> 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,
thanks for the thread and keeping me motivated.

Right now I am working on:

Alternate Picking Workout #2
Timing Exercise

My main goal is to get my right hand motion down to one motion for all notes instead of different motions for different note durations. Furthermore I would like to improve my timing.

For fun I am also working on this one:

Megadeth Made Easy

Hope to share some recordings with you soon.

Hey Gabriel,

what would you recommend. Go for a new lesson (Alt Picking #3) or work on the two lessons I already recorded?

Hi mate, I recommend working on the new lesson but playing the previous ones some times every day to keep polishing them. Does it sound good?

Hey, I am back after the summer break and motivated to keep progressing.
I did a quick recording of Alternate Picking Workout 2 and posted in in REC. I want to continue work on my alternate and maybe some vibrato.
I think
Alternate-picking-workout-3
neoclassical_solo_for_beginners
both sound nice.
I will post some progress videos as soon as possible.

Yes, how do I get rid of that extra motion? biggrin.gif
Maybe I will try playing in front of a mirror.

Yeah! A mirror can help! Work at slow tempos, and use this lesson: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Picking-Hand-Basics/

On one string it is working fine. The problem with the extra movement starts when I include string skipping.

I made some quick videos for you to judge what I am doing. I kinda ignored the metronome at some times wink.gif

Hi Josh, thanks for the videos!

The single string one looks good for me. The crossing strings one is better, but I still see some extra rotation that could be diminished. I would try working at slower tempos to be able to adjust that movement. What do you think?
