> 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 Cosmin! First off, thank you so much!
Second, I am familliar to AP and Sweep Picking, however my Sweeping is very weak, and kind of Avarage on the AP area.
With Sweeping, I can hit the notes on time and also make the pulloffs\hammerons on time and make them sound, but slow and
robotic like, I would like to make this a second nature tongue.gif
As for the Alterante Picking, I do this as a regular basis, but never improved. I need to be more precise and faster, mainly to nail
faster licks for Fusion~JazzRock soloing.

I would also like to develop my legato playing and tapping, but I think I am getting ahed of myself.

biggrin.gif Hey man! Let's focus on sweeping and AP for starters - legato and tapping go hand in hand, so I think that after we first gain some ground with the first two we can go on with the other two tongue.gif

Tell me what sort of tempo feels relaxed for you in AL and sweep? Can you perform at that tempo for long?

Okay.
AP and 2 string Sweep Picking is about 95-100BPM when picking 16th notes.
3 string Sweep Picking is about 80-85BPM. (Haven't got to more than 3 string Sweep picking)
That's about it.

Thanks,

Amitai.

Hey again Amitai! Check this out wink.gif I got an uber lesson from Ben, which focuses on picking arpeggios:
https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Picking-Arpeggios/ it'll work the hell out of your right hand and it'll help coordination BIG TIME. Why don't you try and push this one, as fast and clean as possible? Let me know about your impressions at first glance smile.gif

Alright, here's my take.
Please don't mind the sound, I just got Guitar Rig 5 and still having trouble.
By the way, I'm playing on a Gibson Les Paul Standart modded by Larry Corsa.

Hey mate! This sounds very good!! biggrin.gif Now, this can be transformed into an awesome right hand exercise if sped up and played clean wink.gif can you place let's say 15 BPM over the original tempo and work against a metronome? If you can record it, t'would be awesome!

Not bad mate, but there are a few hick-ups here and there, but you can do better biggrin.gif let's see another take after you have practiced the shifts with your left hand only against the metronome at the desired speed smile.gif add the right hand after that and let's see what we get wink.gif

Deal?

And...! I have a question.
Can I send you something I recorded and you'll give me your opinion? Thanks.

Hey Cosmin! Thanks, I will record both the task and the part I wrote in a few days.
I will be over at my friends house until Tuesday so I won't be able to do it until then,
but I'll have my guitar because we have band rehearsals. So I will have time to practice and work on the task you gave me (:


Have a nice weekend. laugh.gif

Hey Cosmin, I'm back. Haven't played seriously for about 2 weeks or so, so I'm a bit rusty.
Recorded this 2nd 120BPM take for Ben's lesson 'Picking Arpeggios'.

How have you benn anyways?

Hey man! Things are good here smile.gif just celebrated Easter with my family and now it's back to work!

Mate, the take is not bad, but please take care to tune up your guitar and try to have the same dynamic for each note smile.gif this is fairly tricky as the tone is clean and the fluctuations are easier to spot wink.gif

Anyway, I would also like you to start working on this one: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/solo-guit...picking-thirds/

Picking intervals is always a popular choice in soloing and thirds are usually the best to start with - how a bout this drill mate?

Hey Amitai! Long time no see mate biggrin.gif well, for a first take it's clean and pretty tight with a few exceptions where you tend to give it a shuffle feel tongue.gif keep up the constant timing and you'll be there wink.gif

Can you record it against the backing track?

Do you mean Muris's backing track? the 100BPM one?
I guess I can record it but at 100BPM it will be kinda sloppy.
I'll try and post it.

Thanks,

Hey Amitai, take your time man smile.gif first, use a slower version of the backing track while recording, k? Just to get the feel of working with a rhythmic support while you're tracking your guitar smile.gif let me know how it feels and when you got a take at the slowest pace available with the backing tracks, place it here smile.gif

Hey Cosmin, I'm bumping this since I have moved back to my old place after a few months of traveling.
So now I have the time, and after you made that video about becoming a better lead guitarist, I knew you
could help me a lot more.

If you have the time, I'd love to continue this journey.


Amitai.
