Hey there Maajong! This here, is your personal mentoring thread, so let's see
what are your favorite styles and where do you see yourself as a player? You told me you are a beginner, but I am sure you have aspirations so, it would be important to set some directions
Looking forward to your answer!
the styles that interest me most are Rock, Bluesrock and I would love to get a little into Metal.
My skills are very basic. I can play some major and minor open chords (A-/C-/D-/E-/G-Major, A-/E-Minor), two fingered power chords, try to make my fingers get used to the fretboard by practicing minor pentatonic scales (the basic pattern), c major scale, blues scale and 3 or 4 simple melodies.
I dont know many playing techniques, I´m a little bit used to palm muting and hammer ons (alway practicing to get them sound like a stroken string), bending, but struggling a lot with pull offs , cant get them sound without causing so much unwanted noise.
So my first goal is to master the basics, and learn to use them in a creative way. So that means that I am also very interested in the theory behind making own riffs, licks and maybe own songs.
Ok, I think thats enough so far, looking forward to your hints.
And by the way, I´m from Germany and my English class is about twenty years ago!
