> 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.

Hey Mike!! This is officially your thread! We will discuss and work on developing your guitar and musical skills here, so please join me as we start smile.gif

In the beginning, I would like to ask you to record the following lessons, so that I may see how you fare with rhythmic subdivisions in both lead and rhythm contexts, ok? These will give us good ground to start from!

Alright! The Arpeggios lesson is going to be an interesting one, since chords are still giving me a little trouble. But that isn't going to stop me! wink.gif

Heya Cosmin. I am back again after having to take a short break. Paying some bills got a little rough. But now that they are out of the way, I can get back to practicing some more!

Hello again Cosmin!

I have a question for you! After watching my takes on a few segments of the Picking Hand Basics lesson, I decided to purchase a metronome to help me out with my timing. However, I am still unsure if I set it right. Do you have any suggestions for setting it for what tempo and beat I would need to match the lesson's beat and tempo? It's a Korg MA-30 Metronome if that helps at all.

Thanks!
