Hey Andres

Here we go for the next for the next practice session rolleyes.gif

first of all, many many thx for your words, pushes me further and motivating for today wink.gif
no man i never lost motivation but i was a bit unhappy with the exercise you gave me, not with the exercise but with the result of my playing
it shows me that there is still a long way to go for me and thats what keeps me up at this time

and so far i have seen that practicing chords is MUST HAVE in the routine

according my picking i need to be honest, never looked pretty much at it, just played how it felt most comfortable but i am sure you are right in fact of faster licks later on, could be a problem which i have already
i see that when i try to get faster ...... also need to improved here this will show up on the alternate thirds lesson *hehehe*

in case of the tone, i already thought about it and put treble back and middle and the bass range up a bit and you are right, it makes the sound better

week 2 assignment:

i will try to do all 3 lessons, deep purple should be no real problem, alice in chains i have tried already with the starting MTP

the blues groove should be a challange but i will try to get into it a bit, maybe some parts of the lesson

i dont want to rush but to keep practicing a bit spicy i dont want to do one thing for 2 or 3 hours otherwise my head will get stuck, so i want to try different things if this is ok for you


MANY THX again for your words according the lessons, makes me some inches bigger rolleyes.gif
maybe i should change my nickname into bigger Harry laugh.gif

i will keep you updated about the work with video as usual

cya

What's up Harry?

You've been working very hard, you're like the student every teacher wants.

So lets go to the lessons:

Smoke on the Water

The Lesson

You learned the lesson perfectly.

Your playing

Very nice played. The only thing I would suggest is to put your thumb behind the neck , this will give you more control and it will be easier for you to stretch zour fingers on the fretboard. You have very nice sense of timing and rythm, which is the goal of this week assigment.

Tone

I like it , it sounds rough and hard. Maybe try to use a little less distortion and see how it goes.

Awesome work on this one.

Alice in Chains style lesson

The Lesson

You learned it perfectly, don't worry about the solo this week we are working on timing and rythm, we'll work on soloing later.

Your playing

Very well played, good timing and good rythm , very consistent. In this lesson I liked that you put your thumb behind the neck. It is not mandatory , but sometimes you will feel better in this particular position. Try to mute the strings a littlebit more with your right hand.

Tone

Try this lesson with the neck pick up , we are looking for a darker sound.

Awesome work here too.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You have an awesome sense for timing and rythm , now Im looking forward to watch the blues lesson, these two were to easy for you , so I really want you to practice the blues lesson.

I also agree to practice different things on one session, sometimes you can't move forward and you keep doing the same excercises, but if you change to another excercise or play a song your mind becomes clearer and than you can come back.

So keep going mate you are on the right track.

Andrés.

What's up Harry?

hey man, whats up ? i am doing great, i cannot even work, because i nearly think of the guitar the whole day
since i am part of this i have an interesting motivation, it seems i could play 24/7, hope this will keep like this for some days biggrin.gif

i guess this will end, if there will come some kind of tricky lessons *hehehe* like Muris "alternate thirds" blink.gif


what about you ? how are you doing with Pedja´s Fusion collab ?
he asked me to get into it but i think i am not so far for now, i really would love to and i also promised him to look at it (Sorry Pedja sad.gif )



You've been working very hard, you're like the student every teacher wants.

come on, i have never been the teachers best friend in the past tongue.gif

So lets go to the lessons:

Smoke on the Water

The Lesson

You learned the lesson perfectly.

i have done it with the previous mtp already, so its not so long ago and also this is a song everybody has pretty good in mind so its quite easy, nevertheless if you start learning guitar, it could be really tricky

Your playing

Very nice played. The only thing I would suggest is to put your thumb behind the neck , this will give you more control and it will be easier for you to stretch zour fingers on the fretboard. You have very nice sense of timing and rythm, which is the goal of this week assigment.

you are right, i need to work a bit on the position of the hand/thumb, these things (position of hand or as in the last lesson economy instead of alternate picking) mostly just "happens" without thinking

Tone

I like it , it sounds rough and hard. Maybe try to use a little less distortion and see how it goes.

