> 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 ;)

Hi BjarturN! As we arranged at the chat-room, this is the thread where you can post your guitar video and then I will start helping you with your guitar practice (technique & theory).

Your favorite bands: Metallica, Red, Shinedown, Papa Roach.

When do you think that your video will be ready?

Hi friend! The video quality is perfect for this purpose. At first let me show you the link that you have to copy here to insert the video correctly like this:

As I comment at the chat-room, this lesson is great because it combines many techniques in a simple way. I can notice that you have more problems with the most advanced ones: fast alternate picking, sweep picking & tapping, but there are also some work to do with bending, vibrato and legato. When the advanced techniques appear, you also have timing issues, and this is surely because the technique demands more attention and you can't think on timing.

I have two ideas for one that can be our next steps, if you agree.

1) Isolate the tricky sections of this lesson and work on them. This means that you take that AP lick at 0:22, the pull offs at 00:32, the sweep a 00:41 and the tapping at 00:45 and practice them as isolated exercises over metronome or a drum loop.

2) The second part of the plan is to create a guitar routine to improve your overall guitar technique. This first week, the routine will include:

- Alternate Picking
https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Altern...king-Workout-2/
https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/solo-guit...picking-thirds/

- Bending
https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Beginn...String-Bending/



- Legato
https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Bens-Land-Of-Legato/
https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/hammer..._for_beginners/



Please let me know what you think! wink.gif

Well, a more constant update could be great to be sure that you are not working anything in a wrong way. You can post videos here with short sections that you are working on and we can meet each other at the chat-room.

what do you say? deal? smile.gif

Ah ok! I hope that this solves on friday and you can get back to practice. Please keep me updated and let me know if you want to use this time to other activities like music theory, song analysis and ear training.

I know very little about theory actually, i can play some songs by ear, but i do not know the theory behind it... And some lessons, there are written what key the song is in right now, i really want to know more about that and what it means

Well, I assume that you would like to be able to compose music in a genre close to the bands that you cited as influences. For this, it's very helpful to know some basic theory. I think that you should at least cover these topics:

Intervals
Triads (major, minor, diminished)
Chords (major, minor, 5th, diminished, 9th)
Scales (Pentatonic Minor, Minor, Major, Phrygian, Harmonic minor)
Tonalities based on the scales learnt.

Those are the basic things that you should know in order to understand most of the compositions of your favorite bands.

Let's start with the first step: INTERVALS

Let me know when it's done! wink.gif
