Jammed to this song this morning and forgot how fun it was to play! Been working on alternate picking as well as my legato which are both crucial to play a solo by Randy Rhoads! Dont worry @[11:@Brian Haner Sr.] my angels cover is coming😂

I've been learning so much on that website.. I got so much better. And I'll keep practicing for a long time. Thanks to Synister Gates and to his dad, you guys helped me so much.
Just worked a little with the progression I created last time and tried to make something out of it. I am also finally through with the CAGED lessons! Taking them seriously helped me tons to get somewhere as a musician.
As I said I wanted to show my progress. It’s been two days since my last post and this is where I am now. The bend is better I think, and I also changed around the way I finger certain things to be able to get to the notes in the correct timing. Also worked on the tone. I really like this sound and tone now for this particular solo.
This is probably one of the hardest things I've attempted. Not because it's technically hard but playing it from memory and remembering all the notes is difficult. It isn't perfect but neither where any of my other takes(I always messed up in different spots)
Here is a fun little section from my upcoming song Eris! I tried to keep voice leading in mind by using these arpeggios shapes, so even though some of these shapes are quite difficult to keep clean, It adds a cool effect by keeping all the arpeggios in roughly the same region of the fretboard!

Hey all new member here. I stumbled across this school whole searching for finger picking and sweep picking techniques. Been playing self taught for a few years (took about a year of lessons in grade school but then didn’t play seriously). Love A7x and just got my custom S last week. Started finger picking last week also and this is my progress with the buried alive intro. At first I couldn’t figure it out at all but I’m getting there. If anyone has good fingerpicking practice things/songs they could suggest I’d take all advice. Next I’m gonna try to learn is broken by seether.
I figured I’d make these a series of videos showing my progress.
I learned the whole solo.
Now it’s time to finesse it lol.
My string muting sucks.
I do NOT like this tone, but was trying to combat the awful shrill string buzz from my high E until I can get it fixed.
Oh, and I need to certain parts up to speed.
Maybe in a week or two It’ll actually sound pretty 😂
But I’m happy with the progress I’ve made. I’ve never learned an entire solo before....hell, I don’t even really do solos. So this was fun and different from the normal rhythm stuff I learn.
So I did another loop cover! This time a song from one of my favourite bands, Foals. I feel like my solo improv would sound better with a couple fast runs here and there, need to build up speed with my scales 😂 Also been trying to play more intervallic lately instead of just up and down scales, not sure if I’m succeeding 😂
