> 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 Ybritt! Welcome to your thread for Gab's Army, my mentoring program. Here I will guide you with your guitar practice, creating routines, practice plans, giving feedback of your playing always based on your guitar goals and musical tastes.

Before we start I would like to know a bit more about you.


- How many time have you been playing guitar?
- Favorite guitarists, bands and musicians.
- What are your guitar goals?
- How would you like to you see yourself in 5 years (related to music and guitar)?
- How many time can you play guitar each day?
- Do you have playing live experience?
- Which are your strong and weak points with guitar?
- What do you know about music theory?
- Can you record videos of you playing?
- Share here audios and videos that reflect your current playing.

Hi mate! Great to find news from you!! smile.gif

Thanks for you update regarding your practice sessions.

That legato lesson is sounding good. I just have these thoughts:

- Try to decrease the strength then doing hammer ons, and maybe when you play the whole lesson. Please check out THIS VIDEO.

- Timing is not precise yet. It's not regular on each pattern. Just take care of it.


Regarding bending. The best is to be able to bend with any finger, in any fret, and reaching different intervals. That's why I recommend the first exercise from THIS VIDEO for diary practice (at least 3 minutes). Does this answer your question?

Thanks Gab! It does answer my question.

I appreciate your feedback. All those things I haven’t paid attention to over the years. The video about tension was very interesting and I will work on that too.

Another thing I have thought about, when I see videos of people playing fast, is that they keep their fingers on the fretting hand very close to the fretboard and moves them with a minimum of effort. Myself, I have realised that my fretting fingers move quite a lot to and from them fretting board when I play. Seems like I can’t continue doing this if I want to increase the speed in my playing. But one thing at the time maybe...

Cheers!
