Hi Pedja,

I think you are already well aware of my overall playing, but i try to sum it up a bit more:

Strength/Weakness (Musical):
Hm .. don't know. I guess i have a good sense of melody. Maybe this strength is often a weakness as well for me. Sometimes i try to do things too melodic and with that very predictable(?). I would like to add more "Jazz" in what i play. Still melodic, but less obvious .. don't know if this makes sense.

My feel for rhythm is not too bad ether, but i often use the same rhythm pattern over and over again smile.gif

Strength/Weakness (Technical):
My main technical weakness is alternate picking, i just can not pick faster then 16th at 120bpm. Speed is not my main focus, but it blocks my overall progress somehow. I tried everything to push it further and changed my picking hand position a few times. My right hand easily get tensed. I'm left handed btw, but play right hand guitars. Not sure how you could help me on that, but maybe you have some ideas for exercises.

I more and more dislike my vibrato. I would appreciate if you could just keep an eye/ear on every take i will upload and give me some feedback about the vibrato as well. Maybe this will force me to concentrate more on it and not just apply vibrato automatically as i often do by now.

Other than that i feel quite comfortable on the guitar, just have to continue to practice of course and get better. Technics like sweep, tapping are not my main skills, but i didn't practiced this a lot ether.

Theory:
I studied a lot of theory the last time and have now a good understanding of it ... in theory. Oxac said this quite well in his CV .. i would like to have this knowledge more INSTANTLY available in every key.

When i see a chord progression i would like to see the progression as cadences or something similar. Maybe others are interested in this as well and you could create some analyzes course(?). Don't know .. some paper homework, reharmonization tasks ... I just don't know how to practice this to feel more free with it. Any ideas and task you can give me are welcome !!

MTP Goals:
My main goals in this MTP is theory and to apply theory. I would like to learn more "tools" similar to what we have done in your class type collabs. To concentrate on small tasks only, but a lot of them laugh.gif To compose solos over a backing would be great as well.

I have the possibility to create backings (drums and other VSTs). Maybe the task could be as well to create backings based on certain rules, cadences, etc .. to create tracks with a certain mood.

Overall i would like to work more on musical aspects instead to focus too much on technical stuff. I have no problem to sit down for hours and practice technics, but i need a lot of motivation to turn on my brain and concentrate on each note i play.


Let me know if you need more informations .. Thank you Pedja !!

Thank you Andy for this great introduction post.

I will give you some theory and harmony assignments, we will analyze chord progression and cadences and finally, you will be asked to make backing tracks and improvise using specific approach over them.
I know you can record videos so stay patient until tonight when I will announce your first assignment !
