18:34:15 rokchik: General Chat: It'll be 2 yrs for me in July. Due to work I only get about 1-2 hrs a day but I try to jam as much in as possible
18:34:41 TheProof: General Chat: what are you playing lately?
18:35:23 rokchik: General Chat: doing the metronome and Barre chord lessons right wise just started to learn Mr. Brownestone by GNR and Over the hills and far Away by Zeppelin
18:35:30 rokchik: General Chat: you
18:35:56 TheProof: General Chat: im working on metal riffing right now and john petrucci 3 string sweeps
18:36:07 rokchik: General Chat: sweet
18:36:37 rokchik: General Chat: I havn't ventured much outside of the beginner lessons...want to try and be systematic
18:37:09 TheProof: General Chat: with good intentions it'll do you no harm
18:37:30 TheProof: General Chat: i just like the satisfying feeling of playing hard
18:38:57 rokchik: General Chat: hey...I agree but I find I get kinda confused and frustrated if I jump around....when I start to lose motivation I just try to learn a new song with what I've learned so far on GMC it usually helps
18:39:51 TheProof: General Chat: what kinda guitar are you playing?
18:40:30 rokchik: General Chat: A Gibson Les Paul Standard....bought it this past August. It's my baby!!!!
18:40:39 rokchik: General Chat: you
18:41:08 TheProof: General Chat: ohh very nice! i'm a thrash metal shred fan so i got myself a nice shecter blackjack
18:41:45 TheProof: General Chat: i was debating whether to get a gibson les paul studio in white but i ended up with this one, i think i made the right decision for my fingers desires
18:41:57 rokchik: General Chat: cool. I like the look of the shecter and the Ibanez but I'm not much of a shredder
18:42:20 rokchik: General Chat: my LP is a 60's slim taper neck so it's not so fat
18:42:32 rokchik: General Chat: it's also black
18:42:45 TheProof: General Chat: sounds nice
18:44:06 rokchik: General Chat: Yeah I'm in the process of making it all black as right now it has like a cream color accent. But I have a black pickguard and toggle patch ordered. Picked up the brckets for the pickups last week.
18:44:33 rokchik: General Chat: I just like black guitars for some reason
18:44:39 TheProof: General Chat: i can relate!
18:44:57 TheProof: General Chat: they just have the undescribable apeal
18:45:24 rokchik: General Chat: they go with everything....ultimate
18:45:27 TheProof: General Chat: my blackjacks got a cream outline but i find the contrast very benefitial to the overall look
18:45:41 TheProof: General Chat: ahahah i guess that's true, never thought about it tho
18:46:07 rokchik: General Chat: my LP will still have the cream trim along the edges for a bit of contrast
18:46:33 rokchik: General Chat: it's a women thing...accessorising is our life
18:47:07 TheProof: General Chat: ohh, RokChik
18:47:22 rokchik: General Chat:
18:47:33 TheProof: General Chat: i thought you were making a joke that you were a Hik and you couldnt spell Rock
18:47:46 TheProof: General Chat: silly me
18:48:21 rokchik: General Chat: nope just trying to be original
18:49:35 rokchik: General Chat: I'm not much of a techy so this whole forum/ online handle is new to me. rokchik just seemed to fit...I'm a chick who likes to I used it
18:50:00 rokchik: General Chat: am a bit of a hik though
18:50:30 TheProof: General Chat: ahah
18:50:36 TheProof: General Chat: then we'll play it both ways
18:51:55 rokchik: General Chat: cool....I'm really just a horrible spelling is actually pretty good. Hooked on phonics worked for me!!!!
18:53:17 TheProof: General Chat: ahah yea well my spelling has steadily decreased with typing
18:54:07 rokchik: General Chat: what do you do on Toronto?
