12:33:49 Kristofer Dahl: Hey Dynamite!
12:34:11 Kristofer Dahl: What are you guys practicing?
12:34:11 dynamite_dude: how's it going guys?
12:34:44 dynamite_dude: looking for some dvds - for inspiration, at the mo
12:35:02 AliMo: not bad, practicing pavels new rythm lesson right now
12:35:04 Kristofer Dahl: Cool - is it working? :)
12:35:18 dynamite_dude: would be watching ozzy's budokan right now, if I hadn't left my bad complete with dvd and housekeys on the train the other day... >.<
12:35:28 Kristofer Dahl: AliMo that's a great idea - asthere soon will be a follow up!
12:35:57 Kristofer Dahl: dynamite_dude Aw :(
12:36:08 AliMo: yup, just trying to get up to tempo on it now to work with that virtual jam thing
12:36:12 AliMo: that seems like a really good idea
12:37:05 Kristofer Dahl: Yes it's cool to get practice some rhythm guitar whil ethe instructor is playing lead
12:37:22 Kristofer Dahl: Gives you a real-life musical situation! :)
12:37:51 Kristofer Dahl: How long have you been visiting the site?
12:38:38 AliMo: signed up around may, and lovin it :D
12:39:09 Kristofer Dahl: That's awesome :D so it met your expectations! How long have you been playing?
12:39:35 AliMo: not long, about 7 months now
12:40:17 AliMo: but the sites definitly helping, my friend has been playing a while and says ive improved a lot
12:40:17 Kristofer Dahl: So do you think there is enough material on the right level of difficulty?
12:40:46 dynamite_dude: sorry to interupt, but how are both of you managing to type whilst playing? ;)
12:41:39 AliMo: ya its definitly well rounded with beginner and advanced stuff, the past week though ive just been focusing more on rhythm cause my heads about to explode from all the theory 8)
12:42:41 dynamite_dude: playing 7 months and already taking in the theory, heh? nice going!
12:42:59 AliMo: haha thats a good question actually, i should be playing right now but my hands r tired
12:43:29 dynamite_dude: fair enough! never a good idea to over-work them
12:43:44 AliMo: haha ya i figured if i understand what im playing then itll all click eventually and i can learn better, so far i either understand some things or just make it more confusing
12:43:50 AliMo: how long u been playing dynamite?
12:44:07 dynamite_dude: about.. 2 years, 2.5 now
12:44:42 AliMo: cool
12:45:23 dynamite_dude: to be perfectly honest, I've never really gone through any of the lessons here properly. I found it a bit annoying that I couldn't just go off and learn some songs I'd love to play
12:45:47 dynamite_dude: difficult to find exercises that suit a song you desire to learn exactly
12:46:16 dynamite_dude: what bands you into AliMo?
12:46:46 Kristofer Dahl: sorry about that!
12:46:54 AliMo: i like most types of music but lately ive been listening to a lot of old metallica
12:47:07 AliMo: wut about u?
12:47:24 AliMo: its ok kris, just don't let it happen again :p
12:47:37 Kristofer Dahl: I'll try :P
12:47:53 dynamite_dude: I'm into a lot of metal, but branch off into other areas such occasionally, a bit of funk, a bit of blues, softer stuff
12:47:58 dynamite_dude: lol :p
12:51:57 Kristofer Dahl: I just made a post in the forum about us being active in the chat - let's see if we can get some more activity here!
12:52:26 dynamite_dude: I'd be suprised if people responded that quickly! Not used to seeing that in many places
12:52:36 AliMo: hahahaha
12:52:43 Kristofer Dahl: Shouldnt have said that! :D
12:52:45 AliMo: hey ryan
12:52:49 Ryan: Hey

12:58:27 Kristofer Dahl: It's a nice country - not to many people here..
12:58:43 Ryan: I dont like crowded places anyways
12:58:46 Eat-Sleep-andJam: Kris I almost forgot to tell you I went fishing down at the delaware river like 4 days ago and I caught a 22inch brown trout
12:59:07 Kristofer Dahl: MMMmm fly fishing?
