> 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.

First things:

1) I'd like to hear recordings with yourself - if you have any, please post them here smile.gif

Hello Lukasz!

I have listened to your playing and I think you are on a good way of building up your sense of expression in the Guitar plays piano lessons! Very good! smile.gif

Now, what would your favorite techniques be? What are you currently studying with Todd and Gabe so that we can have something else in here smile.gif

Cosmin

Actually, Todd help me with alternative picking, and Gabriel with bends (focus on taking correct pitch). My favourite guitarists are Paul Gilbert, John Pettrucci, Zakk Wylde.
For now my aim is be able to play:


so i have many work to do ;d Maybe u have some lesson recommendation which will help me to achieve my goal. Step by step. And like i said i wanna learn how to improvise smile.gif

Hello again Lukasz!

Since you are already studying alternate picking and bending with Gab and Todd, I'd suggest we focus on ideas that implement these aspects into your playing, as well as some ear training drills that will help you on your way to improvising.

What do you think about these to start with?

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Intervals-Etude/ - aside from developing AP skills, it will offer insight on phrasing using different types of intervals
https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Combin...ios-And-Scales/ - AP and combining scales and arpeggios
https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Antoni...nter-Arpeggios/ - AP and coming up with arpeggio shapes over each chord change

I think these three combine the technique with some very useful tools for any improviser out there smile.gif

Let me know what you think and I will also post a little video regarding a first ear training assignment!

Cosmin

Hey Lukasz - I have no clue about these bands - but of course, if you like them you can sort their chords out as well biggrin.gif But if you would like my recommendations, I would start with this one:



I want you to figure out the intro and the chords for the verse and chorus parts smile.gif

Hey mate - can you write the chord names again, but this time tune your guitar to Eb standard - that means detune the whole guitar one halfstep down: Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb - that's how they are tuned smile.gif Try again with this tuning - it was a trick about which I haven't told you - I was curious if you would pick it up by yourself tongue.gif
