> 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 Cosmin, thanks for sparing some time for me tongue.gif.

Before speaking of anything musical, I need to get rid of something about guitar technique which is bugging me for way too long.

For that cause, lets consider this basic major scale shape:

---5--7--9------------------------------------ (I don't know how to post tabs with forum tools so I typed by hand)
------------5--7--9-----------------------------
---------------------6--7--9----------------------
------------------------------6--7--9----------------
---------------------------------------7--9--10--------
-------------------------------------------------7--9--10

Back then, I was playing scales, or lets say basically anything related with alternate picking with only one of my finger touching to frets. For example, to play 5--7--9, I put my index to 5 and pick the string, after that I lift my index finger and put my middle finger to 7, and so on..

This type of play is maybe fine for going down, but when it comes to playing backwards (like 9-7-5) it sounds so bad I can't even find the words to describe how terrible I feel. It sounds very unconnected, there are little gaps between notes which you can't hear exactly but enough to take away all the musicality, the flow of music.

I asked my former guitar instructor about that. He said, to play these type of partitions, I should do a kind of "spider-walk" on the frets. For example when a triplet like 9--7--5 appears, I must put my pinky finger to 9 and middle finger to 7 simultaneously. For a while I played like this but the problem was still there.

Now, I'm trying to incorporate pull-offs to play these, e.g. to play 9-7-5, every finger takes their place at the same time and, for example when going from 9 to 7, I both pick the string and pull off to the note. Playing like this sounds better than anything else I came up with, but still, STILL it didn't disappear completely.

I seriously need to get rid of this for whatever I play it simply does not sounds right. I'll post a rec as soon as possible for clarification. And again, thanks for taking me on smile.gif

Good morning Cem!

your problem is solvable tongue.gif a video recording would greatly help, but out of what I am figuring out, you are having some sync issues which, with the proper practicing habits, will vanish in no time smile.gif Nothing can't be fixed if worked on slow enough to sound perfect and sped up while sounding perfect!

Let's see a little recording and take it from there, ok? What else are you working on at the moment?

Cosmin
