> 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.

btw, could you upload a GP file or some sort of tab for your take? Would be interesting to see how you approached it


Mate, I have a better idea - How about if we turn this into an ear training exercise and I send you the separate guitar tracks wink.gif so that you can figure out the riffage. I can assist of course smile.gif

Are you up for the challenge?

haha yea sure tongue.gif
i gotta warn you, it might take quite a while... on a scale from 1-10 i'm a 4 at plucking individual notes (under a certain tempo) and close to 1-2 for chords... but sure, challenges are what we grow by doing, thats why im here i guess tongue.gif

So our working list currently;

Me to do;
5/4 at 75%
Bens Legato at 75%
Pluck your riff when you send the guitar track
Start second riff

You to do;
Send guitar track
Vocal line

Thats pretty extensive tongue.gif i'll have more time available when I go back home late November, but what I send may change as I have a different rig back home, and different guitars (too much hassle and costs bringing everything back and forth Norway-Australia...)

Is there anything else on our schedule/"to do" that I missed?

cheers

Hey mate! What a list! biggrin.gif I'll send the tracks a bit later on today, as I got caught up with stuff regarding my band's video - we're shooting tomorrow and there are still a lot of things to be taken care of smile.gif

np bud, good luck with the video biggrin.gif

the 5/4 solo full speed (felt comfortable enough with it)
did about 10-15 takes, this is the best one of them. im fairly happy with it. i drop it one place as u'll probably hear, but it was the best of the ones I did so... tongue.gif

will get back to you about bens legato but i gotta say - my fingers are aching... even that first one requires a lot of stamina tongue.gif

Hey man!! I'll get to ya about the tracks and the violin pluggin biggrin.gif I didn't forget about it wink.gif

Anyway, your take seems correct, but there would be two main spots where you need to work on a bit more:

- articulation: there are some bends which seem unsure, especially when you don't reach the correct pitch perfectly
- timing - it is good, but you need to interpret the piece now, that you have got it in your system smile.gif

The 5/4 time signature is not necessarily the easiest thing, but I think that if you get the pulse, you can understand it and apply it in more contexts rather than just this lesson.

Do we have a deal, mate?

Cheerios!

took me a while, but I'm back.
Please upload both your tracks again so i can download and start "decoding". I remember hearing your acoustic part, and I think I can get some way if you give me the first few notes... Finding the start is the hardest I think, so maybe you can help me out on these starts, and i can try on others later ?

Excited to get back at this biggrin.gif

Cheers

Hey man
i've been busy with so many things, and have completely forgot the mentoring thing, and for that i'm sorry, had really been hoping to get somwhere through the winter, but alas, that did not happen.

I'll try to get some good time management in the next couple of weeks before returning to australia, where my working facilities as far as music goes are not as good as home... but we'll see how I can fare with it wink.gif

cheers smile.gif

Howdy mate! As i said before, life has this annoying habit of getting in our way, doesn't it... u let me know, as I am here and all you have to do is write me smile.gif

How's music/ guitar playing going otherwise?

Been at pluckin' for a while, but can't figure it out... I think this is was sort of "running before even crawling" thing, bit too soon.
And music/guitar has been really slow, just been busy doing other stuff.

Thinking this time I'll stay dedicated is something I've thought many times before, but we'll see how it goes...

but could you send me the tabs for the tracks, I'll re-record them myself and try to arrange it into a song?
However, I don't have any drum looper anymore, it crashed too often to be of any good use, so only got samples of individual drums now, so making drum tracks are way hard and slower than they were before :S
