> 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.

Hi,Cosmin.
My home exercise is really difficult. I am not ready to play it for you.
But when I decided to rest I recorded one other lesson.

Hi.
The internet connection in my hotel is not speedy
enough.So I will post my records as fast as it can be able.
The exercise is realy cool.The position of left hand fingers is
absolutely unconvenient but it's great.
I got that it allows me to improve my left hand.
Well,I am doing.
I like when something demands a lot of my efforts.

Hey mate - the Sum 41 track sounds good! I think this style suits you and you have managed a very realistic rendition - the only small issues are happening in the portion around 0:33 - it is clear that your picking technique needs work, but no worries mate - you will get there! Slow and steady, ok?

Challenging yourself constantly, but at a realistic pace, is a good way to keep improving - by that, I mean that you shouldn't strive to play difficult things on a short term and become frustrated because you can't make it, but always give yourself a little more to work on, by trying things which are only a tiny bit more difficult than the things you have already mastered. Keep this pace and it will be great!

Hi,Cosmin.
I decided to record my raw playing.
Finally I could play all positions but It is hard for me to change fast the position of left hand,you will hear that in my record.
I hope in a couple days I will play it purely.
It is really a difficult exercise.
I even have a little cramp in the fingers.
I never felt like that.
But today is much better.

Hey there amigo - in terms of timing there is a big difference between the two takes:

- the first one was a bit off and it had missing notes
- the second one has good timing but it has notes that are missing - this should be your main focus now smile.gif

This is usually happening because you have recorded at a tempo which is too fast for the chord changes to occur smoothly - go back 10 BPM and re-record this, while focusing on not missing any note whatsoever and keeping good timing, ok?

Cosmin

Hi,Cosmin.
It is the first time when I do so long.
Today is a little better.
I stopped to feel a cramp in the fingers.
So I hope I am not far from my aim.

Uh oh, what happened man? Does it hurt bad? sad.gif You should definitely stop if something hurts, you know..

It seems like you are still missing notes or muffling some of them - as i said before, this is due to the fact that you don't master the chord shifts at this speed smile.gif Give yourself time and send me a recording at a slower speed with the metronome - let's say 75%, deal? Focus on timing and getting EACH and EVERY note clean and good sounding, please smile.gif

Hey mate!!

The 80% version rocks, so far! Aside a few unwanted sounds - it has good sound, timing and it is played clean and articulate!

The one against the drums, still needs some work as some of the notes are being choked, but the positive thing is that in comparison with previous takes against the backing, this one is the best so far!! You are 95% there!

I am proud! Tell me, would you like to take the concept a step further? smile.gif Some more alternate picking arpeggios but in a different context!

Cosmin

Hi,Cosmin.
I remember my first tasks.
I have had spent much less time on their fulfilling.
And I did other exercises in parallel.
But now it is the second exercise on which I spend all time.
It is good because we chose the correct load for me.
You are a very good teacher, I was very lucky to meet you

Hi,Cosmin.
I recorded several versions in different speeds.
It is not good enough yet.

Hey there mate!

It looks like you got all the right parts, but it seems that the synch is not quite there at the slowest version - please lower the tempo at about 50% and focus on playing as clean and in synch as possible - a movie could help a lot, so I can see your picking technique. Can you do that?

Hi,Cosmin.
I am at the hotel now and I can't record video.
I hope I will be at home on Wednesday and will be able to record it.
But my guitar is always with me so I can train everyday.
I tried to take into account your comments and here is what came out.

Pavel, my friend - it is too fast smile.gif Please record as I suggested two posts ago and be patient, ok? Here - for a reminder: Please lower the tempo at about 50% and focus on playing as clean and in synch as possible - Deal? smile.gif

HI,Cosmin.
I am at home finally.
I tried to record the first video in my life.
Unfortunately something doesn't work.
I recorded my video in iMovie, but the background track is inaudible.
I don't know why because I hear it in my headphone.
And that is why I posted my audio version.
I will correct I need just a time to understand how I can record a video.
