Sometimes I feel like I play ok other times I feel like I don't play nothing at all. Just a few minutes ago I was doing far beyond the sun, sometimes I feel like my AP sounds good but most of the time it doesn't, so, I train and I know it requires alot of patience but I don't know if I'm doing the right stuff...I always think about using the metronome but I seem to get a bit lost around it (saying things like this makes me feel like I don't know nothing and makes me get desmotivated sad.gif ). I know speed isn't that important to you, for me vibrato is everything but speed also helps, and you obviously took the time to develop it. Any tips you can give me on how to train, for example for Far Beyond the Sun?

Cheers
Filipe

Hi Filipe smile.gif

Well, first I want to say that it's exactly the same for me. Sometimes I listen to my playing and think "Hey, this sounds pretty good" and sometimes I just don't know why I even bothered to try play guitar in the first place. So that part of your question just sounds like normal to me smile.gif It goes up and down, sometimes you feel inspired and sometimes you don't. That's life! Best thing I've found is to stay away from the guitar for a couple of hours (or days, or whatever time you need) when It's like that (perfect time to study theory, btw) wink.gif

I don't have any specific tips on how to practice Far beyond the sun (even though I've practiced it countless hours myself). But if you find it so hard that you even lose your motivation to play - then you're not ready for that solo yet. Leave it for a week or so, and practice some other stuff. Then you can go back and try it again.

Thanks Marcus, maybe I'm pushing myself to hard, I'm not loosing motivation maybe I have tons of it and just loose it for some time due to the lack of speed to play certain songs, for example, your neoclassical etude, I can't play it full tempo yet, but it still sounds good to me if I put the channel clean and just play it calmly ^^
