I wanted to give an update to one of the videos I posted last week to a discussion thread on the etudes. This one is alt picking 1 (plus a little extra because I was feeling frustrated tonight). I'm still working to improve my speed. Improvement seems slow but hopefully I'll be able to look back on this and see a real difference. And this past week I got so much advice from you all here it was wonderful, hopefully I won't let it go in one ear and out the other. So thank you everybody for being the awesome people you are and keep the suggestions coming. ~Kai
Haven’t posted in awhile. This is still a work in progress, I’ve been working on this for the past week. I’ve been trying to get better with my hammer on’s as well as palm muting. I’ve been doing exercises in lesson 18 and 22 and It’s definitely helping! I just wanted to share my progress with you guys ! I’m going to continue working on this and eventually try it with a backing track 😧
I might even put some actual clothes on 😂
So following the last video and my sh*t bends I decided to practice them a bit today xD I watched the lesson 43 "Introduction to bending strings" again, but I still cant hit the notes I want all the time! I guess I keep practicing :P Anyway instead of recording the same solo I tried another one that have enough bends including 1/2 and full bends.
trying to get this Etude right. What I like about strict alternate picking this is that it's really easy to accent the notes on which the beats fall if you play with a metronome. But I really have to start from the beginning again.
I last attempted the Intro to Buried Alive eagerly with a pick, but had some suggestions to try it in its finger playing style. This is a little rough, and I apologize for that. I just wanted to show some progress. Any suggestions for other finger style songs would be awesome!
