Are we really going to do such fast soloing over such a slow, emotional kinda backing track ?

I use a metronome at different tempos and that backing track. The idea is that you play it over the metronome with me, I start with slow note values, and then increase the speed. If the speed is too high you can keep playing at the slower tempo.

FRIDAY AUGUST 17th - VCHAT LESSON NOTES

Hi guys! In this session I will show and give tips to compose a metal song using a multitrack software (Nuendo) and some VSTi. First, I will ask the students online for some suggestions of metal bands that will be used as the inspiration of the track. We will choose one band, analyze their most popular songs and try to create something based on them. This is the first time that I do a session like this one so let's experiment! and please give me all the feedback that could help to make the session cool. smile.gif

You can start suggesting bands here!

See you at the Chat Room! wink.gif

EDIT: We chose the band Avenged Sevenfold and after analyzing "Afterlife" and "Nightmare" I composed this riff that would be the verse of the song.

FRI AUGUST 30th - VCHAT LESSON NOTES

Hello guys! In this session we will talk about Composition but in a different way compared to traditional books. We will analyze around 3 songs of a band to understand the concepts that they use to create their music and then we will try to create an idea based on this concepts. My idea is to show you how I create my "in the style of..." lessons and how I get influence and inspiration from the bands that I like.

The topics that we will have in mind to understand their music are:

- Song Structure
- Chord Progressions
- Scales used for Vocal Melodies
- Scales used for solos
- Arrangements


The first band that we will cover is Foo Fighters. The songs that we will have in mind are "Everlong", "Hero", "Wheels" and "Walk".

I won't be teaching how to play the songs, there are lots of tabs out there, I will help you to understand how these ones are composed.

FRI NOVEMBER 15th - VCHAT LESSON NOTES

Hello guys! This month we will start working on Guitar Routines. I'm already doing this work with some guys at Gab's Army so the idea is to invite everybody to practice this routine with me at the Chat-room and ask all the questions that you need. I will play the exercises slowly and at tempo over metronome and also will be able to see you streaming to give feedback and check if you are playing the exercises in the right way.

As I do with my Army, I will took my favourite licks and exercises from other instructors and my GMC lessons. I will update the routines from week to week if I consider it necessary. The idea is that you keep on playing this routines every day.

AUGUST VCHATS LESSON NOTES

Hello guys! In these series of sessions we will explore new territories beyond the Pentatonic minor scale. We will work on triads, chromatic notes, arpeggios, polychords and modes to explore different ways to approach an A minor backing track.

These are some of the scales and arpeggios that I'll cover:

A Pentatonic minor + passing notes

Am arpeggio

Am 7th/9th arpeggio

http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/scalegenerator


Cmaj 7th/9th arpeggio

http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/scalegenerator


Em 7th/9th arpeggio

A Aeolian mode

IMPROVISATION COURSE - FROM ZERO TO HERO -

Hello guys! In the next Vchat sessions I will be giving a improvisation course starting from the basics but that will be cover very advanced stuff. If you are a beginner and you've never experimented with scales, this is your opportunity to get into improvisation. If you are an intermediate that haven't gone deeply into this topic, these series are also for you! Here I will shared all the material needed to understand and follow the course. All the explanations will be done during the Vchat session or at Gab's Army (If you want to have a mentoring thread with me).
