Original lesson: Melodic Satch by Ben Higgins

Hey guys! I'm back with a new take. Overall I thought it was an okay take. Timing was off in some spots and I was not able to hit some pinch harmonics that I wanted, Hopefully you guys still enjoy it. Hope everyone had a great holiday and looking forward to the new year!

Original lesson: Beginner Solo in D by Muris Varajic

Here's a new take from me! Thanks to all the instructors for the constructive feedback a few days ago. I took it seriously and really tried to implement changes. Unfortunately I have yet to perfect the sweep lick and it is still sloppy. I am still facing difficulties reaching the 12th fret consistently. Aside from that I felt pretty good about everything else. I did try to add a bit more emotion and confidence to this take. I hope you guys can hear an improvement. I am working hard to become a better player and enjoy being a member of this community. Thanks again!

Original lesson: Beginner Solo in D by Muris Varajic

Here's my submission to Beginner Solo in D. I'm not particularly happy with the take, but I had the itch to post it because of some new video recording equipment! Thank you for the feedback.

Hi everyone!

This is my first post on GMC and I wanted to introduce myself. The primary reason I joined is due how active and passionate everyone seemed to be. It seems like a great opportunity and experience for me to learn!

I've been a fairly competitive video game player and serious computer techie for as long as I can remember. I've always loved the guitar and eventually got my first one 2 or 3 years ago but never really practiced or dedicated myself to the art. Going through a couple of different changes I've gotten more serious about it 7 months ago. So if anyone asks I usually say I've been playing for about a year. I'm always looking for ways to improve!

My favorite artists include Jack Thammarat, Vinai Trinateepakdee and a2c. For whatever reason I particularly enjoy emotional instrumental rock. I also enjoy a lot of things I hear from Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Paul Gilbert, Eddie Van Halen, and Greg Howe.

I've been having a good time practicing and learning the past year, but I find two particular areas stressful while playing.

Musical theory is something I've been briefly taught by someone online and it's something I have a hard time retain because it's not something I feel I use on a daily basis. I enjoy covering songs and whatever techniques I've picked up have been trained through that. I tend to play a lot of things by ear unless accurate tabs are available.

Speed also destroys me. I'm not looking to be a speed demon of any sort, but I love guitar solos and would love to be able to play some of the faster things I enjoy. Good examples are the solos from Jump by Van Halen or The Final Countdown by Europe. I believe I use what they call economy style picking. For the most part I incorporate alternate picking but not on everything I do. Just whatever feels natural or "economical".

All of my experience comes from just playing things I enjoy listening to. I don't have particular knowledge of the chords, scales, shapes, or modes. I kind of know what they are just from some small talk and research.

I want to know if this is this a poor way to learn the guitar. I don't want to be handicapping myself, but another discussion with a friend lead me to believe that there is no wrong way. As long as I continue to play and practice that I can eventually get to where I want.

Here are some samples of things I've recorded recently to give representation to where I'm at right now.

I'm using an Ibanez RG20064 equipped with Seymour Duncan TB-4 JB on the bridge and SH-1 59 on the neck. A Line 6 audio interface is being used for Amp modeling (Reaper DAW w/ Amplitube 3) and it's hooked directly to JBL LSR305 monitor speakers.

I've found it particularly difficult to find friends online that I can talk to about guitars. When it came to computers or games, I always had people to discuss things with which made the whole process a lot easier. I'm glad to have found GMC and I trust I can get good feedback here.

Thanks so much,
