> 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.

biggrin.gif Sir Maestro! Here is MM5 @ appx 75% of speed. Man, this riff is fantastic when played right, it is not a simple riff I have found. It sounds great, but the sequence is not what it seems, as I was playing it while leaving many intricacies out man. Great riff Cosmin, for real! smile.gif I am ready to work up full speed, after I get your feedback and direction good sir biggrin.gif

Alrightie man! This sounds good! Clean and accurate! Good work! the only details you should focus on, would be the 16th note and triplet lick - you played 8 sixteenth notes instead of 4 sixteenth notes and 3 triplets. Its 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 biggrin.gif

Focus on this little issue and then raise the speed. Oh and don't gallop before playing the octaves at the end of each verse part wink.gif keep them straight- as I played them in the lesson. It's not wrong, but if you wanna take it to the REC section, you will lose points tongue.gif

Keep it up Tuck! Good work!!

Hola good Maestro! biggrin.gif I sir, have been in the Dominican Republic for the past few weeks with my in laws. However, I am back now and with my guitar!!!! biggrin.gif Haha! Hope you didn't think I put down my axe for good. smile.gif I'm back home in my groove ring sir, time to continue...

Ok, I am going to pick right back up where we left off if that is ok man? I'll video Metal Metrics 5 the right way on video, then record a second take just straight audio, and pan the two takes in opposite directions? I understand that to be the technique y'all were talking about...

Anyway, I'm happy to be back once again bro, let's get me learned on guitar, lol. biggrin.gif

-Tucker

P.S. BTW, awesome new lesson my good mentor!

Welcome back Tuck! Thank you very much! biggrin.gif

Well, I think it would be better if you would record two audio shots and pan them, while shooting the video shots as well wink.gif the realism will be WAY BETTER biggrin.gif

Mix one video shot with the panned audio shots and that should do the trick biggrin.gif

let me know if you need anything else ok ?

Haha! Gosh, it is a place of beauty...for the -rich- Americans at the resorts, but for this broke gringo its street side grills, no air conditioner, and 12 ppl to a cab... biggrin.gif I sir, am going to post up a couple videos using the internet at my school, I think it will let me do that. I am so ready for your next set of instructions and a new lesson, I can wait no longer HAHA tongue.gif I'll be able to afford me some internet when the bulk of my financial aid rolls in around the middle of August. I'd like to try and squeeze in a few lessons before then, even though I can't communicate daily. Also , I actually wrote my on song/riff for your viewing pleasure, Maestro. You will be proud, entertained, or hate music forever after you hear it biggrin.gif lol. TTYS Cos.

-Tucker

P.S. Btw, posters are almost finished, I'll post a copy for your approval this weekend sometime smile.gif

Cos Good Sir, I am putting in 2 to 3 hours a night! biggrin.gif I just need internet soooo badly for my mentorship man, for real. I get financial aid for fall semester any day, I cannot wait... Anyway, I am at the university right now putting the finishing touches on the poster. They delayed the tournament until three weeks from now, so I have to get the flyers and posters out!! biggrin.gif Oh man, it will have Aria, your youtube page, and facebook page plastered all over it, I even put a link for GMC biggrin.gif

Cos, I had an opportunity to buy an Ibanez RG470 guitar for 200 bucks, and I freakin love it!! Is it similar to your Ibanez sir? biggrin.gif Best guitar I have played yet!

I'll get back to you this weekend man, I have to for the tourney deadline!! biggrin.gif

Cos, Good Sir, I have consistently found it more comfortable, smoother sounding, and have more control when I play with my finger instead of a pick. Is this a bad habit to get into, or simply a different yet equal style preference?


Your ever loyal and attentive student,

Howdy Tuck! Looking forward to seeing that poster man! biggrin.gif About the playing with the fingers, that's a different approach to playing - if you like it, we can most surely discuss about it, but riffing will not be included, as for that you need the pick smile.gif
