P.S. One thing you can do to add a percussive sound and to get that fast picking type of tone is to lightly palm mute during your alternate picking. Here is an example. Notice how relaxed my RIGHT HAND is during the picking. Very important smile.gif We are going to work on this during the sat/sun video chat!



That's a killer lick Todd. Did you have to call the fire brigade to hose down that fretboard ?

Even though fire retardant is already a thing, you could still bring out your own brand and people will buy it anyway.. just give it a different name !
