I’m having trouble uploading a riff and also starting a new forum topic I thought I’ll share the video here instead, since what I’m really looking for is feedback. Any and all observations are welcome, especially on my technique. I decided to showcase this week’s progress with a little improv session using the concept presented in lesson 10. I used a looper pedal. EXTRA INFO. You don’t have to read this next part, this notes are my “personal progress log”. I’m sharing them in case anyone could find them useful. The Synyster Gates School. 1st week of progress. This week I watched lessons 1-10 and practiced the concepts therein. The most useful lessons for myself personally were: Lesson 4- How to hold the pick. Something so simple made a huge difference in my playing. Lesson 6- The Guitar Fretboard Layout. I was fairly familiar with the notes on the fretboard, but this lesson lit a fire under my ass to learn them all. I’ve been practicing this every day by making it part of my warm up. Lesson 7- The major scale. Again, I already knew this concept, but this was a GREAT opportunity to do an in depth review of the major scale in every key with different fingerings. Lesson 10- Another concept I knew and use often, but I loved how simplifying the pentatonic scale to 6 notes pushes you to be more creative with limited choices using rhythm, intention, dynamics etc. 6 likes December 11, 2018 at 5:49 pm #181906 Dan ShipwayParticipant I wish my first week went like that, already you have made a flying start, I cant wait to see your progress over time! 1 person likes this December 11, 2018 at 8:02 pm #181912 Ekrem Taha ÜnlüParticipant That’s a very nice start Ailee! Just you should more practice on your bends. According to a week’s student, you’re awesome! I just know, you’re gonna be a awesome guitarist! Keep working and have a nice day! 🤘🏾 1 person likes this December 11, 2018 at 9:37 pm #181919 Aileé Guerra AréizagaParticipant Thank you very much guys! Just to clarify though, I am not new to guitar I just mean my first week of progress here at the school. Thanks Ekrem! I will work on my bends for sure! One of my favourite things to do! 🙂 1 person likes this December 12, 2018 at 1:13 am #181921 Dominik RógParticipant @Bartosz holy crap! sounds awesome! 0 likes December 12, 2018 at 8:35 am #181922 Sayonil MitraParticipant @bartosz…that was amazing. It is one of my fav songs. \keep up the god work. @ailee…the melody is of your improv is awesome. Just want to add 1 or 2 things. Work on your vibrato. in this case, a slower vibrato with more stretch in it may sound better. make the vibratos bigger. hope that helps. keep up the good work. 1 person likes this December 12, 2018 at 10:09 am #181927 Ids SchiereParticipant @ailee Sounds great! Very Melodic I like it! If you want to you can be a little bit more aggressive with the vibrato. Also, try to think a bit about inflections(slide, rakes etc.). Keep it Up! I think my first week was a lot worse than this😅 1 person likes this Author Posts Viewing 15 posts - 16 through 30 (of 119 total) ← 1 2 3 … 8 → You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
