For the time in being I think is better if you give me the assignment, better having the basic down well. On a later stage we can concentrate on what I like. I am not posting video since I use the exercise just to get dexterity and speed.
Thanks Alex

This exercise is made to develop timing and help to sync hands together! When you are practicing use a metronome and do it at a very slow tempo!

I am taking it very easy since is a bit tricky. Still get a bit confuse with the fingers. Did not think to post avideo since it is a workout but will do if you want. It is an exercise that will always be with me, it will change only the speed.
As beginner how many bpm should I aim to?
Regards
Carmine

It will be really cool if you can post a recording of you playing! I think max 80 BPM but 70 will be fine as well!
This exercise is very very helpful if you are doing it on a daily basis!

Alex,
I'm very behind with your lessons. Too many things here at GMC.
Anyway, Santana licks are a bit tricky for me.

I will do my best. Regards,

Hi Alex
I am practising your hand workout. Being a workout I use to play it a little bit everyday (it works as warm up too). Do you want me to post a video when I finish it all or will you send me some other assignment to study at the same time?

Thanks and have a great week end

Carmine

PS I am doing the Van Halen lesson, hope I can post a video in the REC soon

Hi Alex,
hope you are having a good sunday.
i need your help with my guitar sounds. Now that I started playing a bit better I need to control my tone as well.
Can you help me. You have seen my guitars in the videos. at the moment I am using a POD HD500 and we should start with the basic, just (modelled) amp, then we can add effects.
What do you think, can we do something on this?

Thanks in advance,

cARMINE

Thanks Alex,
I was talking generally. I am relying on the patches you can download for the POD, but if I don't like it or I have to create one, I am hopeless. Even worse I have to use my small amp or few stomp-boxes.

Have a great day,
Carmine
