> IS THAT YOUR MAMA?

Nope didn't think so either. We all know parents don't get this.

I can show you how to be the virtuoso your folks could only dream about, but I first need your help:

* Pm me and I will show you where to start. I am online every day and I will help you out directly!

* Join my mentoring program. I will customize your learning experience in a way you haven't experienced before. We will have regular contact so that you can remain inspired every day and eventually reach a new level.

* Join my next video chat! GMC startpage holds a video chat schedule. We always cover a lot of ground and have fun. Remember that you don't need any previous knowledge, and you can be passive in the chat.

* Jam with me - you will find active collabs here.

* Post a topic on this board, guitar related or not - doesn't matter! You will find that chatting with instructors boosts your motivation to practice.

* You haven't missed my latest video lessons, have you?

* Oh and did you know that to become a killer guitarist you just need to focus on one thing? Everything
else is secondary. Pm me and I will explain.

I see, well, you also need to be patient, if that is the situation smile.gif In the mean time, how about you and I discuss some theory? You can always practice even if you don't have a guitar at hand smile.gif

What say you?


I say yes sure. BUT, my fingers are.. literally, crying, moving, to get a guitar in hand.... Haven't touched one in 20 days. sad.gif I want a guitar !!!! My fingers want to hold one.....

Have you thought about borrowing one? Maybe a friend can help out smile.gif What do you think?

Otherwise, you will have to deal with your guitar and maybe try to look at the good part - you will build an awesome stamina for your left hand for instance wink.gif I know it's hard to think that way, but I am trying to help you out with coping with the situation until you get a new axe wink.gif

I can borrow a crappy acoustic when I go back to Russia. tongue.gif That's all. And, I will have to deal with my guitar. And, yes, I noticed. I touched a guitar after 30 days today. Played many. A variety. I played Jacksons, Randy Rhoads model, and a Kelly. Then, I tried a few Les Pauls, Epiphone LP Standard, and a Gibson Future Les Paul, or whatever it was. And, also the PRS Tremonti SE. And, a 7-string PRS Custom 24 SE, and a Fender Strat. I might have missed out a few more. Finally found a few good guitar shops in Delhi, with my childhood friends smile.gif smile.gif)))) Though they're not into metal or guitar at all, they were really encouraging.
Now, about the playing experience. I played MUCH MUCH MUCH better on those guitars, than my current guitar. The speed, better precision. Hitting notes was easier. On each and every darned guitar. It felt amazing. Boosted my confidence a lot. I felt, with the right amount of correct practice, your help, I can be a pro in 4 years =) Thanks so much for supporting me the whole time big brother biggrin.gif I loved most of them. Jacksons were my favorite, because of the neck, and, a little more mid-ness in tone. The Jackson Kelly had amazing tone because of the Duncan pickups. I guess the best combination of woods and pickups. Though the fingerboard would be ebony on the Jackson I buy, the one I tried today had Rosewood. Then, on second position, Les Paul. Great Tone =) Classic. Loved it. Wish the neck could be a bit thinner. But, I could still play on it fine. I liked the PRS Tremonti too. Though would have loved to spend more time with it. And, I wasn't a fan of the 7 String PRS. Lacked the bottom end. Maybe the amp's fault. It felt great today. Felt better about my playing when they said that I was good. And, after I could play just fine even after not touching a guitar for a month biggrin.gif

Sounds like a VERY EXTENSIVE experience, Yash! biggrin.gif

Well, now I very well know the feeling of visiting a music instruments shop and tinkering around with all the nice axes and amps and then .. 'SNAP' - reality check smile.gif No money to get what I want...

You need to be patient and see how you can get a guitar that could fit a realistic budget. I know it's tough because you are relying on your parents for now, so maybe having a serious talk with them in which you will approach the matter in a mature manner, will convince them about the fact that they need to help you in order to contribute to your cause.

Some parents are easier than others, but I think once they will understand you want to finish your studies and in the mean time, practice an instrument to fulfill your spiritual needs and feed your soul, maybe they will re-consider their attitude smile.gif give it a try, deal?

We already have like, 1200 EUR aside for me. But, I want more. I am greedy. tongue.gif I showed mom a nice Jackson, so she was like, wait another year and we'll save up more for a better guitar if you want. But, we don't know if we're gonna have more next year, or if it will stay the same smile.gif Plus, they've said no to buying it online. So, finding the guitar is the toughest thing right now.

Mate... you have 1200 EUR and you don't have a guitar smile.gif I would go get one ASAP. Waiting on another year... that's not a good option at all if you ask me. Instead of having a great guitar, you are growing your frustration ... plus... who knows what will happen next year? Life is filled with unexpected things Yash smile.gif Take what's being offered and work with it smile.gif

In that sum... sweet Lord you could get an AWSOME axe, but you also need an amp and maybe a few pedals - let me know what you think smile.gif
