Hi Lukasz!! Welcome to your Gab's Army thread!!

Could you please tell me a bit about you, your musical tastes, influences, strengths and weaknesses? I would need some videos of you playing rhythm and solo guitar, so please post your best material here. If you have some music or ideas of your own, also post them here. Also let me know how you think that I can help you and what are your expectations for our job. You can check the other Army's thread to discover the different modalities of this project.


The principles of our Army are:

+ Improve your technique
+ Make music and solos
+ Have fun
+ Destroy the enemy (hahaha not really just kidding... )

Hi mate! Nice take! We have now 2 things to concentrate on. First, your right hand movement when you play alternate picking technique. I can notice that you are moving your fingers while the correct way to do it is moving your hand from your wrist. Please read the explanations in this thread: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_fo...showtopic=42828
Also check the right hand of the instructor in this lesson and you will notice it: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Beginn...ernate-Picking/
We should go for an alternate picking lesson, could you please search for one at your level HERE

The second thing to improve is your vibrato technique. It's not consistent and one of the reasons why is that you are not using the other fingers to help the finger that is pushing the string. Please pay attention to how Piortr makes the vibrato at 00:07: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/guitar_loves_piano/

Review these things and keep on practising this one.

Awesome!! You really understood how vibrato must be done! You improved Guitar loves Piano take a lot! You just have to continue practising in this way to feel even more comfortable with the technique now. Great job!! smile.gif

Nice take mate! IT sounds cool! I think that you still have to concentrate on feeling... dynamics and vibrato. Try to make vibrato even more consistent and regular, sometimes is a bit too electrical. Also be sure to do it from your wrist, not with the finger.

Check the first part of this video where Joe shows how to add vibrato properly to bends... check how he moves his left hand...

Hi Lukasz! Thanks for the videos! Your feeling is better now! I can notice that your vibrato starts to be much more natural than in your previous version! This means that you are doing a great job, keep on working on it. There are some details starting at 00:45 in the Guitar loves Piano lesson 1 but it's just some random wrong notes. The part 2 is also very good, and the most important thing to work are the bends because there are many that don't reach the correct pitch.

Keep on the good job! smile.gif

Hi Lukasz! Thanks for your take and congrats for your work! You are on the right path with these two lessons! Your timing and overall feeling are very enjoyable. I think that you only have to review your bending technique because there are some bends that don't reach the correct pitch in both takes, for example at 00:55 in the first one and at 01:26 in the second one. Your bending is better than in the past but it still needs more work. Do you notice the problem?

Hi Lukasz! You have been working hard mate! You bending technique is very good now! You are reaching the correct pitches!! I'm impressed how fast you are improving your playing. Keep on working on this lesson to feel more comfortable with it, and now concentrating a bit more on your vibrato technique. But let me say congratulations! smile.gif
