Hi everyone!

I've been teaching for almost ten years now, and you can check my youtube channel for my music videos and my students playing some stuff from my educational program.

Just to know how do I and my students play, couple of vids:

This is pure advertising, if you want to advertise your lessons then there are official channels to do that through.

The guitar playing is excellent, as is the sound (you using an Axe FX 2?)

You're going to need more time than by tomorrow if you want people to have a chance to answer, though.

Looks like you're purely going for technique? Some techniques missing :

Left and right hand tapping
Arpeggios and sweeps.
Creating harmonics
Whammy bar

cheers, Jerry

Zaphod_Beeblebr, advertisement usually means that you're going to sell something (lessons, subscriptions etc.). Am I?

jerrykramskoy, thanks! Yes, I've been using all that digital stuff for five or six years and have got rid of all that heavy and damn expensive rack gear, amps, cabs and so on.

As for tapping, sweeping and others: actually I consider that there are four, like, FUNDAMENTAL techniques that allow to play almost everything. If you work on riffs. picking, legato and combining these (yes, I segregate it to like separate technique), then you can play almost anything, because 99% of guitar licks consist of left hand technique, picking and treir combination, and riffs are riffs

In my educational program such things as chicken-picking, sweeping etc. are considered as "additional" (or maybe "advanced") techniques. But gonna shoot some videos dedicated to them too, thanks for prompting

For the purposes of this forum it doesn't matter if you're making money directly or not; by posting links tp your youtube channel without answering a question from another user your are directing traffic away from UG and considered to be advertising by the rules of the forum. There is plenty of clear precedent for this.

Good point, Zaphod. Hadn't seen it like that.

Free or not, it's still promotion and that's not permitted in the forums. If one of your videos happens to provide an answer to someone's question then by all means post it in response, but you can't just create threads to promote your youtube channel.
