> 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 ;)

[font=Comic Sans Ms]Hi, I'm a new member here. Your lessons really caught my attention so I decided to join in and I can say that you're really good.
There's 1 thing that I want to know since you're in a band.
How do you compose a song? I tried but I'm not sure if I'm doing it right. Most of the time, I just play whatever as long as it sounds good.
I wanna know if there are certain rules that I have to follow? I've heard something with circle of fifth
and I have to follow the scales not just throw in random notes.
Yup that's all
Hope you can help me with this biggrin.gif and thanks

Hi Man! Thank you! The best way to begin to compose is analizy the bands and songs that you like. The chords that they use, the different combinations of them, the mode that they use and the structure of the songs. Then with all those different things wrote in a paper start doing your own variations. In the begining you'll compose songs that you don't like or that sounds like others but with some practice you'll compose great songs.

cheers.
