About Me

  • Andrew Chatterton
  • 21
  • Saint John New Brunswick, Canada
  • When I was 19ish
  • Theory knowledge: I know the basics of theory i.e. the notes, what scales are, I know how they are constructed although sometimes I forget the formulas, I know where some of the notes are on the fretboard and can easily find them if I take a second to work it out. Know all the minor pentonic boxes and where the root notes are.
  • ALOT tongue.gifI cant really give you a solid number but more than an hour daily



Your weaknesses

  • Basically Everything
  • Chord progressions
  • Application of known theory
  • Ear training
  • Phrasing
  • Advanced Technique ( String skipping, more than 3 string sweeps)



Your goals (-> what do you want to achieve? techniques,...)

  • I want to be able to arrange and compose effectively
  • take whats in my head and convert it to music
  • not allow physical constraints to hold back my creativity
  • Shred:P
  • increase my chord / scale vocabulary as well as my knowledge of them



here is a vid of me on my brand new guitar I got today, Its not the best as the string gauge is weird and its my first time on the guitar and first time using jazz style picks laugh.gif so honestly its quite a mess tongue.gif Its The Trooper by Iron Maiden. the 5 way selector switch also messes with me as I am used to 3 and having just two humbuckers as opposed to the 3 pickup set up smile.gif

* EDIT I do have guitar pro Tolek tongue.gif

Well, about your playing I don´t have to say anything. It was perfect. smile.gif
Maybe a hint about placing the camera. I personally prefer seeing more the guitar. You can just cut your head (Ouch! laugh.gif) and focus on the guitar because the action is happening there. smile.gif

Edit: I just saw something. Maybe! biggrin.gif Could you please make a little video or picture that shows how you hold the pic? I know that I mentioned it one time, but I wasn´t sure how you were holding it exactly. So, I couldn´t really make a judgement. smile.gif

Thanks. I see that you are holding the pick correctly and your hand position is ok, too. smile.gif

whew , thats relief tongue.gif. I play more normal standing but my camera is on a table and I cant adjust that well to record playing standing. My arms are really long so I kind of play awkard when I have to sit down and play like that.

Sorry. biggrin.gif It´s not bad, but I have not much time and I am pretty powerless. so I can´t give constructive critique. Maybe this weekend I´ll do a video for you. smile.gif
