> 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.

At the last minute...(perhaps too late) is some vid to go with my audio. Batteries dies, so it was the only take I could get. For some reason, the camera gives me an error and plays "blank" video on quicktime, but then it shows up on youtube!

I hope the video file works for you! Getting a new camera, or webcam to fix this.

Hey mate, thanks for the vid - I tried to play it but I can't see it - if it works well in Vegas it will stay in the collab! wink.gif

Yeah, it's the dumbest "error" with that camera! It used to work fine, but since the camera is old....perhaps the updates to the video player (try using Quicktime to view the vid! Windows Media Player won't view it ever, quicktime used to work/sometimes works for me) updates are no longer compatible with that camera's old format. Either way, it's an annoying new "glitch" I'm dealing with, and has basically rendered that old camera as useless.

Time for a new camera!

Oh well.....that flannel wasn't very "grunge" anyway! tongue.gif

Thanks for trying to get me in on this one Cosmin! Back to practicing the Vivaldi Arpeggios today! biggrin.gif I'm getting quite close to full-speed now! i'll post a vid of my progress soon.

What is the error? The video format?
I changed my video on my mac to .avi, just by removing "m4v" and typing in "avi" at the end

It's such an annoying, and WEIRD error! I don't even understand how it shows no video on my computer, but it WILL when I upload it to youtube!! Of course, that doesn't help for this collab, since you can't add/edit youtube videos..... ick. Gonna try and get a new camera today, actually. Sorry Cosmin....I tried! Even rocked a non-grunge flannel in the vid!!

At least GMC is forgiving of my failures! dry.gif

Hey Todd, looking to buy a pair myself smile.gif so, you're saying these are the best deal, huh?


I personally love these headphones. I"m sure you can find folks who prefer other sets, even folks that can't stand these. But honestly having tried pair, after pair, these are really hard to beat in the price range. But if possible, give them a listen before buying along with some other pairs. I kept seeing these cans in various studios, facilities etc. So I finally got a pair and now I get it. You can get nice cans from AKG for more money, but in this price range, I have yet to find anything I like better. Here is the link to info on the AKG site.

And here it is tongue.gif

the moment we've all been waiting for!



now, I'd like to thank all of you guys who participated and invite you to my next collab -> Lydian Spring Love Song Video Collab

In the order of appearance on the screen:

-> Rammikin - mate, I chose your take for starting the vid because you were the only one who started before the backing track biggrin.gif which is a very nice thing to do - diversity is awesome every time. I would recommend a bit more work on the vibrato making it a little wider wink.gif I also like the way you developed a theme in order to open the heavy part of the backing track!

-> Gitarrero - octaves are always a sure way to make things work wink.gif just pay attention not to slip off to often biggrin.gif

-> Todd - has left his nice mark on this collab - thank you Todd!

-> ElHombre - hello there mr MetalShred tongue.gif i like your take as it's sprinkled with all sorts of nifty techniques and phrases - the only thing which I think can be improved would be the fluidity between them, in lesser words, the phrases would sound better if you would connect them in a more fluid way!

-> our little Cameo Appearance by DERPER biggrin.gif well ,since your vid was shot after the audio, the audio track and the vid were different from a point on - I mean you played different things, but since you struggled till the last minute to submit the materials, I thought it would be cool to make you the star in this one biggrin.gif

-> hey! is that Wolverine who learned how to use tapping? laugh.gif

see you at the next one mates!!!

Cosmin

It may be mate, but since you haven't left any audio on the vid, it was pretty difficult to sync them perfectly - leave the audio on for the next one please, k?

Awesome job everyone! Really fun to see it all in action, and surprised that my vid made it in! Thanks!

I bought a new camera yesterday (works GREAT, so no more video issues!) so I'm looking forward to the next ones!

Yeah Cosmin, that solo is AMAZING! I've been wanting to incorporate a similar style solo to my section on "Castlevania 2: Simon's Quest - Bloody Tears"!! I would love to learn some inspiration/technique from that solo!!
