16:45:30 Gen: can you play well?
16:45:40 Iluha: mmm... in my opinion no
16:45:47 Gen: i mean, what is the most complicated thing you can play?
16:45:55 Iluha: hardest i can play perfectly is Love Thing
16:46:35 Gen: are u fine with sweeps?
16:47:20 Iluha: and that's witout the wah wah effects cause i just got poor equipment
16:47:36 Gen: okay
16:47:43 Iluha: Actually I only started practicing sweeps a few months ago... when I signed up to this site
16:48:07 Gen: a okay^^
16:48:09 Iluha: I'm improving slowley.. most of my trouble is muting
16:48:47 Iluha: did that google tv work for you yet?
16:48:52 Gen: yea, i think that s the hardest thing with sweeps
16:48:57 Gen: no
16:49:34 Gen: and u? did it work?
16:49:38 Iluha: nope...
16:50:13 Iluha: im gonna try it 5 more times and then ill give up
16:50:22 Gen: okay lol
16:50:31 Gen: can you play pavel s lessons?
16:51:58 Iluha: ok i give up
16:52:03 Gen: lol
16:52:18 Iluha: mm hes new one I can play allmost at the same speed
16:52:25 Iluha: but the rest of em... not really
16:52:40 Gen: you can play the luca turilli?
16:52:47 Gen: lesson
16:52:48 Iluha: yeah
16:52:51 Gen: wowo
16:52:55 Gen: wow*
16:53:14 Iluha: it's basicly because I reallly practiced alot of speed picking and neo classical things in the past few weeks
16:53:22 Gen: a okay
16:53:33 Gen: and u always use alternate picking?
16:54:13 Iluha: mmm... I think so I never really pay attention to how I pick.. I just do what feels comfortable
16:54:32 Iluha: AKA economy picking
16:54:52 Gen: aa okay, u use only economy picknig?
16:55:04 Iluha: basicly yeah
16:55:13 Gen: okay
16:55:37 Iluha: o I forgot, in this lesson only thing I cant really play up to speed
16:55:42 Iluha: is avecourse, the sweep
16:56:02 Gen: a okay lol
16:56:31 Iluha: My problem is that I mute TOO fast
16:57:01 Gen: k
16:57:24 Iluha: I mean, that I often palm mute before I pick the note
16:58:14 Gen: with economy picking, when u go to another string, u go always with a down stroke right?
16:59:02 Iluha: mmm yeah but I guess I don't allways use economy, because it really depends on the pattern I'm going to play on the next string
16:59:20 Gen: okay i see
16:59:47 Iluha: lets say you you play a lick that is just
16:59:51 Iluha: mm
16:59:57 Iluha: 7th fret on b string
17:00:03 Gen: yes
17:00:22 Iluha: no wait never mind
17:00:29 Iluha: I cant realy think of a good example right now hehe..
17:01:16 Gen: lol okay no prob
17:02:52 Gen: and how is your improvisation?
17:02:55 Iluha: I guess picking patterns mostly depend on personal preference
17:03:02 Iluha: mm... sucks I guess
17:03:06 Gen: yea u re right
17:03:11 Iluha: I know only some basic scales
17:03:24 Gen: wich scales?
17:03:24 Iluha: I really don't spend time practicing as much as I would like to
17:03:44 Iluha: 1 minor 1 major 1 pentatonic *hides*
17:04:27 Gen: but, what is the difference with a minor and a major scale?
17:04:59 Iluha: oh wow I suck with theory heheh... but minor has one diffrent note then major
17:05:10 Gen: okay lol
17:06:00 Gen: but how did you learn it?
17:06:20 Iluha: When I only started playing I had a teacher
17:06:38 Gen: aaa okay
17:06:38 Iluha: but you can easily learn scales from Andew's theory boards
17:07:08 Gen: i must find a teacher lol, cuz i really dont understand the scales
17:07:36 Gen: i know the five boxes of the a minor pentatonic scale, and thats all
17:07:38 Iluha: you try reading some of Andrew's thory things?
17:08:20 Gen: yea, but i still dont understand, in switzerland we speak french lol, so i dont understand all the complicated terms
17:09:08 Iluha: ah.. mmm you can try buyin some kind of theory book
17:09:28 Gen: mm yea, but i think it would be better with a teacher
17:10:00 Iluha: Yeah but if you going to get a teacher then don't get one JUST for theory get one for everything
17:10:25 Gen: cuz i dont want to lose time, i think i started a little bit late, so i want to learn fast, thats why i practice 5 hours a day lol
17:10:41 Iluha: nah there's no such thing as starting "late"
17:10:57 Iluha: music is first of all FUN, age aint got nothing to do with fun
17:11:15 Gen: yea i know but still...
17:11:36 Iluha: I started at 16 and it's also reletivly late
17:11:37 Gen: its more difficult to be a pro when u started late
17:11:38 Iluha: BUT
17:11:50 Iluha: so did Pavel, and look at him now, hes only 19
17:12:07 Gen: when have he started?
17:12:11 Iluha: 15
17:12:18 Gen: lol
17:12:20 Gen: wow
17:12:32 Iluha: ill quote his signature:
17:12:46 Iluha: It isn't how much years you play, it's how many hours
17:12:59 Gen: yea, i saw this one
17:13:07 Gen: its true
17:13:52 Iluha: yeah you probably wont be that new young guitar extravaganza sensation heheh... but you still can make it big
17:14:03 Iluha: some bands only made it big at their 30+
17:14:07 Gen: lol
17:14:51 Gen: and u, have you a band?
17:15:32 Iluha: nope.. here's my problem and why I can't practice as much as I would like to
