Often we know what we're meant to be doing, and what correct technique is, but so busy playing it's hard to notice where we go wrong or why we are struggling to get to the next level/bpm etc.

A real life teacher is sometimes no more than an observer, that can just be a pair of eyes and ears to point things out. Especially with online resources like GMC.

So with this in mind I'm going to start video-ing my practices, I can then review things, and if I have the camera feed on my screen while I'm playing it might also help train me to stop staring at the fretboard all the time I'm playing (it's not the greatest way to build rapport or connect with an audience after all)

I can also upload it here to get another few opinions too.

This is a great decision man! This will help you a lot to improve. I agree with your thoughts about this. Practising in front of a mirror is also useful.

I started rehearsing with members on GMC video chat, so these sessions are recorded.

Good idea. I've made some recordings of myself and put some on youtube. I had to do a lot of takes before I had one that I was comfortable sharing with others. It's very good to watch yourself and look at your form and watch for bad habits.

Man, I totally agree smile.gif having a 'mirror' of any kind (physical mirror or camera) is always a good idea. When I rehearse with Aria, we record our sessions so that we may listen, look and correct what we do not like!

Yes, this is a very good idea. Although I don't film my practices I used to spend a lot of time looking at my hand positions in the mirror !!

I read that Megadeth often filmed their rehearsals too, and Dave Mustaine noticed loads of things that they were playing wrong !
