I think you're doing well, but should slow things down for now




here's without any backing track
thanks a lot for checking it out! Yes ill slow down now haha

hey thanks a lot bro
here's a video i did without the backing track ()
Youre probably right, i didnt use a tuner :P

There are three (or four, depending on how you approach it) problems with your playing that I spotted mainly:

1 - Your bends and vibrato are weak. These are related and usually come from the same problem: you're not listening to your own playing carefully enough. Your bends aren't quite in tune and your vibrato is pretty weak overall so spend some time listening to yourself play and pay attention to these things.

2 - You're generally lacking some clarity; there's quite a few dead notes in there when you're picking things at all quickly. Legato tends to be better but you're generally lacking a little synchronisation between your hands.

3 - Your sweeping is uneven, rhythmically. The top notes in particular are much longer than the rest of what you're doing and it's really evident on the repeated sweeping idea you played in that video. You need to make sure that every note is even on those kinds of ideas and that you can really control it, because right now it's obvious that your actual sweeping is much faster than you can really play.


Edit: You only need to post your video once.

This is just a little clip of me doing one measure of an arrangement of flight of the bumblee, I'm trying to break the 100bpm threshold, I'm not used to playing at this speed, and I've been doing the practice slow and build up thing, but I wan't to see what you guys notice that needs to be corrected to help me speed up. I start around 80ish, and after a few loops increase by 3bpm(it took me a few minutes to bring up the metronome the first time), I then go up by 3pm every couple of loops to try and show where it is breaking down as I speed up from this point. I'm just not used to this style, and I don't really know what I am looking for...

Thanks
