> 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.

Oy fellow GMCrs smile.gif

this month, it's time to start grooving easily over a reggae influenced beat! Lay back, enjoy the sunshine and maybe put in a bit of sorrow while playing over this track. After all it's a combination between reggae grooves and the fiery rock chops you guys will come up with!

Chord progression: Am Em Gm Em

Scales: A Aeolian, A Minor Pentatonic, A Blues even a bit of A Dorian if you manage to emphasize it over the Am Em combo smile.gif as we discussed in the video chat sessions on modes, there can be found modal progressions within progressions. Such as this case here - Am Em can be a Dorian progression (A Dorian is derived from the G major scale)









Tempo: 75 BPM

Please submit your takes before May 20th 2012

Preferable material format:

Audio - wav. (one take with the backing track/ one take with the guitar only, no effects)
Movie - avi.

Try and develop melodies and themes with this one and let's see how many of you are into reggae and rock here!

If you want to use distortion in your take, you can send me the track with the distortion on, but no reverb, delay or other effects smile.gif I will take care of those, k? smile.gif

Cosmin, that was a BLASTIN take! The last run is simply an amazing mix of bending and legato! Very, very melodic and your solo makes mine look like a little girl xD

Thanks man, but I don't agree on the little girl part biggrin.gif I analyzed your take and your melodic sense is developing from one collab and recording to another wink.gif you are on a very ascending path my friend! Cheers to you!