12:59:13 Ryan: Is that big?
12:59:13 Eat-Sleep-andJam: no yet
12:59:19 Eat-Sleep-andJam: its decent size
12:59:31 Kristofer Dahl: what is 22 inch in cm - do you know?
12:59:33 Ryan: oh, Ive never been much of fishing
12:59:37 Eat-Sleep-andJam: um
12:59:41 AliMo: nice, I've been trying to go fishing for some time but the steering cable on my boat is broken :(
12:59:43 Eat-Sleep-andJam: well 12 inchs is a foot
12:59:46 Eat-Sleep-andJam: so like 2 feet
12:59:50 Ryan: How many cm is in 1 inch?
13:00:08 Kristofer Dahl: That's a fantastic brown trout then!

13:02:13 Ryan: Time to warm up on guitar while chatting. So if i dont repsond quicly. You know why
13:02:19 Kristofer Dahl: Ah yes! :D
13:02:38 Kristofer Dahl: More slipperly than a fish though
13:03:03 Ryan: lol
13:03:20 Eat-Sleep-andJam: Kris did you ever get my Pm awhile back about how we should have a little practice calender in are controls
13:03:46 AliMo: oh yea I read that topic, seems like a great idea
13:03:55 Kristofer Dahl: Ah yes - that is a part of a major update we are about to do actually
13:04:00 Kristofer Dahl: so it's a good idea :)
13:04:10 Eat-Sleep-andJam: Score one for the guitar decipals !
13:04:44 Kristofer Dahl: It's apart of the whole restrucuring thingwe are working on - which take smuch longer than I would like it too
13:04:53 Kristofer Dahl: :(
13:05:05 Eat-Sleep-andJam: Im young, time isnt that big of a deal

13:06:04 Ryan: Patience is a Virtue
13:06:10 Ryan: what does Virtue mean?
13:06:14 Eat-Sleep-andJam: Si Signor Ryan ;)
13:06:53 Kristofer Dahl: Yes patience is absolutely mandatory for the guitar practicing business!
13:07:51 Ryan: Ohh and im getting better at it also. Even with the metronome :D Im happy I found out that Pavel's AP Execerise 2. I actually played it full speed. I was so happy. Only did it once though. Cus my fingers arent used to that kind of speed, and a consent pace :D
13:07:53 Kristofer Dahl: Give me ten minutes Ill be back!
13:08:05 Ryan: ok
13:08:17 Eat-Sleep-andJam: congrats ryan!
13:08:19 AliMo: wow thats good Ryan, congratz
13:08:33 Ryan: :D
13:09:03 Ryan: I was so happy, Im gonna attempt it again today. Hopfully I havent killed my hands these past few days. I havent had to work. So you know what that means :D WOOO
13:10:07 Eat-Sleep-andJam: Im not going to look at it but isnt that the alternate picking only on 1 string ?
13:10:55 Ryan: No its the 3rd, and 4th strings
13:11:04 Ryan: Not the Pinky work out one
13:11:24 Eat-Sleep-andJam: ok
13:11:37 Eat-Sleep-andJam: I can play the pinky workout one full speed but thats pretty easy
13:11:44 Ryan: :D
13:11:47 Ryan: I havent tried it
13:11:56 Eat-Sleep-andJam: I bet if you did it first
13:12:05 Eat-Sleep-andJam: youd think its way easier then the one your on now :p
13:12:48 Ryan: Hmm im gonna get the backing up right now. Wait. NVM. I cant I have warmed up yet haha I almost did a big no-no
13:13:43 Eat-Sleep-andJam: Ill show you a vid with great warm up things you can to
13:14:11 Ryan: awesome ok
13:14:41 Ryan: What are the 3 notes called ?? Sixteenth Notes?
13:14:53 Ryan: I get confused on these
13:15:00 Kristofer Dahl: Hey guys Im back :)
13:15:11 Kristofer Dahl: Welcome electric blues by the way! :)
13:15:30 Eat-Sleep-andJam: triplets I believe
13:15:30 Kristofer Dahl: 3 notes are triplets
13:15:32 Eat-Sleep-andJam: yeah
13:15:44 Eat-Sleep-andJam: 4 notes is sxteenth
13:15:49 Eat-Sleep-andJam: but im not very good at that stuff
13:15:54 Kristofer Dahl: thats right!