18:54:47 rokchik: General Chat: besides guitar

19:01:52 rokchik: General Chat: like I said...don't hold it against me
19:04:10 rokchik: General Chat: My cousin is a rastafarian
19:04:32 rokchik: General Chat: he's living in Vancouver right now

19:13:28 TheProof: General Chat: i enjoy it quite a bit
19:13:44 TheProof: General Chat: it really gives a nice convienence and very easy to work of off
19:15:52 rokchik: General Chat: I find the video lessons can start and stop as much as you want. No live teacher would do that for ya. Kris and the other instruct. are great too. Lessons structured very well
19:17:05 rokchik: General Chat: Well I gotta jet so great talking to ya. see ya around the site.
19:25:07 FmX: General Chat: heya TheProof

19:25:52 FmX: General Chat: decent, hey rokchik
19:25:57 rokchik: General Chat: hey boy's I'm back
19:26:36 rokchik: General Chat: dogs wanted to come in the decided to run up the road
19:26:38 FmX: General Chat: how have the barre chording practice gone rokchik
19:27:31 rokchik: General Chat: I was just typing the same thing to U. coming along...have my good moments and bad ones. bad ones are slowly starting to be fewer. how bought you
19:27:45 FmX: General Chat: shit for me
19:27:54 rokchik: General Chat:
19:28:03 FmX: General Chat: I've had some pain in my shoulder the last 2 days so I've basicly just worked on my alternate picking
19:28:28 rokchik: General Chat: R U using a strap on your guitar?
19:28:30 FmX: General Chat: TheProof what level are you at
19:28:58 TheProof: General Chat: level?
19:29:16 FmX: General Chat: rokchik: yea but like I said I'm a metalhead so the guitar is at my knees even with the strap. And I sit down and play so it doesn't really affect my shoulder I think
19:29:24 FmX: General Chat: of guitarin', are you a pro?
19:30:06 TheProof: General Chat: course not, not close-but with steady practise and hard work i hope i will be one day
19:31:00 FmX: General Chat: ok, that's a very nice ambition, I have the same one only barre chords have slaughtered me completely
19:32:24 TheProof: General Chat: i pretty much strictly practise alternet picking sweeping and finger picking- at the moment. once i get those to a certain level ill work on something else maybe barre chords
19:32:29 rokchik: General Chat: FMX: I found that even sitting down, if I never had a strap my shoulder would still bother me. Felt like the guitar slipped a bit when playing so was always compinsationg then my shoulder would hurt. Since I started using strap even when sitting don't seem to have problem but that may just be me and the fact that my LP weighs a tonne
19:33:01 FmX: General Chat: oh jesus a LP lol
19:33:08 rokchik: General Chat: yeah
19:33:09 FmX: General Chat: I've played one of those I can understand the pain
19:33:18 FmX: General Chat: weighs a ****ing ton
19:33:36 rokchik: General Chat: yep...but worth every ounce
19:33:51 FmX: General Chat: yea, but it's a really really heavy guitar
19:34:49 rokchik: General Chat: I'm willing to deal with that because it sounds amazing. Besides gives me a arm workout so one less thing to do at the gym
19:35:04 FmX: General Chat: true true
19:35:23 rokchik: General Chat: What r u playing...still usuing the acoustic
19:35:29 FmX: General Chat: oh god, why did you have to remind me I gotta go to the gym tomorrow
19:35:31 rokchik: General Chat: I can't spell sorry
19:35:46 rokchik: General Chat: or type
19:35:53 FmX: General Chat: yea, but I'm thinking about starting using my electric only for a while and get the barre chords..
