> 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 Dogukan!

I'd be honored to help out smile.gif

Mate, out of what I have heard in your recordings, aside from the styles you would like to tackle, your rhythm playing could be improved, as for tightness and timing in general.

I would suggest we start with a series of lessons focusing on this aspect - I want you to chop metal out of that axe! biggrin.gif

What do you think? R ya up for it? tongue.gif

Okie dokie Dogukan!

I was thinking we should start with this one - it's pretty straight forward and it involves some finesse elements as well as punchiness!

http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Metal-Metrics-4/

I would like you to focus on tightness/ precision and attack smile.gif think Zakk Wylde ok? No mercy! biggrin.gif Is Sunday a good deadline for you to nail this one and make a REC take out of it?

Take the time to examine it and let me know if there are any questions, k?

all the best

Cosmin

I'm on it! wink.gif

Dogukan, the take is good but we can improve the details of course wink.gif

Check it out:

- I think the guitar is a bit detuned, so please check it out before recording, k?
- The tone need less gain - if it has too much gain, you will feel it easier to play with but harder to control if you dig what I mean biggrin.gif
- there are little details such as the slides in the beginning of the riff which you kinda left out
- if you decrease the gain level, you will be compelled to play tighter, as the tone will force more definition out of you wink.gif

Give these a try and let's get a 10 together, deal?
