Playing things slower has me antsy, but I'm retaining this info better all while learning the fretboard more. Major and Pentatonic scales are feeling close to good, so I'm aiming to be able to play those together later in the week!
Learned 2 ways now to do the scale and my alternate picking feels much more natural, had to take a couple days off wrists started hurting haha.
It’s been a minute since I’ve posted a help video in true awkward Alicia Style, but I’m back with an even better mom bun and more eye bags ! 🤣 Seriously though, I’ve been playing a little less than a year so this solo is teaching me a plethora of techniques and I’m working on a bunch.Hector has been fucking amazing (but I don’t want to aggravate him to death) there’s one spot where I’m not sure if it’s just more practice needed or if you guys might have some secret wisdom to share ! Let me know Fam! ❤️ Edit: so in the video I say 2 notes after the bend but it’s really 3 notes lol. I get nervous and screw up what I’m trying to say. 😬
Redo of a cover of the intro to The Stage by Avenged Sevenfold. Hope y'all enjoy! This is pretty difficult to nail down but once you have it, it's super fun ...
Here is a little part of one of my new song. It will be soon available. Subscribe to my channel to watch the full project soon. Don't hesitate to share it wi...
Never thought I would play this song at 100% speed but here I go. Endurance fails me though and towards minute 2 or 2:30 I lose the timing and try to catch up with the song. My challenge now is to be able to release some tension from my arms to be able to play the full rhythm clean
Hi guys! I’m back with a full cover of Zacky’s part for Hail to the King! Dedicated to our Mama Cat, Jak. Thank you for always being my number one fan and supporter since day one! ♥ I hope this does you proud!
For me the biggest and best “prize” in coming in 2nd on the Rockstar Student award is the lessons with the all mighty Hector Trejo to learn my favorite Avenged solo. I’ve only seriously been playing less than a year and this is so different from anything I’ve attempted before so I was a bit weary to post my journey, but seeing CJ’s updates has giving me the courage I needed ! So I wanted to share with you guys as I work on this. Today was my second lesson with Hector. There are so many techniques and things I’ve never done, and while it’s honestly awful now, I know what I need to work on and how to get there and at the end of the day I feel like this is going to be a major learning moment for me ! No matter how long it takes, I’m determined to get it, get it right, and make the school and Mr. Trejo proud ! Just because you’re a beginner doesn’t mean you can’t aim big ! Practice until your fingers bleed ! Lol. Okay maybe not that much, but you get the jist 🤣
