Alright so here is my progress on this solo till now (my fever is finally gone :))). I feel really saturated as I've been doing this for hours now and can't really tell the difference in tempo anymore (sorry xD) I'm sure it's off at places, (it was okay a few hours ago, should've recorded then). As of now, I 'sorta know' the notes and am playing at 115BPM (the song is 138). Let me know what you think!
I’ve gotten to where I don’t like to post a lot due to my social anxiety, but my wife @[4668:@Alicia Willis] insisted, so here is my rough attempt at the Crazy Train solo.
day 1 of learning this solo, will keep posting the progress =) they are both first takes and def have mistakes, criticism is welcome! (hi pls help) Also, I use my phone as a metronome but since I was recording with that, it isn't in the vid xD

I was so confused by what @firsty lasty said to another student but I asked Bill for help and he clarified it for me and showed me what it means. This was so fucking cool! Let me know if I messed anything up!
Yes that bend in the intro is a bit sharp. Possibly there are more, tell me when you find them, I'd like to know 😅
This is my progress so far with the new NorthTale song :) I present it to Bill on Saturday and I decided to do it on my own to see if I could learn some things by ear with with what all he has taught me. I know the key signature, the chords and the scales being used (thanks Andrei!) . As always feedback is much appreciated! I also chose this song because there is a lot of arpeggio work, down strokes and bends throughout and those are all the things he wants me to work on.
Apologies if I sound really tired at the start XD So, the audio isn't the greatest because at parts my phone is louder than my guitar, and you can't see my hand for the last part of the intro, but here's improvement! While warming up today, I got really frustrated because I started picking up on and realising all my bad habits and how bad they really sound (Letting notes ring, poor muting, picking wrong, wrong notes, poor timing etc) but getting the ending of the intro right did bring me back up a bit, so there's that. Hoping to try and get this up to speed and try to sort my timing out, it's really kicking my backside!
Hey guys! So I've been practicing every single day for at least an hour and a half, and it feels great to be consistent. I looked at economy picking a couple of times throughout the past year, but always got frustrated and gave up. Well not this time! I've decided that if I'm ever going to get anywhere, I'll have to put in the work on my weaknesses. I started this economy picking exercise a week ago, around 70 bpm. Today, I got up to 135-140. Obviously it isn't perfectly clean, but I'm pushing the limit so I'll take being close. Tomorrow I'll try to get this tempo clean, and push it a little farther once again. Any tips on how to eco pick better, or anything you see wrong in this vid is appreciated.
Wanted to do some rhythm work since I've done lots of solo stuff, and ended up here. Wanted to give myself a bit of a challenge and man did I get one! Here's my first attempt at the intro for Heretic! It's messy particularly at the end of the intro where I can't quite place the notes, but not bad for a first go, and I know I will get it with a bit more work!! Also, I really need to get better with using the metronome, I keep going too fast! It's a good song to work on though, great with the 3-7 and 1-5 stretches, as well as working on picking as it's a weird one! Any tips appreciated! Cheers Also - that last bit of constant (1-2-3-4-nope... 1-2-3-4-nope...) I apologise you had to watch the same thing like, 6 times XD
Sons of night intro and verse riff
Decided to try something other then a7x for once so i decided to learn the rhythm intro and verse riff to sons of night by bvb but i was nervous as hell to post it😶
Okay, so I went rummaging though some old recordings, and found two of these song/solo ideas I'd completely forgotten about! So here I am, showing them off for the first time! They're crap attempts, I need to write them down and work on them properly, but here they are. Would love to know what you all think, and whether I should keep developing them and maybe even make something with them! Could be my little improvement project! Cheers
This is from a rough practice session. Spent about an hour doing it over and over- this is one of the better takes. At the end I was about to go back, but I felt called to noodle around a bit first. I very obviously hit a few wrong notes, but it is what it is 😎. I'll post other stuff in the coming days and then come back to this song in about a week or so (I'll be working on it every day). I'll be sure to stay in tempo next time, too lol. This is to keep a tangible track of how my playing real songs improves. Thanks for watching.
