Hi Ayan! Sure! I know that it's difficult to stay focused with so many stuff out there but it's very important to follow a plan in order to see real results in our playing.

In order to have a complete coverage of music and guitar we should focus on 3 directions (which are obviously related):

Guitar Technique

Harmony & Theory


How much time do you have for practice?

Hi mate,

I've been reviewing our thread and I think that we need to continue from HERE.

That's the first step, can we consider it done in order to start Week#2?

Hi Ayang, you can do the warm up some minutes and one of the two lessons from the technique section. You can choose the one that you prefer.

About the warming up lesson, sure! We can go for that one. I know that the other one is trickier but as it's a warming up, my idea is that you play it at your comfortable tempo, not at the normal tempo.

Thanks for the feedback.

For the theory part:

I will continue the week 1,the major scale as I need to go through the diatonic sequences and the arpeggio shapes before moving 2 week 2.I would like to know if u can share some tips for improvising with the major scale as it seems a bit redundant when I try to do it on my own.

Hi Ayan,

If you are only using the workout backings, I recommend to start experimenting with other backing tracks that are in major but that include more chords. It will refresh your soloing...

here are some tips:

- Using different embellishments like sliding, legato, bending, and vibrato can make melodies sound more interesting and different.
- Try different rhythms and note duration. Use staccato.
- Try creating short phrases using 3 notes or 4 notes separated by a silence.
- Combine Pentatonic major with major scale for soloing. You'll get different kind of lines.
- Use string skipping for melodies.
- Start a phrase with a 6th interval.
- Play horizontally: Learn the scale in one string and try to create melodies thinking on the scale more horizontally thatn vertically. You'll get more vocal type phrases.

- You don't have to learn this one but check out how Guido develops a melody here: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Developing-a-melody/

Hi Gab,

Thanks for the suggestions.

Hi Master,

Could u share some ideas on symphonic/power metal music.I am really attracted to bands like Kamelot , Nightwish , Blind Guardian,Sonata artica etc.I feel the theme or the sound of the songs very unique and as if they have got a story in themselves.What are the uniqueness in which the songs are made,i mean what technicalities or scales and chords are used in these type of songs.In my country we lack any bands who play this type of music.When i will start making my own music i want to venture out into this genre,although i am currently a toddler but i hope in this way. biggrin.gif

Hi Ayan,

at first I recommend you to work on my archive of Power Metal lessons in which you'll find covered all the technique and theory necessary to compose your own power metal songs. Once you work on many of these ones, we can start analyzing some full songs, and then, start working on your own music. What do you say?

Hi mate, ok!

What about the improvisation course? Have you worked on module 2?

It would be interesting if you can record yourself improvising over a backing track. That would help me to see where you are right now and which things we should work.

Ok! Let's go for mod 1. If your guitar action is high, don't worry, just play the chord to remind the shape and to connect it with the scale. Then, when your guitar is well set you'll be able to play it.

Please keep me updated.

Can I re practice the week 1 once more, because the last time I had a little problem with holding the last 3 C chord shapes over the C major scale.
