Pavel is a great guitarist. I'm not saying the quality of the lesson is affected by the very small mistakes he made, I'm saying that to improve his own technique personally if he wants to. I'm just offering some constructive criticism on his playing. The lesson is great as it is, and with the addition of a 101 lesson on sweeping basics, It'll be perfect. I just mentioned those so if he wants to fix some of his problems, he'll know what they are.

On the other hand, I wouldn't say I'm saying negative things about great musicians and guitarist, I'm just fronting my opinion on one particular musician. Some will agree, some won't.. That's how it goes and that's how debate develops.

Thanks for the comments by the way! As for the usefulness of the site, I'm really, really impressed with the site so far. Simply because there's nothing like it anywhere else. I need the site because I may have gotten good at the very basic techniques, but what I want to learn is how to create music, and why I joined was to study the 'Solo lessons' section as I really wanted to see what made each players style unique (I'm a big marty fan) and to fix the problems I have now.

Also, I remember exactly what my problems were with certain techniques so I could help some of the people out here because they're probably facing the same problems as I did.

All feedback is welcome and if you think i am satisfied with my level of playing - I AM NOT! That's why i practice 8 hours a day - every day. You can never be perfect - there is always space for improvement.

And one more thing - playing in your room, or on band rehearsals is one thing. You are much more relaxed and feel comfortable. But when RECORDING it is whole new thing so RECORDING is very difficult process to handle - especially when creating a lesson.

I am aware of all the little mistakes in the lessons - but the point in the lessons is not to impress you with my skills but to make you able to use the same tehcniques. Also - you don't even know how hard it is to talk and play at the same time - even the slow sections. (When saying: "Up-down-hammer on..." - it makes you f**** confused - because when i practice i don't pronounce the picking - i already know it and it became natural to me so i don't think about it.)

Stay cool - and practice!
Greetz, Pavel

It definitely IS!!! Sometimes i even pronounce the wrong picking and then have to start all over again! mad.gif It's like - i record all of the stuff - then review it on my PC and listen to picking and: "What the hell? I don't play it with upstroke but downstroke!" And then start the whole recording again hahahaha
