> 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.

Hey guys!

Are you ready for this Thursday's topic? Since I figured out that many of you would like to hone their improvisation skills, I am going to dedicate this video chat session to IMPROVISING - Where do we start from, in order to work our way up in learning how to easily express ourselves with the aid of our instrument - the almighty guitar! smile.gif

Let's have a blast!! biggrin.gif

Here's the Hybrid picking variations we discussed about smile.gif

enjoy mates and don't forget

- use the pick on the B string and your middle finger on the high e string wink.gif
- slow tempo first, makes your practice perfect
- don't let the notes ring too much otherwise they'll become muddy smile.gif try to be clean and a little percussive wink.gif

Hi GMC!

Here's the Dorian backing track from Thursday's video chat session smile.gif have fun with it, I'll post some licks a little later on! In the mean time, have a go with my new lesson - 'Common Notes' it is a good reference for your lick building in the Dorian and Blues modes and also for targeting certain desired notes.

I'll provide drum tracks as well so you can go crazy over them tongue.gif so what else can I say: See you guys on Thursday - same time same place! wink.gif

My friends! This Thursday I'm planning on talking about how you can nicely end a groove by working with your guitar over drum fills. Being able to play nice and tight with the drum track is a very important trait! Can't wait to see you guys and share the ideas I'm having smile.gif We'll learn how to divide bars and build phrases using these rhythm elements!

Who's with me? biggrin.gif

smile.gif this Thursday - soloing is on the menu, but garnished with chords biggrin.gif

We'll discuss a little about how to implement chord structures in your solos, that will provide a very nice flavor and consistency wink.gif

Hope to see as many as you guys over, this Thursday at 8 Pm London time, as usual biggrin.gif

Here are the tracks from last Tursday - experiment with them remembering what we discussed:

- phrase using the drum elements: rhythmically and in respect to the drum element pitch (high pitched notes for high pitched drum elements and the same for the low ones)
- I have provided a slow tempo version (95 Bpm) and a faster one (120 Bpm)

Have fun and if there are any questions, shoot out smile.gif I'd love to help you out wink.gif

Hey guys!

What do you say if this Thursday we should discuss a little about re-orchestrating songs? I like the idea of transforming a song in a totally different thing - not only because you get to learn that song but also because you get to exercise your compositional and orchestrating skills, which I think that are very important smile.gif I have prepared something nice for you (it's a surprise) but for now, I can tell you that it has interesting chords, hybrid picking and a little country solo at the end tongue.gif

...so WHO'S with me??? biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif


damn i hate when i missed your lessons and it was a month ago sad.gif... i having really hard times about this topic can we return in the future video chats to this topic? (im really starting to think clear my thursday night smile.gif)
