> HEY MAN, I really need your help...

...the thing is, I need you to start progressing faster then ever, but to achieve that I need your help:

* Don't know where to start? Just pm me and we will sort it out directly, I am online every day.

* Join My Army. Sounds aggressive? It is! We can study anything from the most fearsome picking techniques to bombastic songwriting. A medal of honor awaits the brave. Seriously, this is an opportunity for you to get a personalised learning experience...what are you waiting for?!

* 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?

* Finally I want to tell you a secret. Nah I changed my mind - pm me instead ;)

Hi Bryze26!! Welcome to your thread for the Gab's Army!

Could you please tell me a bit about you, your musical tastes, influences, strengths and weaknesses? I would need some videos of you playing rhythm and solo guitar, so please post your best material here. If you have some music or ideas of your own, also post them here. Also let me know how you think that I can help you and what are your expectations for our job. You can check the other Army's thread to discover the different modalities of this project.


The principles of our Army are:

+ Improve your technique
+ Make music and solos
+ Have fun
+ Destroy the enemy (hahaha not realy just kidding... )

Hi Gab, I'm Brian from Philippines.Started playing guitar at age 14 now I'm 28.Type of music i play are rock,metal and been messin with blues before.Biggest influence for me is Joe Satriani but can play couple of his songs(the easy ones). I consider myself as an intermediate player.Before i have a band playing just cover songs but when work has dealt with me,i become a bedroom guitarist.I want to improve my technique and improvisational skill(lead,rhythm) in rock and metal music.I want to enjoy practicing my goals because sometimes i get bored and lose my morale.I'm lost what to practice to achieve these goals and i think im in a certain level as a guitar player but i cant move on to the next step.Hope joining your army will take me to the peek i want to be. No videos or soundtrack of me playing uploaded as of now but its in progress.Will post ASAP

Hi friend! Thanks for the description and for joining the army! smile.gif

Here we will work on lessons that I'll assign you (we can discuss the selection) and after some days of work you will be posting at the REC program. Also we will work on collaborations. Do you know what a collab is?

What lesson are you working on?

That's a great choice mate! It's a good lesson for alternate picking technique. Concentrate on timing and on keeping both hands synchronized. Also you have to mute the strings that you are not playing to get a clean sound. I'll be waiting for the video! Please post it here!
