Hi Alex.
First of all thanks for helping out !
awesome, my goals are alternate fast picking ( dream theater style )
my weekness is alternate speed picking, my strongest points are sweeping and legato shredding.
haha I don't really have favourite guitar players I love them all. ( Steve Lukather, John Petrucci,) but my best
sounding hero is Marcus Lavendell, He was here a long time ago I think.

Note : I haven't got a active subscribtion at GMC bacause I am underaged in my country for a credit card
, won't mean I can't do lessons because I do most stuff by ear.
because sometimes instructors use youtube that comes in handy for me.

thank you for your time !

ps : my soundcloud filled with pink floyd for now : www.soundcloud.com/marc-thalen

oh and before I forget, my weakest point is theory I guess, I would love to know how
to improvise on progressive metal. When I try to do it now I just try every note and if that note sounds
right I write it down to find out the scale. But can't find the logic haha.

Great! I am very excited to start working with you!
I have a backing track for you!
Here it is:
http://soundcloud.com/alex-feather-akimov/guitar
First I would like to give you some hands workout exercises those will develop your alternative picking technique very fast!!!
The trick is to practice those at a very slow tempo and get your hands connected!
It is very important to master mechanical exercises you will get great results and will see progress very very fast!

This backing track will be used for your future assignments!
For this exercise you should use metronome only!
Sorry I didn't make myself clear!
I am preparing arpeggio connections assignment for you mixed with alternative picking!
It is gonna be very very fun and challenging!

Maybe you can create a little video without a backing track? Just so I can see your progress?

Cool! How was your holiday? Where did you go?
The noise can be because of the monitor/computer frequencies try to move around the room and see if it will go away!
It happens sometime!

sorry to let you wait so longg. Im more back then ever smile.gif
that picking excercise worked very well. But it takes really a lot of time to learn it without watching the tab.

as you noticed I tried to learn all the fretnotes because I hear all these guitarist say that it is really important.

Further I have been busy with my progressive metal band : https://www.facebook.com/Infinutum
And I just finished my ending exam for high school.

Sooo yesss. Im ready for a new excercise Alex biggrin.gif