13:16:02 Electric_Blues: hi all
13:16:04 Ryan: ok
13:16:13 Eat-Sleep-andJam:
13:16:19 Eat-Sleep-andJam: Great warm ups !
13:16:29 Kristofer Dahl: hey Electric! Are you fairly new? :)
13:16:35 Electric_Blues: i am very confused with theory, so 4 notes in the same bar would be called sixteenth notes?
13:16:39 Electric_Blues: yes very new
13:16:54 Electric_Blues: i love the site, its awesome kris
13:17:14 Kristofer Dahl: Not necessary in the bar - but rather four notes per beat (or foot stomp)
13:17:20 Ryan: Then its triplets for 3. Sixteenth Note Triplets for 6 right guys? then 32nd notes is 8 notes i think
13:17:45 Kristofer Dahl: The best to understand this is to stamp your foot to music you are listening to...
13:17:53 Eat-Sleep-andJam: yeah
13:17:58 Kristofer Dahl: ...and the count evenly to four...
13:17:59 Eat-Sleep-andJam: that comes with time I believe
13:18:13 Kristofer Dahl: with the "one" on each foot stomp
13:19:24 Kristofer Dahl: Hey jeff! :D Are you done with thesting? ;)
13:19:39 Kristofer Dahl: Did my explanation make any sense?
13:19:51 Kristofer Dahl: thesting= the testing
13:19:55 jeff: yes!lol
13:20:09 Eat-Sleep-andJam: I have a problem guys
13:20:15 Eat-Sleep-andJam: and I might as well come clean now
13:20:24 jeff: just having a little fun
13:20:42 Kristofer Dahl: we are waiting anxiously
13:21:07 Eat-Sleep-andJam: :( I dont use the metronome, I just stay in sync with backing tracks and tapping my foot
13:21:15 Eat-Sleep-andJam: * kill me now *
13:21:26 Kristofer Dahl: How do you wish to die?
13:21:26 jeff: call the police!
13:21:39 Kristofer Dahl: :D ;)
13:21:40 Ryan: I do that also. but I warm up with the Metromone. I am still getting used ot it :D
13:21:42 dynamite_dude: so youur metronome is your foot
13:21:52 Eat-Sleep-andJam: I dont really understand it
13:21:55 Ryan: Death by Little bunny foofoo
13:22:12 Eat-Sleep-andJam: yeah but my foot is a S***y metronome
13:22:22 Kristofer Dahl: Well I guess as long as you practice regularly with the backing trcaks it's ok!
13:22:32 Eat-Sleep-andJam: No!
13:22:32 Electric_Blues: i dislike using a metronome, i really need to use it more often
13:22:34 Eat-Sleep-andJam: Lies!
13:22:39 Eat-Sleep-andJam: I want to learn with the metronome
13:22:42 Eat-Sleep-andJam: far better
13:22:43 Electric_Blues: the beeping sound gets on my nerves...
13:23:02 Kristofer Dahl: Well there is nothing romatnic with metronome - nothing exciting either
13:23:06 dynamite_dude: get a non digital one
13:23:11 dynamite_dude: i.e. no beeps, just clicks
13:23:13 Eat-Sleep-andJam: Well Ik that
13:23:16 Eat-Sleep-andJam: I just prefer it
13:23:18 Kristofer Dahl: But what is exciting is the progress you start noticing if you stick with it..!
13:23:35 Eat-Sleep-andJam: Its like writing down your homework or taking your buddies word for it ?
13:23:39 Ryan: Mine are beeps :((
13:23:41 Ryan: :(
13:23:44 Eat-Sleep-andJam: get what im saying ?
