> 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.

Hello and welcome to your own personal mentoring thread, Waggers!

Can you please tell me a bit about your skills so far and preferences regarding music styles? We'll have to take this step by step and see how you can get blazing in no time wink.gif

all the best

Hey mate!

You are on the right track smile.gif but you need to get rid of the bending and vibrato done with the fingers. Try using your wrist for a change and the results will be far better. Also, at about 0.52 there's a not sounding a bit loose.

All in all your left hand should be more confident when playing - the timing was good but the notes sounded a bit week somehow.

Let's try the same take having in mind the things above. Practice them before recording and of course, let me know if you have problems with working from the wrist smile.gif
