Hi, I'm Chapuzator, live in Andalusia in Spain and I like the music and "try" to play the guitar and more.

I have a Vintage V-100, a Ibanez RGR08LTD and SG kit and assembled by me.

To play at home I use a Pocket Pod and I have a Randall Diavlo head 1W and 65W Laney Prism.

I love Punk, Reggae, Metal, etc, etc..

And my goals are simply playing to entertain and try to learn to play guitar better.

I leave a cover of the Sex Pistols:




Greetings to all.

Hola Chapuzator! Bienvenido!! Entiendo español but the idea here is to speak in English to let everybody understand what we are talking. Can you write and read in English?

Hello man! Welcome to GMC!

In here, we are all a big family and everyone helps one another smile.gif Feel free to ask us anything and if you would like to, I would like to let you in on my mentoring program here: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_fo...t=0&start=0

Your video is very nice and I like your playing! Since you are here and you want to improve, I would suggest you to focus more on being in better synch with the drum track - I am saying this because you mentioned styles in which rhythm plays a crucial role and I am sure you would like to become an ace with this - am I right?

Now, in order to become an entertainer, you need to have a good grasp on your instrument, so that onstage, you could focus on other things such as communicating with the crowd, jumping and singing even - players that sing attract a lot of attention, you know wink.gif biggrin.gif

We can work on your groove and rhythm chops if you wish and I can also help out with stage tips, or even singing if you wish, so let me know if you would like that!

Cosmin

Hi chapuzator

from someone else who lives in Andalucia cool.gif

By the way - I was a teen in the late 70s so saw a lot of UK new wave and punk bands live. Never saw the Pistols though.

Thanks for your advice Cosmin.

Indeed one of my biggest mistakes is monitoring the pace of drums, I really have to learn.

I'm practicing your lesson Flamenco Metal since I live in andalucia birthplace of flamenco.

In my city "Granada" was born one of the most important poets of flamenco, Federico Garcia Lorca wrote lyrics to songs Camarón de la Isla.

Hello Paisano.

I have not been lucky enough to see the Pistols.

Hopefully another tour of "Lucro Indecente"

Now we are talking!! Do you like football? Today is an important day for Spain! You have to win!

So, getting back to music. You have two interesting goals:

- Playing guitar better

Based on your video, the main thing you have to work on to make your guitar playing better is your timing. You like styles where rhythm is fundamental, you must be a very tight guitarist if you want to play punk metal. In that video I can see that you lose a bit your timing in the connections between parts, when drummer plays fills and off course when things become more complex.

There are two main reasons why we sometimes play with timing issue. It can be a technical issue, this means that we are not comfortable yet to play at that tempo, and the second one is a mind issue, which means that we are not paying the correct attention to timing while we play.

The first, can be fixed taking small sections of the song and playing them as a loop, as it were an exercise over a drum loop or metronome.

The second can be fixed focusing on timing, trying to feel the rhythm of the backing in your whole body, closing your eyes, moving your foot and marking the beats. Feel the groove and focus on connecting your right hand movement with the drummer's rhythm.

I have lost of lessons that you will enjoy practicing because I love those styles and covered many popular bands like Sex Pistols, Ramones, The Clash, Offspring, Rise Against, and many more. Most of these lessons are rhythm lessons that will definitely help you to train your rhythm abilities, but remember to follow the two steps that I explained here.


- Become a good entertainer

It's very cool to find this goal. Students usually forgot about the attitude side of playing an instrument which is very important if you are planning to be a live player. When people decides to watch a Youtube video or go to see a band live, it's important to know that they are deciding to WATCH the video and SEE the concert. Attitude, movements and image are very important for punk and metal styles, and it defines your personality and style. There is no a correct way to act on stage, you have to find your own personality there, but there should be some connection with the music that you are playing, unless you use the contrast as a part of the artistic message of just for making it look more funny.

Once again, based on the video that you shared here, I think that there are some things that I can suggest.

- Show your face in your cover videos.
- Play the punk covers standing up.
- Move your body and head with the music and groove, experiment, see what happens.
- Check you clothes, use weird stuff.
- Get inspiration by the best music entertainers.


and watch this movie:

Hello mate! Wow, I am honored that someone coming from the birthplace of Flamenco is interested in my lessons - I am but a rookie in this musical field, so that makes me feel great smile.gif

If you would like to take the exploring further, I will tell you a bit about what inspired me to come up with this piece - the combo of metal and flamenco practiced by bands such as Ill Nino or Flametal, basically, but since you tackled it I am sure that you are already listening to some of these bands or other similar ones, right?

I deduce that you have a guitar that could be tuned to drop C smile.gif If that's the case, I would totally recommend two more lessons in which you can work on your drum synch skills:

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Metal-Metrics-4/
https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Metal-Metrics-6/

These are not too simple and not too complicated, but they accentuate the idea in which you need to work on being in synch with the bass drum a lot, so please let me know if you like them and I'll be glad to assist further smile.gif

Gracías Gabriel, i will consider your advice to improve my playing.

I'm watching the video and it's very interesting, I'm a fan of most artists on the video, in the eighties and even personally met Joe Strummer.

In the eighties, after dissolving "the clash", he went to Granada inspired by the poetry of Garcia Lorca and lived there as a beggar, I took a few beers with him more than once.

A very modest guy, we do not believe that we had just was Joe Strummer.

My town has a square named.

He ended up producing a disk to a known group of the city: "091" :

Wou! Awesome story man. I didn't know about him living there like a beggar. This is one of those moments that you'll always remember and I'm sure that him and the experience surely taught you many things of life.

It's amazing how life turns things around, isn't it? smile.gif One day you are an international superstar and the next...

It was pretty much the same with Maryanne Faithful - you know, the lady with the weird voice in Metallica's 'The memory remains'...

I honestly don't know much about her story, she is a singer, actress and Mick Jagger's girlfriend, but don't know anything about being a beggar.

Well, this link on wikipedia shows what drugs and an undisciplined life can do to a weak soul: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marianne_Faithfull#1970s

It's amazing she survived and furthermore, managed to re-invent herself!
