> 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 mate! Check this out: here is your spot! We can discuss anything you like about your development as a player and musician!

I can help you out and I will also help you post recordings of yourself wink.gif please tell me what sort of music are you listening to and I will go ahead and suggest a practice routine. Now, if I could see you play, that would help a whole lot! So let me know when you would like to send a vid or recording of some sort wink.gif

Ask anything and I'll do my best to help out!

Cosmin

Hi Cosmin, sorry for the late reply, i posted yesterday too but it didnt seem to make it
Thanks for being my mentor smile.gif rolleyes.gif
I love thrash metal, melodic metal, heavy metal, a bit of nu metal and hard rock.
My favorite guitarists and what i like about them
- Dave Mustaine - overall the best guitarist for me, great at riffing, does great solos, and he is a great songwriter, lyricist and a good vocalist too. My biggest influence
- Alexi Laiho - a great shredder.
- Kirk Hammett and James Hetfield - a great team, i like kirk's use of wah, but sometimes he overdoes it
- Eddie Van Halen - Love his tapping and tone
- Randy Rhodes
- Marty Friedman - Love his vibrato and note selection, gives his solos an exotic, chinese or arabic kinda like an eastern feel
- Jimmy Page
- Slash - not one of my favs, but definitely like him
- Jeff Hanneman and Kerry King
- Bullet For My Valentine's Matt Tuck & Michael Padget

thats it probably......

here's a vid of my playing, I've been playing for about one year, but could play for the past 3-4 months due to studies, so I am a bit off.



Here are the things I would like to work on
- Lead Playing
- Technique Development
- Theory (right from scratch, all i know is the note names, whole steps & half steps, and minor pentatonic scale ( just how to play it)

Thanks & reply soon
Yash

Hey there Yash!

we can start right away wink.gif but I would like to ask you to send the video again, as there's no link here sad.gif

Theory

We shall begin with the major scale and I'd like you to take a look over these links here - we shall start our discussion based on them:

http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/wiki/inde...01_%28lesson%29
http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Beginn...-C-Major-Scale/

Technique

I would start with alternate picking and legato and tackle other techniques later on!

A very important idea is to manage to play consciously through various rhythmic subdivisions, thus I am recommending this lesson:

http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Picking-Hand-Basics/

Please take a look over these and let me know on your thoughts, k?

Cosmin

Yeah I looked, pretty basic things, I'll have'em done within a week.
Thanks for the comment on the attitude, I played with emotion right from day 1, when i didnt know wat a powercord was, and i'll be like that forever, emotion first.
But the weapon doesnt help me, its neck is too fat......should I shave it now, or should I get another guitar and then experiment on it ?????
Wat do u think ? mellow.gif

Mate, a fat neck will give you a good boost on tone wink.gif don't shave it. In time, you will discover that an axe which is less easy to play on, may have a better tone than one which is easier to play biggrin.gif do, go with what you have right now!

OK, but we're talking about a $80 guitar.It has no tone, but you're right, if that happens, I am gonna lose whatever tone i have, so I'll hold on, but if you think that it wont have much effect on such a cheap guitar, I'll shave it

Mate, we can use this at this point, but of course, if you have big plans and a budget, I can help out on choosing a new guitar smile.gif what do you think?

Yeah, I'll be buying new gear this June or July..... Budget will be anywhere from US$4,000 - $10,000, it depends.And I need to buy everything from scratch, as if I never had anything
Here are the most probable stuff
- A Jackson King V (probably an old KV1 or KV Pro, or even custom shop)
- Jackson Soloist or Dean Michael Angelo Batio MAB1 Armorflame (looks awesome)
- An acoustic (ovation, 12 string maybe)
- A Marshall head (JVM 410HCF or the great 50th anniversary head they bring out, like they did on 30th anniversary) unsure.gif
OR
- Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier Road King or Mark IIC+ unsure.gif
- Marshall 1960DM Dave Mustaine sig. cab
- An FX processor, like Fractal Axe FX II or Boss GT-10 (dont have much idea for a processor)
- Accessories and foot controller
- Power Attenuator
- If I still have money left after this, Dunlop Crybaby Rack Wah

What do you think of the list ?????? Anything you'd like to add or delete or modify ????? smile.gif

Nah, I am not gonna be with a pop singer dry.gif I am METAL cool.gif
And I'll probably have to cut a lot coz i might get just $4000, if I am Lucky, I might get $10,000, or anything in between.
But yeah, i'm gonna get some nice gear....

By the way, I am done with the major scale, will be posting a vid soon, then picking hand exercise and then we're off to rhythm guitar, right ???

Hey Yash,

as we decided together smile.gif I will guide you through the world of rhythm, advancing together towards the intricate world of metal riffing wink.gif

For starting off, we will get a good grasp on timing with Bear's lessons, k?

They may seem easy, but they are the perfect brick for your solid rhythmic foundation smile.gif

http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Beginn..._1_Open_Chords/

http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Beginn...-2-Open-Chords/

http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Beginn...-Open-Chords-3/

Regarding the recording - you need to set the guitar volume low high enough to be heard just a but over the backing track, but not too loud and set the camera on the tripod in front of you focusing on your hands - take a pic first to see if you focused right and then once you're settled, push the rec button smile.gif try a few tests until you get it right and let me know if it worked wink.gif

see you around and let me know what you think man

Cosmin
