> 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.

Well..... my recording efforts didnt go exactly to plan! I couldnt get my guitar into the PC so I had to settle for using a laptop with a built in webcam dry.gif
I will get a proper device for my next recordings, hopefully I will have a better system of recording by the weekend.

I think the crappy webcam recordings are enough to give you an idea of my limited abilities though Cosmin.

This is one of Ivan's lessons ( original - http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Classi...ing_Techniques/ ) - ( Ive had about 2 weeks at this lesson. ) :

My backing track for Alive which I was going to post sounded really poor so I just took a random backing track from youtube and improvised. you probably only need to listen to 60 seconds of it as I get a bit lost after that!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1VcOsxRhbik

Apologies for the audio and video being out of sync...... I have no idea why that happened but I will get better recordings next time.... promise!

Hey Scott! Looks like you got one cool tattoo there biggrin.gif I want a lot for myself, but I always postpone doing this, it seems sad.gif no worries for the recordings, for the time being they are enough to help us out smile.gif

Well, your bending skills need a bit of a workout from what I am seeing here and I wanted to ask you, how much time can you dedicate to guitar playing each week? T'would help out so I know how to schedule stuff for ya.

Anyway, judging by your preferences and goals, I'd say we should combine, theory (this involves scales/ arpeggios/ chords and relationships between them) with rhythm and articulation for starting out smile.gif

Based on your schedule, I'll make up a routine smile.gif just let me know

al lthe best

I do like my tattoo! it took me about 18 months to get completed but I had wanted a full sleeve for years so it was worth all the hassle.

Im not surprised you picked out my bends! they can be very 'random'. huh.gif Its not the best when you want to be dave gilmour!

Time wise I can 100% commit to 45 minutes at least Monday to Friday. At the weekends I have no real time constraints so I can practice much longer. I could practise 3 - 4 hours or whatever at the weekend.... as I have no social life biggrin.gif

Alright! Well, let's divide the 45 minutes into 15 minutes for warming up and 30 minutes to work on a lesson based on the things you want to learn during the week.

During the weekend, we can put in some ear training and theory, plus recording your efforts during the week smile.gif

I am thinking of making up a list of lessons for you smile.gif so tell me, would you be up for tackling 4 lessons a month?
