> 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.

Guys and girls biggrin.gif

Since we all talk about tightness and timing in our rhythm playing, I have decided to start a new collab based on this very idea smile.gif

Here's what you have to do:

Step 1 - Come up with a riff/ rhythmic sequence in the key of A minor
Step 2 - Record it over the backing track below - yes, it's the one with missing bars smile.gif No cheating though tongue.gif

The tempo is 75 BPM and you can get a hold of the track's pulse and tempo if you tap your foot to the ground while playing. No cheating here tongue.gif And by cheating, I mean, copying the recording and placing it over the part where there are no drums.

As long as we all stick to the key and the tempo, I will combine all the takes and create a massive groove jam and each of you guys will have a part in thin air, without any drums behind it, so take care and record with as good a timing as you can, over any of the parts where there are no drums.

The deadline is October 20th

Let's make see how great rhythm players we all are!

I tried this yesturday with a rhythm from a song that I know, This at the very least is great practice for keeping solid time, it gets tougher towards the end but I thought I kept time pretty well. I recommend everyone try this even if they dont enter the collab,It really is great practice for keeping the rhythm tight.Thanks Cos! cool.gif

Well, if it feels too hard towards the end (where I know a lot of the actual bars are missing biggrin.gif) record up to the point where you're not feeling comfortable anymore smile.gif

What an awesome idea!! This reminds me of something we do, semi-frequently, in my funk band.... where we're on a groove, and then we all drop out and someone take a fill over that, and PASS that fill/riff section around to all of the players, and then we ALL jump back in on the one (usually, or wherever the riff starts)!

It's a great practice for any band, but look out live.... if even one person is off at any point, it shows!!
I don't have my guitar out currently, but I'm near the end of the collab track....it gets so sparse!! Here comes a challenge!! I might use this exact track, and speed it up or down, in the future for warmup routines. I like warmups that also improve skills, like timing, fretboard knowledge, picking, vibrato, legato, etc and on and on and on.

Hey Dieter smile.gif You should play over the entire track not only in the breaks, the idea is that you must remain constant while playing regardless if there's a drum beat or not smile.gif

Please try it again, playing over the whole track wink.gif

And please send the guitar track in a separate wav. file biggrin.gif

Thank you!

Cosmin

ON A SIDE NOTE:

Ladies and gentlemen! 4 days left! Come get it while it's hot!!

Cosmin,

I decided this is way to difficult and so I won't submit a take for this collab.



Just kidding, here it is laugh.gif

The first half was okay, then my timing slipped a bit...and I tried different rhythm figures throughout the take, I hope that's ok.
