Hello Ivan,

I Arun, am a student from Asia.

Lately, I have been playing simple solos and riffs of music composed by bands like Led Zepplin (like Stairway to heaven) which are primarily blues based (in a way that they exhaustively make use of the pentatonic and blues scales) . Based on this, I had assumed that my playing fell under the intermediate level. In an attempt to gain some control and the feel of the blues I started practicing the 'Blues soloing intermediate lesson' posted by you.

In the lesson, I'm facing some difficulties in the following areas:

1) First of, I am not able to gain enough sustain between the notes, so the basic feel you produce while playing the licks is lost. By the way, I don't use a delay. Do you use one? Do you think I should use one?

2) Secondly, while playing licks which contain grouped notes, for example in the very first lick of that lesson, I tend to lose control of the lick immediately after I play those grouped notes. By grouped notes, I mean notes on different strings played together and sometimes bent together.

As I don't have a video camera, I'm unable to post a video of my playing. However, I could upload an audio file of the licks I'm facing difficulty in, if you feel that my query is not clear enough.

Thanks for your time,

Hey guys,

I'm new to the GMC community and would like to introduce my self.

I'm Arun from Asia. I started out as a western classical pianist and lately, I've been playing the guitar as well. Currently, I own a Yamaha C-40 classical guitar and an ESP EC-100 QM electric guitar.

As far as musical genres go, I enjoy the blues and also neo-classical(the yngwie stuff) and melodic metal (like COB and Dimmu Borgir). I am looking forward to an enjoyable experience here at GMC.
