* 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?

OK... I hope that I can give you some Ayuda!! laugh.gif
You could learn other scales and modes, but the most important thing for me is to began to listen other styles of music that open your mind. Listen to it and try to learn this music and to make improvisations over it. I don't know what music do you like but I will suggest you some albums (that I have in mind at this moment) that I really like in different styles:

Guthrie Govan - Erotic Cakes
Astor Piazzolla & Gary Burton - New Tango
Bullet for my Valentine - The Poison -
Vertú (Stanley Clarke, Richie Kotzen and Lenny White) album -
Juana Molina's albums (Argentinian Strange Singer)
Opeth - Damnation
Jeff Bluckley - Grace -
Pat Metheny - Beyond the misouri Sky
Radiohead - Paranoid Android
Chris Cornell's first soloist album

What music do you listen to?

I dont really like have a preference but I like Rock and its many variations and everything that involves good guitar solo's. Lets say AC/DC, Anything with Slash playing guitar, ZZ TOP. Some comercial bands like All American Rejects, Santana...
I am always open to hear new stiles and bands so I really apreciate your sugestions. Let me try to post a short demo I recorded while learning how to record with my Pod.. Maybe if you hear you can give me some more advice.. just dont be to cruel... and a newbie.. =)

Here it is huh.gif laugh.gif

yes Kris! That album is so great! I didn't have its name in mind when I post it. I love his singing and his composing abilities. The harmonies that he uses in his songs are amazing and in the new album he continues exploring it. He also come back to some irregular rock riffs like in the Soundgarden music. My favourite songs of the new album are No such thing (What a beautiful verse and main riff) and You know my name.

I have a new Cornell's unplugged album recorded in Sweden. Have you heard it?

Nice! smile.gif Good guitar sound. There is a problem with the sound of the drums... the phase is being canceled and that why it sound with a flanger effect.
My suggestion: You have to try creating more melodies. The solo sound like if you are walking in the scale. Try to create phrases (Check my firsts blues licks lessons where I talk about that).

Keep on practicing!! smile.gif

Ah no I haven't - thanks I will look for it!

I agree it's cool that he adds more and more of soundgarden riff to his songs. Let's just hope he does it because he wants to - and not because of record company directions! laugh.gif

I also like "killing birds" from that album - it's cool to practice vocals with blink.gif
