...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 am working through this, just started

Gabriel's Video Chat Lesson Notes, Intensive Technique Course

I am thinking about working on the modal components of scales, I need to learn how to control a pick, I broke a nail trying to use my fingers so I am sticking to a plectrum

So once my classical practice is finished I will spend 30 mins or so on scales and their modes to get used to them...what do u think

Yes will do, bloody tabs, I hate them. I will try to learn some of the licks in your lessons and try to improvise around the pentatonic scale to start...improvisation is an area I haven't a clue about but i know I have to start.

OBTW Ty for your interest
