> 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 ;)

Thanks Gab
I will look at it. Regarding the previous lessons, I don't see them like a "this week" program but an ongoing one. I am proceeding very slowly, everyday but slowly.

Thanks
Carmine



Excellent! We can do weekly adjustments on the routine if you get bored of any lesson or anything else happens. We have to be very flexible to achieve goals, be effective and keep motivation flowing. wink.gif

I am happy with the assignment, not so happy with my time schedule. But I do know on what I have to concentrate.
Thanks again

Ok! So let's dedicate this week to that routine. Please organize your time in blocks to cover all the different techniques each day. As you surely have to re-learn the lessons, I recommend you to work on 1 or 2 parts of each lesson each day to be able to remember all this stuff at the end of the week.

I'd like to follow closely your progress so I'd like to see a video of you playing these lessons in around 7 days. It doesn't have to be a video at normal tempo if you are not comfortable yet. Choose a comfortable tempo (you can use the slower backings) that allows you to play everything clear and tight and shoot a video.

Deal?

I will need a couple of weeks for my first video. Also, I would prefer to study just one lesson at once, can I do that? Maybe we can start just with the basic picking hand? I am planning to do some other lessons apart from your suggestion just for fun.
Also do you have any suggestions regarding rhythm and right hand?
Thanks in advance

Hi mate! Yes, you can off course work only on one lesson if you feel more comfortable. The technique used on Picking hand basics is Alternate Picking, so here are some tips to start:

• It basically means alternation between downstrokes and upstrokes
• It can also help your timing for funk rhythms.
• It lets you use your mind to other things since the motion can be automated.
• Get in the habit of holding the pick between your thumb and your forefinger.
• Keep the exposed area of the pick to a minimum. (for precision)
• Try to do the movements the smaller than possible.


It would be very important to check your technique so please share a video the sooner possible. wink.gif
