Hi,

I don’t know if any of you really remember me 😅 It definitely has been a while, 3 years to be exact. I’ve been playing but not very often as life got in the way. I started singing, usually in my car while I’m driving to work because no one can hear me then 😂

Because of the singing I was finally able to learn gunslinger and danger line solos by ear in a martter of hours! I didn’t even have the ability to play those solos couple months ago. So stoked the progress!

Now I’m stuck with the fast part of hail to the king solo. I somewhat got it but not quite there. I feel like there’s maybe something wrong with my technique. ..So I decided to ask for help and any tips from you!

Ps. This forum has changed a lot! So I apologize if I’m doing something wrong here. I feel like I don’t know how to use this forum 😅

Anyways. Here’s the link to my recording:

    Hey! Glad you're back. And indeed the forums have changed quite a lot and is still in the work. Just a heads up that a big concentration of the community will now be on the Avenged discord: https://discord.com/channels/864965089969569812/865003768785272852

    These forums will stay up for the time being and focus mostly on lesson related topics!

    I totally feel that....I'm just now restarting after a year off from a hand injury and then no motivation to play for the following two years. Hoping to relearn with better technique and precision this time,

    Hail to the king it looks like you are trying to play it faster than you are able to at this point, creating sloppy frustrating playing. Try slowing it down and getting it 100% accurate and perfect before then slowly increasing the speed (I'm working on the same part of the solo and am probably close to 80 or 90% of the way there with pretty good accuracy, slowly but surely).

    The key is consistent practice, it will all come together!

    It's great to hear that you've been playing guitar and making progress with your skills! Learning solos by ear is a fantastic accomplishment, and it's always exciting to see progress in your playing.
