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!
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 just love this melody!
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 ear..so I tweaked if a bit and fooled around.
This backing track has 2 Dominant 7th chords...watch 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.
Back on this solo!! I first tried it in november and quickly quit after barely learning the notes of the first part 😅😅(I'll leave the link of that video at the end of the desciption if someone wants to check out where I was at with this) BUT!!! we are not quitters, so I got back to it with the tutorial by @[4668:@Alicia Willis] (check that out!!!). I'm playing without backing track or metronome so it's not on time, but I hope to get that done for next week! As always, feedback and suggestions are welcome and appreciated. Happy Synner Sunday fam🖤 https://syngates.com/media/synner-saturdays-beginning-to-learn-the-warmness-on-the-soul-solo-the-struggle-is-real.4355/
CC Always welcome! For not being motivated for creative endeavors for the last few weeks, I finally picked up the guitar tonight. Didn't do much other than run through Do Re M...
Hurrying up and posting before I change my mind ! 😂
Was originally only going to show this to Jak because of how nervous and shaky I got. But here it is. As most of you know, I struggled a bit with maintaining my rhythm around the solo and lost track. Got a better hold on that now.
Hi, guys! So, I just started learning this part of the song, 'cause I thought it would be easy and it would give me some motivation to keep my practice routine going. I know, I should start using a metronome. But I thought it was harder to play with it (?). It got me really confused. Is it really hard, at the beginning, to get used to the metronome? Does anyone have any tip/advice to share about it?
Here goes my first day of the One Month Challenge! I chose this song because it's something not too much complicated (I think) so that I don't get discouraged and, most of all, because I love it and it's an absolute classic. Lots of work to do. The different fingering for the chords it's kicking my butt 😬 See you with this in one month 🕦💫 tips appreciated 😊
Hey so I’m back!!! Covid has been really rough for me the past couple weeks and I decided I was gonna take a break from the school and social media but now I’m back!! So here is my progress on bat country so far! I’m taking lessons with bill every other week and he asked what I was working on and I told him this solo and he said he would help me with it! Turns out I was playing parts wrong, no shock there since a7x tabs are so inaccurate lol so he corrected the messed up parts by ear for me and we started! He gave me easier finger placements and ways to play and that helped so so much! I got a long way to go but I’m so proud of myself!! Thought I would tell people that you shouldn’t be afraid to ask for help when needed! I was scared to ask for help with this solo but when I did it helped me improve so so much! Take lessons if you can and utilize all the tools on the school and you will improve so so much!!
