He has the extensive experience in different approach to guitar teaching which are easy to implement .The good part is that he has the exposure to different styles (indian ,western,classical )which make the learning very enjoyable and worthwhile.He is easily approachable and accommodate session based on one's availability.

"The content of the class is great. Every lesson has a backing track which helps in practicing after class. Ramesh is very friendly and have good skills. The only thing which I didn't like is the group formation. Try to take a group where people are of your level else it becomes a problem for beginner as well as advance player to learn at the same time. "

"It has been great learning with Ramesh Sir,He has a very good knowledge in the field of music. His studio is set up very well and neatly. You don't have to carry your guitar. he has electrical , acoustics available with him. The guitar lessons are organised in a way that you will learn guitar along with songs in every lesson ,the way the course is designed help you understand and learn different chords ,scales,songs. It may be a riff or arpeggios etc... He takes 3-4 students max in a batch to concentrate on each individual and helps where you are lacking and gives practice exercise accordingly along with the regular lessons.Its very good for techies who dont have time and can learn guitar with him by following the simple exercises provided in each module. Even he customises the package if you are experienced guitarist. Timings are comfortable and if missed any class than it can be clubbed in next class or extra class will be given.Even he helps for any queries on call or emails. Overall its a wonderful experience and great learning experience and to meet a nice person who has lot of knowledge in this field. "

"My experience with BGA was fulfilling. Being a beginner guitarist already, I wanted a course that focuses on building the areas I wanted expertise in. Thankfully, Ramesh has customized the content as per my requirement. He identified the areas I lacked in and gave me exercises to improve. Surprisingly,I could see the change in less than two weeks. Ramesh is very knowledgeable and passionate about training. I would highly recommend BGA. "

"How much time will it take to learn electric guitar?" in   Music/Instrumental Music/Guitar, Music/Instrumental Music/Guitar/Indian Film music

Simply put the learning process will start the day you pick up the acoustic or electric guitar!! It may just take 30 minutes to learn a simple melody and to strum a chord. So practically you have learnt to play the guitar in just 30 minutes. But then it all depends on your goal as a guitar player. Learning the guitar is a progressive approach and you build the skills over a period of time. If your goal is to only learn chords, strumming techniques and learn few songs and instrumental pieces, then probably in 6 Months you will be good at it. If your goal is to be a versatile electric guitar player across genres, have good soloing skills, learn in depth of scales/music theory, learn to use multi-effects pedals, ability to compose your own music etc., it may take anywhere between 2 to 5 years. The time frame depends on your commitment and practice and more importantly be under the guidance of a good guitar instructor with a well structured curriculum and training method. So just pick up the guitar and start learning and everything else will fall in place.

"Music Math : If i am with rock guitar jamming with someone . the key i find is Am . which modes would make the best solo. A. A Aeolian B. D Dorian C. G mixolydian D. E Phrygian" in   Music

Using Modes creatively is a bit complex and is related to the chord progression, harmony, music theory etc.. The best way is to jam along with backing tracks and explore using various chord progressions and modes.. In the example that you have mentioned , all the modes are basically the same A minor scale notes that are played starting from each of the scale notes. So if you are jamming against an A minor track you can use any of the 7 modes and all of them will sound great as they are all the same A minor scale notes. Basically the 7 modal √ʬ?¬?shapes√ʬ?¬? of A minor helps you solo across the fretboard. But to improvise and create great solos you need to effectively use the consonant and dissonant notes, interval ideas, various soloing techniques etc.. For example if your chord progression is Am-Dm-G-Em you can try the following - For each of these chords try hitting any of the chordal notes. For example with the Dm chord, the D, F and A notes will sound great - Try using the dissonant notes to create tension in your solo and resolve it by hitting a consonant note - If you know the 3 notes per string shapes of the 7 modes, you can play some cool fast runs - Try using arpeggio ideas against each of the chords - You can also use the A Harmonic minor and the 5 pentatonic shapes of A minor against these chords to create a different feel to your solos Cheers..

"What Guitar strings should I use?" in   Music/Instrumental Music/Guitar

Guitar Strings come with various gauges. Selection of strings is based on various factors like tone, ease of play, feel etc. Best thing to do is try different strings gauges and find the one that suits you the best. The Light and extra light gauge strings may be ideal. D'Addario strings are one among the best brands world over.. Cheers !!

"Which way is better to learn guitar Online classes or Local Guitar classes ? if it so Why ?" in   Music, Music/Instrumental Music/Guitar

Both the options are good as long as you can find a good teacher !! If you are planning Online Lessons find a teacher who can teach you "One on One" on Live Video. If you meant online lessons that are available in YouTube or other online sources, mostly these are all random material and you will be lost in a short period of time. Having a good teacher and a well structured curriculum is important to learn the Guitar well. Cheers !!
