> 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.

Well I am applying this do-re-mi thing to all the C's that I find and that is working. takes a lot of time to actually remember it
because of that stupid b string. otherwise I had a nice pattern that I could apply.

I understand the idea of scales now, I am only questioning how I can remember all those notes, or isn't this necesary ?

Marc, the only way in which you will remember them in such a way that you can use them is by playing and being a bit conscious about what you are playing. For instance, you can try and spot notes in the phrases that you play and memorize the notes and the way they sound against the harmonic context smile.gif

There are a lot of ways, but in time we shall talk about as many as possible.

For instance, I tried to parallel sing all the notes in a solo so that I may train myself into being able to easily express what I hear in my head

Let's take things easy and progress will come up for certain wink.gif

Ahoy Marc! Timing is great and the bends reach the pitch pretty nicely, but take care at the quirky bends at the beginning of the first part wink.gif and the vibrato should be wider and not so aggressive - let the note breathe first and then vibrate to offer it sustain!

Good start mate!
