> 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.

No man, in the beginning there's only a half tone bend on a single string biggrin.gif what sort of strings are you using on the Fender?

0.10 thinnest string, I think the drop tuning ruined my bending a bit but the guitar is in need of a setup and I will only send my Ibanez for that. But I think I will work it out, it sounds really nice actually got a good sound to it.

Well I think I will work it out though, the song involves 30 min of my practice schedule today hope to learn it today, then of course I need more time to get it right 100 %.

Didnt get anything done yesterday but here is my schedule today.

30min Theory
30min IRL teatchers task (working on a song with some cool chords)
30min Learn last part of a song im transcribing
30min Cosmin lesson
After that, guitar free time biggrin.gif Where I Will work on my own song.

Looks good Erik! Mate, bending with 11-56's in drop C has developed a lot of stamina and power in my hands so it's not bad exercise, unless you want quick results, which are not possible.

Let me know how it goes smile.gif

Well I have been told sometimes, "how can you use such thick strings" and Im only using .10 I dont think that thick even, and they at the guitar tech are using .08 ohmy.gif cause it made tone bending and colouring much easier.

Well I dont agree with them I like thicker strings, maybe I should use .11 or should I stick to .10 ? When you get used to it you develop more strenght and bending is no problem.

Also cosmin, how do you play scales?

from the loose strings to the 5th fret I got printed in my head all the names of notes I can also read this not easily, when playing classical, jesus you played everything up there xD So there I play from C to C, G to G etc, but also the whole "box" to get every note included in the scale, which is quite an unorthodox way to learn scales, but I dont see anything wrong in playing the box

Hey man smile.gif lighter strings are indeed better for coloring and articulation but the tone gets nicer with thicker strings wink.gif 0.10's are very good I think, but for drop C riffing stuff - 0.11 - 0.54 or 0.56 is much better.

Regarding scales, I usually can make my way through the notes, as I pretty much know them all over the neck, the most interesting part is experimenting with patterns and positions smile.gif this is a neverending journey man, I mean the more you find and experiment with your own ideas, the more able you will be to use them freely.

We can develop this further if you'd like smile.gif

Cosmin might I suggest a rythm/right hand focus lesson in Drop C instead of Siepens lesson? Since Id like to keep my fender in Drop C for a while, being overcareful with the neck..

Sure mate biggrin.gif Go for the Metal Metrics 4 wink.gif it's a good combo of riffing and articulation - you will have a lot of work with your strings biggrin.gif

Hey cosmin, i Had som luck my ibanez got the be brought to my countries ibanez tech and it will be fixed for free ohmy.gif
So I will only have my fender for I while and I have to have it in standart tuning all the time so cant finish this lessons this month sad.gif

So how about we work with the turkish march? Me and my sister (her on piano) will maybe play it live sometime have to learn it!
I have looked at it before but quit learning around 0:56. Not easy there! have to use a metronome, but didnt quite get the rythm and the beat to learn that part by metronome by some reason it became difficult.

I will do a quick record of what I got so far

Hey Erik smile.gif no problem mate - if you finish them and play them well, I am contempt. Let's see the recording of the Turkish March and see what we can do with it wink.gif

Coming up tomorrow, I learned the first part like 1 year ago, but that section i mentioned is just so hard, its so fluent, seems so easy.
Have tried practiced it with metronome but didnt get it right!

Hehe I missed that ending C two times.
Well needs to work on this part as well of course but I know have to lay focus on the part that comes right after.
I can play it 100 % but its not clean at all and you loose yourself in the song after a few seconds u know what im talking about wink.gif

playing it on the 100 bpm track is fine though. So how will I practice this the best way?

hey mate this sounds good and your movements seem very economic! there are a few notes which are not distinguishable due to the fact that you rushed through them a bit. I think that you have to slow down a bit and get EVERYTHING as tight and accurate as possible and then speed up smile.gif anyway, it's a difficult lesson and I think you are doing a very good job so far!

I use a kind of unorthodox method I slow down the backing track instead of using a metronome ohmy.gif
Right now at 70 % at the hard part going for 75 tommorrow.

Its not like extreme neoclassical speedwise but it is so fluent at that part and requiers some real picking stamina = my weakness.

Mate, I think stamina is more difficult to tackle than actual speed, so yeah, I can totally feel you smile.gif

Well then there is something called warmup biggrin.gif
I will mark in bold where I think I scew up sometimes:


-9-10-9-7-|-----7--------------------------------|
----------|--10---10-9-7-10-9-7-6-7-9-6----------|
----------|-----------------------------6-8-10-6-|
----------|--------------------------------------|
----------|--------------------------------------|
----------|--------------------------------------|


S S S S S S S S S S S
---------------------7-9-8-9-
-----------9-10-9-10---------
--11-10-11-------------------
-----------------------------
-----------------------------
-----------------------------
d-u--d-u-u-d
We have in the start: 9-10-9-7---7
-10

You see? econmy picking there is maybe no the best, I should do alternates there instead.
As you can see in my vid I use economy while descending to higher strings.

But I think alternate picking for that part is the best.

Hey Erik! I am not too much of a fan of economy picking, so yes I would go for AP myself, but it depends on what you feel like. What feels comfier for you and also brings out the desired result? biggrin.gif

Hi Comsin.
I can get this guitar: http://www.thomann.de/gb/esp_horizon_nt_bk.htm
for only 1000 euros.

It is a new product, how might have a scratch somewhere, but it is in new condition and has all guarantees?
What do you think?

I will sell my Fender and get this one instead.
