My goals on the site are to be able to shred , and become a much more technical player .
My weakness is speed, phrasing , lack of full performable repertoire
Strongest in musicality, making things sound as musical as I can, improvisation is decent
Favorite guitarists: jack thammarat, andy Timmons , Stevie ray Vaughan, Steve vai, Eric Johnson , joe bonamassa

Awesome! I am glad to have you on board!
To start I would like you to work on your hands coordination! We need to get them synced together!
Usually right hand is fine and the left hand is the trouble one!
I have a perfect exercise that will do the trick!
Here is the tab:

That would be awesome if you can record yourself playing it! This way I can see your progress! smile.gif
You can let me know when you are ready and either do a recording of yourself or just let me know and I will post a new assignment for you!

The thing about this exercise is slower you do it better results you will get!
You don't have to bring it up to 115 or 120 BPM
Just do it at a comfortable tempo even if it's 10BPM doesn't matter as long as you are doing it the right way!
I am looking forward to hear your take! smile.gif

Yeah! If you can that would be great! I just want to make sure that you are doing it right! After that I will assign you a musical exercise and a backing track that we will be working with! smile.gif
Looking forward to hear your take!

Perfect! You did a great job! I would like you to add this exercise into your warm up routine! And you will se a huge progress in no time!
Let's get into melodic assignment! smile.gif
Here is the backing track I would like you to use to practice!
http://soundcloud.com/alex-feather-akimov/withguitar
It's a minor blues
The chord changes are:
Ami7 - Dmi7 - Ami7 - Emi7 - Dmi7 - Ami7
I have a really good exercise that will help you develop your own style!
I want you to start creating your own licks!
To start we will use A minor blues pentatonic in 3 positions:







You can use any notes from those positions !Try to combine them together and turn them into short licks!
I would like to hear what you can come up with before I will give you examples!
Let me know if you need help or have any questions!

You did an amazing job! I like your take! Very nice playing!
Can you actually do audio recording? I am asking because my next assignment will depend on it!
