Hi guys biggrin.gif

I come to you all with great news. First off.

Some of you may remember my old topic about me crying about not being able to use the metronome,



Well, I had made many topics about that before and never seemed to get anywhere with it.
So what I did was I went to my guitar teacher in real life ( As if this isnt laugh.gif ) and I asked him to help me with it.
It took one class for me to understand triplets and eigth note sequences and to play them well with the metronome at around 105-120 bpms.

That was a HUGE step for me.

I have yet to dive into the other time sequences but Im not worrying about that just yet, After 3 years of non-metronome practice, Im finally using it and understanding it. Even though its only triplets and eigth notes, and we havnt dived into counting like 3nps sequences in 16 notes or anything like that. Its still good enough to start though smile.gif


And as if that wasnt enough biggrin.gif.............

What is coming in the mail in 5 days is.....



Attached Image


A brand new non-tremelo Jeff Loomis Signature Guitar.

Im pumped to say the least and I cant wait to explore this 7 string, Emg loaded beast biggrin.gif


Thanks for listening to my rant , See ya everyone smile.gif
