Great stuff Alejandro!

I have a question regarding your weakness - theory and harmony... What are things that you know already in that area?
Also what do you seem to lack in improvisation skills? Could you go more in depth perhaps?

Thanks a lot!

Hi pedja,
the problem with my improvistaions is that I tend to repeat the same licks and I tend to get out of key sometimes.
As for my theory and harmony... I know lots of chords but I really dont now how they are made I just know them by memory, The same with scales.
One detail about my aplication videos, Those I send didint have direct audio but I recently got a POD X3 and now I can make videos with direct audio smile.gif

If there's anything elese please let me know.

Alejandro

This is enough for now Alejandro. Glad to hear you can record direct audio with your video now. It will certainly make things easier when editing videos for REC wink.gif
