> 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.

If we would harmonize the E major scale.

The I chord would be E Major, the II F#minor, III G#minor, IV A Major etc ?

When we harmonize the E major scale we get the D dim chord. But you can use the D major chord with E
For example, E-D-A how come? smile.gif

We use D# diminished in the case of the E major scale wink.gif I don't quite understand the question smile.gif Do you want to use the D major chord having an E in the bass?

Ah right, yes its D# dim.
But in the chord progression of my new song, which is in E major, I used a D major chord for example, then a C#/D, G#/A
All makes sense but the D chord. Sounds good, but theoretiacally idk really how it makes sense

Maybe it's in E mixolidian biggrin.gif and then you would have the D chord, representing the b7 step of the mixolidian mode. If you harmonize the mode, you will discover the chord is major tongue.gif

I have another song I want to do. I should finish the ones im working on, but I would like to start it.
Im satisfied with the melodies and structure i can come up with, but as usual I dont come up with any good chords.
My intentions is to do a song in a minor, combining with a harmonic minor.

Finish what you started mate smile.gif Hope you won't hate me for saying this, but you will end up coming here telling me you're lost again smile.gif Mentoring is not only about helping you with playing, but with helping you be able to walk a road from one end to the other wink.gif

Let's see what you are currently working on smile.gif

First thing, would you like to make a structure which you could follow? Intro, verse, chorus, verse, chorus, middle, chorus?

I think this is a good place to start, once you get things in place in your head, it will be easier to work, rather than just trying to come out with various random parts.

You know, it's easier to come up with things when you have limitations imposed biggrin.gif When there's too much freedom, there's also too much confusion and a vast number of options which are always leading to more confusion.

The intro/main riff is kind of done.
The verse is a quite done, i will do a chorus too and record.

Also working on this one:
http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/solo-guit...ck-ballad-solo/

That 0:44 lick is so hard ohmy.gif

Also bens iced earth but my right hand just dont like that gallop

Made a little recording for you smile.gif
Im kind of happy with the main riff and the phrases. Just got to come up with some better arpeggios, and some cool chorus riff.
Well its an instrumental song, more a melodic one than a riffing song, so the riffs are not supposed to be the coolest you ever heard, but it still needs another good riffing idea I think.

Hey Cosmin I need help with a lick: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cYM864IOTs8...feature=g-all-c
1:36.

A legato lick. It look like from the video that there is no plektrum used at all in the beginning of the lick.

Hey Erik, indeed, Marco doesn't use any plectrum almost until the end of the phrase - I'll slow it down and see what I can tell you about it wink.gif

Hey cosmin, made a final take for the collab.
I will probably improve the solo ending and diminished licks a little and put on youtube outside of the collab, if its ok with you smile.gif

also tell me when you have checked out the legato lick
cheers

Howdy Erik! Sure man, tweak it and post it on YT if you'd like wink.gif

I will tackle the lick on Tuesday when I get back in town, I am leaving to the mountain house. I am having the laptop with me and I will be on the forums to answer stuff, but I will not be having my guitars with me.

Glad you made it on the collab man!

Cosmin
