Hi all,

Owned an electric guitar for 10+ years, learned 5 chords and all the bad habbits tongue.gif Now I've signed up with Kris it's time to actually start playing it!

I came across Kris' method via UG after following a few Pick N Grin videos posted there (cheers Pick, they were great!). After following the link to freelicks, I tried to play the Sweet Child Of Mine solo lesson. Ok, so I'm a million miles away from playing most of it anything like up to speed but after a few hours I'd got a lot of it down and for the first time I actually sounded like I could play biggrin.gif I signed up here a few days later and am now practising the basics every day, desperately killing off what little I had learned the wrong way. Yes Kris, always up & down strokes with the metronome! I'm playing 4 note per string vertical runs (16ths) at 70bmp, if anyone cares - don't laugh pro shredders wink.gif

Quick question for us beginners though. I've simply been doing the metronome lesson for 1-2 hours every night and tonight I found my hand muscles and wrist ached a little so I stopped and am giving it a rest. Is this normal or could my technique be wrong? My poor little pinky has never been used before so I tend to work that extra hard! I notice it's mostly that that seems to be aching. Clearly I don't want to do any damage but I feel like I'm slacking giving it a miss for a night!
