The temptation of uncomitted variety, and adding to routine.

One of the concepts that Pebber stresses numerous times: sticking with exercises and working them long enough to gain (some) mastery, instead of jumping from exercise to exercise long enough to fiddle with each but without spending enough time to play anything well.

Thus far, I've been able to stick with a handful of exercises from Module 1 (and a few from Module 2), and have vastly improved on them over the past 4-5 days.

Exercises of focus:
1. Picking single strings, for long periods of time.
2. LH Tremelo, until my arm falls off.
3. Picking A min pentatonic up and down on fret V.
4. Neo-classical pattern on high E, and Neo-Classical pattern on adjacent strings B and E.
5. Ascending triplet pentatonics
6. Spider exercises, walking with fingers 12-34, 13-24, 23-14.

I'm tempted to move on. But I think the key is going to be to keep repeating these patterns, and ADDING new ones. No flitting about, but increasing skillset.

Tomorrow, I think I'm going to start spending time picking up and down the strings from low to high and back again over an E7Sus4. Worked on this for a while today, have the sense that I can mostly keep up with the video, but I'm shaky and inconsistent.

"The ones that do it every day get real good. The ones that don't, don't. It's real simple."
