I have a question about what is considered correct in fingering. I define correct as the way most experienced teachers would call correct. To illustrate this look at this lesson Power Metal Rhythm in E minor, particularly in the middle with the runs up and down the neck on the 5th string. I suspect that this is an example of what would be considered "incorrect" where Carlos lets his index finger fly, but I am not sure.

I am not picking on Carlos here. He has not been around for awhile, and he really did some very nice lessons, very nice often simple compositions. Actually he is one of my all time favorites. I think Gabriel knows him. But he is a good example to illustrate the topic of my question as he does have that flying iindex finger on neoclassical licks. My question is, do most teachers tell you to keep that finger planted when you to the back and forth notes with the smaller fingers?

I have serious difficulty keeping my index finger planted when I get about half way up the neck and I am playing repetitive "index finger - pinky - middle finger - pinky" patterns. I think I may even have to physical limitation there with a tendon that makes it very difficult to play without lifting my index finger as Carlos does. Or perhaps I just need to work harder to stretch my muscles out.

Thoughts?

poly or nano? I read Adrian's recent thread, and ordered a set of nano Elixirs. Actually I did not know at the time that their are two types, the poly being a thicker coating. I like the nano a lot. Which do any of use use, of the two types? I use a stiff pointed V-pick, which I am saying because one gets a much clearer tone with those than with a flat pick, and if there are redeeming advantages to the poly coating, I might be able to get away with it, even if the tone is not as bright.

Interesting tomorrow. Andy Schleck leading by about a minute going into the time trial, but Aussie Cadel Evans a minute back, along with Frank Schleck, Andy's brother.

Thing is, Cadel is a great time trialist. Still the yellow jersey wearer tends to surprise people at times like this. Most interesting Tour I think since Lance's wins.

If you have never watched this, you might tune in the last hour, the top three go last.

Answer:

If you said "Sex Pistols", Very overrated band, because not only did they not invent punk, but they sounded awful (as evidenced by the fact that nobody listens to them anymore)

If you said "Ramones", better answer, as they predated the Sex Pistols by several years no matter how you define it, and the fact that they are sill popular is also a plus, but no, they did not invent Punk.

It was amazingly enough invented by Los Saicos from Peru in the early 60's. Listen on youtube if you doubt that.

I want it to be able to slow things down, listen and view it, as Windows Media Player does (up to 50% slow down) while maintaining the same pitch. Viewing it is important to me, not just the audio clip.

But I also want it to be able to set start and stop points within the clip. Say I am trying to figure out some 10 second section of something, I want to be able to mark the beginning and end of the section, and just loop though that over and over till I figure it out, so I don't have to keep manually going back to that part like 20 times with the mouse when I am trying to figure out something difficult

Oh I want it to be free. Anyone know of a player like this?
