> 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.

So here is the idea I had over the progression that I had made.





It was played with the progression as backingtrack but its almost unhearable.
For completeness here is the link to the original vid :



I was thinking about using effects on both the pattern on the progression and the progression itself but Ill add that flavour when I have all my parts together. I am also thinking about a chorus. I want it to have some kind of twist in it. oh and I did not even mention adding a second guitar that plays the part higher. Got a lot of ideas. I wrote them all down and I will wait for your advice to guide me in this epic journey to songwriting.

Now it has really become a secret guitar laboratory

Hehe! Indeed it is man - simply because the thumb pushes against the neck, thus offering more strength and support for the other 4 fingers! biggrin.gif Our friend.. Physics biggrin.gif

Yes , I will record all my ideas this weekend and post them here. Have some things to work out. Again this thing was based on 4 notes and I just added the 2nd note because a lot of songs do that to make it sound more interesting instead of powerchords.

And I was thinking to let that riff come back at the end off the song but instead of going back at the end from 15 - 12 , 10-8 on D
replacing this with 15 - 17 - 12 , 10 - 12 - 8.

youll hear from me in the next couple of days biggrin.gif

Hey mate - this is a mix between major and minor pentatonic or blues mode

1 2 3 5 6
1 b3 4 b5 5 b7

I recommend these lessons if you want to know how to smoothly blend the two scales in this type of context smile.gif

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/mixing...n_blues_part_1/ <- search for the rest of the parts and you won't be sorry! There are 5 of them here at GMC

So , as said. Life got a bit complicated the last week. nevertheless I chose to put my thoughts on one thing : guitarplaying.
I just wanted to record Technical difficulties by pg, I basically screwed up and decided to continue recording and somehow I
think its pretty funny what came out at the end. Let me know what you think biggrin.gif

From Thursday on I will have less to worry about and become active biggrin.gif

Hey Marc, it looks like it has good timing as an ensemble, but unfortunately I can't hear a lot of the details, simply because the recording quality is not that awesome..

I think there are spots in which you need to practice slower though, because I can hear notes being blurred, even if the sound quality is not that great.

I would like to hear a new recording in which the guitar would be more clear, so, what do you think? smile.gif

Cosmin

as told I am also looking for a new microphone for recording my guitar. are there any mics that you recommend ?
are there special types for recording electric guitar, or should I just buy a usb interface again.

my budget is 50 euros

Mate, if you have a good amp, you may get a mic and I strongly suggest you to have a good read here: http://audio.tutsplus.com/tutorials/record...he-home-studio/

If you don't have an amp and can't crank it up at home, the USB interface will do far greater justice, or you can try an AMT SS20 Preamp like I am using smile.gif All tube wink.gif Do you know it? I've posted reviews around here and my lessons are recorded with it in a proportion of 90%

Well my setup now is that the sound is going through my boss gt-3 to 2 sony monitors that gives me a very nice setup. In my previous setup I had my pod x3 which had a build in usb interface.

I checked the link and I think the the shure sm57 is what I am looking for, I might even record vocals with that , it seems to get great reviews. I am going to the local shop to ask if they sell it and otherwise I am going to look for it secondhand.

See you tonight at the chat !
Edit : missed chat since this was one of the only days that it was actually above 20 degrees in the Netherlands,
So went to grab some beers in town.
