> 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.

Goodd, When I have a day off work I am going to record the covers I have learned so far.
My sister bought a canon camera so I might borrow that one. Oh yea I got work at a
Gasstation in summer so I might have money for a 7 string biggrin.gif but currently I am listening and covering Periphery and
Eden from TesseracT. Still playing about 3 hours a day biggrin.gif

Sounds good to me man!! biggrin.gif Playing 3 focused hours a day can offer great results - you're only learning songs or are you also doing any other exercises?

Looking forward to see some vids from ya wink.gif

Damnit, I don't have any equipment in here to record ( holiday , I am my parents house ) however I got a new phone so I
am going to try out how that works out tomorrow evening. I think one of the licks is something I want to progress upon.

No biggie man, use the phone - I think I have a good idea, regarding how you can master a lick and place it in your quiver for universal usage wink.gif

I heard Steve Vai talk about this last week - he called it 'conquering your limitations'

So I finally managed to get access to the forum back biggrin.gif
I went to Musicstore in Koln today to look at some shiny gear , played some PRS, some Sterling and Ibanez but
came to the conclusion that I didn't any of these guitars more comfortable to play than my own, maybe its just because I am used to it



I also redid some settings on my boss gt5 to get a better tone, took it back to basic without delays, chorus etc and then rebuilded again.
Tomorrow I am going to get some wood to block my tremolo on my Rg550 to get it to drop the tuning.

And yes, I still have to shoot video's over this week. But as said, I worked out one of the licks that I talked about and I am looking forward to let you hear it. but it has to be perfect smile.gif

Btw Cool video ! I saw your video with the other band, I really like it, You will become famous biggrin.gif

Hey Marc!

Glad you had the opportunity to test the axes and it looks like you are a busy guy smile.gif Now, blocking that trem is a great idea - what do you plan on performing with the drop tuning?

That lick doesn't have to be perfect smile.gif I need to correct something, right? biggrin.gif And thank you - that song used to rock my childhood!

Yes holiday for me is working to get money to live as a student biggrin.gif I am planning on rewatching your videochat with Drag the waters and play it in the drop tuning and some other songs from Textures.

I am also practising On the backs of angels from Dream Theater. I really like the song. And I am trying to learn this song by ear by my former guitar instructor



yes yes busy times !
