Week 27. Getting Back To Work

Hey guitar chefs!

It’s good to finally play some guitar after the vacation and getting sick for a few days. Apparently, I decided to play almost each and every solo I know at that point πŸ˜€

Bending and Glissando Solos were like the warm-up. I was wondering if something has settled in my brain since last time I’ve played them. The bends feel really easier and convenient now, and I (hopefully) look more relaxed while playing those solos. There are some flat/sharp bends still though.

Module 28 Solo sound less cooler that the previous two IMO, but it was still fun to learn and play. The original tempo will be quite crazy, so for now I just remembered the notes and played the solo at 80 bpm.

On the other hand, The Kids Aren’t Alright by The Offspring solo is coming together quite nicely. I haven’s spent too much time on it and still managed to play it at 180 bpm in comparison with 160 bpm I played it at two weeks ago.

Crowd Chant by Joe Satriani needs a lot more work, but I managed to finally settle down where and how everything is being played. So now all I need for this first part is practice πŸ™‚

The last song is Count To Three by The Chalkeaters. It’s a comedy song about Gabe Newell not being able to count to three regarding the games VALVe made. If you’re familiar with this meme as well as the games like Half-Life, Portal, Dota 2, Left4Dead I definitely recommend to check out this song. I can’t stop listening to it since I started a few days ago. I left a link in the video description.

The goals for this week were:

  • [Done] Clean up The Kids Aren’t Alright Solo
  • [Done] Module 28 Solo with the metronome
  • [Done] Have fun snowboarding πŸ™‚

My goals for the next week:

  • Module 28 Solo at 100 bpm
  • The Kids Aren’t Alright solo at 200 bpm
  • Learn the next part of Crowd Chant
  • Learn the next part of Count To Three
