I am looking forward to start working with you!!!!




My goal is to be able to create and master lead and rhythm
I want to learn More scales and learn the ones I know in more depth
and learn how to apply what I learn
I want to learn Metal/Rock Rhythm Riffs and learn how to write a back track

I dont understand the order to give chords their names or what ones to use and the arrangement to put them in
for the type of music Im trying to create also I dont play any songs all the way through I just know parts

Strong Points, Browse my site at http://draziw.webs.com/ I have created links about me, One shows My Knowledge on
scales, chords and the wheel of fifths, another shows videos of me and videos I like, another is music I have recorded by my self as well
as with friends and the last one I will mention is the sites I learn from, also I know that the 1st 3rd and 5th make up the major Chord


I learn most from Metallica, other bands are Lynyrd Skynyrd, Shadows Fall, All that Remains, Deep Purple, Ozzy, Nirvana,Pink Floyd,
Credence Clear Water, POD, 3 Doors Down and a lot others

I found some arpeggios in the key of E Harmonic Minor and a friend showed me how to get the scale and chords out of it,
and then said we should write a song using this scale
Alex Feather
Awesome! How about we will start with an exercise that will develop your technique and timing! It's a very cool exercise that will help you a lot!
Make sure to practice it using a metronome at a very slow tempo!

You did a very good job! I would like you to add those exercises into your warming up routine!
Also I think you can slow down a little bit and really play every note with a right dynamic and tone!In the mean time I will work on a scale assignment for you!
Bas Cuthach
Looking forward to the scale assignment, is there a lesson I can work on while I wait smile.gif
Alex Feather
Awesome! Here is a very cool scale exercise! It is a G major scale but it has very interesting shapes that will get stuck in your head much faster! Make sure to practice it slow using a metronome!

You did a very good job! I can see a few mistakes! First of all your right hand is very tight up and it looks like you are using your index finger as well? I think loosing up and make movements up and down without using index finger will help a lot!
Also I can suggest to practice it at a slower tempo it's a mechanical exercise and slower you do it better results you will get!
You are on the right track just slow down a bit and make sure you have a full control over your hands!
Let me know if you have any questions!
Bas Cuthach
It does look like Im using my index finger, no I have a pick, this was day 2 of playing it, Im sure with more practice I can do better, Ill give it some more time

I saw that you have a pick, but it seems like your index finger is moving as well when you are picking?
This is a very good exercise that will help you a lot! Also we will start working on more melodic stuff next week! For now I would like you to include this exercise into your warm up routine!
Let me kow if you have any questions!
Bas Cuthach
so you say you know a lot about theory, maybe this is what we should start talking about, I still want to do the exercise's, I will give each one a few days and show you what I have and then you can decide if I need to go up or down, I want to read the GMC Theory Grimoire and I'm sure I will have lots of questions, what your idea on this?

I think it's a wonderful idea!!! I can start explaining you theory right away! And book will help you as well!

A few questions before we will start!
1) Build F major triad
2) Build a D major scale
3) A - B - C - D - E - F# - G What mode is that?
4) How many sharps in E major scale?
Don't worry if you can't answer on some I am just trying to figure out where to start!

1.
2. D E F# G A B C# D
3. G major scale, looked at the wheel of fifths to see witch one had only one sharp and then the A tells me its the second mode making it Dorian, had to use the scale generator to double check that one
4. one shape, the notes are E F# G# A B C# D# E, there are 7 modes and I believe 12 octaves on the fret board, I have 24 frets



I like questions like this, so how did I do?
Bas Cuthach
other answers on last post

1. F A C



4. dont quote that, there are 4 octaves on the guitar, wink.gif



well the open high E is the same as my low E 24th fret

there are 4 sharps in the E Major scale wink.gif

Good job! You got everything right!
I would like to start with a circle of fifths! I know you are probably know it, but I would like to refresh it so we won't have any troubles in the future! I will also explain you numbers, it will make it easier for you to transpose to any key and you will get a better idea of notes relations!
Here it is!
Click to view attachment
This is how you will add sharps and flats to your scales! It call circle of fifths because it goes up in fifths!
We are adding sharps (#) C - G - D - A - E - B - F#
Going down forth adding flats:F - Bb - Eb - Ab - Db - Gb
Here are all the sharps:
F# - C# - G# - D# -A#

Here are all the flats:
Bb - Eb - Ab - Db - Gb - Cb

So if for example we have a D major scale we will have 2 sharps F# and C# Every time a new scale comes up we will be adding one sharp or flat!

