I guess when you look at it from the point of learning there is a diffrent perspective. You should always try and practice in a way that trys and makes you play with the best tech.

I think that making music should be out ultimate goal and how we do it should only be a minor concern smile.gif

What's the most unusual/unconventional manner of playing you guys have tried and what results did it yield?

I never ban people for using any of mentioned but unfortunately some Young players with no instructor care can easily misunderstand the purpose of using those and stop their own developement using those as an excuse.

Good points Ben smile.gif


Yes, good points. This is the other side of the coin. People often rely too much on a 'gimmick' instead of their own creativity !

It's a good thing that you ask your students these questions... I hope you make them hit the floor and give you 200 push ups if they don't give a satisfactory answer ! biggrin.gif

I think picking with the guitar pick over the fingerboard was about as unconventional as it got for me in trying new things. I'm quite conventional in my actual physical techniques.

Damn, I'm boring laugh.gif

What about Jonny Cash's trick on putting a bit of paper in the strings

That same idea came up earlier smile.gif Some folks use fret wraps to help out when their muting needs a bit of assistance or other various reasons. Was generally not counted as cheating smile.gif Whatever works to help you play what you are trying to play is probably pretty ok at least til you can play without whatever it happens to be I'd guess.

The line I drew in the sand was using guitar pro and acting like you were playing it yourself smile.gif

Ha ha biggrin.gif They're usually not satisfied thatmuch when I make them do things the hard way smile.gif It like"How? Why? Couldn't I just do it this way?" I say...no because You have to be ready for everything if You want to be a good player someday. Let the time decide where the compromise is and where not...buit never go the easy way at first smile.gif