13:23:46 Kristofer Dahl: However I rarely practice with a metronome beep either
13:24:01 Electric_Blues: i use the korg ma 30
13:24:08 Kristofer Dahl: I practice with a drum machine
13:24:14 dynamite_dude: yeah, electric, I have the same
13:24:22 Kristofer Dahl: Metronome beeps are very UNmusical
13:24:22 dynamite_dude: I find it bearable though
13:24:25 Eat-Sleep-andJam: I just dont know how to apply it to long Stretched out things such as alternate picking excersises
13:24:36 dynamite_dude: it's a matter of sacrificing a bit to gain much more..
13:25:11 Kristofer Dahl: It doesnt matter if you are playing a wide stretch or simple chords...
13:25:40 Kristofer Dahl: long as you are counting evenly you can always play to a metronome
13:25:46 Eat-Sleep-andJam: hmmm
13:25:48 Eat-Sleep-andJam: so like
13:25:52 Eat-Sleep-andJam: one sex
13:25:54 Eat-Sleep-andJam: Sec*
13:26:01 Eat-Sleep-andJam: :p
13:26:26 jeff: typo? lol lol
13:26:44 Kristofer Dahl: freudian slip! ;)
13:27:05 Eat-Sleep-andJam: im looking for a specfic tab
13:27:15 Eat-Sleep-andJam: one momento
13:27:18 jeff: I'm drinking a diet coke -stomach about to explode...
13:27:27 Eat-Sleep-andJam: but some mentos in there ;)
13:27:28 Kristofer Dahl: so Jeff how is your practicing going?
13:27:30 dynamite_dude: guys, does anybody know the mr crowley solo? the first

13:28:52 Eat-Sleep-andJam:
13:28:56 Kristofer Dahl: I know I remember!
13:29:09 jeff: I've got it really nailed down though. Cross the left over right - me likes it!
13:29:19 Kristofer Dahl: Eat sleep: Countr to six in this example
13:29:41 Kristofer Dahl: That's awesome jeff - have you used it any recording?
13:30:00 Eat-Sleep-andJam: So for every note 1,2,3,4,5,6 or 6 notes per beat since its six tuplets ?
13:30:27 jeff: actually recorded Curius C a long time ago. But didn't finish it all:?
13:30:28 Kristofer Dahl: count to six and set the metronome to click on every "one"
13:30:43 Kristofer Dahl: That's a shame Id liek to hear it! :D
13:30:56 Eat-Sleep-andJam: Im using a online metronome though
13:31:03 Kristofer Dahl: Hey Tank!
13:31:14 jeff: I think I will finish it. It's just the last part that I haven't done.
13:31:19 Eat-Sleep-andJam: Ahhhh tank! Were not worthy,were scum
13:31:19 Tank: Heya Kris
13:31:48 Kristofer Dahl: Eat Sleep: Tank made a very good post about the metronome, have you seen it?

13:33:37 mattacuk: haha yeah!!:)
13:33:39 jeff: Anyone like Vito Bratta?
13:33:40 Kristofer Dahl: Ye sthe chat is awesome - Im thinking though, we should have the "members active in chat" mor evisible perhaps...
13:33:50 Travelin' Man: Hey Kris...was out fishin this past weekend
13:33:55 Ryan: Time for some stretching speedpicking :D It really gets you worked out :D
13:34:06 dynamite_dude: to be honest Kris, I've never noticed the members in chat thing
13:34:17 Tank: It might encourage more people to log in
13:34:21 mattacuk: Gabis Ywngie lesson 2 is really working my fingertips out
13:34:23 AliMo: I'm back, no need to worry:D
13:34:57 Kristofer Dahl: Yes - also I believe it's a bit false. Right now it doesn't tell about all the people that are here!
13:35:12 dynamite_dude: perhaps it doesn't update so often?
13:35:18 Kristofer Dahl: Gabs Yngwie lesson are so cool
13:35:19 mattacuk: could we possibly get a Cow sound bite kris?
13:35:19 Travelin' Man: the only one it doesnt say is here, is you Kris
13:35:20 dynamite_dude: i.e. set the update setting lower
13:35:28 Tank: I noticed that. It said 5 people were in when I logged on
13:35:33 Kristofer Dahl: They are a fairly "easy" way to get the Yngwie sound!
