> 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 ;)

Well, the first thing that we must do to incorporate your favorite music concepts into your music is to analyze each of this songs. We have to analyze the structure, the chord progressions and their way of arranging. Are you able to learn tunes by ear?

Ok sounds good smile.gif I really struggle with learning songs by ear, at best I can figure out a part of an easy tune, but often its in the wrong key.
So no not really... Can we start with something really easy? Like "Three of clubs" by HIFH? Would really like to know what scales they use in this how the song is structured and how the two guitars work together smile.gif

What's the first lesson?

Thanks.

Well the first thing that you have to write here is the structure of the song... (intro, verse, pre chorus, chorus, bridge, etc...).

Just listening to the song and trying to identify each part... and write it down here. Can you identify the sections of a song?
