Hey all - I was invited to intro myself so here goes: started playing at 14, 1st prof. gig at 17 with Witchkiller onwards to 21 with various other local outfits. Then had a decision point: University or guitar. Sorry to say that I chose University and locked up (literally) my 69 strat! But the story does not end there.....after a few decades of establishing a career and family I dusted off my strat, and bought a jackson soloist as my belated homage to RR. Now as a consultant, I have plenty of free time to explore all the resources available to guitar players like GMC. I am finding it a little bit overwhelming like the proverbial kid in a candy shop. I am really impressed with the theoretical depth of many guitarist out there and I am trying to learn my triads, arppegios, scales and chords and fit it all together musically. Took a few lessons from a jazz wizzo which was good for developing theory but didn't help me master Sails of Charron, slap arrpegios all over crazy train or deconstruct Govan's solo magic. Sorry for going on so long...Question: how do you make a request for a particular lesson? thx Bruce

Hi Bruce, how's it going? Your story has similarities to mine. Glad to hear you have picked it back up and are moving in the right direction.

Bruce,

A lot of times you can go to the instructor's board and make a topic - or just post in a previous thread for requesting.

Instructor Board

Example of lesson request thread


Have a good stay at GMC! Learn a lot and make the best of it! wink.gif

Welcome to GMC Bruce!

Brandon gave you the answer...just start a thread on an instructors board. Maybe check out their lessons first to see which one suits your preferred style best.

Thx all for making me feel at home. Ben, do you mean you are going to post an Uli lesson?

Here is my request: I would like to work on legato, the kind of smooth violin like legato played by holdsworth, allen hines, or marshall harison. I cannot find any lesson on GMC, though there are a few brief moments when Stephane on 'creative arppegio phtasing' seems to be going there. Is it acceptable to post a youtube link to illustrate what I am talking about?

Ok, here it is. This playing style is captivating....Harison calls this a lesson, but it is too fast for me to appreciate. I would like to learn what a chopin-esque pedal tone with only hammer-ons, no pull-offs

There may be whispers of an Uli thing coming soon... ph34r.gif

The kind of fusion legato that you're after reminds me of some of Juan Cortes's lessons. See what you think:

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/instructor/Juan-Cortes/

My legato style is more what Marshall Harrison called the 'heavy metal type legato'

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Bens-Land-Of-Legato-3/ but if you're interested I did a little series called Land Of Legato smile.gif

Ya, I though he used 'heavy metal legato' in a negative sense despite some pretty tasty stuff out there. Will take a look at the stuff you mention. If you are going to post Uli's SOC intro solo, I would be interested in how you do the ascending diminished sequence at the end. I use all 4 fingers but have to concentrate real hard to keep up to tempo. Cheers, Bruce.
PS - out of the loop for a while, but is Uli getting the respect he deserves for pretty much inventing shredding?

Welcome! smile.gif I"m Todd Simpson and I teach our Saturday Video Chat each week @ 10PM GMT 5PM EST. Stop by if you can this Sat! We work on building speed, alternate picking, and various other techniques. A lot of technique building to prepare you attack all of the killer lessons @ GMC with a good foundation in physical mechanics of playing.

I"d say try to attend some of the video chats from various instructors. It's a great chance to interact and ask questions one on one. You have found the best place on the web for Guitar Players IMHO. Your gonna LOVE it here smile.gif

Todd

Hi Bruce! Welcome! We're glad to have ambitious people around, so feel free to ask us anything you wish to know! Of course, I am not going to miss this opportunity of inviting you to my video chat session on Thursday evening - 8 PM London time! We'll be talking about chords using open strings and what we can do with them smile.gif

See you around man!

Cosmin

Yeah, metal is just different. Fusion isn't the be all and end all of music wink.gif

It won't be actually from Sails of Charon but I'll take a look at that solo as well and see what's going on smile.gif He doesn't get much mention from the younger generation of players but people like Marty Friedman, Yngwie Malmsteen etc all cite Uli as a great influence. cool.gif
