Hi, i'm attempting to learn your Wisdom Lesson and i can get it down somewhat but it sounds some what sloppy and it's hard for me to stay on tempo specially during the arpeggio parts i feel like i tense up or something on half way.. it tends to happen to me on fast parts. What advice do you have for me in that aspect?

download "tuxguitar" ( unless you have guitarpro ) slow it down until it is slow enough you can play it perfect , then gradually increase tuxguitar until you can play the peice at speed

Hi man, I would say that it sounds just as simple as the fact that you're just trying to push it faster than you can go at the moment. I know it's a boring answer to hear but it's true smile.gif

A lot of the time it's because the fretting hand still isn't sure or 100% confident with where it's going. We might know intellectually what we're meant to be playing but the hands themselves have not gotten accustomed to the patterns. Memorising the patterns is one thing but really being able to go through it with confidence is another thing. Just give yourself enough time to get it right before pushing it faster.

agreed! I just need patience, what really gets frustrating is the fact that there's days where i can nail it then others where it's just like "what the heck*" and it gets disappointing at times
