Hey GMC !!
i just wanted to share something really great that happened to me in my little 2months in GMC
I used to just train 30minutes a day and hardly even enjoy them !
but now i train for 4 hours to 5 hours a day with enjoying every second of them !
and that resulted in me getting from a lame 120Bpm to a Whopping 245Bpm ! (i think its whopping tongue.gif)
I jumped from intermediate lessons to them great extremely advanced lessons !!
The purpose of this thread is to show and inspire everyone is that:
you don't need to be talented or a born genius in guitar.
You just need the time,dedication and the enjoyment of playing guitar !
you dont need to play 4 hours a day like me sometimes 1 hour of pure practise is better then 5 hours of messing around biggrin.gif
I just wanted to share my progress and just give a little message of inspiration biggrin.gif
I hope everyone will become the future Kirk Hammet or the future Steve Vai ! or even better tongue.gif
just put your heart into it and you will make other guitarists go to shame haha !
Thanks everyone for your time reading my thread !!
Keep it metal and take care !!! laugh.gif

WOW man - congratulations! smile.gif
This really shows how much progress you can make in a short amount of time if you put your mind into it and have focused practice.
Even 30 minutes a day is more then enough to make excellent progress if you focus on the right exercises/lessons.

Do you have some kind of practice plan that you followed Moris? How does your practice session look like?
I'm sure others would love hear about it smile.gif

Hey Bogdan !
Thanks alot for your feedback !
and yes your right it all has to do with the right exercises and lessons !

Well Bogdan not really hahaha !
but i do have some great advice !"Always play what you cant play !"
that means always play songs that are a little above your level ! smile.gif
because you will always get to that level with some hard practise and when you get to that level aim for more !
nothing is impossible so you don't have a limit to your progress there's always this song that you cant play haha xD
So thats mostly my practise agenda haha but something that also helps is bookmark all the lessons you learned
and recap on them every now and then smile.gif i recap on them everyday !
thats another way to track you progress tongue.gif because if your getting better the lessons you bookmarked are gonna become easier and cleaner to play so thats a definate sign of progress !!

Moris,


Yes - very good advice. This is one of most common mistakes.
Always challenge yourself and don't practice things you already mastered. We all incline to practice things we are comfortable with as it makes us feel good but on the other hand that slows down the progress.

One should always challenge himself but when it comes to metronome and exercises there is one "rule" : don't go to a faster tempo until you can comfortably (and clean) play on the current one. You can challenge yourself from time to time of course but try to master every tempo before pushing further - otherwise you could end up practicing "sloppy" playing.

I agree bib...one practice routine I have been working on I finally played at 160 bpm which for me is great!

Awesome job on your practice! GMC definitely makes it more productive and fun!

This is probably the best advice, now submitting a rec take is very easy, it's on the same page as the lesson, so just go for it!

Well done.

I agree
"you don't need to be talented or a born genius in guitar.
You just need the time,dedication and the enjoyment of playing guitar !

Now do a rec of a lesson it is also good learning tool.

Cheers