13:35:37 mattacuk: Kristofer Dahl they are some of my very faviroutes
13:35:39 Eat-Sleep-andJam: good metronome ?
13:36:11 Kristofer Dahl: cow sound? How about*meow*
13:36:23 Kristofer Dahl: *meow* hmm did it work
13:36:28 Travelin' Man: yes
13:36:29 jeff: I have clicked on a link in one of these windows before and it has kicked me out.
13:36:31 Tank: arf!
13:36:32 Ryan: WOW
13:36:34 Ryan: that scared me
13:36:39 mattacuk: haha
13:36:53 Ryan: i had my sound all the way up with the metronome haha wow
13:36:54 Kristofer Dahl: jeff: Perhaps a moderator didnt want you there! :D
13:36:59 Tank: Any metronome that keeps time is good ESaJ
13:37:12 Eat-Sleep-andJam: Im still learning how to use it Tank
13:37:17 mattacuk: personally i prefer "real" metronomes for ease of use
13:37:21 Travelin' Man: blocked pop-ups..wont let me see it ESJ
13:37:27 Eat-Sleep-andJam: not using the metronome is a guilty habit of mine
13:37:32 jeff: Wouldn't blame them either.
13:37:35 Eat-Sleep-andJam: let me try to find a different one
13:37:39 mattacuk: i may do a reveiw on the Korg model
13:37:44 AliMo: same here eat:(
13:37:44 dynamite_dude: off to the pub, good luck with the practicing guys, take care
13:38:02 Tank: I'm still using swing arm metronomes.
13:38:08 Travelin' Man: Kris...really interested in new format for lessons...when you think it will be out?
13:38:14 mattacuk: Tank that is very cool!
13:38:25 Kristofer Dahl: But they aren't keeping theexact time - are they?
13:38:26 Kristofer Dahl: :)
13:38:55 Kristofer Dahl: Travelin' Man We have already started adding the lessons to the database - but there is always lots of testing etc
13:39:03 Kristofer Dahl: I think we should have something to show in a month
13:39:07 AliMo: what new format?
13:39:16 Travelin' Man: true...thats a good thing
13:39:44 Travelin' Man: Kris is making it easier to get around the lessons sections, and adding some new ones for us beginners
13:39:45 mattacuk: personally i think there enough old lessons to keep me going !:D
13:39:46 Tank: Well it may be doing 124 when it says 120, but as long as its equal time between tick and tock, it's good to go :)
13:39:47 Kristofer Dahl: The whole thing is probably going to take a couple of months - it's a quite bi restructuring if it succeeds though! :)
13:39:48 Eat-Sleep-andJam:
13:39:51 Eat-Sleep-andJam: that should work
13:39:59 Eat-Sleep-andJam: anyone use this metronome ?
13:40:13 Kristofer Dahl: Tank that's right! How fast are thos emetronomes?
13:40:23 AliMo: That would sure help me outn travelin
13:40:53 Tank: Mine goes up to 200bpm
13:40:54 Travelin' Man: me too Alimo...i just dont know what to do, and need to be led by the nose sometimes
13:40:59 jeff: Kris, I dig your new UG theme song. Did you use amp or simulator?
13:41:17 mattacuk: i have been singing the UG theme for a few days
13:41:24 Kristofer Dahl: jeff I use both the amp and a pod simulatenoulsly
13:41:24 mattacuk: :?
13:41:25 AliMo: haha yea i know what you mean, so much content here its sometimes confusing
13:41:34 Kristofer Dahl: mattacuk hehe :D
13:41:45 jeff: Hey my metronome goes to 11 (spinal tap!)
13:41:51 mattacuk: "Ultimate Guitar.......UG!!"
13:42:04 mattacuk: Travelin' Man I worked through the entire 101 section first
13:42:06 Kristofer Dahl: Ultimate guitaRRRRR rather! :D
13:42:09 Travelin' Man: way confusing...I bet I have a libraary of PMs to Andrew
13:42:12 Eat-Sleep-andJam: Argh R.A.T.M get out of my head
13:42:17 mattacuk: i feel it gives a good gounding
13:42:21 Kristofer Dahl: I pitched my voice down to get that low grwoling sound!
