Hi ztevie,

great topic .. i always have problems to integrate those scales in my playing and to make them sound like music smile.gif
I will try it out, maybe this time it will work... it definitely sounds interesting.

Beside the topic ... damn, i would like to have your right hand picking skills.
The inlays of your guitar are exceptional beautiful.

Thank you and good luck !!

Hey!
Integrate scales is really only a matter of learning the scale. You shouldn't have to think where you should put your finger next time, your fingers should just flow within the scale without too much thinkin, if you know what I mean? If you know every note of the scale all over the fretboard, then you're there...

You can have my right hand picking skills, just give me your address and you'll have it in the mail next week! laugh.gif
I don't consider any of my skills anything above the ordinary, but thanks for those words, it gives self confidence a boost! I have always liked to pick every note, it's just something that suited me and I developed to do, on the other hand I suck at hammerons/pull offs..

Yeah, those inlays were suggested by the luthier that built me the guitar, and they are 3 different exotic woods, as you can see their different colors... Even the pickup-rings are wood, ebony.. And the cavity plate on the back is wenge-wood.. THese guys like wood, not plastic...

I voted for you Ztevie and congrats on your accomplishments. I like your style. Very smooth and melodic.

When I watched it I was reminded of a young John P. (Dream Theater). Got to meet him in my younger years working at the local music store. Set up the show at the time and he gave me a CD along with some great advice.

Very motivating to me at the time, just as your lesson is now.

Congrats

"Think of a guitar solo as a paragraph. You need a clear beginning, a middle, and an end. Look at musical phrases like sentences, and make sure you break them up using punctuation—or space. You pause naturally when conversing, right? If you don't, you'll bore the listener. The same thing will happen with your audience if your solo is one dimensional. You'll wear them out and lose their attention." —Tom Principato

Thanks so much, had never expected such nice response from so many! Really motivates me to make another, and improve myself.
UncleSkillet: Wow!! Reminds of young JP? Ok, i'll quit the guitar now, i dont need anything else in life! Altough i am lightyears from his technique and playing, he is one of the players i admire most.
Thanks! :-D
