> 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.

Wow dude biggrin.gif Sounds like you've been really busy! Out of what I can catch, it looks and sounds like you have done a great job here!


Thanks cosmin, Yes I really wanted to spend every minute that I had of free time ( which isn't too much, due school ) on guitar.
I have set up my usb interface to work with guitarrig and I am finding out how to set up the guitarrig vst in Mixcraft.

I am also still working on Technical Difficulties, which I want to be better than it is now. And I am still using youtube to jam over backingtrack in C major to get in in my head.

When I have time I would really like to write down how I used my muscle memory to remind this piece.

I feel I have to thank you for motivating me again a couple of weeks ago wink.gif

Well, I think for the most part the memorizing of the shapes, because when I looked first at the tablature I was overwhelmed. But I saw a pattern in the shapes that made it easier. For the last part that I am working on its also more or less the memorizing. Of course there are these fast licks in the solo which requires some fast alternate picking.

Another thing is that there is no way to practice this 100 times a day as after playing it 5 times my hands get tired of playing and needing to take a break.

but to answer your question, the hardest part of the whole song is actually the beginning ( the alternate ) ( 5 - 7 - 9 E ) ( 5 - 7 - 9 A ) Going up.
its quite hard to get it in sync. But the thing I learned from this song is that motivation will help a lot. And I practiced it with a metronome ( which I don't do often )

Mate, now, I hope that you are more convinced than ever, that practicing with a metronome will only take you up on the ladder of evolution as a player!

Good going wink.gif Indeed, out of what I can figure out, that ascending run has to be tight as hell in order for it to sound great and trust me 5, focused takes are good enough, rather than 10 takes, during which you also watch TV or so.

Looking forward to see the final vid biggrin.gif

Hey Cosmin, I have a question. Was watching this video where they improvise over"Have a blast" from Periphery , They use the Chord progression to improvise. Now my question is : They obviously are using more scales than one. Are they switching the scales when the chord changes or how do they do it ?

Thanks Cosmin biggrin.gif

hey Marc! I will give it one more listen with fresh ears tomorrow and let you know what I found - at this time it seems like they are sticking to one scale. But taking into account that I am uber tired, my ears can play tricks smile.gif

Hey mate, out of what I figured they are playing C minor and sometimes C melodic minor (not so sure tho) and throwing in some chromatic runs here an there.

The chords are clearly harmonized out of the C minor scale - C D Eb F G Ab Bb -> steps 1, 4 and 5 give us the C min, F min and G min chords.

Are you planning to build something based on this track?
