This first clip is from the collab I did for Muris' Blue Note in A.


This clip is my take on Sublime's Santeria solo.



I really need to work on my rhythm and theory. I've been playing for almost 8 years now and those two aspects of my playing aren't up to speed with my lead abilities.

I'd also like to work on techniques I've put off for way too long like tapping and sweep picking. I think this is a great idea and yet another reason why I love this site!

I would like to take a go at this.

I want to improve everything about my playing! Lead, rhythm, theory, speed, dexterity, technique, everything.
The kind of music that interests me is a heavier blues/rock type of thing. If you could blend Zakk Wylde, Karma to Burn and ZZ Top together, that would be close to my goal. I have music in my head that I want to be able to get out and record. Below is my clip from Ivan's Christmas Rock collaboration and it's probably the best hing I've ever done.

Thanks for your consideration!

I'd like to be considered for the beginner mtp I have a ton of bad habits that need addressing but most of all I could use a mentor who can help me understand theory and the basics of music. Here is a quick clip I threw together in a rush hoping to meet the deadline. No backing just me hacking up Eric Johnsons tune Cliffs of Dover. Yes there are a million flaws in here but I figure if I kept rerecording ..till all the sections were perfect ..well that would take a lil time hahaha anyways dont laugh too hard please



Oh and yes I am already on that not using my pinky thing haha

Hope I am in time to apply as a beginner on the MTP.

As the videos show I really am a virtual complete beginner and so any help, guidance and support I recieve will be greatly appreciated. These are the first ever videos I have made (I bought the cam yesterday especially for this) and so the quality isn't the best. I also quickly realised how difficult it is to play as well as you would hope whilst being aware that it is being filmed. Also its painful to see every little fault laid bare!

Attached File  MTP_SOW_Jan_o9.wmv ( 16.17MB ) Number of downloads: 130


Attached File  MTP_AN_Jan09.wmv ( 42.15MB ) Number of downloads: 145


Attached File  cage_shape.wmv ( 7.04MB ) Number of downloads: 115


It has taken me the past three months or so to realise that if I learn the basics such as cage patterns and some thory then playing becomes easier. I would hope that a mentor would be able to keep me on track with this.

If accepted I hope to become a much better guitarist able to hold together a half decent solo. I am keen to try out different techniques and styles and hope to develop a better understanding of theory. On thing in particular I would like to improve is my phrasing.

What can I offer in return. Well commitment and enthusiasm for sure and a determination to improve. Who knows in a couple of years I may be able to act as a mentor to beginners too.

I enjoy all types of music but really I am a rocker at heart. 1970s blues based rock is where my heart lies so I admire guitarists like Kossoff, Blackmore, Clapton, Townsend, Gilmore, Hendrix and of course Keef!! How I wish I could play like them!

Cheers!

Can't wait! If selected, will we have any say in our mentor? Or will it be decided for us?

Yeah, mine does that as well...i think pretty much the only way to fix this is to buy a really nice one...although sometimes you can sync them pretty well

I did buy a nice one... the logitech quickcam pro 9000 is what i have

I feel that if i had someone to tell me what to learn i wouldnt skip around learning this and that as much...

I would learn what they said to show them that i can learn it and try to learn it fast... now i just learn whatever pops in my head or ill play along with songs all night ...

Outlaw2112,
Sounds like you just need to organize your practice time and gear it towards what you want to learn, whether it be rhythm, lead, theory or whatever. Do you have just a digital camera that can record video? I tried the webcam thing to and got the same results you are describing.

I suffer from this too! Its a consequence of loving music! You have a look at something and say "wow thats cool" and then waste time learning a bit of that. Before you know it you are miles from what you were meant to be practicing!

Someone to kick you up the backside and help keep you focussed would be really useful.

I aim to try the beginner competitions and maybe even a collab to try to maintain a focus.


Persevere with the cam, your problem might just be that the frame rate (often 30 fps) is not fast enough to keep up with you!
