Hello Gabriel!
It's going to be difficult today, I'll try tomorrow!
What about the analysis, is everything okay?
Thank you!

Hello Gabriel!
Sorry, when I edited the image in the paint I cut the author. This is my last recording for the rec program, it's Lian Gerbino's music - Melodic Black Metal: Naglfar.

Hi Carlos, I've read your analysis while listening to the lesson and everything is correct. I've really enjoyed your description, it's very clear. Great job mate!

Hello Gabriel!
Here is the analysis of the music Gateways of Dimmu Borgir!
It took me some time to analyze this!
They are always modulating from one section to another, please check if everything is right and I would like to know if there are any kind of modulating cadences here, because the transitions sound really good ....
Thank you!

Hi Carlos, what a killer song!!! I don't listen to this style very often but I'm always amazed of Dimu Borgir overall production. They are coming to Buenos Aires soon so I'll have to go. biggrin.gif

I've done a quick check and it seems that your analysis is good. Let me know if you have any specific question about it.

Regarding modulation, in this cases, it's usually a "jump" from one key to the other, mostly to generate an impact in the listener. If you like the effects that they create I recommend you to check the distance between one key and the other (you can use intervals to measure the distance).

Hello again Gabriel!
Yes, Dimmu Borgir is simply amazing, it's a shame they did not come to Portugal for so many years, I've never seen them live and they're from my favorite bands ....
The part that is smeared yellow at the end of the first part, I think it's the cadence that does the modulation. I know that composers often do not think about theory when they are composing and then other musicians try to find a way to explain music from a theoretical point of view! Although I can adapt (analyzing the intervals as you said) to a song of mine , for me it becomes clearer when I perceive the theory behind the music.
I've heard of chords like the N6, It6 +, Fr6 + and Ger6 +, I know how they form but I've never actually used them in a song, at least consciously, and sometimes when I'm analyzing songs where I do not understand where these modulations come to think that maybe it is the use of some chord of these or others that I do not know.


By the way, I'd like to tell you that I'm still working on the excercises you sent me right back to the GMC. At the moment I stopped doing almost everything I was doing and concentrated only on the Alternate Picking exercise to try to reach the desired speed once and for all but it is not easy.
I think these exercises are a few steps above my current level of ability and I'm actually starting to get a little frustrated.
I will continue to practice the AP exercise for some more time to see if I get there, but if I do not get it in a while I think we should reformulate our approach and try to do this in a more gradual way.

Cheers!!

Hi mate!

Yes, that's exactly what I recommend doing when analyzing music, and even more when it's as complex as this tune. It's great to know that you are already using the elements learnt from the different songs worked here. This will have a killer impact in your compositions!

About Alternate Picking, could you please share a new video playing the exercises?

Hello Gabriel!
I'm only working on the fastest part of the AP exercise, the part where you have 16th note triplets! I will continue to work on this part for a little longer to try to reach 110 BPM. I already posted some videos of this exercise for you to see and correct, at the last you said that I was doing everything well and that it was a matter of practicing that I will eventually get there.
Being always recording videos I also lose my time so I will try to achieve the goal ....
Cheers and thanks for the feedback!

Hello Gabriel!
Since I was not achieving the desired speed in the exercises you gave me, I decided to take a few more accessible exercises.
I do not like to leave things in the middle but I was becoming unmotivated. We have a lot of exercises here at the GMC for all degrees of difficulty and I believe the key to staying motivated is to take on exercises that are challenging but tangible.
I hope there's no problem for you.
Here is the AP exercise.
I'm going to post in the rec program as well, feel free to make your comments wherever you want!
Cheers

Hi Carlos!

Sure! The main goal here is to stay motivated so well done mate. smile.gif

This take is flawless. Your playing is precise, tight and everything sounds clean and clear. Your hands movements are also very good so everything is perfect here. You are ready for a new / more advanced take!

Congrats mate!
