> 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.

Hi Cosmin,
I'd like to see if I'm holding the guitar properly. I moved my picking hand more parallel to the strings, but the guitar feels a bit uncomfortable on my right leg. Thanks.

Well, you are on the right way - it may feel awkward because you are not familiar with all the motions. Also, it looks like your wrist is not that well anchored on the guitar body - I for one dislike that guitar shape because it feels too small for me, so I am having a bit of trouble on seeing how the wrist is actually placed there. Also, please focus on keeping your left hand finger movements as small as possible.

The guitar is a Steinberger Spirit. Believe it or not; it's actually pretty comfortable. The side has a flap that allows it to rest on your leg. The only problem is I need to pick a leg; when I use my left leg my arm protrudes out pretty far. I have a hollow body electric Gretch as well. Would that be better to use to build my picking technique? Thanks.

Man, theoretically, any guitar is ok, as long as you like playing it smile.gif Experiment! You are coming from an area in which right hand techniques are a totally different animal and you need to adjust to using a pick - so expect a bit of awkwardness in the beginning! I like using the classical position because it keeps my body relaxed - I use the side saddle position when I sing and play, as it allows me to see the neck without moving my head away from the microphone smile.gif
