> HEY MAN, I really need your help...

...the thing is, I need you to start progressing faster then ever, but to achieve that I need your help:

* Don't know where to start? Just pm me and we will sort it out directly, I am online every day.

* Join My Army. Sounds aggressive? It is! We can study anything from the most fearsome picking techniques to bombastic songwriting. A medal of honor awaits the brave. Seriously, this is an opportunity for you to get a personalised learning experience...what are you waiting for?!

* 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?

* Finally I want to tell you a secret. Nah I changed my mind - pm me instead ;)

Hello mate! Welcome to our thread for Gab's Army. In this thread we will design guitar routines to help you to master the Power Metal Medley but also to improve your overall guitar playing.

Ok, this is your current progress of this lesson:




Please tell me a bit more about you.

- How long have you been playing guitar?
- Which are your favorite bands /musicians?
- How many hours a day can you dedicate to guitar?
- What do you know about theory?
- Are you able to record yourself and post videos here?

I started guitar at 11 and banjo at 12. My favorite Musicians and inspirations are Yngwie and Bela Fleck. As far as practicing goes I am a disabled Vet so it's not the hours in a day it's how motivated I am to practice. I spent 4 to 6 hours a day for 7 weeks to learn that 40 power metal band tune you did and I still have a lot to do.. I know nothing about theory, never had a lesson, but I would like to learn
Finally, yes I can record and post videos. As soon as my other guitars and furniture get to California, I will start attending your video chat lessons. I look forward to working with you and others oh and sorry I mispoke your first name in my video it was before I joined GMC, I learned it from youtube, but I really like they way you breakdown the song for learning here at GMC, and I'll never learn from youtube again now that I have joined GMC.

I usually get up and start practicing around 4 in the morning, it really depends on how motivated I am with whatever I am trying to learn..
I plan on being a great student of yours. I have the most difficulty with sweep arpeggios and that really fast dragonforce bit in the 40 pm song, if you can show me how to overcome these difficulty's I would really be thankful.
and I'm also glad you are willing to try a taylor solidbody, you won't be dissapointed, and will have an instrument that really stands out among the other instructors!! Sorry if it sounds like I'm a taylor rep, I assurre you I am just a player trying to learn from the best!!!!!, and turn people on to new things that I've discovered, Good Luck in your search!!!!

Ok mate, you reallyu have enough time to improve your playing in a short period of time. Let's build a 3 hours routine and you can use the rest of the time to compose, learn songs and so...

this is how the routine would look based on my opinion and your info. If you like it, we can start filling the topics with GMC lessons.


Warming up

HOUR 1

Alternate Picking

Legato


HOUR 2

Sweep Picking

Rhythm


HOUR 3:

Feeling (Vibrato / Bending / Dynamics)

Theory