Awesome work on this one.

Alice in Chains style lesson

The Lesson

You learned it perfectly, don't worry about the solo this week we are working on timing and rythm, we'll work on soloing later.

Your playing

Very well played, good timing and good rythm , very consistent. In this lesson I liked that you put your thumb behind the neck. It is not mandatory , but sometimes you will feel better in this particular position. Try to mute the strings a littlebit more with your right hand.

i had this problem already in the "beginner solo from Muris, when it comes to the short sweeping part i couldnt reach the 12th fret when my thumb was over the neck, but when i put it behind the neck it´s going great, you can see it here
https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_fo...showtopic=23488


Tone

Try this lesson with the neck pick up , we are looking for a darker sound.

i will try one vid with another sound, will have a look what i can get out of it

Awesome work here too.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You have an awesome sense for timing and rythm , now Im looking forward to watch the blues lesson, these two were to easy for you , so I really want you to practice the blues lesson.

really looking forward to Ivans blues challange, hope i can get out some update tonight for you

I also agree to practice different things on one session, sometimes you can't move forward and you keep doing the same excercises, but if you change to another excercise or play a song your mind becomes clearer and than you can come back.

So keep going mate you are on the right track.
THX alot Andres, i really enjoy this work with you

Andrés.

Hi Andres

Up for some Blues ?
here we go with the first 2 exercises of the blues library at a speed of 100 bpm with metronom
the blues rhythm itself was no problem at normal speed, just the ending was the problem so i first tried with 80 and at least with 100 bpm to give you an update for today

just a little mistake at the end of the 2nd with the finishing chord, as we have seen in week 1 cool.gif

maybe i will do another 1 or 2 now but dont know if i can make them sound pretty good

hope you like it and dont have too much to add
this time i used the neck pickup clean for some bluesy sound, i like it this time, hope you too

Hey Andres

just a short uptdate for you

Blues groove:
i have some difficulties with the inversions at the end
needs some work more, somewhere at exercise 6 i am at the moment

i guess i need to do them a bit longer mad.gif

chords exercises:
the first exercise goes better, i will get this soon i guess
not so many probs with the Dm/F/G progression left, just with arpeggios
i will get this

Carlos exercise:
this makes me some more problems, need to get confident to the chord variations
can play them pretty slow but my hand starts to feel like a claw when i do that

Alternate picking thirds:
i already started this one also
standard patterns/shapes go quite well, different fingerings need some more work

this is just a short report for you to keep our thread at live biggrin.gif

cya soon

Hi Andres

I did some practice on the weekend but not so much as usual dry.gif

nevertheless i made some vids for you to check out

what i have done so far is

Lesson 1 Beginner strumming and arpeggios
still not "perfect" but i guess its going better, especially with the descending arpeggios the chordchanges from F to G making some probs

Blues groove - exercise 1
Blues groove - exercise 2
Blues groove - exercise 3
Blues groove - exercise 4
Blues groove - exercise 5

i slowed the tempo for the blues a bit down to 100 bpm for exercise 1, 2 and 3 and 80 bpm for lessone 4 and 5

most problems comming up at the B and the endings, the groove itself doesnt make real problems i guess

when will the end of week 2 ? wednesday ?

Hey Andres

am i having wrong position of hand or what could affect this case ?
or is it because of less playing barre chords ?

when i try to change the position of thumb doesnt help really

Well Harry as I promised Im back today, as I told you my girlfriend was flying to Madrid for one year so I was spending time with her. But now I'm back to work 24/7 with you.

You have done an amazing job with all the lessons, and what is most important of it is that you recognize your own mistakes and abbilities.

I won't extend to much on the blues lesson since you already accompplished 2 of the three lessons for week 2, but of course I wanted you to learn the blues ex.

