> 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 Nai! How are you? I started this thread to help you to design your guitar routines based on your goals, to keep motivation and to give you feedback and suggestions. I would like to know more about you so feel free to tell me everything about yourself you consider will help me during this journey.

About your question via PM, if you stuck on something and you start to lose motivation the best it to move! Let if for later and work on another topic that keep your motivation flowing. After all, we are doing this because we love it, if we start to lost enjoyment we definitely need a change. Follow your heart and feeling, trust in yourself since it's the best way to have a strong personality which will be reflected in your music. We don't have to master everything, we have to find our strong point and work from them in order to find our own voice, our own style. Find your uniqueness. smile.gif

About scales, sure! What scales do you already know and which are your favorite bands, styles and musicians?

You said that you are working on Marty Mustaine lesson and I also suggested a routine looking like this one:

Warming up (7 minutes)

Alternate Picking (30 minutes)

Legato (30 minutes)

Sweep Picking (30 minutes)

Theory (30 minutes)

Creativity training (30 minutes)


Let's continue the discussion here! smile.gif

Hi mate, that's great to know. Being open minded is a big advantage for musicians because it's easier to be a more creative and personal artist. You are all the time discovering new things and this keeps the surprise factor alive.

Let's fill the topics with lessons, do you have some suggestions? Some GMC lessons that fit on the topics?

I found this lesson very interesting; "Legato workshop by Juan Cortes"

What do you think of it, Gab?

And would love to have any recommendation lesson for me too.

Hi Nai, that lesson is tricky but it's very cool. Juan's licks are always very influenced by Greg Howe and Kotzen. Check out this album if you are interested in exploring this style:
