> 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 ;)

Hey Gab,

I'm really sorry I was out for so long, specially without a word about it. Truth is, that first week I stopped posting because I was overwhelmed with work and I just though: "Next week, I'll just post next week". Weeks started adding up and soon it turned into a full month and we are now going like 6 or more weeks without any word. I wanted to comeback with a take at least, I can't. I've not been playing any guitar at all and I don't know when I will to be honest.
So, if it's alright with you, I'm just gonna take some time off and when things lighten up at work I will post here, ok?

Sorry again,
Pedro

haha nice to know that you've liked the video. There is a nice book that I'd like to recommend by Wooten, it's called "The Music Lesson".

Hi mate! Here I'll share our plan for this month.

Practice time: 4/5 hours per week

Goals:

- Technique Practice
- Improvisation
- Learning a song

Weeks #1 & #2

Learn and practice this legato lesson. Try to memorize 1 new part on each session, not more than that. Dedicate 20 minutes per session to this lesson. https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Bens-Land-Of-Legato/

Blues. This lesson will take more time. Work on the firt half of the lesson during your first week. Memorize the licks, polish details, practice over the backing track and combine them with your own licks by using the scales suggested by the instructor. Share here takes showing your practice, it's not necesarry to play the whole lesson exactly, add you own stuff. https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/BB-King-Blues/

Let's choose a cover song to learn. I suggest this one:

Hell Yeah I'm in!

Just watched the lessons and I'm very excited to try them out although they do look challenging for me.
As soon as I have some videos up I'll post them here.

Fuel is one of my favorite songs, great choice! wink.gif

Thanks!

Hey Gab,

Progress has been very slow. I'm having major issues with "Ben's Land Of Legato" and "BB King Blues".
I've been making really slow progress on the song too. mellow.gif

Anyways I'm on holidays now. I'll try and practice as much as I can... I'll write back when I come back.

Thanks

It was a very humbling experience, but don't get me wrong, I really loved those lessons!
Even though I failed miserably and progressed really slow I learned new techniques.
I realized that one thing I was doing wrong was playing the same couple of songs all the time... Never tried something different nor learned something new.

I'm gonna stick with those lesson, that song and record some clips when I get back wink.gif

Well, sometimes it can be the progress can seem slow, but if you are practicing new things, you are going forward. You'll note progress in the future, trust in yourself and in your practice!
