Hello Lixxx!!!! I am glad you have decided to join my mentoring program!
I know you explained one of your goals in PM but I still would like you to answer more questions before we will start!
Here they are!
-What is your weakness?
-What is your strongest point?
-Your favorite guitar players?
I am looking forward to work with you! And very excited to guide you through!!!!
Hey Alex thx for taking care of me xD.
First of I need to clarify that Im right-handed sorry for the confusion there.
Allright as I said my weakness is definitely coordination between hands. I also seem to rush things when in fact I might not be rdy to go on ( For instance when training with a metronome I tend to go up quite fast not noticing any mistakes I might have made on slower tempos. In general my one big weakness is my dedication to achive a certain level of mastering this Instrument. Its the only thing I kept doing over the years and I hated myself for not being more disciplined when i started playing. I sometimes tend to push myself into frustration to the point where I dont like to play anymore.
That is somehow a strong point too because I am generally motivated to push my limits.
For my goals:
I want to be able to grasp my fretboard and to play musically and free on the guitar.
Id like to be able to play at decent speed and Improvise over a variety of musical styles
I want to learn about Songwriting and chord changes especially in regard to the modes. I know quite a few but I dont know how to make a mode specific song.
My favorite Guitarists and Musicians are:
ACDC for being an amazing Rockband with very impressive rhythm playing.
Steve Vai for beeing just insanely versed on the guitar. I dont necessarily like all his music but he still is a master.
BB King well I started with Blues and played to his Songs a lot.
Almost everything from 80s Hairmetal its just such a powerful music and I love the style and feel of it very much ( The band Im forming will be a Glam Rock / Hair Metal band ).
All right, so much for a short answer xD.
PS:A Dark Souls Blues
Its something I recorded on a JM4 2 or 3 years ago. It has some serious timing flaws and I completely forgot how to play it xD.
Just so you get an Impression of my playing. I have a video of me doing canon rock as well but I dont have a youtube account yet.
