> 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.

i have no idea. I use to jam with friends for hours, so coming with stuff on spot isn't that big of a deal, of course my technical part still restrains me from doing X things, and welll coming with solos in the spot is something different, pretty mediocre in fact.

One thing that makes me worry, it's my equipment. It isn't really that great, i mean i have manage to do a successful guig with it in a small bar for like 30-40 people. Don't know if they are expecting me to have like 4 story high boogie setup.

Thing i know about them, is that they are hoping - they want- to start workin on a EP in 2 months.

Well, if they will like jamming with u, they'll probably tell you if they think you should upgrade your gear and then you'll know what to do wink.gif

In the mean time, be sure to have fresh strings and be warmed up when you get there. What did they say they actually want a rhythm player or a soloist?

They said - we want fresh blood!.

Well, i gave a listen to some of their stuff (they have 3 songs out), it seems mostly rhythm stuff, there isn't really much of petruccian stuff, just double stop kind of solos. i could probably try to get some down by ear.

"Dia Cizento", is probably my favorite.

I have a question!

So i was studying Time Signatures and stuff.


All the: 2/4 where you have two beat each bar , each being a crotchet, to 3/4 4/4...so on, but then i came across the 3/8 3 beats each one being a quaver, it makes sense, But then 4/8 4 beats being each a quaver.

Now 4/8 is basically the same as 2/4, it's the same length the only difference is how you count the beats.

MY question is, why do we have these 2 variations? why don't we like just simplify eveything to one?

Same goes for 2/2 and 4/4....and so on, so on.

Hey Renato,

It's all due to the fact that we have various pulses - the quarter notes, the 8th notes, 16th notes and so on provide various pulses in a rhythm so, if everything would not be differentiated, we would not have any idea about what sort of pulse we would have in that specific type of time signature.

See, in here the drummer accentuates beats 1 and 3 with the kick drum while playing 2 and 4 with the snare, everything being backed up by the hi-hats playing 8th notes. But it's still 4/4 because he accentuates 4 quarter notes in the bar smile.gif Am I making sense?
