Hello everyone,
it has been 10 years since I last posted here. I wish I could say I now have 10 years of guitar experience but that's sadly not the case. In the past years, I played a bit but no serious practice. I don't think I ever learned a complete GMC lesson at the time I was here. I renewed my subscription this month and already learned 3 beginner lessons. So there is some progress now smile.gif
I started with the Paradise Lost Lesson and the Metallica made easy by Gabriel.

At the moment my main problems are:
-Timing (Dotted notes still don't feel natural to me). Also when phrases start on an odd beat like 4+
-Lack of Music theory (Don't know any scales yet beside the a minor pentetonic)
-No musical ear

The GMC lessons I learned already helped a bit with the first point but timing is still always an issue with more complex phrases.
I also looked into learning music theory.

Welcome back Skalde, I wasn't around back then but it's good to see you return smile.gif Looking forward to your journey.

Regarding your ear, mine isn't too good either, check out my thread HERE and please let people know what you think after a few days wink.gif

See you around

Welcome back!!! Todd here smile.gif I'd like to invite you to join BOOTCAMP!!!! It starts at the very start and works you all the way up through SHRED GOD. Just send me a Personal Message and I'll get you started!! Also, dive in to the COLLABS as you see them pop up, they are a great way practice soloing.

Hi Skalde! I remember you! smile.gif Welcome back to GMC!

I'm here ready to help you so send me a PM if you'd like to have a thread in my personal board to ask questions and let me give feedback every time you share a take.

Enjoy!

Welcome back Skalde, I remember you!

It's good you have identified some specific problem areas.

If you take a step back, and let us know what is your biggest wish within music - ie what would you love to be able to do/play some time in the future?
Skalde
Gabriel created a thread for me on his instructor's board. I made a post there.
For the near future, I would like to be able to play this lesson until the end of the year: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/rhythm-gu...-rhythm-guitar/ At the moment this seems a bit over my current level, so I am focusing on easier lessons for now.

Very nice (and super classic!) lesson.

I am just about to head towards your REC takes now - but it's very good to know your goals.

edit -

So watching your playing it struck me that what you need might be something straight and fairly simple - since you say you get lost when there is something more complex happening rhythm wise.

Have you tried this kind of lesson?

I think it could help you build a solid pulse foundation, making it much easier to feel where the odd beats are etc

Great recommendation. I am going to learn this lesson next smile.gif

Thanks for the recommendation this has been quite a frustrating app for me in the last day laugh.gif
Some of these intervals sounds so similar to me. I need more work on this.

I worked my way up to 100% with the common note set, I'm now on the first section without common notes, ascending minor and major seconds, I can't get more than 80%, it's a great app though smile.gif