Ok, as I have told you , you have a very sence for rythm and timing, but as in week one I didn't see you very comfortable changing positions with this excersices. Do you warm up before practicing? or do you go straight to difficult excercises? How are you feeling with the thumb behind the neck , I see that in some positions you have it behind and in others you don't. In this kind of blues licks , that require some stretching I would suggest to use your thumb behind the neck all the time , try to concentrate on that.

But I have to say that you always stay in time , and thats awesome, you just need a little more practice with changing positions. I'll give you tomorrow a nice warm up excercise, for changing positions.

Overall , good job , don't worry about getting the ex at full speed, your getting there , is better to play them perfect slow , than to play them sloppy at full speed.

Regarding the new take of the the first assigment , I see that your playing the G chord the way Muris does, thats awesome , you've been working really hard on that one. I also notice that you're changing better to the F chord, but still have a tiny problem getting to the D chord. Keep practicing you'll nail those chords , before the MTP runs out.

problem with barre chords , that sounds familiar. There was a time when I avoided barre chords all the time , but it's imposible , getting comfortable with barre chords will give you an incredible chord vocabulary. I want you to warm up very well before playing barre chords. If your hand is hurting , stop playing , rest for a cpuple of minutes and got to another excercise , somthing that feels very comfortable for your hand. Try not to make to much pressure, find the teh addecuate pressure for the chord to cound right. Keep practicing , but don't over use them if your feelling pain, with the days you will get more comfortable with them.

So lets get into week three. Since you already learned week 3 solos , but you have a couple of problems with them including alternate picking, I want you to concentrate on the thirds picking lesson by Muris, and after that I want you to record , week 3 solos again but using strictly alternate picking. I don't want you to play Muris lesson at full speed , I want you to get comfortable with the picking pattern it isn't an easy pattern it needs practice. One thing that helped me a lot for this lesson is that I sing the lesson before playing it , and the is just like my fingers know where to go. So please upload a video as soon as you have it.

So keep practicing week one lesson, and the blues ex of week 2. And before practicing I want you to warm up with this lesson from Danilo Capesutto, but we will make a change of it , instead of playing with economy picking I want you to strum each position. Practice it very slowly , it's a warm up excercise , and I think it will help you to improve the chor changes. I forgot , please strectch your fingers and your hand before playing.

So I think thats it for now.

I'll update the resume you made, awesome work by the way.

Talk to you tomorrow , please ask every doubt you have.

Cya my friend!

Hey Andres glad to have you back
Hope your girlfriend will like Europe, especially Madrid or Spain, but just to let you know, Austria is more beautiful tongue.gif

I will keep the Blues lesson in mind (already bookmarked library 2 of the blues groove cool.gif)

To visualize your own mistakes is not so easy, and the video lessons are very important to get this, but its better to have someone, who tells you also some details rolleyes.gif

Warming up: i usually try to warm up with scales at the moment, but sometimes i just grab the guitar and play what comes in mind without warming up (shame on me)

Thumb behind the neck or not:
This is kind of really bad habbit, i really must concentrate on it to keep the thumb behind the neck, need to work on that

Changing positions of chords
This is really a thing that you showed me, that there is work to do
As long i was playing in a band this happens automatically, but since i am out i didnt really focus on that, now i am doing the open chords from the beginner strumming and the extended chords from Carlos Carillo as you suggested and i am really getting into it
The changes come more fluently and the fingers get used to the changing positions
Some more weeks and i can move on to advanced chords ......
Awaiting your warm up for chord changing

I am 100% with you but sometimes i „feel“ that i can do it better or even faster and then i want too much ........ also a bad habbit, and then it gets sloppy .....

