> 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 thanks smile.gif

Ok so here are a few random bands I like: Red, thousand foot krutch, Three days grace, breaking benjamin, the devil wears prada, of mice and men, august burns red, the word alive, as i lay dying, a plea for purging, and so on...as you can see it's more modern rock not classic.

I have a seven-string Dean vendetta, and a Crate amp because my brother took my fender amp sleep.gif

Hehehe biggrin.gif You got to the right place smile.gif

I am also a big fan of modern rock and this is what I am playing with both my bands. Tell me Grace, can you record something for me so that i may see and hear your playing?

If you don't have anything recorded yet, I was thinking you could tackle this Breakin Benjamin style lesson here: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Breaking-Benjamin-Style/

What do you think?

Looking forward to it!

I was initially amazed by the fact that people in Puerto Rico are listening to 'Of mice and men' laugh.gif But then the 'NOT' came biggrin.gif

Great miss Grace smile.gif Let's see the take!

Lol I wish it was a metal music country so I would actually fit in x)

How should I record so that you can hear the guitar and the song playing at the same time without a problem?

We'll start with the camera smile.gif

Make a few tests before posting the recording on youtube and then here, aiming to get the sound of the guitar and the backing track at a decent level.

Hey Cosmin!

How are you doing? I haven't been able to record anything yet unfortunately sad.gif but hopefully this week I can, I really hope so. So I should play a song on a stereo and play along to it? Is that how you meant?

Howdy Grace smile.gif

Here are the steps which you should follow:

1) Get enough lights in the room
2) Position the camera and make sure you got batteries and space on the SD card or memory
3) Enter the link with the lesson
4) Access the backing tracks in the right part of the lesson screen - you have to press on the little arrows- do you know about this?
5) Start recording
6) Start the backing track and play with it
7) Save the video on your computer and make sure that the audio is ok (you can hear the guitar and the backing track)
8) Post it on your Youtube channel (start one if you don't already have one)
9) Embed it here with the Embed option available on Youtube smile.gif

Let me know if everything is clear and you can work your way with it smile.gif

Cosmin

Hey Grace smile.gif This is very good! I think we can start working on stuff here, miss smile.gif

The fact that you switched a few of the phrases is not a bad thing as long as you follow the drums. See, in this style of music, the phrasing is very tightly connected to the drumming - this is why all those bands sound incredibly tight!

Alright then, here's what I suggest:

1) We focus on riffing, which you are obviously into, as long as you like all that modern metal stuff smile.gif

2) Theory, which you will need in order to understand what you are playing

3) Lead - are you into lead playing? If yes, what techniques do you like and are you experienced with a certain one?

4) Composition - do you like writing your own stuff?

So, what do you think about all this? smile.gif

Cosmin

Thank you Cosmin and I see what you mean about playing with the drums, it makes perfect sense.

Riffing sounds terrific!, theory I know I need it, lead is great but I have no experience with it and I've always liked rhythm a lot, composition I like it. Sounds great ! biggrin.gif
