Hello Emir!

I am realy happy that i got a place in the MTP with you!

I am playing guitar for about 13 years now, with huge pauses in between. I started with a few years acoustic guitar lessons and then switched to electric guitar around 2000 or 2001, didnt remeber it exactly. 3 years ago i started to be "serious" about learning guitar and it was a slow process from then to now.

Musical Styles, Music that i like
As i wrote in the application thread it can be summarized with "metal". I got into metal with the first Hammerfall album and worked my way from there to Gamma Ray and Helloween into the german powermetal bands. This still is my preferred style of music but i also listen to many rock and hardrock stuff and also some new metal, metalcore and sometimes death and speedmetal stuff. My one clear main influence is Kai Hansen, the lead singer and guitarist of Gamma Ray.

My status
As i am not that good in describing my skills i made a short video of me playing some stuff, gmc lessons, bits and pieces of songs and random stuff:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xIW_aTU1mzE

I took everything as it comes, no rerecording and no polishing, i wanted to clearly show where i am currently. I played on my thrustworthy Charvel Model 3DR and my Noname Gibsonfake and recorded through a Zoom G2.1U. As you can hear, finding the right setting for the effects is one of my lesser evolved skills.

Besides the practical playing i have a foundation in theory but nothing to special.

What i want to work on
On this part i am not realy sure. But only because i am not sure which one is the biggest problem. I think left right hand synchronicity is a problem, speed in both hands, precision in both hands as well as improvising. Maybe you can point out whats the biggest problem by taking a look at the video?

I hope this gives you an idea about me and my skills. If i forgot anything important, please point it out and i will write it too.

Hi and thanks for the info.

I have checked the video and there is some very cool stuff but there are many things you can work on. Feel, vibrato, picking... I will make something for you within the next couple of days and I'll open the assignment thread.

We'll do an assignment every week and you're supposed to post one lesson for the REC program every week. That doesn't need to be my leson but those are the new MTP rules which we should follow. I can help you with anything you chose. Keep this thread for discussion and post your final work on the assignment thread (when I open it).

Talk soon smile.gif


edit: Just a quick correction - REC take is once a month not week smile.gif

Hi

Do you want to start sweep picking series that I am doing with some other guys? Check Jakub's thread and see if you like that concept. I think that's good to start with. Also lest me know what you have picked for the REC take.

Hi,

yeah sweep picking would be great thats a topic i wanted to learn for a long time now but never realy got it. So, should i just copy the first assignment from jakub or do you think i should start a little bit different from that?

For the REC take i would prefer something simple, like the Basic Metal Rhythm Guitar lesson by Markus Siepen. What do you think of that? or should it be something related to the assignment?

Ok lets start then smile.gif


Your first assignment is on Sunday - 6th December. Play only the 1st part in 130bpm. The week after we will play the same thing in 155 and the second video in 130. Post the final work in your assignment thread.





REC take can be anything. You can take Marcus' lesson, that sounds cool smile.gif

Well the only advice is to practice smile.gif Start with 80 then play for 20min. Then increase speed to 90 then spend another 20 min until you feel that you're comfortable. Eventualy you will hit that 130 in a day or two smile.gif

Yeah, i figured that out smile.gif I started from 80 and got to 100 without problems, the next steps were harder but i managed to get up to 130. I still have some problems now and then but i think i can nail the 130bpm by tomorrow evening.

Hi

Sorry for being this late. I was busy as hell and I still am. We can continue where we stopped last time if you are happy. We can still treat this as our old MTP phase as Kristofer approved that I can finish that up with you guys together with some new members. Let me know either way so we can move on or lock the topic smile.gif

Cheers
