> 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 ;)

Hello Gabriel! First of all I want to thank you for this nice lesson. I have started practicing it and I really love it, but there is one spot where I got a problem and want to ask you for tips.

That is the stretch you are doing from fifth to third fret. When I attempt to do it while playing, my pinky hurts and I feel the whole wrist has a bad tension. sad.gif I've watched the video many times to have the hand placed as precised as I could, but that way I feel tension. I have to hold guitar like classical one to manage the stretch. Maybe you could give me any helpful tip(s) how to improve my stretch not hurting the hand itself (yeah im pretty weak in stretches).

Overall the lesson is great! I can play any other parts at 95bpm with no problem. I'm already playing it over and over again.

Thanks in advance.

It doesn't matter how much time you spend if you don't know the correct things to do, and the correct way of doing those things. Fifteen minutes of correct practice will do you more good, than 5 hours of incorrect, unintelligent practice. Bad practice just makes you better at playing badly!

Hello Flanger! I'm glad that you like this lesson! You have to be carefull when you are practicing this type of stretch when you are practicing. I suggest you to traspose that position to the 12th fret and play the chord.. then move it one fret down and then other. Practicing this every day will make you feel more confortable with it. You you feel that your hand hurts stop and relax for a while.

gabriel.-
