is this still open? if so I would like to participate, in getting help and to evolve enough to give help!
No big show-all movie yet of me but keep an eye on the REC-board, I am trying out some ratings...

I play (and like )about everything, but still have to make some major key-improvements, especially cleanness (vibratos and tonal purity) an real understanding of how scales and chords work. oh and better speed i could use too.
I like the REC cuz it gives an indication of my physical way of playing, and it seems to be as expected, I need to improve.

So if this still is active, check

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 finally have some videos.

Im hoping to become a student in this program, I played guitar for about 2 years and then stopped for a couple years. Now Im abit older, wiser and very keen to get playing again.

I dont have much to show for 2 years playing, mostly because my practice back then was just jamming around the pentatonic box and learning the occassional song. But I would still say Im very much a beginner in terms of both skill and knowledge.

I know a little bit of theory, I can identify the notes on the neck (although I dont have the neck fully memorised yet so it takes me a couple seconds to work it out) and I know some basics about the major scale and constructing the more commonly used chords such as majors, minors, 7ths, minor 7ths etc.

Im into most types of music, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Hendrix, RATM, Iron Maiden etc. etc. love most stuff with a nice riff or cool solo. Just want to improve my playing overall really. Learn more songs, be able to do cool solos!

I will upload a video of my playing tomorrow for you guys to see.

Thanks,
Vince.

here is video of my playing, not very good I know sad.gif

I need a mentor and my situation is about the same as the one in the post above me. I know how to hold the pick and how to hold the guitar and some different chords and such, but otherwise my knowledge is zero. I struggle with the difficulty 2 lessons. I am the metal/hard rock kind of guy, but sometimes I may want to play some softer stuff too. I am into bands like metallica and iron maiden. Dont know if this request will be answered since I got no video, I'll have to wait and see rolleyes.gif

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




me playing Ivans blues soloing beginner.. I really want to be in the next wave! I want to work!

I would really love to join MTP. I have been playing on and off for about four years and I really want to get serious. I'm a huge Hendrix fan and i would love to get good enough to play music like that. Right now I can only butcher them lol.

I only have two videos on my youtube channel but hopefully I will have some more soon

Wow, MTP seems to be a really cool idea!
So I'm looking for a mentor in the next time - until now I've practically no guitar experiences, so I'll work a little bit on this and then could hopefully join the MTP smile.gif

Quick Question.
Who will be mentoring us. Instructors or senior members. How are they assigned. I am not sure if this information was already available, but if yes I could not find it. Could some please clarify this.

Thanks

Apparently the second wave is taking months upon months to get going (because of lack of intermediate mentors I guess...). I already posted in this thread and was looking for some extra motivation through the program.. oh well
