Thanks for the warm welcome !

I already had a look at the "what are your weaknesses" thead and also to some weekly coordination exercices proposed by one of the instructors, which I found refreshing and usefull;

any other good starting points you would recommand ?

thanks


Welcome aboard man, anything specifically that you would like to improve on? Any certain technique? By your introduction, I would presume you have some skill! smile.gif

well, I think I'm ok when in my confort zone, which is mainly pentatonic oriented, where I guess I've developed tone, attitude and some expressivness.
but most of the time due to the fact years ago I skip the process of developing a stronger technique , I know my limits.
so I guess a proper alternate picking, better hand sync, more theory in the background..wouldn't hurt either :-)

being more a rythm guitarist, I want to improve in the soloist art..

here is some examples of my playing:

check out are you gonna go my way cover for instance, i'd like some feedback on the cover and on the solo as well...
you can also check out my own stuff like je l'entends, nolwen, les bottes des soldats de paille, or dans un monde ... feedback welcome !

well you sound good. you will find pretty much world class level playing here by teachers for the most part, beyond what you will oven see in the day to day world of bands playing in clubs or something like that. There is a strong, very strong neoclassical base to a lot of what you find here, even if not per see neoclassical music. That is what you really want to learn, if you are serious about improving your technique, because they have the fingerings that require finger dexterity, heavy use of the all 4 fingers. Even the metal here for the most part has a neo base to it. We have some excellent teachers from Argentina. Muris and Hot are world class guys who are from Eastern Europe originally. David has knowledge that is unsurpassed I think. A lot of great teachers from Eastern Europe. Marcus is in a very well known band called Blind Guardian. The list goes on and one. There is one teacher called Ian, from South Africa. You might check him out, he has incredibly relaxed hands while he plays, and I think that is why his rhythm is so great.

I don't know where you are from, I am from the US. I think a lot of Americans do real well, those that are motivated, but for the most part, the best guitarists anymore other that some well known guitar hero's live outside the US. I mean, I have the distinct impression that guys who have worked hard enough to really excel are more outside the US anymore, it sure appears that way. So that is who I am learning from, because I really want to get good at this. I come up with my own ideas for how to proceed, to flatten the learning curve, and think I know what I am doing. But I build it on the base of what I learn here, and other than listening to catchy tunes on youtube, see no reason to look further. I get some rhythm's from songs, often simple songs, but as far as learning guitar stuff, playing notes, see no reason to look beyond this site, it is all here.

Check out some of Pavel's old stuff, even though he is gone now. For example D-Mood. He had a lot of neat catchy compositions, that one had a gallop beat, but interesting short runs, great rhythm. Look at Gabriel for a wide selection of indie type band stuff, Gabriel is great, I could go on and on, I have 132 lessons I work on. And try to integrate, to see how I can fit it together. For example, you can take Gabriel's Power Metal Rhythm lesson, and lead right into Marcus L's Neoclassical Etude #1, seamlessly. Both great compositions. The second has fingering in the first part, that I think one has to either have dexterity, or develop it, to play it well. David has a great Brain May lesson, and Glam lesson. Muris plays EVH better than EVH. There are others, probably two dozen teachers who make up the lessons I do.
