Hello everyone,
it has been 10 years since I last posted here. I wish I could say I now have 10 years of guitar experience but that's sadly not the case. In the past years, I played a bit but no serious practice. I don't think I ever learned a complete GMC lesson at the time I was here. I renewed my subscription this month and already learned 3 beginner lessons. So there is some progress now smile.gif
I started with the Paradise Lost Lesson and the Metallica made easy by Gabriel.

At the moment my main problems are:
-Timing (Dotted notes still don't feel natural to me). Also when phrases start on an odd beat like 4+
-Lack of Music theory (Don't know any scales yet beside the a minor pentetonic)
-No musical ear

The GMC lessons I learned already helped a bit with the first point but timing is still always an issue with more complex phrases.
I also looked into learning music theory.

Thanks for the recommendation this has been quite a frustrating app for me in the last day laugh.gif
Some of these intervals sounds so similar to me. I need more work on this.

I worked my way up to 100% with the common note set, I'm now on the first section without common notes, ascending minor and major seconds, I can't get more than 80%, it's a great app though smile.gif
