> 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 ;)

Hi Sam! Yes, I found this take in the other thread and I liked! Your composition sounds good, and this means that you have a good ear. I can also notice the timing issues. I have on question, do you usually practice exercises and lessons with metronome?

ok, the timing issues appears in the faster licks, so maybe the problem is just a technical limitation...

Hey mate! You have been working really hard!! smile.gif Good job!! There are two things to pay attention to triplets timing and add more vibrato to your playing (wider). I think that you could practice this one over the original lesson to imitate the vibrato and also to be sure that your timing is precise.

Gab, I've been trying to work on my vibrato and timing, its a wee bit better than before, still a lot of room for improvement and a lot of work to be done. I can't video record at the moment, so I'll just post you with audio take for now smile.gif Hope you don't mind

https://soundcloud.com/sam-ryan-stormrage/neoclassical-1

Also, I noticed transitions from lick to lick aren't smooth, any tips you can give to me for practicing that?

Hi Sam! Your take is better now! Your timing improved a lot and your vibrato is getting better! I can notice the transitions issue, and also the first bend is a bit weak. For bending please work on this lesson:

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Beginn...String-Bending/

The best way to make the transitions smoother is to isolate the two licks that you have to connect and practice both over metronome as a loop. Just work on small sections until your fingers feel comfortable with the movement. Pay attention to your hands and fingers and try to notice what is making you waste time during the transition.