13:42:32 mattacuk: its a really great track
13:42:42 Travelin' Man: Mattacuk...ur referring to the scales?
13:42:44 mattacuk: only knowone has any idea what im singing
13:42:47 Kristofer Dahl: Thanks! :)
13:43:04 Eat-Sleep-andJam: Metronome makes me extremley angry
13:43:09 mattacuk: Travelin' Man I mean, i worked though the 101 lessons section
13:43:21 jeff: mattacuk - we do! :D
13:43:31 mattacuk: Eat-Sleep-andJam metronome is your friend!:D
13:43:32 Kristofer Dahl: In case others missed this - this is what we are talking about! :)
13:44:19 Tank: that's a great track Kris
13:44:28 Kristofer Dahl: For those of you who are having problems with the metronome - have you checke dmy letronome lesson in the beginner section?
13:44:40 Kristofer Dahl: Thanks Tank! :D
13:44:42 Eat-Sleep-andJam: YES
13:44:46 mattacuk: thanks to the theory guys here im able to read music now, and it really helps with correct timeing
13:44:48 Electric_Blues: yes
13:44:52 Travelin' Man: problem, I ask myself too many Qs instead of just following the lesson plan
13:45:04 AliMo: yep ive seen it, I just find it confusing to use it with songs sometimes
13:45:16 mattacuk: Travelin' Man what lessons have you been working on?
13:45:21 Kristofer Dahl: Eat-Sleep-andJam well that must mean I did a pretty bad job explaining there... It still doesnt make sense?
13:45:39 Eat-Sleep-andJam: no sir you did a fine job
13:45:42 Tank: Heya Andrew
13:45:43 jeff: OH no Andrew is here. Tone down the language! lol lol
13:45:44 Eat-Sleep-andJam: Im just a idiot
13:45:49 AliMo: lol
13:45:50 Kristofer Dahl: Hey Andrew! :D
13:45:50 Travelin' Man: mattacuk Im still doing the scales
13:45:51 Andrew Cockburn: Evening ...
13:45:52 mattacuk: hi Andrew, fancy a trout? :p
13:45:55 Andrew Cockburn: Jeff, you;re banned ;)
13:46:09 Andrew Cockburn: Oops, how did you find out my guilty secret?
13:46:11 mattacuk: Travelin' Man have you tried the pentatonic lesson series?
13:46:15 Travelin' Man: hey favorite go-to guy....wassup
13:46:30 Kristofer Dahl: Eat-Sleep-andJam Well I would strongly suggest you got through it over and over..
13:46:41 Andrew Cockburn: HI Trvelinman
13:46:43 Travelin' Man: mattacuk in it now...really concentrating on one at a time, till I can see it in my sleep
13:47:00 Eat-Sleep-andJam: Do I set the metronome into 4/4's time regardless of what im playing ?
13:47:21 Travelin' Man: mattacuk Im still doing the 1st scale...Minor Pent
13:47:26 mattacuk: thats a good way to do it, i would work through those slowly because you can practice scales, licks, improvisation and metronome practice together
13:47:38 Andrew Cockburn: Saw Kris post thought I'd drop in and see what was going on ...
13:47:40 jeff: Is anyone going to do Walliman's collaboration?
13:47:45 Andrew Cockburn: I am!
13:47:48 Andrew Cockburn: Lydian for me!
13:47:56 Andrew Cockburn: Practicing it now
13:47:57 mattacuk: Travelin' Man thats how i started, once you know the shapes you can move them around later !:)
13:48:13 Kristofer Dahl: The collaboration seems to starting out really good! :)
13:48:18 mattacuk: so kris,
13:48:21 Travelin' Man: mattacuk kinda sceptacle about doing vid lessons before I learn scales..but I did get Gabes Blues Hustle ( I think)
13:48:25 Eat-Sleep-andJam: brb gotta help mom with grocceries ;)
13:48:27 jeff: I would really like to hear how it all turns out.
