> 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 ;)

I know there's a few timing slip-ups but this was just a straight improv take after work today!

Wou! This is sounding very musical mate! Well done! I think that will a more variable backing and some details in your playing this could become a song. smile.gif Your playing is becoming much more melodic thanks to this workouts and this is very promising as the next weeks will add more stuff into your playing that will make it more interesting without losing musicality. That's the key!

Some things to have in mind in the next sessions:

- Add more vibrato, different types, different intensities to give more feeling to your playing.
- Experiment with dynamics.
- Use more silences, and also more rhythm variations in your phrasing.
- Experiment with other techniques like pinch harmonics, legato, tapping, more bends, etc.


By the way I think that you are ready to start working on the following week stuff.

Keep on the good job!! smile.gif

Thanks a lot Gab!!
I'm getting a lot from doing this. I'll try to work some more dynamics into the next things I do! I think I also need to work on my AP and Legato to get some faster phrases in.
Thanks for the compliments and suggestions!!
