> 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.

Good evening,Cosmin.
Everything is clear.
From C maj
- if we go count every 5-th note forms a new scale and every 7-th adds a sharp.
For example 5-th note from C is G.
And 7th note from G is F.
So G maj scale is G-A-B-C-D-E-F#-G
- if we go countdown every 5-th note forms a new scale and every 5-th adds flat.
For example 5-th note is F and if to countdown from F then 5-th note is B and it adds a flat.
So F maj scale is F-G-A-Bb-C-D-E-F

But F# maj is out from this rule.

And I am not sure about pentatonic formula.
If I think right pentatonic means 5 notes.
So D maj pentatonic is D-A-E-B...?
Or the formula is constant 1-2-3-5-6?
And For D maj the pentatonic scale is D-E-F#-A-B?

Hehe! Top notch mate wink.gif

The second part is still a bit blurry I see biggrin.gif

The major pentatonic scale has the same formula every time - 1 2 3 5 6 and the same goes for the minor pentatonic one 1 b3 4 5 b7

So: D major pentatonic is D E F# A B

In the case of F# major, you probably observed something interesting - we will need E# which usually goes by the name of Db. When we reach this point we can transform the # into b

Knowing that Eb = D#, Ab = G#, Bb = A#, Db = C#, Gb = F# please transform F# major into Gb major and then I'll tell you more biggrin.gif

I think I am at an impasse.
I can see that F#=Gb.
I can suppose that there are the same scales.The difference is how to write the name of a key note.
But I don't understand 6 sharp notes.I can name only 5 sharp notes : C#,D#,F#,G#,A#. How can be E#?
And 5 flat notes : Db,Eb,Gb,Ab,Bb.
They are in the same tonality.
To think that way :
C# major=Db major and others.

I don't understand E# and Cb.
Because Cb is B.
E# is F
To think this way Gb maj Gb,Ab,Bb,Cb(how?)Db,Eb,F,Gb.
Gb should be Gb,Ab,Bb,B,Db,Eb,F,Gb But it this case we see Bb and B.
May be that is why B we write like Cb?

And F# :F#,G#,A#,B,C#,D#,F,F# So F and F# and we write F# and E#?


It is a nonsense kind.

My friend, your train of thought is very good!

E# and Cb are simple denominations created in order to respect the individuality of the notes, by using these names, we won't have double notes, such as F and F# or B and Bb - got it? smile.gif They are just names and they are used because in a major scale you need to have all the notes and no doubles smile.gif

So, tell me man, are there any other questions on this one?

Hi,Cosmin.
I think somethig is opening.

Can we do any exercises to improve my technic?
I told you I like the way you give me to understand music.

Hey man, thank you again for your kind thoughts smile.gif

Now, the best lesson that will discipline your hand coordination when picking, would be this one:

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Picking-Hand-Basics/

Please study it and make a recording - focus on picking clean and with movement economy - the less you move your hands, the faster you will play wink.gif I definitely think that it is good to alternate applied theory with technique exercises, so let's have a go at this one, ok?

Cosmin

Hi,Cosmin.
I am going to do the exercise on the weekend.

I recorded intro solo Fade to Black.I hear my mistakes but I see that the speed of my fingers is growing.
I hope that something will be not bad soon.

I will post the solo by Skillet. It is a little better.

Hey man! Not bad at all! Please focus on the faster lick at about 0:29 smile.gif You see, you need to build up your technique, but be patient and practice - it'll get there smile.gif The lesson I suggested in the previous post, is basically the first step to this!

Hi,Cosmin.
On Tuesday I am going to Kiev.
I will get my guitar there and then I will
go to Krym.
My guitar will be with me and I will be in touch.
I hope I will record my first video soon.

Well, it's my home exercise

Hey mate! You are 95% there - you are playing clean and with good definition and timing. I also like the tone!!

In the part where you are playing triplets, you still have a bit more work to do in order for that 95% to become 100% smile.gif I would say focus on getting the triplets more equal and after re-recording this one, we can move on!

Great man! I am proud!

Cosmin

Hey man! It's still a bit shaky - by that I mean that you still need to work on it until you really feel the subdivisions work against the track smile.gif As an ensemble it is good, but it can be perfected so keep working on it ok?

It needs to match the original recording perfectly!

Now, another one which will help your technique A LOT, is this one: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Picking-Arpeggios/

Up to the challenge? biggrin.gif

Man, breaks are totally welcome smile.gif There are times when you will feel exhausted psychically and instead of enjoying your playing, it'll feel like a chore wink.gif

Take one day a week, in which you DON"T touch the guitar at all smile.gif Let me see some pics of the new axe when you have a chance, ok?

Hi,Cosmin.
I will show ofcourse
I have arrived to Krym.
Everything is fine, there is a wi fi connection in my room, I will do my exercise tomorrow.
I have tested my guitar I showed you the photo.
I am so glad because of two reasons:
- my friend began to study playing a guitar
- I got my guitar which I wanted so much.
Well, I am going to sleep and waiting tomorrow.

Hey man! I know how it feels when you have a burning desire to play and there's nothing that can quench your thirst aside from music/guitar biggrin.gif

Please send me your latest recordings so that I may see your progress wink.gif
