Hey Ladies,

Long time no see smile.gif I haven't been around much due to work and some personal stuff so I feel a bit out of touch with everyone.

I was just wondering how everyone is doing and how the guitar practice was coming along? I know for myself practice has been non existant the last few weeks but I'm hoping things will slow down a bit in April. I think my Les Paul has filed for divorce actually since I haven't played it in about two weeks. It's a sin really and I should be punished for it biggrin.gif laugh.gif There are so many lessons I want to just dive into, like Gabriel's Foo Fighters lesson for one, so I'm hoping to get back to the grind stone and really get into a regular practice schedule again...hard to do atm since my guitar is home and a 2.5 hr flight away sad.gif I really want to start making posts about my improvements again instead of my lack of practice time.

I also have a PodXt that I've really had no time to play with since I got it. Hope to rectify that too... Andrew the questions may start coming again. tongue.gif I really want to post some versions of my favourite lessons so I can get some feedback about my playing.....which to me should be a lot better then it is. Has anyone else got any new gear? or want any new gear smile.gif ?

Well that's my little update, or lack there of biggrin.gif tongue.gif laugh.gif Hope to hear from ya, see how everyone is progressing.

Hi, rokchik and ladies

I usually begin the practice with Gabriel's 'power metal soloing 2'or 'neoclassical alternatepicking etude' slowly as warming up.
I like a lot of Gabriel's lesson, so I picked up 4 or 5 lessons and practice those on and on every day. I like Muris's 'Bb Minor Phrasing -Beginner' lesson, too. That is new addition to my usual practice.

Sometimes I put ipod on and play something I can along with music, such as 'starlight' (Muse) or 'Dakota' (Stereophonics),etc, etc. Today I was practicing 'Heart in a cage' (the Strokes). That was fun.

I am sorry to hear you couldn't play the guitar for while, but now you got back home ok and I presume you are enjoying play the guitar as used. Yes, in the situation like that i will be missing playing the guitar as you were, especially you were away because of work, not holiday.

I haven't got new gear yet, but I am thinking to get 'toneport ux1'. The one a lot of people seems to recomend. If I get that, then, yes I would like record my playing and would like to post, too (maybe).

Actually it might be quite good to think about posting the playing, because i will be practicing harder and will tidy up my playing smile.gif if you know what i mean.

That is my update smile.gif

Thanks dango, yes being away for work makes not playing that much harder but I'm home now so the LP has got some major TLC this past weekend smile.gif

You seem to be doing some major practicing there. Good for you girl smile.gif I have to agree with you about Gabriels and Muris lessons. They seem to be the ones I tend to be drawn too as well. And you've picked some great ones there to practice. Plus you have some great choices there in music. I try to do the same with my iPod from time to time, actually since you mentioned The Strokes I've updated my iPod smile.gif

As for the recording side of things I pretty much thought the same thing. I want to record so I can clean up my playing and also to get some feedback from the instructors and members about my playing. That why I will know what I need to work on, which at the moment is pretty much everything tongue.gif laugh.gif Thanks for the update and let us know if you get the toneport.

See ya around the forum and keep practicing hard smile.gif
