> 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 mate smile.gif Sure thing. Play it against the metronome and understand the length of the notes and the way in which they clash with the beat. Learn to hum the piece against the backing and against the metronome - I know you are looking at tabs - FORGET tabs. They only take your attention away from what you really should be focusing it on - the voice of your guitar and keeping it aligned with the context in which you perform smile.gif

It's all a matter of discipline smile.gif


I'll try it. I end up playing on the snare, which is off beat.

No progress. My mom is still here, but she's leaving in 30 minutes. Then it's guitar time!

I promised you a small demo of the tuning I was speaking about, so I just made a very quick spoken video with a bit of playing as well:

Wow biggrin.gif Thanks very much man! This is surely amazing and I would like to use it in a demo smile.gif If you don't mind of course. I will have a few PRS guitars on my hands each month, to review from next week onwards and I need to think of creative ways of coming up with vids. This would surely make up something great!

Absolutely! smile.gif

It's great having this guitar on my hands now, it means I can have my 7 string in regular tuning or drop A, and my strat in Eb, my Wolf (the one in the video) in Cminadd9 (or just drop C).

Of course, share it! smile.gif It was done very quickly though, so it could be better, but it's what it is and it is okay smile.gif

You know those times when you think: "Hey, I'm gonna start saving up for a new guitar!" or somthing similar...

...and the moment you think that in comes an extra electricity bill at £250, eating up all your savings.

Jesus man... 250 pounds? Do you own a huge generator or so? Our home has three apartments and together we pay about 170 pounds/month.

It's £250 extra for the whole year, so it's not too bad, just means I paid about £20 too little every month for the last year. I thought I had everything balanced, but apparently not.

Turns out it's only 150 extra, so a tenner and a bit each month would have made it.

I always hate it when some extra bills make surface when you least expect them... grrrr!! Well, have you managed to move headquarters yet?

Unfortunately I managed to make things even worse with my laptop and I've been trying to fix it for 2 days now without any luck. I get errors when trying to update Windows.

Ah mate, sorry to hear that.. Don't you have a friend who can fix it for ya? I have friends in a lot of fields and when something goes wrong with something, the answer is usually just a phone call away. Sometimes, trying to fix things on your own is way too time consuming and instead of focusing on what YOU should be doing, you're wasting precious time.

I don't know about you, but me, I am not at all an adept of the theory in which you have to know how to do everything. It's important to understand how things work but if you would take the time to do everything yourself, you would end up more cluttered than the seeds in a pomegranate smile.gif

Hope the problem will be solved soon smile.gif

I'm usually capable of fixing computer issues myself, but this time around it has just been more troublesome than I have ever tried. But I should be done with things and ready to rock tonight.

As of today it's all fixed and everything is installed. I would have made it yesterday, but a friend asked if I wanted to drink some beers and just chill and listen to some music, so a handful of beers and a bottle of rum shared later I wasn't really up to installing anything, but it was a nice evening/night though. I love drinking when it's not about drinking, but just about having a good time and talking about anything that comes to mind.

I really want to get more into playing more djent and progressive stuff again (I know, I know, I'm all over the place and don't stick to one thing!), so I was looking for videos to making Superior Drummer 2 sound more djenty. While doing that I came by Corelia and this song:



Do you know them? I love the transition to the chorus around 2:30!
