> 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 mate smile.gif well, what do you say if you would choose one of my metal lessons in order to get yourself acquainted with the Drop C feeling and about the patterns... a first step is managing to envision standard tuning with the thickest string one tone down. Let's start from drop D - can you see all your low D string power chords in an easy way?

When you say low D chords do you mean something like this? In Dropped d tunning Striking all the bottom three low strings (D,A,D) open would be to play a D5 chord. Barring across these same strings in the second fret would play a E5, Same fretting shape at the third fret would be an F5 chord?

Hope I explained that right.

And I would like to start with your "Pillar style lesson" smile.gif

Exactly mate! Spot on wink.gif It is very important to see the disposition of the notes on the neck in respect to the lowered string - it's all a matter of re-orienting interval shapes actually smile.gif Glad you like the Pillar style lesson! I would strongly advise you to work on it as slowly as possible at first, due to the fact that it needs a very exact approach in almost all its length. Better to play it at 50% of the speed and be dead on with every note, rather than play it at 100% and sound sloppy!

Deal, mate?

Do you have or know of an exercise to learn the pentatonic scale and diatonic natural minor scale in all positions? This would be really helpful to improve my visualisation and practical application of D tunning when writing music.

And it's a deal, I will start today!!

Hehe, great man! About the positions, I would strongly advise you to look at the neck and spot all your root notes for a certain scale and then try to go through the particular scale you are learning, by using 16th notes, 8th notes, triplets or even groups of 5,6 or 7 notes. Place the root on each string and play 2 notes per string, 3 notes per string or even 4 notes per string if your fingers allow it. Don't learn patterns by heart smile.gif Instead understand where the notes on the neck are and how you can discover your OWN patterns smile.gif It would be easy to slap a few patterns for the pentatonic or natural minor scale and say 'learn these', but I want YOU to build your own smile.gif They will stick to your head a lot better. Can you build let's say 5 patterns for the A minor pentatonic and the A natural minor scale? Shoot a video and show me what you found biggrin.gif