19:36:01 FmX: General Chat: feels like zero progress the last few days
19:36:47 TheProof: General Chat: bigger hands easier they are they come naturaly to me
19:37:29 rokchik: General Chat: I've sort stopped the metronome lesson right now just so I can cocentrate on the barre chords. I've been going along with the lesson videoi pretty good but if I actually try to apply to a song I lose it
19:37:51 rokchik: General Chat: my pinky is still a problem
19:38:19 rokchik: General Chat: kinda solved the thumb thing though...Tank had some great suggestions
19:38:33 FmX: General Chat: actually I've been cheating with the metronome too, don't use it all the time, I should but I don't
19:39:00 rokchik: General Chat: Yeah I'll feel guilty after barre chords are learned
19:39:07 TheProof: General Chat: lol
19:39:35 rokchik: General Chat: see ya Te Proof
19:39:45 rokchik: General Chat: sorry typing is horrible
19:40:03 rokchik: General Chat: I should take lessons in that too LOL

19:48:38 FmX: General Chat: now I'm on that same level too rokchik
19:48:41 TheProof: General Chat: me too i find simplicity is the key
19:48:48 FmX: General Chat: before I wanted to learn every Metallica song, every maiden song etc
19:49:05 FmX: General Chat: was just, learn a song, 10 secs in you encounter a problem, oh well. Next song etc. so basicly
19:49:12 TheProof: General Chat: when you listen to some hard core speed picking by like petrucci or something hes keeping the patterns farely simple
19:49:18 FmX: General Chat: I know 100 small parts of songs but not a single whole song and that's sad
19:49:25 TheProof: General Chat: oh boy
19:49:25 rokchik: General Chat: Like the great Garth would say..." I like to play..." tap on the symbol to end quote.
19:49:34 TheProof: General Chat: if you like to learn songs learn an entire one perfectly
19:49:42 TheProof: General Chat: trust me it'll make a world of difference
19:49:43 FmX: General Chat: exactly
19:49:56 rokchik: General Chat: true that
19:49:59 FmX: General Chat: learning parts of songs by tab is useless
19:50:02 FmX: General Chat: takes you nowhere
19:50:08 TheProof: General Chat: just never give up at it you can take breaks if frustrated but its a huge and necessary step towards writing your own music
19:50:27 FmX: General Chat: I can honestly say I SUCK after 1.5 year, the only advantage I have over complete noobs is that I'm kind of familiar with the guitar. I feel comfortable with it.
19:50:31 rokchik: General Chat: I know lots of people who can play the beginnings to lots of songs but can't play one all the way through. Why even bother
19:51:10 TheProof: General Chat: ive been playing a year ish
19:51:20 FmX: General Chat: if I had practiced like I have after joining GMC from the start I would have been soooo much better now
19:51:34 TheProof: General Chat: and i wouldn t say i suck not to sound vain! but 5 or more hours of practise a day gives me the right to say im a little past the sucking stage
19:51:37 rokchik: General Chat: I feel the same way
19:52:09 rokchik: General Chat: I think I suck...people say I'm not bad for being self taught...but I suck
19:52:25 FmX: General Chat: yea well it's normal I guess
19:52:43 FmX: General Chat: name one person that didn't suck after such a short time
19:52:57 rokchik: General Chat: your your own worst critic
19:53:06 TheProof: General Chat: yea
19:53:41 FmX: General Chat: well actually I knew pretty much everything from the beginners sector (even the barre chords I just never practiced them)
19:53:53 FmX: General Chat: well, the metronome lesson was very important to me, I didn't know that actually
19:54:13 FmX: General Chat: so now I'm just lost.. DOn't know what to do. I thought I'd go for all the BORING stuff because then I know I am doing it right lol
19:54:28 rokchik: General Chat: I'm going through the beginner lessons pretty good now...noticing some great improvment
19:54:41 FmX: General Chat: but I'm losing motivation like this, I don't want to play damn country music so I think I'll just go for the legato and tapping lessons when I'm done with the barre chord
19:55:11 rokchik: General Chat: I havn't thought that far ahead yet.
