> 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 Carmine!

Let's see smile.gif where do you see yourself now as a guitarist and musician and where would you like to get to? It's important to set some directions smile.gif and what would you like to be able to play, stylewise? biggrin.gif

Looking forward to helping you out my friend!

Cosmin

Cosmin
here my take of the Beginner Corner 12 lesson. I give you the link even if I know that there I have to improve it: you can't tell me how. Apologie for the sound: I could not record the backing track but I am working on it and in a few weeks should be able to record it as well.

http://youtu.be/wNS8ZbhDS7g

I made few mistakes but I keep my hand moving.
By the way looking at the video I saw that I tend to use more elbow than wrist, is it fine? To the best of my knowledge the motion should come by the wrist. Also please consider that a) I am not an acoustic strummer (but I think this is vital to learn rhythm) and that cool.gif is 10 pm in a small flat with the family sleeping: not the best place to practice!

Hope to get few insight from you. Thanks in advance and kindest regards

hey carmine,

the take is shaping up nicely and of coourse, more practice can only provide better results, especially if you will focus on using your wrist when strumming smile.gif

your flow will increase, as well as your stamina plus, the ryhtmic possibilities will be more varied

can you try one more take, focusing on your wrist strumming?

Hi Carmine! The right hand looks relaxed and able to work very well wink.gif

There are improvements which can be done to your flow, but this mainly comes from playing a lot and paying attention to your coordination between the right and left hand.

I would suggest going through all of Bear's rhythm lessons, as they are very very good for you at this stage! I think you can pick another, record it and send it over so I can look/ listen to it wink.gif

do we have a deal? smile.gif
