> 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 ;)

okay! my name is Logan Cross, I am 23 and been playing since about 13, but i dont spund like i have. my influences are KIRK HAMMETT, James Hetfield, Marty Friedman, dave Mustaine, Alexi laiho, Jeff Loomis, Matt Heafy, Alex Skolnic, AndyJames, all GMC Instructors, and many more along the lines of thrash and heavy metal!!!! daily practice, well im a full time student, with exams coming up very soon, part of the time i can practice for 1-2 hours or more seven days a week, and sometimes i can practice 1-2 hours or more 5 days a week, it really depends on the homework i have sadly sad.gif I can upload audio just fine, i can actually upload some audio of me doing one of your lessons biggrin.gif video im not sure, i play through my mac sp i can see if i can use the webcam and sync it with the audio! my main goals as a musician, this sounds far fetched but its been there since i was 13 haha, i want to to be a frontman in a thrash metal band and play an opening act for the Big 4 thrash bands. after that i want to be in the biggest metal band and be on the front cover of guitar magazines!! my main goal in life is to be a musican, even tho im not gonna make alot of money at first after school, i cant imagine not being able to live off of music.

There you have it friend!

very excited to be working with you!

Hi Logan! Let me say that your post is very cool. I like your energy and how you set goals for your musical career. Let me say that everything you dream is possible with discipline and hard work. You can play with big bands, you can make your band big, you can live and pay rents with music and whatever you dream. But you need to focus and dedicate time to it.

The first step, before starting a band is to have a good overall guitar level, then compose great music and then the longer step,playing live, recording albums and making press to make your band known.

Audio files are ok for me, so please record yourself playing some lessons (1 rhythm and another soloing) and share it here to let me know your current level. Then we can start with your guitar plans.

It sounds very precise. The main thing that I would try to improve on this one is your guitar tone. What did you use to record it?

Hi mate! You don't have to use iTunes, you need Movie Maker to sync audio and video. Go to the minute 7:45 of this video:

Hi mate. What's the format of your reaper file? Did you export the mix in .wav or .mp3?
