Didn't originally plan on uploading this as I started recording stuff this morning just to document my own progress. However, I figured it'd probably help my motivation to put it out there and want to improve on it later! Apologies in advance for my background, rambling, etc. So here we go, me learning the absolute basics, which @[5:@Jak Angelescu] encouraged me to do after one of my vids on Instagram!
My next goal is to revisit my Kakariko Village cover thing on my Instagram and learn all of the notes the chords use, so I can gain a better understanding of what I'm doing! I'll also most likely be going back to the CAGED system stuff with this as well! Hopefully this will give me enough to do when I take small breaks from trying to sweep!
First practice of the year, and first lil bit of progress! I'm working on A7X's Lost as I said I would be, and for the most part, I know the notes for the intro! Now just to figure out how to tidy them up.. This song's gonna be tough lmao.
(And for once... there's a video of it coming very shortly )
Just wanted to drop a lil note here and say I hope you're all having a wonderful day or night where you are, dear Synners and Systers! If you're practicing rn, I hope it's going well! If you happened to mint a Deathbat over the past few days, I have my fingers crossed for ya that you get the one(s) you wanted!! If you're just chilling, I hope you're having a good time! Much love!!
Thought just crossed my mind... I'd love to surprise my dad by learning some Rockabilly guitar... For years he'd tease me about playing some, so I'd like to actually do it. I wonder if there's anyone here who knows a bit about that and can give me some pointers?
For reference, I'd like to learn some Stray Cats or Vince Ray stuff.. Maybe a good idea for some lessons?
AND I FUCKING SMASHED IT!
+ Distinction* in Music Performance (highest you can get for BTEC)!
+ A in my Music Technology A Level!
So thrilled right now!! This course taught me a lot about performing and learning to record! Hopefully I'll be able to share something again soon, but for now... I'm just over the moon! Thank you to everyone who gave me support when I was stressing about college, you guys are amazing
Today officially marks the one year anniversary of my mum's passing. I don't say it for sympathy though, not at all. Rather, I say it here because it was this community that helped me through the darkness and managed to bring a wonderful light back to my life. And I wanna thank every single one of you, both staff and students, synners and systers alike, on behalf of myself and my fam for all the love and support you showed, and all the strength you guys gave us since that day. I'm so grateful for every single one of you, and I love you all dearly. Keep shredding and keep being fucking amazing, everyone!
Doing some major scale work today! Figured it's about time I learn something other than the 1-3-5 one I already know, so I'm doing some other positions as well and reviewing the lessons. Figured out what song I'll learn alongside that too, a track called "Graze the Roof"... from the Plants Vs Zombies soundtrack.
Welp, it's official - I'm freeeeee! Now I've got a stupid amount of time to delve back into the lessons from the start (For the millionth time, LOL) and finally make some real progress! Hope ya weren't getting sick of me beforehand
Officially finished up one half of my college courses today, and things are looking seriously good at that!! Can't wait to have more time to dedicate to guitar!
How do I upload a riff?
What's a C Major scale? @Dominik Gräber is being mean to me.
I don't feel like I fit in here
How come Papa doesn't write me back?
Why isn't Syn more active here?
I want your attention
Can you practice the guitar for me?
How do I post a forum?
How do I play guitar?
Can you hook me up with a free lesson from Bill?
Thank you so much to the kickass SGS team and all the students for the amazing stream! It was awesome to see everyone, there were some seriously great questions and answers, and I thoroughly enjoyed it! Thanks for answering my question, @Syn Gates + @Brian Haner Sr. ! Can't wait for next time!
Spent the last few days working on releasing my new EP with a good friend (Now available, by the way!), and now I can go back to working on my technique again! Working on learning a few new scales too to keep things a bit more interesting!
