> 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 Daniel! smile.gif mate I am glad we love the same bands and we have a common taste for heavy low tuned music biggrin.gif

I suggest we start out with making you an awesome rhythm player wink.gif what do you say?

hey!

well nothing is unclear about the lesson, but i'm strugling with part two,
having some trouble with alternate picking, but thats also because of my strings.
i have uncoated strings, and a friend of mine has coated, and with his guitar everything seems so much simpler! tongue.gif
can you advise to take coated strings, or go through it the hard way?

yeah another lesson would be great:D!
something to do when im not trying to nail alternate picking haha!

so what im working on now is alternate picking,
but also the overal timing an tightness of playing,
maybe it is not much but i didnt know where to start myself so:P haha suggestions are more than welcome!
maybe a sepperate lesson for that, without the alternate picking so i can focus on both without having to pick the same all day tongue.gif

Hey mate! Check this out, a lesson which deals with tightness would be this one tongue.gif

http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Metal-Metrics-4/

About the coated strings - I love them, but they are not the key to becoming a faster and cleaner alternate picker biggrin.gif the hard way is the only way, so let's get to work matey biggrin.gif

what do you think about the riffing/ tightness lesson?

Cosmin

yes thats an awsome riff! biggrin.gif
will take that on!
allready started out on it a little so!

nice new lesson you posted!
really awsome those metal metric series!
and really nice to see you get your inspiration from the same bands as i do.
august burns red is awsome!

but about the strings, its more that im finding out whats right for me^^
cause when i play with my friends guitar, everything seems so much simpler! (without losing quality!)
so now finding out what i think is right for me cool.gif
what do you use?
and what thickness of strings do you recommend for drop c tunings?
read that it had to be at least 010 to 046

looking forward to what you suggest!

Hey Daniel!

for drop C I am using 11-54 Elixir strings, you can also go for 10-52 so that you cna switch between drop C, drop C# and drop D pretty easily smile.gif

what tensions and brand are you currently using?

hey!

sorry for my very late response,
had a little surgery, nothing bad, but still:)

anyway, i used 010 to 052 from ernyball coated slinky,
they werent bad or anything, but i have thin fingers.
and my left hand really began to hurt after playing for just an hour.
so now i have dunlop zakk wylde heavy core strings 010 to 046

a little bit to thin maybe for drop c, but it still works, and i can now play without getting an infection in my left hand( yeah got that from my mom )
need to train my hands a bit more and slowly build my way up to thicker strings.

ok a little question,
in metal metrics 1 from 0.30 seconds, that part going for low to that high scream thing,
is that called something?
i just love the effect of that!
can you write down some more of those chords?

will be playing more guitar soon, as soon as my head is healed again tongue.gif

greets!

hey man, hope you'll be healing up fast!

Well, those sort of chords imply flat second intervals smile.gif they are usually very nice against low pitched chords. The flat second provides that dissonant sound and creates the nice tension between high and low biggrin.gif

In another context you can see this chord: xx17171713 which can be though upon as a voicing of the C major chord with an added 11th - see, the flat second interval is not so dissonant now that it is in another context biggrin.gif

what do you think?

Hey mate, it could be a good idea, so I'll think about a good way to illustrate it in a new lesson smile.gif regarding other new things for you to study, would you prefer something rhythm or lead oriented?

Alrighty, let's see something lead and a bit metal oriented biggrin.gif

http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Southern_Metal_Solo/

this one has got a lot of groove in it so it's both rhythm and lead developing wink.gif

what do you think?