19:56:05 rokchik: General Chat: just gonna go with the flow I think after the beginner stuff is done...try to figure out just what I want to accomplish once the basics are taken care of
19:56:27 TheProof: General Chat: oo
19:56:32 FmX: General Chat: yea I think it's important not to cheat with the basics
19:56:36 TheProof: General Chat: i did
19:56:37 TheProof: General Chat: lol
19:56:38 FmX: General Chat: that's why I'm still in the beginers section
19:56:44 rokchik: General Chat: me too
19:56:47 FmX: General Chat: it's boring, yes. But it has to be done
19:56:49 TheProof: General Chat: i was self taught till 2 months ago
19:56:56 TheProof: General Chat: i can shred like a maniac
19:57:00 TheProof: General Chat: but just learned to keep time
19:57:02 TheProof: General Chat: etc
19:57:15 FmX: General Chat: cool, how long have u been playing TheProof?
19:57:19 TheProof: General Chat: yearish
19:57:27 rokchik: General Chat: I try not to think of it as is but it is also neccessary
19:57:53 FmX: General Chat: yea rokchik I agree with you but let's face it
19:58:21 FmX: General Chat: compared to the stuff we want to do it's boring. But I see it as an investment. It will give us great joy later on I guess
19:58:33 rokchik: General Chat: exactly
19:58:40 FmX: General Chat: sitting down and just writing a song or something, I just wanna get there. And I will no matter how hard the road will be
20:00:04 rokchik: General Chat: It will be that much more rewarding in the end man
20:01:31 rokchik: General Chat: already it's been rewarding for metronome speeds are picking up, barre chords are slooooooowly coming along and I'm happy with the progress I've made in the scales/excercise lessons
20:02:13 rokchik: General Chat: And already I've noticed that the songs I knew before I seem to play better
20:02:24 FmX: General Chat: rokchik how do you use the metronome
20:02:42 rokchik: General Chat: how do you what do I practice?
20:02:52 FmX: General Chat: I just put it on once in a while, I don't keep track.. actually I don't know how to practice using the metronome except for in excercises kris tells us how to in the vids
20:02:57 FmX: General Chat: yea exactly
20:04:42 FmX: General Chat: and TheProof how long did it take to start sweeping for ya
20:06:36 rokchik: General Chat: Basically i just play the Am pentitonic scale. I'll start counting the quarter notes basically I'll do one note on the scale for each beat and go from there. As I move up (eighths, triplets etc) I just adjust the count. I don't know if that makes sense or not
20:08:03 FmX: General Chat: yea I was just wondering what you use the metronome for, so you just play the Am penta+
20:08:06 FmX: General Chat: with metronome
20:11:23 rokchik: General Chat: I haven't incorped it into any songs yet if that's what you mean...right now I'm just tring to get my hand speed up and learn to count out the notes. I find the Am scal the easiest to use as I'm more familiar with it. Basically what Kris is doing in the video but I'm usuing the whole scale pattern
20:12:07 rokchik: General Chat: my timing is pretty crap...the metronome helps
20:13:14 rokchik: General Chat: hey Andrew
20:13:38 FmX: General Chat: okay same here, I don't really use the metronome other than that
20:13:42 Andrew Cockburn: General Chat: Hey! Just thought I'd drop by and see what was happenin
20:13:42 FmX: General Chat: hlo Andrew
20:13:48 Andrew Cockburn: General Chat: hi FmX

20:16:23 Andrew Cockburn: General Chat: lol - the blessed metronome
20:16:38 rokchik: General Chat: or cursed depending on the outlook
20:16:44 rokchik: General Chat: lol
20:17:10 Andrew Cockburn: General Chat: YEah - I kind of plateaued with that - I play up to a certain speed, my fingers are wiulling but my muscles have no endurance
20:17:36 Andrew Cockburn: General Chat: It wasn;t a big deal when I was playing slower stuff, but now it is limiting me
20:17:54 rokchik: General Chat: I'm getting shredding yet...
