> 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.

Don't know what else to say. I've been studying that stuff of Ben's and I have the concept of what Legato is but I can no way play it like Ben can. mellow.gif Even switching is horribly slow. I Guess this is a normal processing of learning. ohmy.gif

Cosmin I don't know how taxes in the UK go but I hate the U.S. with a passion dude. When I found out what % of my 401k they were taking it's just robbery !! mad.gif I'm really thinking about maybe Germany or London. Not knowing either one is living in Europe better than the US. Some are telling me stuff about running water??? What the hells that about?? Is there running water for showers etc... I can't imagine it worse here then there so enlighten me Cosmin !! Where a good place to live over there where there are a lot of Musicians ????

Take your time with legato Mike wink.gif like every technique, it won't come up that fast smile.gif

Regarding the taxes... I'm sorry to hear that it's the same everywhere - imagine that in Romania, there are people living with about 230 dollars a month and they are paying taxes too sad.gif Europe is not too tax friendly mate...wouldn't know what to tell ya exactly though sad.gif

Yeah I heard that Cosmin. I'm still practicing lightly though you would think my situation would give me a better attitude to practice but it's getting me down mate. I keep replaying it over and over in my head. I'm almost to the point to where I can pull a pretty good song out of it. I just need to let it go. Once and for all. Yeah it seems the whole world is going to hell in a hand basket. Guess it's a good thing I have my love for my guitars and playing with my wife. I just need to get through this hump. It seems like I was practicing more when I was working. lol... Thanks for listening Cosmin.

Move to Somalia. They have a non-effective central government and zero infrastructure, so you really don't have to pay any taxes. Enjoy what the tax free society brings you! laugh.gif

US is probably the best. Otherwise, in my country, you are not bound to pay taxes but offices do pay them and you know what, they take away perhaps 25% of what you earn but then there is no water, no electricity, no good roads, no security and you have to spend your own money to construct any damages that govt should be looking after. In addition to that, whatever you buy you get to pay 13% more tax. And everything is imported and prices are sky rocketing. Imagine that. smile.gif

HAHAHA.... it almost sounds like Ciudad Juarez, MX - We have a house over there if it's not been taking over by the cartels already.
We live on the U.S. Side of the border though right now. I guess where I am at is the best place being that I still get to enjoy all the good things about Juarez.... ie pharmacies and Family and still get to live in a fairly safe city across the border. I guess when it comes down to it you don't have to care a rat's ass for the country you live in. Mudbone your a trip dude.... I'm still laughing. Hey dude I'm not sure I could find a plug for my AMPS and equipment there... he he he he....
