> HEY MAN, I really need your help...

...the thing is, I need you to start progressing faster then ever, but to achieve that I need your help:

* Don't know where to start? Just pm me and we will sort it out directly, I am online every day.

* Join My Army. Sounds aggressive? It is! We can study anything from the most fearsome picking techniques to bombastic songwriting. A medal of honor awaits the brave. Seriously, this is an opportunity for you to get a personalised learning experience...what are you waiting for?!

* 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?

* Finally I want to tell you a secret. Nah I changed my mind - pm me instead ;)

Hello Gab.
As I told yo before by mail I´m an intermediate guitarsit (Level 4/5 some 6) and I trying to improve my skills to overpass this level and become to a new one.
I´m trying to aquire more speed with alternate picking but I feel dissapointed because I can´t progress. My average high speed is about six notes per beat at 80/85 speed (not much). I´m trying to improve it but I get stucked at 90/95/100, no matter how much time I practice in 80/85. I´ve wondered that the main problem is on my right hand, maily when I play ascending scales and I mute a little bit the 6th and 5th strings, then when I have to continue the scale to the 4th, 3rd, 2nd and 1st string it become messy. How did I get this? because I´ve been trying to play triplets alternating two chords (with no left hand in use) and I can´t do it clear and accurate in time. I´m 45 so I don´t know if it´s a matter of age, muscles or joints of my hands or maybe my burned brain...(ja). Could you help me to find the way to improve my speed?
Other areas where I want to work on are arpeggios & Legatos.
Here there are some videos I recoreded for you (I´ve sent them the links before by mail)







Thank´s a lot in advance man!!!!
