> 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.

This is my favorite recording from their album biggrin.gif I am a fan! biggrin.gif

Hehe! Mate, it's not a bad idea to explore more genres, but try to get a composition finished in each style if you feel like it - whatever you do, aim for a tangible result smile.gif I want to learn that - why? Because I want to use it in a song. Let's write the song with the certain something I am learning, or place the certain something in an already existing piece. You got the idea, right? biggrin.gif

Hey Ben smile.gif I wouldn't change a thing mate - I mean you are playing correctly and with a nice touch - if that's what you felt in respect of note choice, that must be it wink.gif

Hey Cosmin!

As I can't comment in the REC section, I just wanted to say that I actually haven't posted it before. I just decided to record it tonight. I was working on it for 15 minutes the other day and half an hour today or so and decided to post it smile.gif

It's not a bad idea at all. Though I know I will struggle with even the first note, as it comes in after the first 16th note, but hey...that's something I need to work on, so why not?

That's my boy biggrin.gif Now, I don't want you to play it THAT fast initially, but respect the note lengths and interpretation at a slower tempo wink.gif Deal?

No way I could play it at 140 bpm anyway at the moment. I'll play it slow to begin with! It's Friday and I'm not doing anything for the rest of the day, so there's time to practice! smile.gif

I'm really struggling with remembering the "chromatic" passage. Any tips to remembering difficult passages?

Alright, here's after 1½ hours of working on it:



And I now remember the piece!

I think we have brought up this topic at some point, but maybe in another form - When I have to learn something, I listen to that piece for a long time. I try and see if i can sing it by heart - I can sing almost ALL of Steve Vai's solos biggrin.gif It will be in your head and automatically in your fingers as well wink.gif

Hehe! Good work mate! It looks like you have a great picking exercise - it sounds very correct so far, which is great!

Around 0:30, I think you missed a note? smile.gif Other than that, just keep pushing the speed until you reach the top, slowly wink.gif

I'm nearing 120, but struggling, and I bet the last 20 bpm will be a rough ride!

Hey Cosmin,

Did you see my thread about my "new 8 string" guitar? Or rather, I've taken the lowest 7 strings from an 8 string set of strings and put them on my 7 string and it's working surprisingly well. laugh.gif

Busy, busy Cosmin! How was the seminar then? smile.gif

Since I've now put "wrong" strings on my 7 string for the Neoclassical Etude lesson, I need to practice it on my stratocaster, which has a slightely different feel, so there's been a small set back in that, but I'm getting there.

And cool, check it out! smile.gif

I sure will - I have the thread opened wink.gif Now, the seminar was a blast, but VERY tiring.. I can barely feel my soles and my legs as well.. That Japanese master with whom we have been training, is one hell of a fighter..

Then you know you've worked well!

I played the first football game of the season yesterday. First time I played as a goalkeeper for 11 years, but I made some good saves and we won 2-1. Hopefully we can carry that form to the next match. smile.gif

Hehe! yes it was mate smile.gif You know, yesterday, in the end when we had to demonstrate what we have learned, our dojo did the best.

I didn't know you are into sports! That's very nice smile.gif I don't like soccer and watching soccer and all the crazy thing about the team supporters and all, BUT I enjoyed playing it when I was a teenager smile.gif It was all about playing for me.. But, I realized I am more of an individualistic guy - being all into martial arts and that sort.

I like team play, but usually there's a lot of egos you need to hold together in a team smile.gif am I right?