Now let me explain the numbers! It's very simple

Each note of the scale will have a number it will make it easier to memorize all the scales/chords and will be able to transpose it to any key!
As an example I will use C major scale

C - I
D - II
E - III
F - IV
G - V
A - VI
B - VII

Let me know when you will go through it so I can give you a melodic assignment based on the circle of fifth!
Bas Cuthach
here is a video I found, Is been a while since I watched it



the wheel of fifths

1 2 3 4 5
C D E F G A B C
______ 1 2 3 4 5
______ G A B C D E F# G
_____________ 1 2 3 4 5
_____________ D E F# G A B C# D

and so on

the note on the inner part of the circle of fifths is the relative minor

a saying to help me remember part of the wheel is "Father Charles Goes Down And Ends Battles"

the modes are - Ionian Dorian Phrygian Lydian Mixolydian Aeolian Locrain

What I play



and



the major scale is built - tone - tone - semi tone - tone - tone - tone - semi tone

Here is my take On the G Major Scale and Dorian Mode



I tell you all this to give an idea of what I know, to better help you understand what I know, if you know what I know then you can help me learn what I dont know and correct me when Im wrong and help me understand why, this is most of what i know about theory
Alex Feather
Wow! Thank you for making it clear for me! You know a lot and it's very good I will keep explaining you new things as we go along!! I think we can start getting into improvisation a little bit more! I think blues would be a good start!
Here is cool blues track in E
http://soundcloud.com/alex-feather-akimov/blues-mentoring
It is a standard I - IV - V progression
so the chords are:
E7 - A7 - B7 - A7
For the first exercise we will do that!
Over E7 Play E minor pentatonic in any position you want
Over A7 I would like you to play A mixolydian in this position

Over B7
B minor blues pentatonic in this position


In a few days we will start a new mentoring approach it will be like a collab but just you and me!
For now I would like you to come up with a first 8 solo bars using backing track and scales I have provided!
Please mix your solo in the track and leave the rest without cutting it so we can start adding parts back and forth!
Let me know if you have any questions or need help!
Bas Cuthach
Sounds Good all thought sound cloud seems to have a problem sad.gif
I will start playing with the scales to get a better feel for them and also

Awesome! So here is my take and a new assignment!
http://soundcloud.com/alex-feather-akimov/bascuthach

I did the first part to give you ideas and would like you to continue my solo using those scales:

Over E7 chord
E minor pentatonic in this position



Over A7
A minor pentatonic in this position



Over B7
B minor pentatonic in this position


Try to be as melodic as possible! This is a good exercise that will help you to start mixing pentatonics and play over the changes!
Let me know if you have any questions or need help!

can you tab out what you played so I can learn it and then build off that? also if you put it in a .gp5 file only, that would work for me, you dont have to tab it out in the forum smile.gif

To tab it would be very difficult because I am jamming and will have to transcribe the whole solo! I am using the same scales and the idea of this type of mentoring to guide you and help you to find your own style of playing!!
You are doing very well and this exercises will help you a lot and you will get progress very very fast!

Hi I just wanted to follow up and see if you are ready for a new assignment!
You have also asked me about Egyptian scales Are you still interested in those?
Bas Cuthach
sorry, its been a busy few weeks with lots of new things happening, things might start getting back on track soon, I do want to learn Egyptian scales, I was wondering if you could give me some licks to play for that last assignment, By the way I Like the name change smile.gif

I thought you changed because you said the thread was updated and I saw "Not everything is ROCK 'N ROLL..."
and thought you changed the name, I see the name is the same biggrin.gif

I have subscribed to this thread so I will see when there is something new
and Im looking forward to learning the licks as I dont know blues licks biggrin.gif

I thought you changed because you said the thread was updated and I saw "Not everything is ROCK 'N ROLL..."
and thought you changed the name, I see the name is the same biggrin.gif

I have subscribed to this thread so I will see when there is something new
and Im looking forward to learning the licks as I dont know blues licks biggrin.gif

Hi! I just wanted to check and see if you have any questions about the licks! Let me know!

Sorry I have not gotten back to you, ever since I took up the band I have been busy learning new songs, once I have them down I can get back to doing this stuff, most the stuff Im learning is chord changes with rhythm and a few licks, plus my friend that asked me to join the band has been teaching me theory, Im starting to get my practice routine back on track, thanks for checking up on me and thanks for telling me to stay with the band wink.gif

Hi! How s your band doing??? Just wanted to follow up and see if you need help with anything? We can work on your solos that you have to play in the band or I can help you arrange some guitar parts! Let me know!

its been a lot of fun, I have learned a lot of new things, the songs are preset and the band leader has been teaching me them and says I sound great and is doing a great job, as this account is paid up till some time next year I would hate to see it go to waste and the miles is eating a hole in my wallet, I have some thinking to do, thanks for stopping by and I hope to get recordings as I still have to learn the licks and do the lessons
