Here's the latest on Joe's lesson. The first is the small lead section. I think the bend is still a bit pitchy but look at the right hand, going both way's! Hell yeah! laugh.gif





And here is the rhythm section...Seems to be a bit better.. smile.gif





And now I'm off to strumming.....

Looks good bro! I will wait on comments till you upload your last take of Mirus's lesson. That way everything for week one is together.

Strum away!

You'll wear them out and lose their attention." —Tom Principato

What's up Jeff,

I have here and all it's glory, a take on the Strumming and Arpeggio's lesson. I went through about 20 takes @ 50bpm and chose to give you the worst one so you can see where I'm really at with it which is nowhere... laugh.gif I promise that by the end of this 4 week period, I will have this lesson at 100bpm.. smile.gif

Oh and forgive me for the bit at the end, I forgot to trim that off.. tongue.gif I warn you, it is not pretty and this should be the first lesson completed by a beginner...Mandatory GMC Regulations! laugh.gif

Sorry for the delay Steve. It’s has been a crazy weekend and my son and I are sharing a bad cold together.

Joe’s Lesson:
You did a great job with this and it’s very cool to see that right hand moving. cool.gif tongue.gif You looked very relaxed. Your left hand looks more comfortable also and you used your 2nd finger to hit the ‘G’ note. Well done man! smile.gif We will fix the bending stuff in solo soon with a different lesson.

Muris Lesson:
It still needs work but I don’t think it is as bad as you think. A week ago was the 1st time you have played these types of chords. Keep working on it. Every week I want you to post your progress with this. I will find you a lesson with full bar chords and that should help you with the dreaded ‘F’ chord problem.

Thanks for your hard work this 1st week. You have made some great progress and I hope you feel the same.

I will post back later with you next assignment. "As I blow my nose."

You know I will and thank you for helping me. smile.gif All we can do is get better as long as we practice! cool.gif

Ok here is the rhythm lesson I would like you to work on for this week.
http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/in-the...-black-sabbath/

Once you look at it you will understand why I picked it. It's all full barre chords and moving that shape around. This should help you nail the 'F' in the other lesson.

What do you think?

Yes, Yes and oh, did I say yes... tongue.gif Seriously, I want to still keep working hard on the Arpeggio lesson as well, so with the two combined, I think it will take up most of the time that I do have. I also don't want to try and focus on too much at one time and only learn part's of each if that makes since.

What's your thought's, should I push harder?

laugh.gif I thought you may have enough to work on. Just thought I would ask. I was trying to get a feel for how challenging this weeks lesson was going to be for you.

It makes perfect since and I agree smile.gif As long as you have enough work and your posting weekly progress I don't think you need to be concerned with pushing yourself harder. If I felt you weren't putting in an honest effort I would let you know. wink.gif

Let me know if you have questions or get stuck on something.

Hey Jeff,

Here's a little teaser of Marcus' lesson. Some timing issues to iron out and before you bark at me, I'm working on the right hand... tongue.gif smile.gif





EDIT while playing, On the far right bottom of the player, hit the ^ button and select HQ

tongue.gif laugh.gif I love the pants you have on!! smile.gif You get extra credit for that man! cool.gif

Looks like your having fun with this and your Agile (Les Paul copy) looks great bro!

Sounds really good so far but please, I really want you to focus on your left hand with this lesson. I have to give you good advise right smile.gif

Play the FULL bar chords as he shows you please. He uses the 1st, 3rd and 4th finger (pinky) for some of the chords and this is really important bro. Also you need to relax your thumb and allow your 1st finger to lay flat across the neck on the bar chords. Get your elbow off your left leg and sit up straight. That will help. biggrin.gif

What you uploaded sounds almost like the lesson and I am very honored to be your friend and mentor. Thanks man this made my day.

Cheerio

Just for the record...The pants are flannel lounge pants and not some 80's spandex like they look... laugh.gif

I will work on your comments Jeff. I'm still a bit shaky with the lesson so I hope have it tightened up by the weekend. Just wanted to let you know that I'm working. smile.gif

These Pauls are a tone of weight, hence the strap and my posture. So use to the weight of the Jackson that I feel like I'm holding 2 guitars... laugh.gif

Thanks man. I'll be a bit more confident with it as I play it more. Still got figure a part out. If you notice, right where I stop, he goes into a small solo and the rhythm continues. Marcus did not include those guitars in his backing. I want to try and figure that out as well.

Sorry about that Steve. huh.gif I had no idea that was missing from the backing. As you know I don't have access to any of that at this time. sad.gif I appreciate you wanting to put in the extra effort to figure it out. If you need help just ask and I'll figure it out and help. If your going to do all of this maybe we should have 2 seperate uploads for this lesson. One with you recording yourself playing just all the rhythm then another with you just playing the solo over your own backing rhytm track. I'm sure Marcus would send you the backing track so you could mix everything good. What do you think? We could count this a week 2 and 3 combined if you get it all done. Maybe you could have the next week off and do whatever you want. We can work something out. smile.gif

Yeah man, I'd actually like to try and complete this whole lesson. smile.gif I will PM Marcus although I'm sure he is quite busy with BG. If he gives me the ok, I think I can make it happen.. smile.gif May need a few extra days though.. tongue.gif
