HI Ray,Going through this thread form the beginning you can see the improvement in your hand mobility and coordination. (I wish mine was progressing as quickly as yours! I still have difficulty in keeping my little finger curled in when not in use & doing the 1,3/2,4 spider exercise!)I can't comment on your technique as I am further behind you in this learning process, but I would say that you are the most regular contributor on the forum (since I joined) and I find it most encouraging to see.

I'm also using the Deva Grip Tip picks, Yellow, red and gel, can't decide which I prefer! I would also agree that they are easier to hold than other makes, I find that a standard pick slips around in between my thumb and finger when doing scalpel picking after a bit, its doesn't with the Deva ones. This from a beginner still trying to keep time when doing the basic right hand exercises, so I'm not sure my recommendation is worth that much!

Which reminds me that I need to record some of my playing this week to see what yo all think Paul

Hi dehowe85, need to put all 3 lines together to make the link, the site won't let me post a link, possibly because I am relatively new and don't have many posts yet. I don't know for sure.Paul

Hi Ray,Thanks for the information, you are right I did try to upload all in one go, never thought of the data limit! I try it again, although mine don't look as neat as yours, I couldn't be bothered with having to try and add them to the original pdf, too much stopping and starting. It was much quicker by hand but legibility is the down side The file sizes are too big so I have uploaded them to Dropbox, it won't let me post it as a link so here is the address: (you need to add 'h t t p s : / / ...
