Full Version: Introduce Yourself & Get 15 Riffs!
GMC Forum > Discussion Boards > PRACTICE ROOM
Kristofer Dahl
There are many GMC users lurking around the GMC lesson archive, without really benefitting from all the knowledge in the forum.

Since all GMC community members say the same thing: "In the forum is where progress & learning really happens" - we decided to prepare a little something for all incognito GMC:ers out there:





Introduce yourself NOW - and get 15, handpicked, exclusive KILLER riffs sent to you!

(includes 15 fast/slow videos, guitar pro tab, backing track, scale charts and text explanations)






Here is how:

1 Click here.
2 Fill in the topic title and write your introduction post
(Inspiration : Something short about yourself. What gear do you have? How long have you been playing? Which styles of music do you like? Your musical goals for the future...)
3 Click "Post New Topic" at the bottom of the page

Then send us an email to: i-ve-introduced-myself@guitarmasterclass.net

P.S. Are you already active in the forum and want to get access to the riffs as well? No worries - just post a new topic telling us about your 'guitar story': How long have you been practicing with GMC? What has been most helpful to you on GMC?
Then send an email to: i-ve-introduced-myself@guitarmasterclass.net (active subscription required)

Hello folks,

i was away for long time. My first Name is Andrei. Currently i am playing in a band called
Alien To The System. I have
a lot of guitars, but my main guitar is an Agile 8 String right now. I would like to get my chops
up to the next level, learn more about composing and do a better job when we are recording
our next album. I hope the subscription to GMC gives me some motivation, which i used to
have and i can finally start to shred a little biggrin.gif

I wish you all some heavy Christmas and big Hello to all the great people around here! smile.gif

Hey Andrei - welcome to GMC! smile.gif
Please check your email for 15 killer licks.

Great to hear you are motivated to work on your guitar playing and composing.
Please feel free to let me know if you need any help with any specifics?

See you around the forum.

Merry Christmas,
Bogdan

Hey Andrei - are you from Romania, by any chance? smile.gif I would be delighted to help out with anything you might have to ask and I could also provide the support in our common language if that be the case smile.gif What are your favorite techniques and which artists do you like listening to?

@Bodgdan
Thanks, i am fine at the moment, but maybe i come back at you later. Thanks for your great Bass lessons btw! smile.gif

@Cosmin Lupu
Hey, sorry but i am originally from Russia, but i am living in Germany now. My former bandmate originates from Romania! I am very interested in modern progressive Metal like TesseracT, Animals as Leaders and so on. I watched your Lesson about Tesseract - thats killer man! I will try to learn it. Are there specific lessons for 8 String Guitars on GMC? Currently i am trying to develop my riffing in odd signatures, get some sweep picking going and increase my overall speed. I will definitely appreciate any help in this regard. In the moment i am working on the "In Flames Style" Lesson of Gabriel to get me going biggrin.gif

Great to be here, you guys are an inspiration!
Cosmin Lupu
Hey buddy!

Glad to know you like these bands - I am HUGE Tesseract fan and I am wearing a Tesseract T-shirt just as I am writing this tongue.gif

I don't think there are any 8 strings lessons here on GMC, but there are certainly 7 string lessons and baritone/low tuning lessons which you can surely benefit from - check these out to begin with:

http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/solo-guit...-modes-3-notes/
http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/solo-guit...or-scale-CAGED/
http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/seven-...weep-arpeggios/

Odd signature based lessons:

http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/odd-riffing/
http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/rhythm-guitar/odd-grooves/

... and if you would like to take things a bit further and working together, around a personalized plan sounds like a good idea to you, please check out this thread: http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_fo...t=0&start=0 smile.gif Looking forward to receiving the answers to these questions which will most likely help me, help you smile.gif

Welcome Nick!

What sort of styles and techniques and artists do you prefer? smile.gif The more you will tell us, the more we will be able to help you out!

I just started my subscription after many years of watching your sample/ free videos.

I am 42 and have been playing since I was about 16. I seem to get very involved in guitar playing for 3-5 years then stop due to one thing or another. I came back to it about 4 years ago after a hiatus of a few yars and have began to play at a level I have never since reached. I think this is due in part to the internet and all the options/styles so easily at one' disposal. I've jumped around from genres all my life and am currently in love with technical death metal, prog metal, neo-classical, Bach, and soul jazz (Melvin Sparks, George Benson, and of course GRANT GREEN). So, I would like to see more lessons concerning this style and less concentrating on the shitty bands from the 80s and 90s. The metal that is being made now is far superior to the metal I listened to when I was a teenager.

Please give us more lessons on the styles of Necrophagist, Nile, Animals as Leaders, Scale the Summit, Obscura, Robert Fripp, Adrian Belew, 2-handed tapping for rhythms, Gojira, and Cynic. Less blues lessons! Nearly all the lesson sites online have a gazillion lessons on the blues already. The death metal lessons you do have already are awesome along with the lessons concentrating on styles that are adjacent to particular parts of the world, for instance, Brazilian Fusion.

I have seen a lot of great videos on sweep picking, but not so much on Sweep Picking Mechanics. For example, what technique will give me the fastest and cleanest results? I dislike the lessons where the instructor just plays the lesson without explaining any of the theory or mechanics of the riff/lick, etc.

I also love that on this site I can upload what I am working on and see what others are working on. I wish you would present this aspect on the front page of the website and maybe once a week feature either a recording or video by a student. I think it would also be ideal for the site for more of the instructors to be more brash with their personalities to help reveal to the world how awesome this site is. I have found no where else on-line that promotes such extreme styles of music.

(The site as a whole probably needs a design overhaul, but that's just my opinion.)

Oh yeah, love the Hone Your Tone segment in the forums. Being an older guy than the rest of you, one of my challenges recently is learning to use my laptop as a "recording studio." I'm constantly blown away by great sounding recordings made by guitarists from their laptop.
Gabriel Leopardi
Hi mate! Welcome to GMC!! Thanks for all your suggestions, request and comments regarding the site and our work here. We are permanently working to make things better so these kind of feedback it totally welcome!

I hope that you enjoy the site. Let me know if you need any help with your practice or setting up your recording home studio!

Kristofer Dahl
Thanks a lot of the detailed feedback clashchords!

Right now we are a little bit lost in a site overhaul which has been going on for two years. The goal is to relaunch everything on a new technical platform which will allow us to add new functionalities (and improve the current ones). Unfortunately it has been delayed in ways I had not foreseen and development of the live site has been suffering because of this delay.

Having said this - there are still things we can change without waiting for the new platform. For example community activities and lesson direction, so once again feedback is very appreciated.

I don't udnerstand this - it sounds interesting though, what do you want us to do with our personalities? cool.gif

I think this is a very good suggestion, we should be much better at lifting forward our amazing students. Watch this space.
