> 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.

ok dude, Ive had quite a frustrating week. On the plus side Ive managed to increase my practice time quite a bit and have got between 1 - 1.5 hours each night last week. On the negative side this second lesson is giving me major problems.
The main problem is............. I just cant seem to play it! I am still only halfway through it and even the opening bends are giving me problems.
I want to play those bends with my middle finger but the instructor plays it with his pointing finger and mine just doesnt seem to know how to bend a string!

anyway, I thought I would record it tonight after a whole week of working on it to let you hear it in all its epic fail-ness wink.gif it is only halfway through so the good thing is that it doesnt last long biggrin.gif

to try and cheer myself up I had a go at this 'satriani rock lesson' by Gabe.
I only had 2 days on this but at least I managed to play it all the way through biggrin.gif

Hey mate sorry for being a little late, but now I have to take care of 40 of you and it takes sometime till I get to write to everyone biggrin.gif

Alrightie, I'd suggest a bit more patience on these - the Satriani one was DEFINITELY better! YOu have to improve the timing and articulation, so bending is mainly a concern, but, give it time man - articulation doesn't build up that fast (I know it's a bit frustrating) Will you try and record over slower backing tracks? smile.gif It would do you a whole lotta good!

Let's see the takes and discuss!

totally dude, I noticed the mega army you have amassed! you take all the time you need mate. I was just trying to make a bit of a joke at my crappy solo rolleyes.gif

I will try some slower stuff. I think my enthusiasm can make me rush things a bit, I'll definitely slow things down and try to be more precise.

cheers cosmin.
