It's day 6? I did like 50 million takes, I wanted to try and piece together something nice. I need to learn to write this stuff down. I had lot's of ideas and they kept changing/evolving, forgot a lot of bends and stuff I had. I didn't pay attention to my picking hand, during this. I spent like 2 hours total on the lesson itself and working on this improve. Was feeling a bit under pressure or something. Still a good day for music nonetheless.
I know the names of the chords now. Thanks to Jak I was able to figure the main ones out. Tomorrow I'm going to write some more of the notes down. Maybe even try and make a more guitar driven version. I think it's nice song, haven't listened to the words much just the melodies. Tomorrow I'll do it again so I practice naming stuff and make tabs or something. It's sloppy, my strap was all the way down. Almost forgot the chords are: C-G#-A-E. There's maybe another one or more
Did like 5 or 6 improvisations and record the last 3. It kept getting worse so I thought to just move on. I chose this last recording cause I thought it was a bit more showing of me trying to apply what I just learned. Haven't heard it yet , but there were some out of key notes or misplaced. I tried to redo it during my playing, but was a bit slow. Had way cooler ideas before I spent like an hour or one and a half on the C major scale lesson plus some time on the lesson 22. It was good because I was able to use both scales/patterns on the jam track.

A little bit more shredding than usual. Also, I changed my strings yesterday and it kept going out of tune very badly for most of the takes so I kept redoing until it somewhat stayed in tune enough #cheatercompleter
Chords move fast in these backingtrack so i did something I don't like to do usually and that's just mindlessly shred for a bit.
Didn't realize it ended so fast, pretty weak ending. I was gong to redo it, but it's cool, tomorrow is another day. Sure is fun having something to stick to. Had a lot of cool things while practicing/warming up before recording this. Didn't record it though :'( Oh ya, I tried to add some other techniques into the solo like palm mutes.
As is probably pretty clear I lost track of where the hell I was in the second half. Also, every chord lasts 1 bar longer than Instinctly expect it to be so it's a bit of a pain to improvise over but well that's what practice is for. Now it's off to the gym to throw some weights at people out of frustration 🤪
I wanted to share this with you because I‘ve incorporated a lot of Synyster-esque economy picking ideas into this! :)
A lot of furious economy picking in this one! :) The first pattern is a great pickslanting and string skipping exercise too. Instagram: simoneichingerx
New day and a bigger challenge - This was in no way a one take wonder! I just kept over judging what I was doing in previous takes and trying again. I tried to stop myself from mindless noodling in the later half by using a Bubble trem effect on my guitar, enjoy!
This was supposed to be for the SGS Extreme Improv Challenge, but I got the backing track wrong. However I prefer this to the original improv I did, so here you go!
A very rough video of me playing some questionable licks and mixing some modes in G!
smrtdeath - she told me to kill myself (not a cover) i just found this song and thought it was cool tried to find some of the notes way easier than beast and the harlot xD the bass is loud, had the music really loud compared to my guitar
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!
So this is my first video on the school!! I decided like 40 minutes ago that I’m gonna get over my fear of posting a video on here and just do it! I was always too embarrassed that I can only play rhythm guitar but I finally figured out that it’s not a bad thing and actually quite important! So I chose a song I’m good at and did it! Enjoy!!
