> 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.

Cool, I see the connection now, will learn all parts and apply to maybe not all 14 but a few more keys to start with tongue.gif

Any theory behind why it becomes like this?


Hey Erik! The idea is the following:

When you harmonize a scale you can only use notes belonging to that scale, so for example, in C major:

the note belonging to the second step is D and you can only use notes from the C major scale to make up that chord -> D minor (D F A) and so on with the rest of the chords which harmonize the scale smile.gif thus the formula we were talking about is created

hope this helps

the theory is kinda combing coming back, all the old stuff I learned togheter with new things smile.gif
But there is very much to learn, forming triads in every key.

Can we set up a learning plan or something? Learning to apply this in every key isnt done on one day!
I can now manage root inversion in C major, I have memorized the chords.
G major will be the next step right.
What do you say?

Hey Erik smile.gif indeed, this is a lengthy process and I do believe we can slip some more stuff. I'd like to ask you first, how much time do you dedicate to the guitar each day?

I play for a teatcher at a local music school 1 h/week, also I will be reading theory there 1h/week starting next week smile.gif
This theory will however be different from what we are doing now, it will be more conservative its mostly for classical guitar, note reading etc but all theory is good theory smile.gif So we can keep doing what we do now!

It depends, usually 2h a day, now when I have decided to start practicing for real again. Sometimes 3-4 hours.
Im learning a few songs , doing some theory and working on my technique. Also working on my new song who alex feather and sinisa cekic helped me to get started with. I will also do a cover of the song "seven" I got help sorting out here on the forum in a collab with some other guy.
So I have plenty to do.

Well as I said when I started classical i got bored after a while I was not so old, but when I got my first electrical guitar it became my intrest #1.

I will also apply for a musicalproduction school, the only one in my country, it involves studio knowledge, and everything around it, but also instruments. My skills will be tested, I will also have to present something I have created, for example the song I am working on so I have plenty to do but the tests werent that hard. But this is one of the reasons I need to improve.
Also you will learn playing multiple instruments so my sister is also learning my piano, I will later on also learn drums and bass playing.

cheers

Hey Erik,

judging a bit after all you told me tongue.gif you are involved into a lot of musical activities, which beats all in-house practicing and if you got 2 hrs to use each day, here's what i suggest:

30 minutes theory
30 minutes ear training
30 min dedicated to rhythm/ jamming
30 minutes dedicated to technique/ phrasing

the last 2 points are to be alternated from day to day, i.e. in one day you can focus on rhythm and technique and the next, on jamming and phrasing.

I shall be giving you different tasks every 2 weeks smile.gif consisting in GMC lessons based on the things above, how does this sound? Let me know and we shall get to it right away!

Cosmin

Alrighty Erik! Here are your first four assignments:

Rhythm:

http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Metal-...t-Hand-Workout/ let me know if this one's too difficult, k?

Phrasing

Since you are a Marco fan, try this one tongue.gif

http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Modern...o-Marco-Sfogli/

I chose these two as they incorporate a lot of elements and they are a bit more difficult, but i want to push your playing up! Let me know if they are ok and we can start dealing with them. wink.gif

all the best

Cosmin

PS; if we have a green light with these, I shall give you a few tasks on legato and bending as they are incorporated in the Marco lesson biggrin.gif

Good suggestions!
Got plenty to do. Would like to take a week of from pre-engineer school and just work on all the things I have to do on the guitar.
I will try, but I cant promise I will have time to record the lesson this month!

Also, the rythm lesson, will it be possible to play it in standard tuning, or will it be more difficult? I guess its possible if the song doesnt use the low E# string

Hey Erik , if you don't want to submit an official REC take of the lesson and you only want to record it in order for you to learn it and discuss it together, you can play it in E standard as well, but if you want to use it for the REC zone, you'll need to play it exactly as it is done in the original recording smile.gif

Let me know if I can help you further with this wink.gif

cheers

Did 2 hours theory today since it didnt play well today. feel comfortable harmonizing the C major and the G major scale, starting with G major soon then wink.gif
Also checking out the different colours of the chords and the theory behind them

also cosmin check out this rythm, Im thinking of learning that biggrin.gif dont have a 7 string though..

My GOD! This is awesome! I didn't notice he posted this one biggrin.gif well, it is tricky man - try the rhythm lesson I suggested, as it has elements which will help you out with this bit Marco plays here wink.gif

Glad to know the theory is going good! Keep me updated please wink.gif

Im thikning of using my fender as my drop tune guitar but it isnt as stable as the Ibanez.
Still I got sound issues with my Ibanez, I will record how it can sound and show you.

When you strike a string hard, at some frets on the B and G strings its almost like you hit an harmonic, it is a neck issue I think. It isnt the string height cause it ok now. I think the neck hit a bad poistion cause of the cold, now its warmer again so I will adjust the neck

Hmmm, if I were in your stead, I would use the fender for dropped tuning biggrin.gif I absolutely love how a telecaster sounds in drop C wink.gif tried it already biggrin.gif

About the strings, hmmm, I also think it's a neck issue but, I must admit I have never confronted myself with such problems sad.gif let me know how things are going wink.gif and let's hear the recording!

Hehehe! Nice mate! Continue clockwise, until the sharps become too many - you will notice that they will be cumbersome to work with when the idea of E sharp and B sharp will eventually appear biggrin.gif then you can transform that scale into one using flats - are you aware of the enharmonic relationships? How are you faring with the lessons?

rock on!

Enharmonic relationship appears between notes which basically sound the same but carry different musical value. Eb = D# this is what it's all about. Let's see the takes mate biggrin.gif

Aha, Yes I know, notes same in practice, but different in theory smile.gif
Well to be honest I just cant squeeze out any good distortion sound of my Fender, but I will try to make the track justice, more focusing of the theory and technical parts of the track rather than getting a good tone for them.
