???????? never heared about that... there is a button to press... tomorrow i will do a vieo to show you the new speed assignment, im not sure if im playing it right, then i show you the funktion on my laptop, i think thats much easier then explain it in english!

is it possible, that my tuner tunes wrong? because i really tuned the guitar before the video and after you wrote that i tuned it again and there wasnt much to do, because the guitar was almost in tune and i have played a time after making the video.

or maybe it only sounds out of tune because i bend the strings sometimes a little bit without purpose...


That can be caused by old strings, or the octave intonation adjustment in your guitar. The only way to see if the octave intonation adjustment in your guitar is right is with new strings.

But that sort of stuff is better checked by someone with experience, imo. You could post something in the GMC forums about it, I'm sure there's lots of people who know about that problem in here. I've been there.

Great rhythm take!! it was perfect! accents well placed and all the notes perfectly put in the correct time.

You have a great sense of rhythm so there are no excuses when playing the guitar. tongue.gif

We'll continue doing more and more challenging exercises.

thanks, i think i should sell all my guitar stuff and buy a drum set! maybe i would be a great drummer! lol




my goal was 75% speed from your GP-file, that 104 bpm. i choose that small goal because of the short time and the difficult lick!
tomorrow is my birthday so i havnt that much time, i hope i can do one more video!

Thanks for the vid! That is good! The point of the exercise was met in my opinion, to break square patterns and use many finger positions. Practice the change that happens at 0:05 by itself. Notice that you have an open string ringing on that change.

Keep the notes even the whole time. You start off very well on time and later on you start to slow down a little. Keep the tempo as you on the rhythmic exercises!

But overall I think you can go far with this type of phrasing. It's a difficult lick.

hey, here is the first solo assignment, there is a big mistake in the end, but this is my best take and i havent more time to do one, because i have to practice the new studff and the vintage rock for rec!
the guitar sounds out of tune or not? i tuned the guitar right before the take (ok, this is take nr 10 or something like that), so it is in tune but it dont sounds so. in the slide part it sounds out of tune in my ear! what are you saying? if you think so to, i will post a video in the forum and ask what to do...

its really a dark video, but my light is broken...

hey, i had a look on the new solo assignment i i read there "pre-bend". i dont know what that means? where is the difference to a normal bend?

Pre-bend means that you don't attack the string until it has been bent and then you pull it down. It happens fast at that particular part but don't think about it too much, just listen and emulate it. Notes are there written down so you can see what's going on.

About this week's solo assignment, it's very good! nice control over the bendings! I think you have gotten better during this past months. I like the continuity you achieved at 0:09. Revise the lick at 0:12, do it sliding and not with hammer-ons.

Just practice 0:26 by itself some fews times. I think you went a little too high on that bending.

The guitar sounds in tune this time. You should always do the same for all videos, and actually for every practice session and gig that you have. It's crucial.

Hi Mirko,
actually, I read most of the MTP boards. I think I will sign up for one of the next MTPs...
I think you did great, I see great improvements regarding your earlier posted videos.
Is there a chance to record the guitar on your computer and mix it with the backing track (with a software like reaper) ? This would make your sound so much better, because now I personally think the backing is a bit to loud and one can hear much of the pick noise.
Greetings
Gitarrero

Hey Mirko,

i also read your MTP board and i think gitarero is right here. Try to use a DAW like Reaper or Audacity and mix it with the backing and don't use the sound from your cam.

Here is a good video for you: http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/misc-less...rial-273641234/

I learned everything about video recording for GMC there. David Walliman explain its very good.

I like your playing in the video but with better sound it would be even better.

Hope that helps

I think your take is very good actually! the harmonic at 0:43 is amazing!! spot on! Your timing is great! your bendgins have improved a lot since earlier videos,

In general there are very few things to improve, almost none, for instance the second bend on 0:52 went a little too high.

I would suggest that you move on and start working on more challenging material because you have this one down. The more material you learn, the more you will improve.

I think the suggestions about sound quality made by Guitarrero are very valid and they are not hard to implement.

Hi Mirko,
I use this little device ( http://www.behringer.de/EN/Products/UCA222.aspx ). You can plug it into your amp and connect it to your PC via USB. I bought it in a bundle with a v-amp 3 and the energyXT software for 100€, but you can get the UCA222 for about 35€ alone.
It is easy to use, I don't want to miss it anymore!

Hi Mirko,

The first Mr. Brownstone lick sounds pretty cool! Very good job. A couple of things, at 0:16 there’s a slight timing issue, very small but let me mention it. And next, get it up to tempo, I’m pretty sure you can do it. To achieve that, don’t change your technique, use the same exact technique you are using at that slower tempo. Just do it faster.

The second lick is played very well, although the point of it is to play it as fast as possible, so set a goal for it and keep on building up speed. To me it still sounds too slow at that speed. Again, use the same technique you are using at that tempo.

I guess what I want to tell you is that you should go ahead and start taking more risks regarding speed. I think you are playing too safe which is good to start with but I think now you can challenge yourself confidently. Don’t worry about mistakes, it’s impossible not to make them in the first place but you have to go through that before mastering speed.

How did you go with the REC take?

hey, i take the "Vintage hard Rock"-video for REC that i posted before... i didnt had the time, to make a better one!

the problem at the moment is, that im close before a very important test for my master school! i wasnt in school all the class- units and thats why i have to learn pretty much because the test is in 2 month and im really bad!

of course i was playing the guitar last week, but not that much i have to do to spped up that licks!

i think next month wont get better and so please dont await big improvments from me!

Hi Mirko!

I think this month has been very productive on your side and you have improved a lot in different techniques specially in bending strings.
I’m very happy with you as a mentoree because you show interest and dedication to your assignments and completed them all.

For next month we’ll keep on working on material that would help you improve your technique, rhythm and ear even further but if you want we can lower the work load since you told me you are going to be more busy in school.

Let me know of any special technique you feel that you need to work on or maybe an style of a particular band/guitarist.

Here’s the link to your January’s REC take:

Hey, we can work on the same stuff like the last two month! im sure i can improve my bending technique and my speed to a higher level and i want to do that before i start working on other stuff!

i would be glad if i can have short assignments, i will not have much time the next weeks but i want to practice speed! last week the problem was: i need so much time to learn the riffs, that the week was over before i had time to speed it up!
with short riffs i can train more to get them really fast!
