Ok,

So yesterday i took a guitar lesson again. I take private lessons who is really expensive. Last time I was there i learned Another Brick in the Wall by Pink Floyd(with the solo). Yesterday he was going to help me improvise in minor scale(we played in D). So he showed me some really cool licks and stuff and made sure that I managed them and stuff. So I was like WOW when the lesson was over. If I use those licks I would really be a hero. But when i come home, ****! I've forgotten evrything! I've always had a bit of trouble remembering the solos, but normally i can just listen to the song and find the licks in the scale. But now, I dont remember how it was all sounding like. What do I do? Have anyone else got this problem? I'm trying to remember what we was playing and i know for example that it was some stuff about playing in the first position then climbing down to 3rd position on some cool way. But when I'm trying it just sounds gay.

next time bring a binder and write down what you learn. what i took lessons everything that was taught to me was written down. just tell him you've forgotten, no big deal

Don't just let him SHOW you things... Ask him, how the licks are build, what scale it is played... name chords, name notes... With a little theoretical approach, you'll be able to remember them better, maybe not 100% precise, but always it's better to know what you are playing, then just playing it...

Take a notepad and pen with you, and ask him to teach you English!

How did you forget what you were "learned"? I believe the correct word would be "taught"!

get into the habit of writing things down if you have a **** memory. also, learn english..."Everything my guitar teacher learned me"...that should be taught...simple things make you look silly.

Given the grammar in the title, it seems you forgot everything your English teacher "learned you"

Everybody wants to be a Grammar Nazi these days.

Seriously though, ask your teacher if you can film the lessons for home practice / reference. He may be reluctant incase you distribute the lessons, but I'm sure you two could work out some sort of nondisclosure agreement.

I've highlighted a few mistakes. There is also a severe lack of punctuation. Before you shout at others for not knowing two languages, learn how to construct a sentence in one.

Can we please just give a sh*t about language? As long as we understand what we mean, there is no problem

Ok, serious post...in order to remember the things your teacher taught you, try writing down the things your teacher shows you, or maybe video it like everyone else suggested.

saphrax: ur rite...my written english is terrible ...but i speak it fine

NORGE FTW!!!

Actually, smartypants, learn can be used to mean 'instruct in' or 'teach'.
