Beginners Corner

Feel pressured or nervous to put your beginning accomplishments up with those shredding out 32nd note sweeps? Firstly, you shouldn't. Secondly, this place is just for you! This is the BEGINNERS spot where you can feel comfortable posting your first riff, song, whatever!
Posting this in my media as well now that the contest is over to go back to this in the future and see if I'll progress. Also, I had fun and I'm proud I got to create something of mine so I want it in my medias 😂 Suggestions are always much appreciated!! Have a good day/night synners 💖

M.I.A practice

This’s is the most practicing I’ve ever put into a song. And also most proper! Using proper picking technique and such. I also love the buildup in this song right before the solo. I’ll try and post more progress Videos as I go 🤟🏻
Finally got the time to record something for here XD Green Day is one of my favorite bands, so I decided to try learning "Jesus Of Suburbia" (at least the first of the five parts lol). I still have trouble changing the chords but so far I'm having lots of fun playing it. Gotta keep practicing!
It's been quite some time since my last upload and activity on the forums, but I didn't forget the School! About a year and a half I started working on sweep picking, I recorded myself and posted the video here ( At this time, it was a very hard technique for me so I didn't really work on it. I decided to come back to it two or three month ago and I tried to practice more efficiently, training the two hands separately, with a metronome and while recording myself to hear what were my mistakes, and I improved till I could follow 100 BPM. Then I decided to make a second video today so I can track my progress, and maybe get feedback from you guys.
Learned the intro to roman Sky by ear by watching a7x play it at the Grammys. I start to trail of and play my own stuff once I get to the chords but it's been a while since I've uploaded anything so I thought I'd share this.
Been a while, $ynners! How are ya? I’m learning a new song and thought I would share. This took me about five minutes to learn so far. For the ones who followed me from the beginning, how’s my playing seem now? Can you guess it?
As the title say, this is the first time I managed to learn part of a song by ear and I'm really happy!! It's a little step in the right direction for me. I was messing around with my guitar and hit a note that really sounded like the first note of the Welcome to the Black Parade Intro..I checked what note I was playing (yeah, I have to properly learn my freatboard 😬) and indeed it was a G note (emo kids know!!), so I went from there and tried to get the whole intro by ear. I think I made it😭🖤 of course, suggestion and corrections are always welcome!
So I wanted to practice this cause I feel like I need to improve on alternate picking. It is of course slow cause I didnt want to rush through it. I made a few errors cause I not only get nervous in front of the camera still, but my pinky finger is still weak so training that bad boy up. But all in all, can't wait till I'm able to play this a little faster!
I'm backkkk! So last time I posted my practice of the first half of this solo..seemed right to post an update with the whole thing. The second part is especially hard for me because it has a lot of bends (at least for me 😂)..Bends are still a work in progress 😅 Anyway, any tips on getting rid of that extra noise? I really don't know if it is a matter of practice, or if it has something to do with my fretting hand doing something wrong?? Any suggestion is appreciated! (I'm working on my rhythm and palm muting too with Enter Sandman, hope to post that soon 😁) Quick Edit for more complete infos: backing track is not on full speed, it is at approx 90%.
After improvising yesterday on this backing track...The final melody hit my I tweaked if a bit and fooled around.
This backing track has 2 Dominant 7th me butcher those Diminished scales run!

New Guitar Day!

Finally I got a new guitar!
Practicing the first half of Bat Country. It has been roughly a month since I first started trying to learn this track. I still get so nervous when recording so there are some minor fuck ups in there, not to mention I still have no idea what I'm doing when editing these videos, but still an improvement over when I first started trying to learn it!
This is the first guitar cover I have ever done. I don't really know what I am doing when it comes to making a cover video, but I had fun doing it! I am still very nervous when recording myself playing, so I may have made some errors, but I had fun regardless.
Here we are with the update on my one month challenge (and since it's already Sunday here, I will count this as a Synner Sunday too 😝)! Still a lot of work to do, but that's where I am at right now after a month. Had to cut out the solo (part of the song I didn't play because got lost 😂) because Youtube would have blocked it. Let me know what you think and if you have any suggestion🖤 I'll keep practicing this for sure!
Sorry about the sound quality of my recent videos. I dont have my computer to help me edit any of this stuff so I've just been recording it right from my phone using my TV to play the backing track. I hope you guys enjoy the video. Just trying to practice adding embellishments to my playing.
This is pretty sloppy playing on my part but that's why I'm practicing. Timing and Phrasing is something that I definitely need to keep working on. Any const...
playing with some pentatonic patterns that I learned from the SGS community and even tho it may not be much it's a huge step for me in my journey with my ins...
Playing with the CAGED patterns
This is not that impressive but to me this was a huge step as I was never even able to come close to putting notes together like this before I joined this community.
Practicing the intro of Tonight The World Dies, using the strumming pattern that my good friend and fellow SGS student, @[78120:@Batbia], taught me. I should be playing it on the acoustic guitar, but I need to change its strings first, so here it is on the electric.
This needs A LOT of work, but just wanted to post an update trying to play along with the original track. As always, tips and suggestions are much appreciated. Happy Sunday 🖤

Fade to black riffs

Trying to work on standing and playing and not resting my hand so hard on the bridge that it pushes the notes sharp.
