> 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.
There are my attempts.

the lesson :

https://www.dropbox.com/s/5wdczey9snk8k6x/a...icking%2012.m4a


the collab :

https://www.dropbox.com/s/f9ylj9kkqp4ra69/collab%2013.m4a


It is far from perfect.
But I am going. wink.gif
And it is an amazing journey. wink.gif

P.S.
I saw your PRS guitar review.
It is very nice.
I am going to buy a guitar next year.
I like ESP.I have Horizon NT II and I think about PRS.
But PRS USA is very expensive and I think about Korea versions(SE).
I have enough time to find out how much difference between USA and Korea versions.
Unfortunately It is impossible to find PRS and test it in Penza so I will choose listening to the advice and reviews.

Best wishes,
Paul

Hey mate!

Thank you! The PRS SE is a very fine choice and I think you can't go wrong with a Paul Allender for instance - the new one has EMG active pickups and it is a bit more aggressive than the usual models, as well as the Akerfeldt you've seen in the review.

I think we can go for this take for the collab - it's the best so far! About the alternate picking - you tend to lose hand synch in the upper registers as the low ones sound pretty tight. Could you focus on that and then, if things are cool with the next take, we can move on to a new one smile.gif

Keep me posted mate!

Cosmin

Hi,Cosmin.

About lesson.
I can play without a tension on the speed 60 but I decided to record on more faster speed to increase my speed.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/hje8x2r9oe2qjob/a...icking%2015.m4a

To see my progress I recorded the earlier lesson which I am playing not good at the present time but I can hear my improvement.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/s40qla7w1qug23r/F...%20120%2031.m4a

Tomorrow I will record and send to Gabriel my collab video.

Hey mate smile.gif Unfortunately, this last take submitted has a lot of mistakes which are happening due to the high tempo which is above your level of playing - results: Hands out of synch... Don't rush mate smile.gif

With the other lesson, the same thing - there are spots in which the recording is too blurry to figure out what's going on - please use a slower backing to record and focus on timing and definition. I'd rather have you play slow and accurate, with the risk of you cursing at me laugh.gif then to have you curse at me later because I allowed you to go through things like this smile.gif

Deal, mate?

Cosmin

Please do man smile.gif I am not, by any means, trying to slow you down, but by slowing you down I am giving you the opportunity of building healthy naturally grown technique that will stick with you for the rest of your life! smile.gif

I understand.
I use this rule always.
But sometimes I want to record in a faster temp that I can.
90 % of my training I play in a slow temp that I can play clear.
Don't get mad at me. biggrin.gif
I do as you say.

I'm not mad, mate biggrin.gif Just want you to progress and grow steadily and not become frustrated when hitting walls. After listening to your recording, I think that you should focus on the hand synch a bit more, as an overall aspect, as well as on making smaller moves when picking and with your left hand as well. The desynchronising between the hands comes from this thing in a lot of situations - too much movement smile.gif

Let's see what happens when you work with this thing in mind wink.gif

Cosmin

Hi mate! As you surely know, Cosmin is now on vacation. I checked your audio and you are getting very closer. There is still room to improvement and it since that your hand gets tired once you reach the middle of the take. You still have to practice this one every day but you are definitely on the right track. smile.gif

If you need something or have any question please contact me!

Cheers.

Hey mate! I am back in action! I see that Gabriel was helping you out with things while I was away wink.gif

About that device, I have the same one biggrin.gif Mine is red though and it used to be the most tensioned one they made - now I see that yours is 'heavy tension' ... biggrin.gif

How are you?

Hi,Cosmin.
I am very glad that you came back.
I hope you rested and gathered new strengths and emotions.
You a very creative man I am sure it will express in your new songs. wink.gif

I am in business trip now and writing you from the hotel.
I bought two devices for using them in my business trips when I can't take the guitar.
The second is for the left hand
http://www.dynaflexpro.com/store/powerball...raining-cd.html

I will be at home on Thursday and continue my training.
I will post my new records.

See you
wink.gif

Hey mate!

Yes indeed, it was a trip to remember biggrin.gif All the people I've met and the sights I have seen... truly amazing and inspiring smile.gif I decided to work more for myself this year, as I literally wrote almost no new music at all last year... I guess there are times and times, but anyway, I will post a big story about the trip in the Chillout room so, stay tuned these days.

About the powerball - never ever tried it biggrin.gif How does it actually work and feel? Do you feel your hand strengthen up already, or will it take more time?

I will try to explain.
It is a very interesting device.
When you begin to rotate it something sarts to rotate inside this stuff.
And you feel something very heavy in your arm.
It bacames so heavy that it is getting very hard in the forearm.
I suppose it should develop tremolo.

21 century.))

About the result of using these stuffs.
I feel strength in my hand and the most important I started to feel 3 and 4-th fingers of my left hand.

I see biggrin.gif Well, those two are definitely a pair to fight with tongue.gif

Now, in respect with how you are faring with the tasks so far, we could also work on legato using these fingers mainly - a little finger workout, for instance, can work magic on the hands - what say you?
