> HEY MAN, I really need your help...

...the thing is, I need you to start progressing faster then ever, but to achieve that I need your help:

* Don't know where to start? Just pm me and we will sort it out directly, I am online every day.

* Join My Army. Sounds aggressive? It is! We can study anything from the most fearsome picking techniques to bombastic songwriting. A medal of honor awaits the brave. Seriously, this is an opportunity for you to get a personalised learning experience...what are you waiting for?!

* Join my next video chat! GMC startpage holds a video chat schedule. We always cover a lot of ground and have fun. Remember that you don't need any previous knowledge, and you can be passive in the chat.

* Jam with me - you will find active collabs here.

* Post a topic on this board, guitar related or not - doesn't matter! You will find that chatting with instructors boosts your motivation to practice.

* You haven't missed my latest video lessons, have you?

* Finally I want to tell you a secret. Nah I changed my mind - pm me instead ;)

Hi mate! You can start with this one but before I give you a new routine, I need to see your vids playing the current routine.

Hi Siya!! Great to see all your videos here!!

I have to say that most of the parts sounds very good. The rhythm and picking arpeggios lessons are the ones that sound better. I just think that you can work on the part that you change to B and Bm in the picking arpeggios one to make it sound smoother.

Picking Hand Basics: There is one of the rhythm patterns (starting at 00:30) that is different compared to the original. Check it out. Besides this, you can work a bit more to adjust timing along the whole lesson, and also pay some attention to dynamics. Notice how the first note of each group of 4 16th notes, or 3 triplets is a bit accentuated.

Land of legato: It sounds good. There is some room to adjust timing and to make your fingers feel more comfortable with the shapes and movements. I notice that you are doing too much strength and pressure. Try to minimize strength and movements and relax your left hand. It will help a lot.

During the next week I recommend this routine:

Warming up:

Stretches & Massages: https://youtu.be/1XsLRQFV7rY
https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Warmin...Finger-Fitness/

Left hand:
https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Bens-Land-Of-Legato-2/

Phrasing:

Rhythm:
