Hi here


Today, as some other days, i liek to take random backtrack on Youtube and jam on.

Since some days i feel some change in my way to play, certainely the reward of my work with Todd.

So i have done a video take this morning, nothing intentionnal, only improv.

You'll find missed notes, my taping part was not planed, so it sound a bit weird..... like to whole video.

But i like to have you advices and comments




Cheers

Laurent

Congrats Laurent, I can see huge improvements in your playing (speed, bends pitch). Definitely your work with Todd gives you visible results wink.gif

I have two advice:
1.You hold the pick on the flat side of the first finger instead to the side of the finger. At some point this thing can gives you troubles. I made the same mistake and I played in this way more than one year. I will not lie to you and I will tell you that it's not easy to change this habit (definitely for me it wasn't easy). Few days you will have the feeling that you can not play but believe me it worth to fix this.
2. From my point of view I think you have too many picked notes. This thing puts a shadow especially over slower licks. Maybe would be a good idea if you will replace some of them with slides, bends, pull-off, etc. Will make your take to sound more fluid wink.gif

Keep on the hard work!

Very nice -

You are making quick technical progress so I haven't got too much to say about that - keep up the good work and be sure to prioritise your vibrato practicing. Your vibrato feels shallow and a bit uncontrolled.

Musically I can hear (and I know from before) - that you have a desire / need to just jam away. You have got a lot to say!

This is awesome and can be a big advantage, make sure you try as many new backing tracks as possible. Don't be afraid to try completely new styles and sounds. The more new things you try - the faster you will progress (even though it might not always feels like that in the short run).

Yes that's how it is! It's important to play over new kind of music just because it's fun to try (it won't sound good in the beginning - and that's not the point either).

I tried to upload pictures but the file is larger than the available space. Anyway, I found a very, very old video made by Darek. It's about alternate picking but at 0:38 you can see how he hold the pick.
Of course there is no "right" or "wrong" way to hold a guitar pick but sometimes a tiny detail can be helpful. For me this helped me to increase the speed and also gave me a complete control over the pick wink.gif

Exactly, you understood what I wanted to said. In your second photo is very visible that it's on the flat side of the first finger (it's exactly how I saw in your video). Just go with it to the side of the finger (like in the photo that I sent you on FB). When it's in the position about I'm talking, in the moment when you will press on it with the thumb, you will feel the resistance of the bone of the first finger not the soft part of the first finger (I wish to know how is named this soft part of the finger in english tongue.gif). This resistance will give you stability.