20:18:21 Andrew Cockburn: General Chat: lol - same here - some rough cutting perhaps, but no shredding
20:18:37 Andrew Cockburn: General Chat: Actually, I'm doing well with my legato at the moment
20:18:40 rokchik: General Chat: I've noticed some progress with my triplets...not much but about 5-6 bpm more than when I started
20:18:56 rokchik: General Chat: congrats
20:19:00 Andrew Cockburn: General Chat: Cool - ecery little helpsm and once you have it you keep it
20:20:00 rokchik: General Chat: I'm still in the beginners stage right now. Scales, excercises, metronome and the evil evil barre chords
20:20:13 rokchik: General Chat: barre chords are the devil
20:20:35 Andrew Cockburn: General Chat: Evil sounding stuff when all you want to do is play like JP ...
20:20:57 Andrew Cockburn: General Chat: Bar chords - I was about 12 when I came up against them, and yes, dammit they were the devil
20:21:03 rokchik: General Chat: yep...I argue with my pinky every day
20:21:08 Ryan: General Chat: barre chords arent all the hard to figure out..the hard getting yoru index finger strong enough to barre to get every note
20:21:22 Andrew Cockburn: General Chat: I remember my wrist aching like the blazes for months
20:21:26 rokchik: General Chat: my thumb and I have come to an understanding but I'm about to wage war onmy pinky
20:21:26 Ryan: General Chat: which takes..very very little time
20:21:49 Andrew Cockburn: General Chat: Ahh, yes ... I have a truce with mine but we are still only allies not friends
20:22:14 Andrew Cockburn: General Chat: And when I try to make him toe the line it hurts like hell
20:22:16 rokchik: General Chat: I have the barre figured out but when I in corp the ring finger and pinky I mess up
20:22:42 Ryan: General Chat: thats the easiest part..
20:22:46 Andrew Cockburn: General Chat: You'll get it
20:22:50 rokchik: General Chat: yeah my hands a bit sore from this evenings practice
20:22:53 Ryan: General Chat: the hard gettin gevery string to ring..which isnt all that hard
20:23:15 Andrew Cockburn: General Chat: Yes, I also remember months of dead sounding notes
20:23:24 Andrew Cockburn: General Chat: TRhen the triumpg of my first clear bar chord
20:23:27 rokchik: General Chat: I have very small hands...basically I just have to build up strength
20:23:53 Andrew Cockburn: General Chat: ANd we all know how you do that ...
20:24:00 rokchik: General Chat: I think I may get the rack for my hand...stretch the hell out of it
20:24:09 rokchik: General Chat: lol
20:24:12 Andrew Cockburn: General Chat: lol - that wasn;t wjat I had in mind
20:24:17 Ryan: General Chat: building up the strength is easy 2...just practice barre chords..for a week straight...about 2 hours everyday..and then..boooooooooooooomm youll have it
20:24:24 Andrew Cockburn: General Chat: WOuld teach it a lesson though
20:24:46 FmX: General Chat: and I'm back

20:32:34 Andrew Cockburn: General Chat: My wife likes to shop ... but it fits into my master plan
20:33:07 FmX: General Chat: I went with a friend, she wanted to do some shopping
20:33:15 FmX: General Chat: some "quick" shopping I believe she said even
20:33:26 Andrew Cockburn: General Chat: Theres no such thing!!!
20:33:28 FmX: General Chat: I'll be honest with you, if I had a gun I would have shot myself
20:33:47 TheProof: General Chat: yea its not fun lol
20:33:53 FmX: General Chat: 2.5 hour in a store the size of my room
20:34:00 FmX: General Chat: how she managed, I don't know.
20:34:06 Andrew Cockburn: General Chat: I know, I know ... but every female interst item my wife buys counts towards a new guitar
20:34:18 FmX: General Chat: aah, what a sweet deal
20:34:21 Andrew Cockburn: General Chat:
20:34:30 FmX: General Chat: if your wife is an average female you'll have 5 new guitars by the end of the year
20:34:36 Andrew Cockburn: General Chat: No honey, get the more expensive Loius Vuiton bag ...
20:34:43 Andrew Cockburn: General Chat: Exactly!
