> 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.

My friends! Since a lot of you requested practice schedules, I thought I might try and help everyone out, at being organized and having a keen eye on their progress smile.gif

How do we do that? -> By being very conscious of our progress of course! A while ago, I posted a thread about a practice journal:

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_fo...showtopic=39506

You can download it here and start using it for the everything you will have in your schedule smile.gif

Here's how to do it:

1) We'll pick up an exercise for a certain technique or choose a GMC lesson and pick out a specific part out of it
2) Create a link in the Excell file towards that file or internet link (Using the Insert Hyperlink option in Excell) - see the steps below:



3) Establish the speed you can play the exercise/ phrase at ANY GIVEN TIME (that means not being warmed up)
4) Establish your desired speed
5) Start practicing and see at which speed you can push yourself
6) Write everything down in the Practice Journal, for each exercise
7) Focus on always being relaxed, clean, tight and in timing
8) TRANSFORM THIS JOURNAL INTO YOUR GUITAR PLAYING MIRROR biggrin.gif

Now, I am waiting your thoughts on this as well as some buzzes from the guys who want to discuss on their practice schedule!

let's rock dudes!!

Cosmin

Freakin' perfect good sir!

Man Cosmin, I'm pretty jazzed about using this system, I want to get started using it then I'll kinda mold the rest of my practice routine using it as a benchmark. Finding, implementing, and trusting the right benchmark is the absolute key to achieving goals in life, no matter what it is. smile.gif This is good

Thanks Cosmin!! This is really simple yet very useful. A simple suggestion: adding maybe on another sheet something like a "My Notes" tab could also be beneficial. We could write things like responses from the instructors, our ideas for improvement and such..

I will definitely use this smile.gif

The idea is very good and I think it should be approached just the same as the one with the tabs tongue.gif use the Hyperlink in order to redirect straight to a little text file where you can collect all the notes and discussions on a particular exercise smile.gif

I created that tab as well biggrin.gif check it out guys!

Hey that's nice, how come I've never had the idea of having a practising journal! This may be very handy, i'll try it. THanks for this.