13:48:32 Andrew Cockburn: yes it is kris
13:48:43 mattacuk: i must say David O's Chords lesson put a big GRIN on my face today
13:48:50 Andrew Cockburn: I might cheat and harmonize my bit ;)
13:48:53 mattacuk: i think im a jazz fan without even knowing it!
13:49:15 Kristofer Dahl: Travelin' Man I definately think you should work on the lessons parallely
13:49:25 AliMo: i wanted to do the collab but i cant record :(
13:49:27 Travelin' Man: mattacuk I sorta already know the chords...I came to learn the scales and theory..never knew guitar had such
13:49:41 Kristofer Dahl: If you ONLY do theory you might get discouraged?
13:49:42 jeff: with the JEM of course!
13:49:53 Travelin' Man: Kristofer Dahl u mean scales and vidds?
13:49:55 Andrew Cockburn: Kristofer Dahl B;ashphemy!!!
13:50:09 Kristofer Dahl: hehe Andrew :D
13:50:18 jeff: Kris - you started it!
13:50:20 Kristofer Dahl: Yes Traveling!
13:50:23 Andrew Cockburn: kidding, a mix is good
13:50:27 mattacuk: if you do the video lessons your still learning scale boxes at the same time! i would suggest working through them slowly !:)
13:50:59 Kristofer Dahl: I had many live student who though the HAD to do lots of non-musical practice before they could begin with the fun
13:51:03 Kristofer Dahl: ...this discouraged them!
13:51:13 Travelin' Man: Andrew Cockburn I like Gabes slow methodical approach...I should stick with him for awhile...your too crazy :D
13:51:23 Kristofer Dahl: mattacuk eaxctly!!
13:52:02 mattacuk: I noticed from the start GMC is specifically design to get you playing like a pro ASAP
13:52:19 mattacuk: theory is definatly usefull, but only when your ready for it
13:52:24 Kristofer Dahl: mattacuk exactly! that's no to bad is it?!
13:52:24 Andrew Cockburn: I agree
13:52:26 Kristofer Dahl: :D
13:52:28 Andrew Cockburn: something you can dip into
13:52:30 Eat-Sleep-andJam: Mattacuk-David O's chord lesson really helped me greatly aswell :)
13:52:32 mattacuk: Andrew Cockburn not at all! :d
13:52:44 mattacuk: Eat-Sleep-andJam ive been playing those chords all day, there LUSH
13:52:55 Eat-Sleep-andJam: Beautiful stuff :)
13:53:01 jeff: Guitar is such an individual thing. Some folkd are very happy just knowing a few songs and couldn't care less about the theory or other things.
13:53:03 Andrew Cockburn: Maybe I should do some chord lessons then, I LOVE chords
13:53:10 mattacuk: i should like to start a Jazz band with Andrew, called "chicken fingers"
13:53:19 Eat-Sleep-andJam: Its one of those lessons thats easy enough to immediatley play along with
13:53:20 Kristofer Dahl: hehe :D
13:53:23 mattacuk: haha
13:53:24 Andrew Cockburn: lol
13:53:36 Kristofer Dahl: Last time I was in the chat I think Andrew was about to start a boy-band with Pavel!

14:10:09 Stratman58: Travelin', its a total matter of preference
14:10:20 Stratman58: Just seems like majority of GMC like Ibanez
14:10:28 Travelin' Man: but it seems the whole nation here at GMC all have Iba's
14:10:35 Travelin' Man: doh
14:10:41 Andrew Cockburn: Ibanez are shred machines, and most people om GMC are lesarning shred ...
14:10:47 AliMo: its actually a conspiracy within ibanez
14:10:48 Electric_Blues: i like ibanez for the floyd rose
14:10:55 Stratman58: True
14:10:59 AliMo: they are trying to get u to buy one
14:11:04 Andrew Cockburn: I have to say my Jem is the best guitar I've played
14:11:06 Tank: Ibanez just do that type of guitar exceptionally well
14:11:18 Travelin' Man: Andrew Cockburn they have the smoothest boards
14:11:27 Tank: I've got a Les Paul as well. They both get equal use on stage
14:11:39 Andrew Cockburn: smotherst bpoards?