I was really working on the strumming lesson and really concentrating on the chords and the fingerings, i figured out that at the first part Am-C-Em-Dm you can always keep one finger on the fretboard while changing chords, which makes the changes more fluent form e
Hope this makes some kind of sense

When i wrote that thing with pain in hand i was again trying too much
Since i have done Carlos lesson a few times meanwhile it´s getting more and more comfortable, ok after a while it still starts to get hurting but then i stop and as you suggested i continue with other things and later on i come back for some more minutes
That will work, i will just stay on path in that

So up to week 3
The alternate picking thirds is definately a tough one but i am getting slowly into it
The standard pattern is not the problem, this one i can do at around 75 to 80 bpm
At the moment i am concentrating on the other fingerings but ist a thing that i can do for sure, just takes time to get used to the fingerings – if you like i will do a vid from the status at the moment

I am also doing the Alternate Picking - 16th Note Exercises from Jose Mena to get used to this 16th notes. I also have done Muris „timing exercise“ some time ago, but i always was kicked by this 8th triplets, 16th and 16th triplets

Streching fingers:
How would suggest to do this ?

I will have a closer look on Danilos lesson and will involve it in the warm up thing
[url="https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/solo-guitar/economy-picking-iii/"]lesson from Danilo Capesutto[/url

Here is a list of exercises/lessons i already have done or i am still doing from time to time if you are interested

Beginner Solo in D

i did an improvisation over Pedja´s Fusion collab but i used the wrong backing, the Funk collab backing (shame on me)
SORRY AGAIN PEDJA

Hi Harry,

Let's take a look at the alternate picking thirds lesson:

The lesson

You learned half the lesson, we have still the thirds picking pattern to learn

Your playing

You started with a nice and consitent alternate picking, and then when you're going up you changed to a nice and consitenf economy picking, and you did that on the 4 patterns. Going down you can mantain the alternate picking but when your going up you changed to economy.

This is very strange , I find it harder the way you're doing it , and the economy picking sounds very good , but remember that the goal here is to play the whole lesson in alternate picking.

Something I miss in this lesson is a little more right hand muting , try to keep your right hand close to the strings muting the strings your not playing.

As always your timing is very nice.

Tone

Your working on your tone and thats very nice. I woulf only suggest for this one to use less distortion , thats all

Conclusion

I want you to play the lesson in the 60 bpm backing track , first the 4 basic patterns, but all of them with alternate picking. And then I want you to play the whole lesson at 60 bpm with alternate picking. At this moment speed is not important , what is really important is to concentrate on your alternate picking , so when you are going up concetrate on not repeating the up stroke.

You have a nice economy picking technique and sounds very smooth. Thats cool , because when you master both techinques you will be able to choose between a stacatto sound (more attack) wich is the alternate picking or a legatto(smoother sound) sound wich is the economy picking.

Nice job , no problems with timing but I really want you to concentrate on the alternate picking. If you want a slower backing please let me know.
-------------------------------------------------

I'll comment on your improvisation and on the Muris lesson later.

Your playing very good , keep on rocking!

Hey Andres my friend, how are you doing ?

here i have 2 videos for you

1) in this i have just focused on the AP so i took the speed down to 60 bpm on the first scale

2) here i tried the first scale with the alternate fingerings at 50 bpm

i really have to concentrate on that kind of picking, comes a bit unfamiliar at the moment, but i think i will get it
just some work and practice and then i will have it in mind .. tongue.gif

just looking for your comments as usual

Very nive work Harry, congratulations.

Now I want you to play both patterns together like in the lesson, Im uploading 3 bakings at 50,60 an70 bpm for zou to work on. Another recommendation watch your previous video , the one you made with economy picking, do you see that you have a very short movement when doing economy picking, I want you to try and do a shorter move with alternate picking too. That would give you a little bit more speed when needed.

So here you have the backings:


Attached File  alternateBT50.mp3 ( 1.85MB ) Number of downloads: 144

Attached File  alternateBT60.mp3 ( 1.54MB ) Number of downloads: 131

Attached File  alternateBT70.mp3 ( 1.32MB ) Number of downloads: 136


Awesome work my friend.