20:34:49 TheProof: General Chat: ahahaha
20:34:51 TheProof: General Chat: brilliant!
20:34:53 FmX: General Chat: haha that's classic
20:35:02 TheProof: General Chat: if only i had a wife i could fool
20:35:05 Andrew Cockburn: General Chat: I bought 4 in the last 6 months ...
20:35:09 TheProof: General Chat: when im forced to shop with girls
20:35:12 TheProof: General Chat: im paying too :|
20:35:24 Andrew Cockburn: General Chat: Ahwell you see, you donl;t fool them
20:35:36 TheProof: General Chat: ahah you just incourage them for your own benefit!
20:35:41 Andrew Cockburn: General Chat: you just give them an excuse to let you do what they were planning to anyway but get points for it
20:36:03 Andrew Cockburn: General Chat: its coimplex, and in fact by the time you start to get a handle on the female mind its way too late
20:36:28 TheProof: General Chat: i currently have no handle once so ever on the female mind...
20:36:37 TheProof: General Chat: its just annoying to even try and understand
20:37:01 Andrew Cockburn: General Chat: Occasionally you get a glimpse, and it is awe inspiring
20:37:35 TheProof: General Chat: ahah im still waiting for my first glimpse!
20:37:58 Andrew Cockburn: General Chat: The best you can hope to do is by dint of huge effort construct a toolkit of techniques that works in a limited number of cases with a single female
20:38:25 FmX: General Chat: sorry had to afk a quicky
20:38:26 Andrew Cockburn: General Chat: And if they cotton on they change everything - but sometimes its kinda fun
20:38:57 TheProof: General Chat: haha
20:39:24 Andrew Cockburn: General Chat: The only consolation is that they feel the same about us
20:39:32 TheProof: General Chat: i understand why you have the metaphysical maybe planet or some sort of thing as your icon
20:39:40 Andrew Cockburn: General Chat: lol
20:39:50 Andrew Cockburn: General Chat: caught me in a philosophical mood
20:40:45 FmX: General Chat: Andrew, you have proven yourself worthy to follow in my footsteps, and learn about the ways of the oatmeal
20:40:54 TheProof: General Chat: good i think we could have a great discussion sometime i find myself in the same thought pattern sometimes (philosophical that is)
20:41:07 Andrew Cockburn: General Chat: Gosh - oatmeal, am I worthy?
20:41:10 Ryan: General Chat: lol
20:41:10 TheProof: General Chat: ahahah what an honour, ill sit and watch from a distance, brb

21:54:03 Ryan: General Chat: lol
21:54:22 FmX: General Chat: seriously though guys, do you know the notes on the fretboard by heart
21:54:39 Ryan: General Chat: no
21:54:39 FmX: General Chat: I can "think" them out but I only know up to C on the low E string like that
21:54:57 Ryan: General Chat: its the same..for every string..just starting on a diffferent not
21:54:58 Ryan: General Chat: note
21:55:13 FmX: General Chat: yea I know I just don't know them fluently so to speak
21:55:15 FmX: General Chat: on the fretboard
21:55:20 TheProof: General Chat: i dont
21:55:20 FmX: General Chat: but I know them in general
21:55:42 FmX: General Chat: A, a#/bb, b, c, c#/db etc..
21:55:52 FmX: General Chat: I know those, but not on the fretboard! :<
21:55:57 TheProof: General Chat: i dont know any by heart actually i havea very weird way of writing music i start with improv till i find something i like then i sit down with my thingy of all the notes and work it out so its proporly composed in key
21:56:04 Ryan: General Chat: A a#/bb b c c#/db d d#/eb e f f#/gb g g#/ab
21:56:17 FmX: General Chat: ya ^^
21:56:20 Ryan: General Chat: and the strigns go from
21:56:21 TheProof: General Chat: abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz
21:56:30 TheProof: General Chat: ?
