> 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.

Hello C-Maestro smile.gif

Hehe if I am a guitar lord then what are you ?? A guitar God smile.gif Ok here is my surprise for you:


There are still some mistakes but in take 2 I will fix them. This piece is nice for me because it is easy enough and has lots of bending and vibrato.

Wow! Duuuude biggrin.gif This is awesome!! There slight mishaps here and there but nothing major! You have improved A LOT! Mate, just take care to be as wide as possible everywhere and reach the correct pitches! Let's see number two and then get it in the REC zone!!

I'm so happy biggrin.gif

Hey C-Maestro smile.gif

I feel like I am really making some progress with my playing here..

Ok here is my second take. I think I corrected the mistakes in this take but still there could possibly be improvements

Glad to be able to help out man!

This take is definitely better and I think it technically correct! What you need now is MASSIVE playing with bends and vibrato to get a nice flowing touch - but this take is great REC material! Let's get it in there shall we? wink.gif

Hey C-Maestro smile.gif

I prepared one more take. I will put this one in REC.. I really want to improve my feeling, vibrato and articulation in general and you are the perfect player to learn this from. I want to have this MASSIVE playing ability smile.gif . Let me know if you come up with some lesson for me, otherwise I will continue with Ben's Vibrato Odyssey No:2..

See you in the REC with this one smile.gif

First of all, thanks again for choosing me to be at your side on this journey Mert!

Seconds, give yourself time with the vibrato and bends smile.gif You have a great talent for guitar playing and if you practice and explore, you will gain a high level of proficiency with the instrument. The next step? Getting the music inside you out into the world smile.gif

Hey C-man smile.gif Thank you ! Here is another take. You can see my fretting hand here. Also I tweaked my tone here, it is more dry. Ben was complaining about palm mutings so maybe here they sound better ?

Hey O-man! This is great! What Ben meant (I think) is the fact that you don't have that heavy chug chug which is due to the fact that you still need to search a spot where the palm muting will offer that effect. Otherwise, as the french will say.. 'Chapeau bas!' biggrin.gif

Hey Mert! Glad to hear from you in 2013 mate and also glad to know you want to join the ship for the collab biggrin.gif

The whole ensemble sounds very promising, but I would like you to tighten and clean it up and focus on getting those bends in pitch - you can post intermediary takes in here, but I would like you to post the final take in the collab thread smile.gif

If you have more questions, please do tell biggrin.gif

Cosmin

Hey Cosmin smile.gif

How are you doing ?? I am doing well. New year started off very fast for me, I have been very busy with work. But things are getting back to normal slowly.. For guitar, well, I haven't had much motivation lately. So in order to get over that I thought of giving myself a goal for 2013. So here is what I would like to achieve: you know my level and how I play pretty well now. Think of my alternate picking level. It may not be extremely good but I am happy about it and I can use AP very comfortably when I play, improvise or come up with a solo. My goal is to achieve same kind of level at sweep picking.. Will you help me achieve this goal in 2013 ? smile.gif I am looking for some suggestions to start working on this goal.. I think with your help I can master sweep picking ..

Howdy Mert smile.gif If that's what you wish for, we'll go for it - I am sure that with your diligence, you can do a great job with this technique as well smile.gif

Let's start out by choosing a simple one and seeing a take on it so i may discover how you fare, ok?

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Sweeps_Major_and_Minor/

then you can try this one from Muris - it's not the easiest thing, but it takes you through many situations smile.gif so I'd be happy if you would go at it slow at first, to get acquainted to the shapes smile.gif

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/solo-guit...picking-lesson/

How does this sound to you mate?

Cosmin
