    So this is what I thought we could do to get back to learning and make 2020 great again :ROFLMAO:
    I would like to challenge everybody who feels like participating to do a video based off a Lesson from the school. It can be any lesson or etude you want (besides maybe "how to hold your guitar"). And I want everybody to be able to participate.

    Here are the RULES:
    -
    record a video using what you learned from one lesson
    - don't play what was played in the lesson 1:1 but make something original
    - share it here and write which lesson it is based off and what you did in your video / what you learned in the lesson

    Here's what I want to leave UP TO YOU:
    - the length of the video
    - how complex or creative it is

    What I mean by that is that you can really do whatever you want as long as you base it off of a lesson. A simple chord progression you like? Go for it! Playing a nice fingerstyle melody based off one or two chords? Sure. Write a little solo using one position of a scale? Awesome. Rewrite a Nickelback song using stuff you learned. Or go full synyster and do a backing track, solo over it, create your own etude or record a whole song. Whatever you like.
    Maybe experiment with cool sounds on your amp to make your progression your own.

    Not sure if we had something similar before but I found it to be a good time to kick off a new challenge. So what do you think? Do you like it? Are you in? :D

    I essentially already do this weekly so I'll just link my next video into this. We did etudes once before.. making up your own. I did tapping as its one I rarely use.

    Does playing an etude in a different scale count? Because etude one is just a scale and that's the only idea that popped in my head. Guess I won't make a lesson but the idea is great and I'll watch them.
    Syn says to do them in different scales so you definitely should do it.
