Don't hesitate my fellow beginners! I was nervous about putting a video up because I am so new at playing...but I was chosen and I can't believe in the few weeks since it started how much I have learned (chords, arpeggios), and how much my timing has improved! Good luck to all!

I'd like to think I'm intermediate...I can do the Smoke on the Water, but the other two look like a little bit of a challenge so I'm maybe more of a beginner than I thought...

I haven't been really watching the details on the MTP thing so I'm not really up to date on what the details are...entry process, etc. What should I be reading to get spun up on what I should do?

hey guys

here i am again tongue.gif
already upped 3 vids for you to check out
maybe i am an interesting for the MTP

just waiting for your critical answers huh.gif

i was on the list for the first sign up and now i am here again

i THINK i am advanced, but i am willing to start from the beginning, what i already do
its hard for me to set up a difficult level for me, because the lessons are soooooo different

thats why i decided to do it step by step FROM THE BEGINNING
at the moment i am working on the basic chord series and on the exercises for the MTP
ivans blues lesson is the next step after the solo part of the "alice in chains" thing

also pentatonic scales up and down and up and down, 6 hits per beat seems unbeatable for me *ufffff*
4 hits per beat i am somewhere at 70-75 BPM

so guys HERE I AM *raising hands - pick me pick me pick me *hehehe*

I'm not sure if i'm be beginer or something else the problem is i'm to bussy to made new video before sunday
i'm have here 1 older video where i'm play pavel heavy metal 3 on 120bpm..right now i'm hope i'm can made video with 140bpm and when i'm take few shoots i'm probaly made this clean{hope}

Thats the older video
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lxsG24J-C8o...9A8&index=4
i'm also know play well David A-minor penta but the {lower} backing made me trouble...and some licks are not done right yet...i'm also start training Trond rock solo but i'm was stuck with the octave run{not able to play it on right speed} so i'm left the project for now..Right now i'm working also on Liam Slayer lesson{beginer} and that kind of playing is easy for me i'm after 3 days play almost clear on 120bpm..whats made me trouble is Pavel Heavy metal lesson 1 where we use 3 finger power chord..i'm also find my self almost after 1 year playind cheating with alternate picking and play economy...i'm trying to avoid that

My goal for next 6 month...is play more clean...play more easy 3 finger power chord...play more easy when i'm try to play over backing track and executed few songs what i'm be like and play them clean and weel over backing track

actualy i'm like almost all styles of playing..from Liam Ramstain and Slayer lesson to nice melodic stuuf like Nocturnal Vision lesson{i'm wana learn that later for sure} and also some blues here is nice...i'm will be find from all instructors lot of things what i'm like

I would really like to join the MTP.. However, i have no idea at what level i am at right now.

I would like to think that i am somewhere between beginner and intermediate, but i dont know.

I will include my first video i've made, however it is a couple of months old, and i have of course progressed since then.
I will try to make time to do another video as well in the next couple of days.

I am aiming to be a lead guitarist, and i am looking to fine tune my technical ability (or lack thereof). I am also very interested in learning the theory that goes behind everything we do.

I am very much interested in learning to choose the correct scale to a piece of music, and to improvise over it with ease.

I am currently playing in a band where we play old school rock and roll like Creedence Clearwater Revival and the likes, and at the moment i am studying some of Slash' solos in order for me to learn to be better at phrasing and the likes.

I very much enjoy blues as well, and this is also something i play. However, my "blues" improvisation tends to be more rock than blues. I know the minor pentatonic scale pretty well, but only tend to use position 1,2 and maybe 3.

Here is the lesson: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ze37AbKzm-4

I will try to create another lesson soon if you want it.

this weekend will probably work - it depends how many other applications we have by then!

QUOTE (-Zion- @ Sep 26 2008, 10:28 AM) *


Great Zion - although there are many improvements you can do to your playing in this video - I still think your level is a little too high for the absolute beginner mtp students I am looking for.

One spontaneous advice I want to give you, is to work on your hammer-ons, from what I can tell in this video it seems that you don't get enough strength in your hammer-ons which results in "no sound" from the hammer-on notes.

QUOTE (besip @ Sep 26 2008, 01:30 AM) *


Where is your video? Perhaps it's just me - but I have searched all over the place! unsure.gif
