Fingers crossed there's no permanent nerve damage, it is a very strange feeling and makes the working day tedious as I'm doing manual work nine hours a day.

UPDATE:Tonight I managed to play the pentatonic scale (shape 1) from the G string raking for each note. I have to really concentrate but I managed it three times in a row. I used a tip from a YT video where the bloke rakes by bringing his hand forward and picks near the neck pickup when raking. Works for me wink.gif

Soon buddy, I don't have much consistency with raking yet and I can't do it in the Poor Man's Blues lesson yet as I have to prepare myself for it but I'll get there.

Hola Gab, cómo estas?

Here is a take for my raking, I don't know how I managed to do three in a row the other night. It's one of the hardest techniques I've tried.

https://youtu.be/WAoLsCrnyxI


And here is the strumming. I'm not having much success with this but the thumb over can cause mild cramping issues in my forearm at the moment.

Hola Gab,

Some good news for a change, a client has cancelled their appointment with the physiotherapist tomorrow evening so they called and offered me the slot, one week early smile.gif

Now you're back home, don't forget to check out that TH-U patch I use for the Poor Man's Blues lesson cool.gif

Also, when you get chance, if you don't mind, can you check the bass on that track we've spoken about via PM please, you was going to see how it sounded on your system. Thank you.

For some reason I have gone backwards on that tricky lick in the PMB lesson, the quick one near the end. I'm currently looping it in my daw at 20bpm, then I'll have to creep back up to speed rolleyes.gif

Saludos

Hola Gab,

Cómo estas?

Further to my two other posts above, (did you see the two videos?) I have an update on my neck/shoulder issue.

I am the bionic man biggrin.gif

Part of my treatment is electrostimulation as in the video along with contrast therapy and exercises all at home and then acupuncture and manipulation at the Physiotherapist. I may have to go for a nerve conduction velocity test too if the first course of treatment isn't working enough.

The video does play if you click it even though at the moment it is showing as though it isn't processed.

Fingers crossed wink.gif

Hi Phil! How are you mate?

For any reason I missed these two videos. Here I go with the comments.

Ok, I can see that your raking is not consistent yet. The key is to find the right way to mute with the palm of your right hand and keep your hand in that same position. I analyzed my way of doing it and it's consistent for that reason. My palm is always muting the lower string. I recommend you to practice a bit slower and try to apply this trick.

There are some moments when this sounds good. You need to pay attention to two things:

- Timing: This is the main goal here. You need to be able to keep your timing precise and even add some dynamics to this groove.
- Mute the harmonics: There are some harmonics sounding when playing the muted strumming. Check our which is/are the string sounding and move a bit your left hand fingers to avoid the harmonics.

Yes, I've checked it and there are some little moments when there is bass sound at 125 hz that is not enjoyable. I think that there are some other problems around it as well, but I believe that the frequency that bothers you is that one.

The yellow range is a bit loud, and there is also lacking stuff in the green range.

Thanks for the advice Gab,

I hope you're feeling good being back home wink.gif

As you know, my treatment has started and these things often get worse whilst getting better so you'll have to bear with me over the next few weeks, we'll see how it goes.

I've been practising but tonight was hard. My nerves stretching exercises can trigger immense pain if I go too far, the physiotherapist said to be careful, I have to do enough but not too much, at the moment I'm finding the balance, today I've overdone it and have immense nerve pain at the moment, it doesn't stop the mechanics of playing but it's hard to concentrate.

Onwards and upwards eh buddy? Hopefully we'll get there without discovering any permanent nerve damage.
