Hi guys,

The last couple of years I haven't been able to practice a lot of guitar, because I was awfully busy trying to graduate.
Now that I only have a masterthesis to write, I have more free time, and thus more time to practice guitar.
And I want to take it seriously now! But I have really no idea where to start...

I've been browsing through the lessons on here, but there are soooooo many, I can't really see the forest through the trees anymore. blink.gif
What are some of the lessons the GMC community would recommend?

My goal is to play music ranging from AC/DC-esque soloing, to Metallica-like riffing, to hardcore/punk style arrangements.

I hope my post is clear. I'm more than willing to clarify my goals, if necessary.

Thanks a lot for reading! smile.gif

Maarten

(I realise this might be post no. 1000 about this sort of question. Please don't hate sad.gif )

Hey mate! Nice You decided to share some thoughts, Your status and request for help. At this stage we usually ask for some playing samples (best if it's a video) so we could advice some particular lessons.


If You want to rethink Your playing maybe it's a good idea to go through some basics at first

Yeah...I would be weird if I won't recommend some of my lessons ha ha smile.gif

Here is a detailed help for all level alternate picking workout:

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Altern...Picking-Basics/ - maybe it's worth to verify Your attempt to it

Here is a mid-advanced 90's metal lesson - based on old Metallica and Megadeth songs:
https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/90s-Metal-Chops/

Gabriel Leopardi has a lot of great and semi-advanced punk/rock lessons. You can search them by typing the name of Your favourite bands in the search box (top right corner)


I will also highly advice Piotr Kaczor's lessons for phrasing workout. One of the most popular is "Winter Tune"


Anyway...best method for search is by the level and band name. I think that's a good start smile.gif

Enjoy Your time at GMC smile.gif

Hi mate! The best recommendation that I can give if is that you choose Cosmin, Darius or me as your mentor to assign you weekly lessons and guide you during the process. I believe that mentoring programs are a great way to keep focused and on the right track at GMC.

Regarding the lessons that you are looking for, here you have my favorites:

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/lessonseries/ACDC/

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Teuton...truction-Style/

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Teuton...II-Sodom-Style/

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Teuton...-Kreator-Style/

and as Darius said, explore my archive because I have lots of punk, hardcore lessons that are not tricky but that shows many ways of arranging songs in this style: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/instructo...briel-Leopardi/

Thanks for replying! I will definitely check all these lessons out! biggrin.gif

I'll try to find a way to record my playing the next couple of days, so more personalised suggestions are possible.
At the moment, I only have a Rocksmith cable and a webcam, which might do the trick, but I haven't checked it out yet.

@Gabriel: what mentoring programs do you mean? I don't think I've seen this yet?
