I have a question a about chords.
If you are going to play for example sus4 chord.
Should you learn it in all CAGED shapes? Cause with these chords, I only use E and A shape

Hi mate. Suspended chords are those ones that replace the third by the second or forth. The most used positions are the ones that you already know A and E shapes, because the cooler sound of this chords is gotten when you have the suspended note in the higher strings. However you can convert to suspended every triad and every position and inversion.

Hi mate! It's evolving really good. The only comment that I have to do is that you should pay attention to your timing, both in rhythm and melodies. I know that this is a demo but it would be very useful if you get used to record everything played tight and groovy.
Keep on the good job!

Hey Gab
Long time smile.gif

Anyway, here is the chorus of my new song.
The transition feels a little weird though. It switched from 6/8 to 4/4 and becomes a little slower.

Well it surprises even me when it comes, and i have written it xD
So, who do I make smoother transition?

I know there are many ways like complete stop, bass slide. Right now I have a drum fill.

Have a listen, it starts with the verse then sends you in to the chorus

Hi mate, yeah, you are right, the change is not smooth and it sounds like too slow when it goes to 6/8. Why don't you experiment with the tempo of the new part. Maybe using a faster tempo the change will be cooler.

Yes I was thinking of that but didnt know how to have different tempos in the DAW, but it was a google search away ^^
190 bpm on 4/4 and 150 bpm on 6/8 melted good togheter.

I dont know how to say, but it feels like its the same tempo when its not smile.gif

Only problem is now I got to practice that tapping chorus a lot haha

haha excellent! Sometimes it's important to make tempo changes, even more when the groove changes like that. Can I listen to it?

Cool! The transition is smoother now, well done. Those are very tricky licks, you will have to work on them slowly.

Hi mate. I have a book that is my bible of chords. I check it very frequently, every time that I want to incorporate new chord shapes to my vocabulary. It's called "Chord Chemistry". Do you know it?

Hey Gab
I have a question regarding pratice.

Do you think I could instead learn complicated solos with different techniques, right now for example I study the solos
of Born Of osiris, and I think you learn a lot from that first listen than learn.

I think that is a much better way then doing these book regular exercises.

Hi mate, yes! This can really works if you are disciplined and work on the parts until you master them. Sometimes you have to create variations or loops of the trickier parts to focus on them and be able to play them perfect. Have you seen this thread? LINK

The good side about building a routine like the ones that I offer in my army is that I share mostly GMC lesson, most of them are musical ideas, and I create a schedule that covers all the techniques I consider important. If you work diary on this techniques, you will be mastering each of them and training your playing to be able to play whatever you imagine or hear without technique limits.
