Hi Ayang,

Most of the lessons based on legato are good to train this topic. There are no lesson specifically for this issue but that's because most of the lesson require working on this. There are some that I consider good to focus on muting:

Hey Gab,

As I was practicing on the major scales lesson of yours.....i was thinking whether or not to practice the 5 positions(CAGED) of major scale on different roots throughout the fretboard......other than C only......and even the arpeggios based on the G major scale,whether to practice for other roots?

Hi Ayan! Yes! It's the best you can do to master scales, practice on all 12 keys to be sure that you can join every jam and improvise over any backing track.

Hi master,

For quite a few days while practicing I was feeling anxious......I feel motivated to take up the guitar once I see some shredders ripping off,playing melodic solos....but when I start practicing it seems that what I am expecting to be is in distant future....I know the guitar players whom we admire are today admirable coz they have put in their hardwork for many years.....but how to stay motivated when things seems pretty monotonous?How to keep on with the focus of playing in a concentrated manner,inspite of taking up the guitar and playing this and that and after a few days finding out nothing has improved? smile.gif

Thanks

Hi Ayan, what about setting goals on playing songs and using exercises only to help you to master these songs? At first you could work on cover songs, and then you could switch to your own compositions. I think that it's the best way to stay motivated. However, it's very important to be wise with the choices to avoid frustration.

At the same time, GMC lessons are like short songs so musical lesson can be an option.

Please tell me what you think.

Well, we have to explore and search for songs that you like, that are close to your guitar level and that applies these concepts. This is not totally easy to find, but here I am to help with the search.

Write down some artists or bands that you'd like to cover, and if possible a list of songs.

Hi gab,

Thanks for helping.I would like to cover Joe satriani,John petrucci,Marty Friedman,Chris broderick power metal bands like kamelot,nightwish,avantasia....songs I won't be able to name probably...because there are many and I think all of them seems beyond my present level of playing...

You could start learning the first 30 seconds, and practice it. If you use youtube, you'll find tutorials and backing tracks to do it. Learn the part, record yourself in 5 days and share your video here.

What do you think?

Hey Gab,

Is Emaj 7th add 6th is same as Emaj 13th? According to my calculation:

Emaj 7th add 6th= Emaj ( E G# B ) + 7th (D#) + 6th(C#) and

Emaj 13th = Emaj(E G# B ) + 7th(D#) + 9th(F#) + 11th(A) + 13th(C#)....... so they are not the same .....

did I do any mistake in my calculation?

When playing Emaj 13th, you don't necessarily need to play the 9th and 11th so both can be the same chord depending on how many notes you play. These chords are from the same family which is dominant, so can be considered the same because they have the same function, and the addition of extensions only gives different flavors.

I have started with the picking hand basics lesson by Ben Higgins.Now,the goals are to get warmed up with the left and right hand and to get them in sync.....and also starting with chords and scales practicing.

Thanks and regards.

Good choice, let's go for it, and maybe one of the legato lessons that I've recommended on this thread. Work on them for 1 week and share a video here to let me check your progress. Ok?
