> 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.

Introduction 17.Feb this year
QUOTE
Hey All

Im glad to be here after all since im visiting this page for about 2 years now
Im from Germany, Blackforest, Im 24 years old and Im playing Guitar for about 3 years.
I stoped playing Guitar for 10 Months now because of some problems with my Hand -.- (inflamation caused by playing Guitar^^)
So now I joined GMC to start again!

Im lefthanded and i have a few e-guitars and a PODx3Live .
My favorite Guitar is the LTD F-400 FM Lefthand.
AlterBridge is my favorite Band and I will work hard to play like Mark Tremonti one day .... just kidding
Yeah i guess thats it for now and u will see me in some of the live lessons these days
rock on!


I had trouble with my hand again and i hope its over now biggrin.gif

I bought the "All I was" Album from Mark Tremonti and its just amazing. Tremonti is most definitely my favorite Guitarplayer.

hope the embedding works...



amazing but it seems unreachable to play like him...

An other alltime-Favorite...
quite different from the upper video biggrin.gif
it starts at 0:45
I can play the background guitar and most of the leadline.I still haven't figured out how to play the part after the strumming -.-
maybe you can help me out with this one day cosmin smile.gif



Erase my scars is a song i tried to learn a year ago before i got my inflamation.
its pretty cool that their guitarist shows how to play it at their youtubechannel.



one more! I like this songs studioversion! The vocalist isnt that good actually biggrin.gif biggrin.gif



I listen a lot to "Story of the year" "Alterbridge" and "three days grace" at the moment.
and tremonti of course wink.gif

One other band i really like is called pigeon toe!
Its a german Band smile.gif



crazy sound but i like it!
I think u get an idea of what i listen to, dont you? biggrin.gif
I think in GMC I'm level 3. I want to improve leadplaying and stop playing sloppy.

Hey Buddy biggrin.gif Our musical tastes are VERY VERY much the same biggrin.gif

This means it's going to be easier for me to help out. Here's what I suggest we should do:

1) Tackle theoretical aspects
2) Ear training
3) Riffing
4) Lead playing - here we could talk about articulations (Marc deals with articulations elements quite well - bending and vibrato that is) and what other technique would you enjoy learning?

Tell me, do you have anything recorded with you playing the guitar? It would help me in knowing where you are smile.gif

Are you good with all of the above? biggrin.gif

I know thats the reason why I am here but I dont want to post a bad video. Now I am trying to play "voice of your guitar"
I struggle a lot with bendings precision so this lesson might seem to be a good choice. hopefully I will record a take the next days...

Hey Cosmin, you ll not trust your eyes biggrin.gif
I said to myself its time to record a f***unny lesson! It seems it need 6 full months. impossible.
yo i just recorded this lesson and guess what? my cubase crashed and my computer turned off and killed my soundfile biggrin.gif
that really grinds my gears! But the video cam recording is still there so I decided to upload it anyway....
here it is! Finally you see my playing... in the middle of the night so the video is really bad but who cares. wink.gif

http://youtu.be/msi-4HA56Bg

And of course there are a lot of Mistakes -.- I ll try to record it again the next days but you get an idea of my skill level.

Mate, finally, you made it biggrin.gif Look, the main thing here is timing - you are a bit behind the beat usually, out of what I can figure out. Even if I can't hear any landmark, such as a metronome or backing track.

Please re-try this by paying attention to the drum track - it will guide you through very well and it would be great if you could record in such a way that I can hear the backing track/ metronome as well.

When will I have the pleasure of seeing the new take? smile.gif

Cosmin

Nice to hear. Im waiting for quite a time now. But thats no problem wink.gif
The waiting for my Video was quite long to biggrin.gif
Ok I uploaded another try. The sound is much better now but the timing is still not perfekt. I played this on a very slow metronome yesterday so Im getting into it but still its harder than I thought....

Hey man! You will be the first served wink.gif No worries!

I must congratulate you for the progress - I think you did well but here are the things you should improve:

- The palm muting should be ore obvious in general
- Until the first chorus part, your timing was almost perfect and you played with a good vibe and groove, somehow, after that, I think you lost focus, as your timing went astray a bit and you played less tighter.

I totally recommend you to focus on the chorus and get it in shape, while taking care of the palm muting in the whole take!

After these, it's off to the REC zone with this one biggrin.gif Let's do this!

Cosmin
