> 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.

I would love to play your Winter Arpeggios; but my picking skills aren't quite developed yet. I'll wait till you pass me on a picking exercise I'm working on first. lol. I was in Venice over the Summer, and heard a lot of Vivaldi. I never knew that was his hometown. Vivaldi actually wrote some great stuff for the guitar(lute). I've even played some of it when I was in college. The guitar concerto in D is my favorite piece. Check it out if you've never heard it before.

Hey mate! Haha - he is actually my favorite classical composer biggrin.gif Thanks for the share - I think I have heard this one before, but I am not entirely sure smile.gif

Now, what exercise are you working on for your picking? Maybe I can help out smile.gif

I've been doing the David Wallimann Cromatic picking. I've been doing it for about 15 minutes a day. I've got a long way to go.lol My problem is the change in picking backwards.

Mate, if you say that your picking skills are at the beginning, I think that this lesson is a bit too much to start with.. I mean, it would be healthier to work on something easier, I think. In order to be sure about this, I would need to see a recording of you playing this - what say you?

Sounds good. I'm always happy to get advice from the Maestro. My biggest issue that I notice is going backwards on the licks. I'm still not completely comfortable with the pick yet, and of course speed. I haven't really been using the backing track, because i feel that i haven't mastered the fundamentals yet. Thank you for spending the time with me on this.

Hey man! Thank you for the video smile.gif I am noticing a few things:

- the right hand is not positioned in such a way that it can offer maximum efficiency - it should have the fingers closer to being parallel with the strings, rather then perpendicular on them - I know you are coming from a classical position, so this will be a bit difficult to undertake. Please look at David's right hand position and try to get as close to it as possible.
- the left hand movements are very large - you should focus on keeping your fingers closer to the fretboard
- the hands are desynchronized as a result of the above stated things
- I would place the guitar on my left foot - in the classical position in order to allow my body to be as relaxed as possible

The big idea here is - SMALL MOVEMENTS - the less you move, the more efficient and in synch you will be. And don't rush, please try the suggested things at a slow speed to get them flowing naturally.