21:56:36 Ryan: General Chat: top to bottom...E a d g b E..I think
21:56:39 Ryan: General Chat: not sure on that lol
21:57:02 TheProof: General Chat: lol
21:57:02 TheProof: General Chat: yea i know that
21:57:27 Ryan: General Chat: then to figure out on the fretboartd..just start fromn the not all that hard
21:57:41 Ryan: General Chat: just put a lil thought into it..and after a wont have to
21:57:43 FmX: General Chat: You missunderstand me
21:57:53 Ryan: General Chat: o
21:57:55 FmX: General Chat: not to sound like a big ego but I know all that but
21:58:01 Ryan: General Chat: np
21:58:17 FmX: General Chat: I am not fast enough in the head to know what I'm playing when I am playing it if you know what I mean
21:58:26 Ryan: General Chat: yea
21:58:27 FmX: General Chat: like when running through the Am Penta
21:58:30 Ryan: General Chat: thats what sclaes are for
21:58:35 TheProof: General Chat: ive honostly never tried because i really like my style of writing improv then sit down and systematically work it out in key proporly composing it
21:58:41 Ryan: General Chat: or should i correctly say...patterens
21:58:52 FmX: General Chat: I don't think like "A, C, D, E" etc
21:58:59 Ryan: General Chat: same here
21:59:03 Ryan: General Chat: i play..what sounds right
21:59:04 Ryan: General Chat: lol
21:59:15 FmX: General Chat: but I should, and the only reason for why I know that is because I have the guitar here and I figured it out because I know the name of the open strings
21:59:18 FmX: General Chat: and I know the intervals
21:59:20 Ryan: General Chat: i really dont use scales..sometimes..when im playing..ill stop.and be like..this pattern is what i can use
21:59:26 Ryan: General Chat: but idk about what keys there in lol
21:59:45 TheProof: General Chat: keys are pretty detremental
21:59:56 TheProof: General Chat: in a sence, if you can recognize them you dont need to be able to name them
22:00:03 TheProof: General Chat: but the recognition is whats important
22:00:16 Ryan: General Chat: i cant even recognize them..but im trying lol
22:00:26 Ryan: General Chat: tthoery is the only hard thing for me on guitar..playing is the easy part lol
22:00:51 FmX: General Chat: I'm trying to find a balance between the two, but I am better at theory than playing at the moment in my own opinion
22:01:10 FmX: General Chat: I find music theory FUN unless it's too overwhelming hten it's just too much
22:01:11 TheProof: General Chat: i dont really know i dont want to be all gay and say im good at this and blah blah
22:01:23 TheProof: General Chat: but my one natural talent is lightning fast picking
22:01:27 Ryan: General Chat: im good at memorizing the patterns..piece of cake..but hte my problem..and how modes fit into everything..and arppegios...and y this works and htis doesnt
22:01:29 TheProof: General Chat: always have been able to XD
22:01:38 FmX: General Chat: TheProof: that's a very good talent isn't it
22:01:45 TheProof: General Chat: dude i love it
22:01:49 FmX: General Chat: you both have stuff I want
22:01:53 FmX: General Chat: my memory is shit
22:01:53 TheProof: General Chat: im pissed, shred a bit and i forget
22:01:56 FmX: General Chat: my picking is shittieer
22:02:05 FmX: General Chat: and my fingers are pussies tell you the truth
22:02:06 TheProof: General Chat: ahaha yea those are my two assets!
22:02:07 FmX: General Chat:
22:02:17 FmX: General Chat: I get so frustrated with this sometimes
22:02:19 TheProof: General Chat: i have no memory at all in anything other then guitar
22:02:26 Ryan: General Chat: SAME HERE
22:02:27 TheProof: General Chat: i look at a tab and its stuck in me till i die lol
22:02:41 TheProof: General Chat: someone tells me something, goes in one ear and is burned on the way out the other
22:02:59 Ryan: General Chat: 1 day i wil admit not tryign to be cocky or nothign..but 1 day..ill be guitar god..i can just feel it
