> IS THAT YOUR MAMA?

Nope didn't think so either. We all know parents don't get this.

I can show you how to be the virtuoso your folks could only dream about, but I first need your help:

* Pm me and I will show you where to start. I am online every day and I will help you out directly!

* Join my mentoring program. I will customize your learning experience in a way you haven't experienced before. We will have regular contact so that you can remain inspired every day and eventually reach a new level.

* Join my next video chat! GMC startpage holds a video chat schedule. We always cover a lot of ground and have fun. Remember that you don't need any previous knowledge, and you can be passive in the chat.

* Jam with me - you will find active collabs here.

* Post a topic on this board, guitar related or not - doesn't matter! You will find that chatting with instructors boosts your motivation to practice.

* You haven't missed my latest video lessons, have you?

* Oh and did you know that to become a killer guitarist you just need to focus on one thing? Everything
else is secondary. Pm me and I will explain.

Hey everyone! I wanted to post this in some time now smile.gif

I got to spend some time with a friend of mine and exceptional musician and bassplayer (performed with Steve Vai in Romania and Italy) and we were discussing rhythm, when suddenly he showed me his timing improving routine:

He made up a backing track containing only drums at a very slow tempo (60-65 BPM) and he started extract random bars out of it without knowing where he took them out from and how many he excluded.

Afterwards, he came up with a little formula and started playing it over this drum track and guess what - his timing was so sharp that he perfectly stayed with the tempo even when he was playing while he was having nothing in the background (over the missing bars).

I uploaded 4 tracks at different tempos with missing bars, so you can have fun with them in the same way smile.gif and I'm sure that you will develop a tremendous timing and rhythmic control if you'll work with these patiently and focused smile.gif

Just pick anything you would like to practice on and play it over these tracks biggrin.gif

Let me know how it goes!

Cosmin

This is an interesting concept I will have to try. I am really into Opeth, so I need to develop a perfect rhythm. With complicated syncopated rhythms. It is why I am learning Jazz.

I was practicing with these track and should i start with 60bpm because im practicing with 75bpm? and while im practicing at the beginning its good i catch the rhytm but when it come to end part with just one kik and lots of blank bars i miss the tempo. For beginning is it normal? will it get better as i keep practicing?

Hey mate! Yes! It's absolutely normal to have trouble with it at the beginning, give it some time and work it out until you are able to lock in with the groove even towards the end where there's more space than drums biggrin.gif
