> 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.

Hey Jesse! Oh, so you do have experience with rhythm playing! That's very good man smile.gif We can start like this:

- Theory - the lesson on the major triads
- Alternate picking: http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Picking-Hand-Basics/
- Legato: http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Bens-Land-Of-Legato/
- Rhythm: http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/rhythm-gu...c-metal-rhythm/

how do all these look/ sound to ya?

Cosmin

PS: take a look at them and let me know what you think smile.gif we can also work on separate exercises as well wink.gif




Those all look very fun ! Which is a good thing because then I will practice more smile.gif I can see why you had said 45min was to short to go through all those I should be working 20min on every one everyday . This Sunday I am playing in church with my friend and I get to play the lead guitar part for Salvation is here by Hillsong . I will try uploading the link but this is the first time I have done this so I am not sure if it will work



I have been practicing that song for almost 2 hours today smile.gif !!!!

SoI finished the alternate picking lesson smile.gif The legato lesson is very hard ! I thought it would be easy but I guess I just miss judged it . I find it hard to keep my volume up . The lesson on major triads is going good other than I find it very hard to reach the low E string when making chords it is quite a stretch and makes my hand sore and take's me a while to form the shape . But I hope practice will fix that smile.gif The rythm lesson is going good and is quite enjoyable ! I will now have lots of ideas to pull from there next time I am playing a song with power chords !

Currently I have no way of recording myself sad.gif . I see how it would be a good thing so you could point out my mistakes to me so I could fix them. I have learnt 3/5 of the metal rythm lesson so in a few days it should be complete smile.gif It is going to take me a while to finish the legato lesson though . Improvising with arpeggios intrigues me so I am working on finishing the lesson on major triads so we can get on to the next one smile.gif

Ok man! You know, in this thread smile.gif anything goes, so if you have a mobile phone which can record videos, or a small cam, or webcam, it is very good. If not, we'll try it like this and I'll keep pouring info for ya, k? tongue.gif

Well you got me thinking and I managed to figure out a way to record smile.gif hopefully this works .
Just for a trial run kinda thing I recorded the song above cause it has some rythm a little bit of lead ,
and a solo I made up after the second verse . not sure if the uploading onto the GMC site will work but if not I will keep trying .

Haha here is another take smile.gif

/Users/sophiapresakarchuk/Music/iTunes/iTunes Media/Music/Jesse/Casting Crown's cover's/Lifesong 7.m4a

Try number 3 smile.gif

Hey mate! Sorry for the late reply smile.gif I listened to the takes - the first three are unavailable unfortunately, so I think you have to check out what's going on on soundcloud. Regarding the last one - the lead parts have some issues on timing and articulation, but the rhythm parts seem ok. Now the recorded guitar was a bit louder than the track so that was probably another thing which didn't help the overall sound too much.

I would suggest that once you have everything set with the account and membership, we should start dabbling into lead playing territory - especially regarding your timing and articulation smile.gif

what do you think man?

Cosmin

The takes are all the same one I just couldn't figure out how to upload it properly the first 3 times and sorry next time I will turn the guitar down .

Dabbling into lead playing sounds awesome !! I have wanted to play lead guitar since I was just a kid listening to music smile.gif

I got everything with the membership sorted out , He said it is auto renewing until I want to cancel so I am good to go !

Hey man! Good to hear - just celebrated Easter and I am still having some goodies around so I'm a bit slower than usual tongue.gif

Lead playing in the direction I am figuring out you are headed, is a mix of using chord shapes, arpeggios, alternate picking maybe and articulation such as bends and vibrato biggrin.gif

A little bit of everything would be interesting, so I would suggest we mix all these in a thing such as this one here:

http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/creed-...y-my-sacrifice/

It uses octaves and a lot of modern lead elements smile.gif we can take it piece by piece and see what you can extract and use in your own playing after mastering this one biggrin.gif

what do you think?

Cosmin

Hey smile.gif The only thing I don't like about that lesson is the weird tuning . It has got some kind of weird: D,A,D,A,D,D tuning . Would I have to tune to down like that ?

Hey smile.gif I kind of prefer either standard or drop D tuning , I Don't really like the others alternate tuning's.
So if you don't mind me not working on that one I would like some other lesson smile.gif Have a nice day !

Hey mate smile.gif no problem at all! How about this one: http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/afi-style-lesson/ the guitar is only tuned down one half step so it won't pose any problems I think. The idea is that the stuff you are oriented towards usually has various tuning styles smile.gif We shall develop more concepts together based on this lesson, if you like it wink.gif

what do you think?
