Nothing like recording yourself to see how much you suck

I've started videoing my practice and have already seen some things I've missed whilst playing

Lots of mistakes in this one!

This one I noticed that when descending I have occassionally put a downstroke in rather than a pulloff

One day I might get to a decent speed!!!

I've been practicing this 9th chord arpeggio and all it's diatonic friends for the past week and felt to use a different fingering descending felt more natural, I was interested to see if it was a lack of finger independence on my part or what other guitarists with better technique would do!

Those lovely people at Coursera are running Pat Pattison's songwriting course starting today. Anyone else jumping on this to get their lyrics in shape?

Something that completely escaped me in my many years of playing guitar, because of the genre of music I played for many years, which has been folk, country, mainstream rock etc. Is how hard rock, metal and instrumental guitar music doesn't tend to use the same type of chord progressions, or progressions in the same way. Often whole verses use a one or two chord vamps or the same bass note with different chords on top.

This is some thing, that took me ages to realise especially once I understood modes, but couldn't apply it to the music I played due to very diatonic chord progressions.

This is one thing that seems to be missing from guitar instruction, and especially when teaching modes.
It's all well and good telling people to use a drone note and listen to the sound of the different modes, but very few people show how to create a chord progression to use to play a certain mode.

I've got the Andy Timmons Resolution tab book, that Andy actually verified the tab for, and it's really enlightening to look at the progressions
