Hey ruben_mcn!

it is nice to have you on my group of students for this next MTP phase, can you tell me somethings about you?, full name, guitar level, what equipment do you have, etc?

my MTP is very personalized so i would need a recording, a video if possible, to see how are you playing actually, and i'll give you 1 task per week, again, a recording is important so i know where to start smile.gif

i hope you enjoy good rhythmic and rock n roll cause you will be playing it a lot wink.gif

Hey Adrian ..

I love Rock an Roll !!!! (Classic Rock and hardrock are my favorit music types )

Well My name is Ruben Oliveira.. I bealive I´m at an intermidiate level, I have been playing Guitar for something like 2/3 years ..
My all time fav player is slash ..my fav band was OLD Guns n Roses..

My Gear:

- Gibson Les Paul Studio
- Ibanez RG 2550 z
- Line 6 amp sad.gif
- Line 6 UX 1 (for audio recording )
- Casio cam (for video recording )

The few vids I have are here:

https://www.youtube.com/user/BBPick91

I want to Learn how to improvise in a better way ( I now pretty well the Pentatonic boxes .. I bealive the next step would be learning the Diatonic Patterns if possible in G minor .. i forgot to mentio even tho i know the pentatonic boxes and can move arround them easly i fell that i lack pre-known licks and i have a bit of difficulty in phrasing )
But I also want to improve my Rythmic sense .. Cause i don´t have much rythm on right hand wich makes me a bit bad at rythm guitar parts and also limits my soloing cause i bealive it is importante to solo w/ ryhtm ..

So i want to :

- learn Diatonic Patterns
- Improve my rythm
- learn New Licks
- Improve My phrasing ability



I´m really looking forward to start working w/ you so let´s start ..
Let me know if you want to know anything else ..

Cheers Ruben

Hey ruben!

i see where you wanna go!!, let's see exactly where you are, this is, and probably going to be the first task for all my students:

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Rock-Rhythm-Variations/

Please record yourself playing the whole number, again video is better.

Don't let the "level 2" trick you, if you don't have a rhythmic base it will show biggrin.gif, wanna see how is your overall timing, beat, and groove keeping, the last one for is not about playing in perfect timing, but playing "with the music".

Have fun trying to remember all the parts in order, i had to do my homework when i recorded it wink.gif.

Again, it is a pleasure to have you on board!

So far the only part i bealive is gona give me trouble is the plam muting beacuse it it all downstrocks and I´m really bad at that its like the speed you do the that part is like almost my limit speed w/ downstrock and if I do it for like 1-2 min in a row my arm really starts to burn .. (gotta really work my downstrock to achive Greater speeds ) ...

Hey man, i'm sorry, i don't have that backing track, got a massive data loss a while ago and lost my 3 first lessons sad.gif.
for this time is cool, just go ahead and record yourself playing with the backing track just with the camera mic smile.gif

Hey ruben!

sorry for the delay getting back man!
ok i think you have the right technique at this moment, you are just a little out in tempo, nothing too bad, but we have to work on that!
would you be able to record a video of you playing?, i can't stress this enough, it's super to see how you are playing, that way i can know what do you need smile.gif

overall good take man, let's work on that timing!

Hi Adrian... I recorded the lesson smile.gif



It Seems to be out of sync but only on youtube the original file is not unsure.gif .. hope this will get back in sync after the video finishes processing ...

Btw: The Fast Downstrock part seems to be easy now (at this speed) smile.gif Guess I just needed a bit of practice..
ohh and i had to put in a bit more of gain to cover the guitar that appeard in the backingtrack .. I was going to record this w/ a emulation of a jcm 800 on a nice crunchy setting but since the backingtrack had a guitar w/ preatty much gain on it already.. so W/ the jcm it sounded wierd sad.gif

that's what im talking about man, SOLID take.
i think you need to work a little bit on muting some strings, but that could be the guitar on the backing track.

you can submit this to rec, again it is solid.

tomorrow will post your new task, nice job!

Thanks Man .. it is a bit hard cause there is a lot of gain but most of the noise i bealive is the guitar in the backingtrack.. but I´ll try to see if there is somthing worng w/ the way I mute and i´ll try to improve it ...

I have Already submited it to rec take smile.gif

I´m looking Forward to the next task...

New task for this week, i feel like we have to work this first month on rhythmic guitar, and get that really really rock solid, the base for every good musicians is rhythm.

you did pretty good last time, so now something a little more complex:

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Muted-...-Rhythm-Guitar/

let me know if this is too complex please, i mean, it is a low level lesson, but they rhythmic can be tricky, sometimes is more about experience and not technique!

i want you to record the whole lesson, and also, lower your distortion a little bit to get more definition and harmonics!

have fun smile.gif
