Show your finger skill by competing against me in a TYPING TEST! You may remember thinking "what am I ever going to need typing for?", well, this is why!! Random contests to help you win cool stuff!!! I LOVE iron age picks. These are very well made and very well designed. Also, the bag is cool.

Quick Secret: Learning to touch type was one of the things that got me over the hump in terms of my hand speed. it taught me hand synchronization as a separate skill outside of guitar playing. When you are typing at speed, both of your hands are working together, just like on guitar. Also, you can't look at your hands! You must look at the screen to see if what you are typing is actually correct. This is similar to not looking at your hands when you play. Typing has a lot of transferable skills to guitar and I'm hoping other folks find that out as well.

Yup, not a solo, a bit of typing. Just go to https://www.typingtest.com/

and use the MEDIUM TEXT, 1 MINUTE TEST

Well... I have to admit that I am as slow as a typer than as a guitar player...
I barely reached 29 wpm.. and that was with an easy text! sad.gif

Todd, will you set up a "keyboard bootcamp"? biggrin.gif
