I am waiting to here back from Smells. I don't want to step on anyones toes here. Velvet Rogers has also offered to help you so lets wait and see how Smells wants to proceed.


Small correction Jeff. I actually offered Farmer Joe to help him (and he is now part of my group) smile.gif, so you can go ahead if you want and things are sorted.

Hi!

Here's my video. It's just a few riffs I've learned, but hopefully it'll give you a rough overview over how good (bad) I am.

What I would like to acheive over the coming months? I'd like to play with more accuracy and speed. I would like to develop a good technique, and some understanding of music theory (if that's covered. if not that's OK).

The style I am aiming towards is definitely metal. Bands like Megadeth, Dimmu Borgir, Ensiferum, Hieronymus Bosch (really interesting band), Judas Priest, Death etc. Metal.

Hello!

I'd like to join the MTP program too. Unfortunately, currently I can't make a video as I have to buy a new camera. My technique isn't that much to see either. I can play a great deal of open/barre chords and switch effortlessly between them, and I finished the first lesson of the pentatonics workshop with some degree of speed. I can play easy chord progression songs (Times like these acoustic, Foo Fighters) and most Nirvana stuff pretty well.

I'd like to achieve being able to do bluesy but mostly James Brown/Frusciante funky improvisations, good clean and rock rhythm playing, exotic 'chording', and playing most of RHCP's songs and one day making songs like that, too. Other styles of bands I'd like to master is Foo Fighters-esque rock, Rolling Stones stuff, and maybe some Hendrix if I will be able to manage that.


Thanks.

I'll join, here's my video of me playing Heavy Metal for Beginners 3 with a few if any mistakes. My main problems are speed, down picking and tremolo picking. I already know my music theory but would like to be tested on it or introduced to more advanced concepts. I want to eventually be able to play fast/complex metal like Morbid Angel, Cynic, Nevermore, blah blah blah... but need to be on the right track playing fun stuff without getting bored. And I really do find some exercises fun but they seem to go to nowhere for me in terms of speed.
Thanks! tongue.gif

Hello there,

I have just found out about the MTP program an I am totally amazed to see this.

Is it to late to subscribe??? I would really like to be mentored, I am going to work on a video immediately if I can still apply.

I want to practice mainly blues, and funk rock style and learn how to improvise properly.

I know I also need to work on rythm a lot

I feel a mentor is what I really need to improve my guitar playing. I've been playing for quite a while and felt like I've been stuck at a certain skill level.

One thing I do like a lot is solos and shredding. These are some things I would love to learn or get better at.
I plan on uploading a video later to show what I can do.

Ive been playing for a year and a half but i cant seem to find the patience to actually sit down and learn a whole lesson or song. Hopefully, if i can get into the program ill become more disciplined and focus on technique and learning things like scales. Also, i would really enjoy being able to find the right tone for my playing. As you can see in the vid ive made the classic teenage mistake of focusing on speed while learning how to play, hopefully ill be able to infuse some melody(and skill) into my playing. And does it matter if my webcam isnt great?

I'll submit a video tomorrow provided my webcam gets here in the mail as it's set to. Just a show of interest... any ETA on this phase?

Well lets see I'm Eddie for those of you who don't know.. have been playing guitar for about a year now and getting completly focused and dedicated. I've always loved music, and have gotten a new found sense of self when playing guitar. I want it to be an outlet to express myself. I love blues music and would love to learn bluesy style, but not at all be restricted to it.. I love all kinds of music.. metal, rock, acoustic classical.. it all suits me in one way or another. My knowledge of theory is basic.. I've gotten through about 10-15 of andrews articles and comprehend most of it, but can't connect a lot of the knowledge and associate it in my playing. An example is pentatonic, Ivans first workshop video I can play everything smoothly up until 16th note triplets.. but have a hard time associating those pentatonic skills in my play. I know about 10-15 cover songs, and know my open chords and a decent amount about barre chords and am comfortable with them. What I would really like to do through the MTP is just improve all aspects of my play to make me a valuable guitarist. As of now I've just been playing through lessons like warming up w/ siepen, pentatonic workshop, blues soloing beginner, right hand basics, and know that if I just put in the hours of smart practice I will improve.. but what I want.. sadly.. is more! I want to eventually be the best! and knowing I'm no where close hurts! I just got a pod and webcam so I should be uploading a short video in the next couple days since I'm going out of town tomorrow. I can't wait for the harsh criticism smile.gif