14:11:42 Travelin' Man: hey Ryan
14:11:52 Travelin' Man: fret boards...
14:11:54 Stratman58: I've owned an Ibanez bass guitar for 4 years, which I got for $200. I have to say it has been the best bang for my buck of all guitar purchases
14:12:02 Travelin' Man: hey robiin
14:12:03 Andrew Cockburn: They have thin necks, nice pickups and an awesome trem
14:12:03 Robin: howdy ho
14:12:08 Andrew Cockburn: good combinatio
14:12:14 Travelin' Man: ah...thin necks...
14:12:18 Andrew Cockburn: hi robin
14:12:21 Travelin' Man: that should help me
14:12:34 AliMo: hey robin
14:12:43 Stratman58: Hey andrew, could you help me pick apart two prestige's that I am looking at (the guts, differences etc..)?
14:12:47 Andrew Cockburn: You csn pretty much get used to anything
14:12:58 Andrew Cockburn: Sure stratman 58 if I can
14:13:05 Andrew Cockburn: Im not a total expert though
14:13:09 Travelin' Man: some guitars have thick or wide necks..I cant play chords with those
14:13:30 Stratman58: I understand, but opinions from GMC'ers matter to me for sure
14:13:31 Andrew Cockburn: I lesarned on a nylon classical - after that anything is easy in neck eidth therme
14:13:34 Stratman58: let me grab the links
14:13:46 Andrew Cockburn: neck width terms i meant
14:14:08 Andrew Cockburn: Hey stratman PM me - I have to go now
14:14:17 Stratman58: Well, I don't have to link the 2550e, I think you're familiar with this prestige model? Comes with the H-S-H dimarzio's, double locking trem etc...

17:55:36 LanceB: im awake ;p
17:55:49 muris: hell yeah!!
17:55:54 muris: what's up?
17:56:10 LanceB: trying out that new lesson on Modes. How about you?
17:56:21 muris: cool
17:56:25 muris: just got home
17:56:33 muris: was out for 16 hours
17:56:43 muris: 2 reheasals
17:56:45 muris: tired as dog
17:56:49 LanceB: I bet
17:57:06 LanceB: maybe you should be sleeping and not chatting haha
17:57:07 muris: so,modes are going fine?
17:57:36 LanceB: Yeah, it helps to have one after the other to register the sound difference
17:57:50 muris: need any help?
17:58:14 LanceB: Well, I'm trying to break a bad habit if you have any advice.
17:59:11 LanceB: I can alternate pick pretty well at low speeds but once I hit a certain bpm I always start tremolo picking. So I have been working on stopping that
17:59:35 muris: ahh kind of slopy picking
17:59:43 muris: must take it slow
17:59:54 muris: and build up speed slowely too
18:00:10 muris: not just jump on much higher tempo
18:00:12 LanceB: Yeah i've been workin hard on that with the metrenome
18:00:24 muris: that's cool
18:00:30 muris: tempo is all that counts
18:01:01 muris: how longe have you been playing?
18:01:15 LanceB: about 3 months
18:01:29 LanceB: I've had a guitar for about a year but didn't play it
18:02:07 muris: and how old are you?
18:02:10 LanceB: 19
18:02:32 muris: that's nice
18:03:08 LanceB: If you say so haha
18:03:18 muris: and do you find yourself comfortable to understand modes?
18:04:09 LanceB: I understand that they sound different but I very new to theory and what they are used for
18:04:26 muris: I see
18:04:28 muris: well
18:04:41 muris: first try more over major and minor
18:04:56 muris: there are many great lessons in theory section
18:05:08 muris: and try to play it over whole fretboard
18:05:19 muris: then you'll easy get modes
18:06:06 LanceB: One more thing to memorize :(
18:06:28 muris: in general,just play :)
18:06:50 LanceB: I try
18:06:53 muris: every minute is great to achive something new
18:07:29 muris: if you have any questions about theory or something else,please
18:08:04 muris: i had hard day,full of tones so I'm ready to share :)
