rolleyes.gif Hay Great players !!

I hope you get not anoying be me ?
But this site is becoming an imported place ,to me learning playing that guitar as YOU do ! smile.gif
I have got now exelent advice from a couple cool players here ,that i have to re see me practice !
Sommething like this !!!!! cool.gif

Maybe there are some foundation concepts they should work on first. A good teacher can provide instruction/material that should have you seeing steady progress, as long as you are putting the time in.GMC instructors are great at doing this!

You are so right about practice, its about finding solutions to what you are having trouble with. If you practice with no aim, could leave you learning very little. It's only when we push ourselves that we get better

Well, based on the second video, it seems that your index finger is too close to the head of the pick.. I think that this could be a problem because maybe this finger is muting the string a bit. Your hand should be a bit more relaxed, yes, tension is another problem there. At the same time you are picking too fast, you should start slower trying to get a regular timing and the same volume for upstrokes and downstrokes. In the following link you will find some tips and exercises from my Technique Course.

It's best to go back to the basics..very slow picking ( down .up down up )and don't try the little tempobursts for a couple a days.
When tension rises it's always a bit of a problem . ..you know it..
And indeed creating nice clicks.. you have a good angle though....try all strings too cause this is a very important aspect of playing

Gabriel posted a good training there .and there's also the "picking hand basics" lesson from Mister Higgins! succes !!


And of course the explenation on the chatvid ,from Master Ben ,
So, i have ordered the stylus pic tho loose me bad habbit ,to DIG IN always that pick !!
So ,the day that are comen ist' PICKINGTIME !!!THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR HELP !! smile.gif wink.gif

Hey Guy, hell no.. we're not getting annoyed by you. This is what the forum is for ! smile.gif

It's good that you are making full use of it and hopefully it will encourage others to do so.

There is one thing that you may find annoying though.. 'Annoying' has 2 n's in the middle ! tongue.gif (Sorry, I couldn't resist !)

P.S. Who is the lady playing guitar in your profile pic ? Nancy Wilson maybe ?

The STYLUS PICK!!! smile.gif I must say I found that pick VERY helpful in working out my Alternate Picking technique. It forces the hand to adapt to helpful picking mechanics. At least that was my experience smile.gif It makes you realize how NOT to dig too far in to the strings and how to use the very tip of the pick.
