A little background informations:

I began playing guitar when I was 9 years old. In the beginning I had no teacher. I learned by watching instructional videos and looking for info on the Internet. When I was about 12 I took lessons for about 2 years with a private instructor, but I didn't learn that much.

Today I've been playing for almost 9 years and feel like I should be much better than I am. I think with proper guidance I can improve a lot faster.


Music that i like:

I like modern blues, rock, metal, progressive metal, experimental, old 70s and 80s rock, some jazza, and other genres.


Influences:

Guthrie Govan
Paul Gilbert
Steve Vai
Slash
Gary Moore
Zack Wylde
Joe Satriani
Eric Johnson
Jimmi Hendrix

Favourite songs:

Guthrie Govan - Wonderful Slippery Thing (Album Version)
Eric Johnson - Cliffs of Dover
Steve Vai - Tender Surrender
Jimmi Hendrix - Foxy Lady
Jimmi Hendrix - Purple Haze

Goals:

- Improve my Phrasing
- Follow chord changes when improvising unsure.gif
- Knowing how a note in the fretboard is going to sound before playing it (Ear Training)
- Learn to Transcribe Songs
- Build Chord Knowledge
- Become a good Improviser

Weaknesses:

- Fretboard knowledge
- Improvisation outside of a couple of boxes
- Being aware of the harmony in a song while improvising
- Timing (not too bad in common time signatures and moderate tempos)

Hi, I want to buy a cheap 7-string guitar that is below $450 dlls. I've never had a 7-string so I just want something I can mess around with.

I found two options: Dean Vendetta VNXM and Ibanez RG7321.

The Vendetta is $200 and the RG is $400. If I bought the Vendetta I could spend the extra $200 on getting some decent pickups.

What would you recommend me?

Thanks,
Mario

Hi guys,

This is my first attempt ever to write a song. I've been studying theory to know what works and what doesn't and I think there's been progress in my playing.

Now, the song... I think I have the right concept in my mind but haven't been able to put it on actual music. I would greatly appreciate if you guys could give me some feedback, suggestions, or anything that could help me.


Thanks!

Hi Pavel, I've been practicing sweep picking for a week now, and I know it's VERY little time but if you could track my progress and give me your opinion it'd be great.

Can I upload a track every few weeks so you can listen to it?

I don't know, I think it helps me commit to practice if someone else notices my progress.

This is my first recording at 55 bpm 6 notes each beat. I feel I'm doing ok since a week ago was the first time I sweeped in my life. blink.gif

Thanks!

- Mario

Edit:

Oh! I forgot to mention I'm sweeping with the bridge pickup. I figured if I can sweep cleanly with that one, then the neck pickup would be a lot easier. Do you think I should continue doing this?

I want to buy a new guitar. I was looking at different options and found this one: http://www.guitarcenter.com/shop/product/b...ku=519391%2e866

I don't have much money to spend, about 600 dlls. The music I like to play is blues, rock, and some metal. Is this a good option?

Do you recommend me something else?

Thanks,
Mario.

P.S. I specially like slash's sound. smile.gif
