Hi everyone,
I´m from Canary Islands (Spain) and my english is a little short , i can write but very slow . I'm using google translator to help me a bit tongue.gif

I owned my guitar almost 20 years (i´m 40 years old), but never take it seriously. Most of the years the guitar was in the case,....sleeping lol
Now GMC gave me the oportunity to learn serious exercises in an easy way with video lessons.
I just want to learn and enjoy playing. i'm to old for stage biggrin.gif heheh
I learned a lot! in 2 months thanks to GMC, practicing really hard, i´m finally playing some guitar stuff . Now i can play 'neoclassical solo for begginers' lesson biggrin.gif and some others low level

My guitar is an Ibanez relic biggrin.gif Model DT-250 X series (1985 i think) hahaaha, but is doing his job

thank you guys wink.gif

Hola ZX6 & welcome smile.gif . Age is just a number my friend (ok, I'm 48). You are only as old as you feel & everyone knows guitar playing keeps you young! I don't ever plan on playing on stage either, but I'm sure not going to count it out! Keep practicing & see you in the forum & video chats!

What are you practicing at the moment? Do you work on some song, or exercises?

I´m basically doing excersises, because i haven't got the level to play the songs i would like to.
Sometimes I'm learning parts of Symphony Of Destruction or Five Magics from Megadeth but can't connect them, and i can't play them at the necesary speed, but no problem i keep memorizing them, some day i will play it correctly.
I prefer to do excersises now , and later it will be easier to learn songs
i'm working in:

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/solo-guit...inger-work-out/
It looks hard, and........it is! hehe

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/solo-guit...ernate-workout/
This one is wonderfull, i know its level 5, but i'm doing it at 80 bpm , and pushing to 90 sometimes to go back to 80 and feel it slow : ) so i can do it easier.

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/natura...monics_in_solo/
Harmonics and some bending, also moving a bit on the fretboard

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/triad_arpeggios_etude/
sweeppicking , i almost got it, i can do it at 100bpm : ) love it

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/slow_rock_solo/
this one is hard for me, even at low speed , many notes in short time, difficult to keep the ....flowing? , but i keep trying

This is excellent! You are working on becoming a great lead player, those techniques will help a lot. Focusing on arpeggios will provide the foundation for great melodic passages, and there are some great techniques used here for applying them on any note in order to create a nice polished solo.

I also very much advise working on bending, vibrato and chords in the same time. Those areas will cover and circle the set of skills you need for great soloing. Try Ben's Vibrato Odyssey series, or my Chord Workshop Series, you will see that only going through and playing along will already produce some interesting results! smile.gif

If you have any questions, let us know! smile.gif

I'll take your advise Ivan, on chords, bending and vibrato


Thanks for invitation Todd, but i never know what time i arrive at home from work, some days i arrive at 22:00h , some days at 01:00 am. so its difficult to maintain continuity.
Today i arrived at 10:30 and saw people in the videochat but, man..... i was hungry !! laugh.gif


Thanks for welcome Fran
