> 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 ;)

Hey Gabriel! Happy new year biggrin.gif

I have to give a word of warning first; I might have to drop out of GMC for a period during winter/spring 2021, as I have some other stuff going on that will require more time than before, but I`ll try a couple of weeks and see how much time I`m able to spend here. The 1 on 1 with you, as well as the feedback from several instructors on REC is super valuable to me, but at some point, I might have to reconsider if I can`t give any input here myself.



Hi mate!! Happy New Year! Thanks for the update! Even if we don't see you here, I hope that you can keep your guitar practice during this period of time. smile.gif

Now, that out of the way: Right hand technique!

I have gotten the comment so many times now regarding much movement with my right hand, but I can`t seem to figure out how to change it. I see that other people move their hands less, and their hand seems almost perpendicular to the strings, but I can`t figure how they are hitting the strings then, without the pick being perpendicular as well.

Any insight or recommended lessons/exercises I can try? For some reason, I do want to play more extreme stuff in the time ahead, and I realize my right hand will be a bottleneck. Turning 30 soon, I think metal are like drugs: You either stop with it, or just keeping going heavy biggrin.gif (not that I do drugs, but I find the comparison amusing).



I'm re-checking your Pantera lesson take while reading this. It's true that your hand movement could be smaller, and I think that this could be the cause of the small timing thing that Kris marked in his comment. The motion is not bad, I don't think that you need to change the angle, you just need to continue practicing until you get used to a smaller movement. There two comments that I'd like to share about this:

- Practicing at slower tempos can help you to force the smaller movement and get used to it.
- Practicing at an uncomfortable fast tempo can also help to get used to a very small movement.

This comments seem to be contradictory but what I get from them is that we need to practice over and below our comfortable tempo if we want to polish our technique. Does it make sense?

Hi! Your previous comment makes perfect sense, and I`ll bring that along with me. I`ll also try to participate in the forum, even though me replying here after 4 weeks is not a good sign mellow.gif

I need to pause my subscription now, as I`ll have to prioritize my two bands and writing in the time going forward. Also, I`m stoked to start rediscovering my motivation for playing guitar again, and learning more songs - not just lessons, which I`ve done far too much the last year. Not that lessons don`t help, but the amount of new songs I`ve learned from 2013-2019 is quite embarassing tongue.gif

I hope to return in not too long, when I have the time, as this 1-on-1 and the feedback from the RECs are super helpful! Thanks for all of your advice thus far smile.gif

Hi mate! Nice to hear from you! smile.gif

Your plans sound good to me. This place is always open to monitor your progress, ask questions or share your work on progress. It's nice to know that you'll be focusing on compositions for your bands. If you need any help with it here am too.

Regarding motivation, I don't think that you are not motivated since you are playing in two bands and working on new music. Maybe it's not a practice (or learn new things) period, maybe it's time to apply everything you've learnt and discover which things you don't know (and need) to set them as future goals. Don't you think so?
