Thanks for the good critique on lesson 2, Roger smile.gif
I will certainly continue the lesson with correct fingerings, it really was more of the vibrato with the pinky being dificult that I did not follow it in my first take. Also, I have been working really hard on keeping my thumb behind the neck because I've read that it's the best way to keep your fingers in position to move quickly, so I tried that out on this lesson. But I did try like you said with bringing my thumb around the top of the neck this morning before work, and it definitely is much easier for vibrato and bends smile.gif So now I know for vibrato and bends that is the position I want to use.
I will practice this lesson again todaywhen I get out of work with the correct fingerings. I may have also cleaned the virus on my computer this morning, so I'm excited about that smile.gif
I will try to have another video up by Saturday or Sunday.

Hey Roger, just wanted to let you know I saw the new group assignment smile.gif I will get to work on it as soon as I can, definitely quicker than the last one.
Also, for the Individual lesson, I recorded one take Saturday, but couldn't get it off my camera, so I'll try to upload that today. I think I can do better now though, so I may just record another one today smile.gif

Ok, upload the one you feel most comfortable with (no hurries smile.gif).

What's up Roger? Sorry about going missing for quite a while. It has been a long tough month so far. I had to do a final programming for computer class, as well as a final test. Also had to work a few extra hours for a couple weeks to pay part of my summer course tuition, and my girlfriend just had some minor surgery, so I've had to help her out a bit more. So yeah, it's been a long month laugh.gif
Also not getting any better on the 6 string also frutrates me lol, but it's cool. I guess anything you love will frustrate any man from time to time smile.gif But I'm back now and finally in front of a computer again. I will get right back to work where I left off. Tomorrow I will upload a new take for the individual assignment. I will also look over the group assignment again, because I cant remember where I left off.

Hey Luey, great to hear from you! smile.gif No worries, it's not a time-contest and sometimes life requires other things to take priority on. Currently I can only play very limited as my work is asking 80 hrs a week from me, besides having a little daughter at home, but it's cool wink.gif . I hope your girfriend is all fine and looking forward to see you playing again smile.gif

Hello Roger smile.gif
I'm just moving the discussion over here to keep the upload thread less cluttered for you smile.gif
Thanks for the tip on vibrato. It helps to know that it should be kept in tempo with the rest of the piece. I will definitely begin heavy practice on slow and vibrato.
I also somehow managed the next 2 days off from work, so I will dedicate the bulk of those days to my lessons. I'm getting the 16th notes down a bit more, so I hope to upload a take tomorrow depending on it progress today.
That was just a quick update for you smile.gif

Awesome, looking forward to it. Regarding the vibrato being in tempo I mean that it should not neccesarily mean that you have play it always in the same tempo as the backing but it can be e.g. 1/4 note vibrato (small bends) frequency or 1/8 note vibrato frequency or 16th note vibrato frequency of that particular backing track tempo (basically see vibrato as a similar thing as note values - it should be rhythmically right for the music you are playing at that moment).

thank you Roger. That's what I was trying to say about vibrato, with it being related more with note values, I just worded horribly lol, so thanks for clearing it up smile.gif 16th notes are still kicking my butt on the individual lesson, I can't understand it, it's not even that fast lol. I will get it though, I'm practicing what I can each day.
I wanted to stray a bit off point though and discuss guitar tone, if it's ok with you. I'm signed up for 4 collabs at the moment, and my tone just doesn't get me motivated enough when playing with the backings. I'm obsessed with David's A minor collab because I love the backing, but I just can't seem to get a nice roaring tone lol. I feel that would be an appropriate tone to use on the backing, kind of like the first couple of takes already submitted. I'm not trying to duplicate those tones, but I want to get around there and add my own touch, but I can't even get relatively close. Do you have an fx tips on amp sims? You probably use the amp farm sim, which is a pretty good one, I use gtr solo, which seems kind of lacking. Maybe it's my guitar too, I know it's not very good at all lol, plus the lack of experience on my part also doesn't help. So if you have any tips or some advice as to what I should be trying, that would be a great help smile.gif

Why not have a quick chat in the chatroom about it (send you a PM as well).

Cheers

Hey Roger smile.gif

I'm back again, as I let you know earlier and I would still be very interested in continuing to be mentored by you. I that no one else has posted in about 2 months or so, and with the new MTP beginning with the instructors a lot have signed up for that too. If you're up for it still, I definitely am as well.

If you are, I'll continue right where I left off with Muris' lesson and then we can continue from there. I'll be away for the weekend visiting my mom, but I'll be taking my guitar with me to keep getting a bit of practice in. After I get back I can record a video (which will hopefully finally nail this lesson lol). My bends have gotten a bit better since the last time, and I have been practicing this lesson (at least the part you assigned to me from the lesson).

But, of course, its all up to you. Its cool if not, I understand that daily life keeps us all pretty busy smile.gif

It's great your back and I would be more than happy to keep mentoring you (but it's of course your own choice in the end smile.gif)! Looking forward to your video and we can take it up from there again smile.gif

It may sometimes take a little while for me to get back to you currently as I am completely swamped with work and have to get a huge setlist of songs under my belt for the new band I am joining. I will nevertheless check the forum quite frequently, so it shouldn't be a long delay if any.

Cheers
Roger

Cool to hear smile.gif I'll post a video on Monday.
I understand completely about being busy with work and all, I am as well. so any response delays are not a problem with me, especially with work and your new band, please put as much time as you need into that, I just need a tiny little bit of it anyway lol. But good luck with your new band adventure, I hope that works out well. If you guys get some material online, I'd love to listen or watch smile.gif
