Hi Dexxter

Finally we have it all set and ready to go smile.gif I hope we will both have some good experience with this. The first thing I would like to know is what you would like to learn and we can take it from there. Please write down your current playing abilities, post some recordings or a video (if you have) and specify which area you would like to focus on. That can be anything from theory, technique, some of my lessons - just whatever you want. I am looking forward to this and I hope that you will learn many useful things throughout this program.

All the best
Emir

Hi Emir! This will be an awesome experience biggrin.gif

I think you know me pretty well as a player already, but you can check out my youtube and myspace in my signature if you want smile.gif

My main goal with guitar is to be able to play exactly what I hear in my mind, whenever I want. So if you got some advice on that, that would be great smile.gif And this main goal automatically leads into more goals.
Like a lot of technique. Fast AP, sweeping, legato and tapping is the ones I want to master first. I want to be able to use these techniques in my improvisaion without sounding like an excercise. Whenever I try using these techniques fast when I'm improvising, I start playing excercises, which just sounds boring.
Theory is, ofcourse, also a big part of this. I want to learn chords and arpeggios of the major scale and it's modes, and to easily find and see them in every place of the fretboard. To eventually think of notes instead of positions and boxes.

I hope that's enough to get us started, tell me if you need or want to know more smile.gif

Thanks Dexxter. I know your playing already and you're not going to need much smile.gif I will give you some guidelines later today and some charts that you can learn for the start. There will be some boring exercises which you need to practice. Everyone went trhough these but they really have effect. That will help you with AP. Shall we set some main goal to achieve by the end of this program? Pick any of my lessons to work on all the time but we will practice the rest along the way.

Great! Sure Emir, how about this one?

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/ap_etu...m_triplet_feel/

This one should be achievable. This is the only one of your lesson that doesn't seem to far away to put as goal, but that will still be challenging laugh.gif smile.gif

Edit: When I tried it, I started to believe that I will be able to pull this off sooner than 3 months. But then I'll just choose another one if and when that time comes? smile.gif

Edit2: Hey Emir, if you want you can say a few words about my take for Gabriels collab that I just uploaded smile.gif https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_fo...st&p=419593

Ok no problem. I am sure you can lern that AP etude. Download the GP file and learn the first 4 bars. This is the video explaining some tips how yo make the dynamics better.



About major scale modes and patterns this chart (attached) will be our starting point. Learn at least 3 positions (boxes) for this week. If you can get them all then it is even better. Later I will show you how you can connect through those easily. This video is about the first 3 positions of G major scale.



Every friday I will give you an assignment so you can do your uploads during weekends.

Great videos, the camera your using is good enough, no need to use the other smile.gif Ok, should I record myself playing as soon as I've learnt the first 4 bars in 130 bpm? Can you hand me the backing in 127, so I can record over that, please? smile.gif

About modes and such. I actually know some things about modes, maybe I was a bit unclear on that. So I will try to explain what I already know.
I know all 7 3nps patterns pretty good, and I know which pattern "is" what mode, by having the first note as root. I also know that by changing root note you change mode. And that all seven modes consists of the same notes. I also know what intervals defines the different modes.
What I don't know is how I can see arpeggios and chords and scales as notes of the scale, rather than different patterns. I have a hard time changing between these patterns, except when running the scale up and down and then changing on the first or last string. I also don't know the chords and arpeggios of a given key without thinking to much. I want to learn how to connect arpeggio shapes and scale patterns and all the notes. So I can start anywhere on the fretboard and be totally aware of where I am and what I'm playing, if that makes any sense.
I don't know the CAGED-system good yet, so that will help me hopefully. I just wanted to make sure you are aware of what I know, so you don't need to take time to explain this in a video, when I already know it smile.gif

I thought that I'd add that I know the pentatonic shapes. I'm a little comfortable with relating the major scale patterns with the pentatonic ones, but this is something I would also like to learn more about eventually smile.gif

Ok then the next thing can be arpeggios. They can also be learnt in 5 positions. I will draw a chart for you. I am preparing some chord progression where you will use arpeggios only to start connecting positions and making melodies. That's a great way of learning how to improvise. I had that module at the university, it was called "arpeggiator". I will explain that in a video when I finish. I will send you the backing soon.

Awesome start. I really like how you feel when to mute the notes. The next part is rhytmicaly the same just different position. You can move on to the next 4 bars and then connect all 8 together. I will make a new backing in 145bpm so you can have one step in between the real tempo. That's better then to jump straight to 170.

That was perfect. Please never forget those patterns. This will be your main soloing base from now on. I will prepare arpeggios in 5 positions soon and I need you to learn those as well. There will be theory involved in all things we're doing along the way. In the meantime you can work on the AP lesson. Well done Dexter, I think with your great and quick progress we can cover much more than that lesson smile.gif

----------------------------------

Ok this is your new task until I prepare the rest. Play the same 5 position patterns of major scale but in this order: 1,3,2,4 - 2,4,3,5 etc... This is the video of me playing the 1st position slowly and the 2nd position in faster tempo. You figure out the other 3 smile.gif

The task is to play all positions the way you played in this video? Or is it two tasks?
"Play the same 5 position patterns of major scale but in this order: 1,3,2,4 - 2,4,3,5 etc..." I first thought you meant that I should play the first position, then jump to the 3rd, then to the 2nd, to the 4th etc.. Just want to understand correctly smile.gif

No, just how I started and you continue. I was talking about notes 1,3,2,4 not positions smile.gif

Great stuff Dexxter. We can get this lesson done very soon smile.gif I will demonstrate the next part on the video when I find a minute smile.gif You can work on scale patterns by then.

Here is the chart that I want you to play. Start from the top and read from left to right. First you play A major in position 5, then you play C major in position 4 etc... When you finish you move to the next row - A major position 1 etc... You should play the whole thing with no stop smile.gif Make a backing with these chords in order: A, C, D, F, G and play. If you prefer you can only leave drums like last time. This exercise will seriously improve your fretboard skills.

I'm working on this, and I can already see that this will improve my fretboard knowledge really much! I realised that I had to "re-learn" the positions as E-shape, D-shape etc.. to relate the shapes to the root note, and more easily and quicker find my way around the fretboard biggrin.gif A real eye-opener for me smile.gif

I'll post the other task today or tomorrow I hope smile.gif but this is gonna take more time.

Take your time man. Later I will produce backing with many chord changes where you should play those patterns easily and switch quickly from one to another. That's where things start to get interesting smile.gif
