I'll try to make this pretty short without unneccesary info, because I like it that way.

Goals:

Main Goal:
I don't want to feel limited by anything when I play my guitar

Minor Goals:

I want to have a dead on timing
I want my technique(s) to be flawless
I want to know all the theory there is
I want to be able to apply the theory without having to think too much when improvising etc
I want to be able to sight-read & sight-sing
I want to have a perfect relative pitch (knowing all of the intervals without having to think or doubt) + (hearing the cadences, chord voicings etc...)
I want to know exactly where every note is placed on the fretboard, instantly and how they relate to each other INSTANTLY
I want to have a good grip of styles
Have a good library of licks and tricks
Having a great time completing all of these above mentioned goals.


What I've accomplished so far:

My picking technique is well developed, speed and coordination isn't enough but atm it's the least of my concerns.

Strumming, raking, fingerpicking and such is not developed enough and I do need assistance with this.

My muting skills are ok, not perfect but other areas need much more improvement.

I do not know where all of the notes are located on the fretboard (instantly) I can think a little and reach all of them, only some I do "really" know.

What I do know of theory? Iaouch dude, hard to name. Some things are automated so to speak, maybe a little test?

I know what notes are contained in a lot of scales and arpeggios but I want to be 100% sure of every arpeggio and scale.

As far as relative pitch goes, I'm working on intervals mostly atm. I can sing a fifth up or down from a given note perfectly 10 times in a row (once I've warmed up and gotten the sound in my head properly, I do want to be able to skip the warmup though). I can do the same with a perfect fourth and I'm currently working on major thirds. I do this by picking a note on the guitar or piano then singing the interval up or down, checking if I'm correct.

My "prim a' vista" is non existant.

Music I like to listen to:

Currently I'm mostly listening to different styles of Jazz. Jazz blues, bossa nova, swing, etc. Like

Miles Davies & CO
Coltrane
CC Brown
Pat Metheny
Chick Corea
Robben Ford
Al Di Meola
Keith Jarret
Paco De Lucia
Beegie Adair
Stephane Grapelli
Wes Montgomery
Les Paul
Bill Frisell

& all quality music I can get my hands on.

I hope this is enough.

Awesome Olle. If things work out I will definitely give you some theory test and improve your ear training skills. We will also work on sight reading, improvisation, fretboard knowledge and all other things that need work. For right now, this is enough info, thank you for putting it together!

Sounds great man. I don't check my mail very often since a practise guitar approx 6 hours a day, practise piano 1 hour, work on transcribing, theory and such 1 1/2 hours a day and jamming with people for the rest of my available time. But I check it a couple of times every week smile.gif

No worries Olle, I will send you notifications here, via PM or via MSN. I can even shoot you email when changes occur (when I upload lesson and material for you for example).

Take it easy with that schedule, make sure you get at least 10-15 brake in between each practice session!

I count one hour practise as 45 minute concentrated practising and 15 minutes resting.
