> 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.

Hey Marc, I guess that Wednesday's v-chat session sparked something in you, hasn't it? smile.gif

Well, tell me man, what do you feel your gaps in theory are at the moment? Or better yet, what would you like to know how to do?

Cosmin


Yes I was really impressed with both your chat and Darius his chat also made a lot of sense. I just really want to get theory down to get me motivated to write own songs/riffs/solos.

But starting at the start. I have learned some scales over the neck, I dont even know what Ive learned, I ussually play the blues scale.
So I was thinking of starting with the major scale en then work with these modes. But I have no clue where to start. So just treat me as I have never heard of theory and I will be fine biggrin.gif .

Also everyone says I should start off with something else, so I prefer sticking to one method and thats yours.
Since this is the end of my schoolblock I can finally get active again here. :'D

Awesome Cosmin, I am doing it as of now. I will report all my progress !.
Thank you very much for the video !
wohoo

As I am practicing I am seeing the a pattern when I start at C on every string except for the B string because this one is tuned different.
My question is : why did they decide to tune the B string different in relation to the other strings. Does it have a practical use ?

On the offside , how do you reach the high notes with your voice , my voice can't reach this high. My voice just snaps.

I just made a quick reply, The quality of the build in camera is really low, Have my logitech at my own place ( home at weekend )
But I decided to learn all the positions of the C notes tonight. I didnt include my singing haha, trust me, I am doing it tongue.gif

So I started at the C at different spots and worked up untill the next C.

Hey Thanks again for the video, It is really motivating when someone is talking directly using a video. Anyways. I remember the C notes of the first 12 frets. ( ofcourse the next 12 are the same, but its a mental thing ). And I am currently doing what I did yesterday but I now from the C going back to the lower C. So downwards.

I am also trying to combine it as you say in the video from C D E F G A B -> Next C on fretboard and play further, Next C etc. Untill I did most of the C's untill the 12th fret. I am going to make a video response on Monday or Tuesday cuz I think it is cool to do videoreports instead of long typing.

I must say that I have never been this motivated to learn this as I am now. Thanks man !

So today I have my last "real" examday at school , just a practical thing, and then its time for guitarrr.
Yesterday I repeated the excercise that I did on Saturday + Sunday.

I got my Webcam working, only need to get a way to record the sound properly. Maybe ill go to a audiostore after school.
So I have made a routine out of it.

I forgot to mention that I am also worked on this lesson for about 2 months now. Since my pink used to be really weak :

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/move_y...le_finger!/

I will try to record something biggrin.gif

So here is a take of the lesson ( Its work in progress XD )
As you can hear I missed some notes, really want to get this one perfect.

So this one is shot with the new webcam and the build in mic

Hey mate! If you could solve the sound clipping when recording with the cam, it would be great - otherwise everything looks good and I can see what you are doing very clearly.

My advice for this piece: Slow down!

You can't take it at that speed yet and you need to focus on the following:

- have the same strength in your attack regardless of what fingers you are using - that's the whole purpose of the lesson, right? smile.gif
- timing - it must be perfect!
- no more missed notes wink.gif

Let's hear a take at 75% of the actual speed focusing on these two aspects, shall we?

Cosmin

Yess, working on that. In the meantime I am getting the C notes in the area after the 12th fret and combine the C's all over the fretboard

update on the singing , I was doing Hallelujah by Jeff Buckley and the thing is that if I sing loud enough, then my voice gets some kind of gain/power that I can not get when singing at a lower volume.

I can reach way more notes when singing out loud instead of humping along. I am not really comfortably at singing , so I am trying to get out of my comfort zone.

Hey Marc smile.gif It's normal, because your muscles and your body, are working with you - the more back muscle power you put into your singing, the more louder you can get wink.gif

I will shoot a video for you and show yo ua secret power gaining technique when singing biggrin.gif

It is also important to record yourself, simply for the sake of doing it and then observe what you are doing smile.gif Look at it as you would look in a mirror - when you will like what you see, it means it's good smile.gif

Thanks, I am pushing these oranges to the limit. I think I understand what is going on here and I have to say it helps
getting it. I also viewed some videos on youtube on the topic on the range of the voice and how to improve the range.

I am going to have a big guitar / sing session now and post tonight on my progress .

Thanks for the video !
