> 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 Renato! Technically you are doing great wink.gif Now, decreasing the tempo of these tracks, will allow you to become more groovy - this is what I'd like to hear from you now smile.gif Use the same grooves, a lower tempo and try to be as balanced as possible - make me nod my head to your music mate smile.gif

Hey Renato! Your flow is good mate - the only observation I will talk about, is the fact that in the second video, there were certain spots where you rushed a bit - just take care to stay in the pocket tongue.gif

I'll leave you some more time to play around with these and then, we'll add some new elements in the funky grooves, k?

Great wink.gif Just let me know when you are ready to make a leap of faith biggrin.gif If you have seen 'Inception' you must love the way it sounds from that dude's voice (he also played Katsumoto, the samurai leader in 'The last Samurai')

biggrin.gif Ready huh? biggrin.gif Here we go:

Extract all the dead notes from the grooves and play only the 16th notes where you have chords smile.gif In the spaces where you had dead notes (the ones with X) you will play nothing biggrin.gif Just keep the silence and keep the groove in the pocket wink.gif

How's this for a little challenge smile.gif

Hey Renato!

I think you can become a very groovy player if we stick CLOSE to the funky business wink.gif I will make sure that you have all the right tools, but what I need from you is NOT to stop, ok?

Once you get to the amp, my listening experience will be most likely enriched biggrin.gif

Let me know when you are ready, ok?

Cosmin
