My goal is to be able to create and master lead and rhythm
I want to learn More scales and learn the ones I know in more depth
and learn how to apply what I learn
I want to learn Metal/Rock Rhythm Riffs and learn how to write a back track

I dont understand the order to give chords their names or what ones to use and the arrangement to put them in
for the type of music Im trying to create also I dont play any songs all the way through I just know parts

Strong Points, Browse my site at http://draziw.webs.com/ I have created links about me, One shows My Knowledge on
scales, chords and the wheel of fifths, another shows videos of me and videos I like, another is music I have recorded by my self as well
as with friends and the last one I will mention is the sites I learn from, also I know that the 1st 3rd and 5th make up the major Chord


I learn most from Metallica, other bands are Lynyrd Skynyrd, Shadows Fall, All that Remains, Deep Purple, Ozzy, Nirvana,Pink Floyd,
Credence Clear Water, POD, 3 Doors Down and a lot others

I found some arpeggios in the key of E Harmonic Minor and a friend showed me how to get the scale and chords out of it,
and then said we should write a song using this scale

Awesome! How about we will start with an exercise that will develop your technique and timing! It's a very cool exercise that will help you a lot!
Make sure to practice it using a metronome at a very slow tempo!

You did a very good job! I would like you to add those exercises into your warming up routine!
Also I think you can slow down a little bit and really play every note with a right dynamic and tone!In the mean time I will work on a scale assignment for you!

Awesome! Here is a very cool scale exercise! It is a G major scale but it has very interesting shapes that will get stuck in your head much faster! Make sure to practice it slow using a metronome!

You did a very good job! I can see a few mistakes! First of all your right hand is very tight up and it looks like you are using your index finger as well? I think loosing up and make movements up and down without using index finger will help a lot!
Also I can suggest to practice it at a slower tempo it's a mechanical exercise and slower you do it better results you will get!
You are on the right track just slow down a bit and make sure you have a full control over your hands!
Let me know if you have any questions!

I saw that you have a pick, but it seems like your index finger is moving as well when you are picking?
This is a very good exercise that will help you a lot! Also we will start working on more melodic stuff next week! For now I would like you to include this exercise into your warm up routine!
Let me kow if you have any questions!

so you say you know a lot about theory, maybe this is what we should start talking about, I still want to do the exercise's, I will give each one a few days and show you what I have and then you can decide if I need to go up or down, I want to read the GMC Theory Grimoire and I'm sure I will have lots of questions, what your idea on this?

I think it's a wonderful idea!!! I can start explaining you theory right away! And book will help you as well!

A few questions before we will start!
1) Build F major triad
2) Build a D major scale
3) A - B - C - D - E - F# - G What mode is that?
4) How many sharps in E major scale?
Don't worry if you can't answer on some I am just trying to figure out where to start!

1.
2. D E F# G A B C# D
3. G major scale, looked at the wheel of fifths to see witch one had only one sharp and then the A tells me its the second mode making it Dorian, had to use the scale generator to double check that one
4. one shape, the notes are E F# G# A B C# D# E, there are 7 modes and I believe 12 octaves on the fret board, I have 24 frets



I like questions like this, so how did I do?
