1) Duets, well the mean music for 2 guitars or otherçs instruments.
2) Common mistakes. Are lesson about technical or musical mistakes that makes our songs dont sound so good or make our body be in pain for example sloppy rythm with the duration of the notes, uncontroled bending or vibrato that makes intonation go bad, hold the guitar in a unconfortable way, etc. There should be some talking explaining the mistake and some excercise to correct them.

The second suggestion sounds nice for me,
to show how NOT to play certain things and then corrected version,I like that.

Only,that kind of lesson would change a structure a bit,
it won't be a music piece,backing tracks would be pointless and slow videos,
well...let me show you this HORRIBLE(sheep style) vibrato,slowly biggrin.gif

Anyhow,it might be good idea,lets see what rest of the crew has to say. smile.gif

Duets can be nice...Maybe...I don't really understand how to record that lesson, with two screens or...?

One way to point at some mistakes is to get hand on collaboration material (of course we have to let the user who made the mistake anonimous, and also where is the colaboration named), or other think is to encourage members to post in the forum their solos, or their version of actual lessons. I think that´s is feasible instructors that made the lesson or started the collab with the "mistake" should have priority to do this kind of lesson.

Great idea!! To show sloppy rhythm, bad string dampening, sloppy bending. I think examples like that can get people to react to their own bad technique by recognising themselves.

Instructors could record it first sloppy and then show the right technique, so there's a vivible differece.


Good luck playing sloppy and out of rhythm. That could be quite difficult to break the habit of playing correctly. wink.gif

Like muris says, I think this needs quite a bit of planning - but after that I think this can come out as a really good lesson and eye opener.
