> 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 mate! Thanks for this info. I'm checking the flatliners while I read your info and I can say that they are a cool band. I'll check more of their music in the next days.

Based on your goals as musician, we have 3 main topics to cover on this first stage:

- Rhythm guitar

I could see you playing my skate punk lesson. You have a good level with punk rhythm, you can play fast riffs and strums over backing tracks. You just have to put extra attention to timing details to make your playing tighter. What about working on this lesson?

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Sum-41-Style/


- Lead guitar

I don't know your current level playing lead guitar. You plan to play rock/punk/alternative, so it would be good to master this techniques:

Alternate picking - Legato - Bending - Vibrato - Dynamics

The first task on this topic is to choose a solo lesson that you like from the archive, learn it and share the video playing it here.


- Composition

The idea of this topic is to be able to create your own musical ideas and arrange and produce them in the style that you like more. Before we start creating music, we will dedicate some time to analyze your favorite songs. Please make a list with 10 songs that you like and I'll tell you what to do...

Great!

The next step is to analyze each of those songs. You need 4 things to do it:

- A notepad
- A pencil
- At least 1 ear
- Spotify or Youtube


The analysis is simple. You can use 3 columns, the first one is the structure, the second one explains what happens (arrangements), and the third one is about the theory (scales and chords used). I can help you with the concepts that you can't get. Please start with the first song and share what you get here to let me check it.

After analyzing all these songs, you will have a big idea of the main structures, progressions, and arrangements used on your favorite tunes. It will be a good guide to start working on your own stuff.
