No, I don't think so. You sign up, and you follow his curriculum. I'm not sure why you would want to limit yourself by pre-defining what you think you need. If I were you, I'd let the master show you what you need.

I randomly came across agreat example of scalpel picking in action. Search youtube for Babymetal's performance of Gimme Chocolate on the Stephen Colbert show.

Thanks for the replies, you guys. I think I am going to take the arduous journey to try to change my picking style to Pebber's sarod-scalpel hybrid. My wrist cannot even make that damn sarod motion as of right now!

Yes, I had a teacher who taught me the modes this way. I was initially surprised to learn that Lydian was the most inside-sounding (knowing nothing more, I would expect Ionian). But my ear agrees with the list; I definitely prefer the sharp-4 sound of the Lydian scale over the natural fourth in the Ionian. I guess the half-step clash with the fifth is more appealing to me than the half-step clash with the third.My teacher would have me play the modes in the way most learn: Playing the relativ...

You're spreading yourself too thin. Spending five minutes on an exercise or learning a song is probably not enough to make any headway on the exercise or song. An hour is not a lot of time, so don't divide it too much. As a rule of thumb, my minimum block of time is 20 minutes to spend on an exercise and, even then, I don't feel good about only spending 20 minutes on something. Pebber's preferred picking technique is a combo of scalpel and Sarod. In theory, if you were able to get these tec...

Hi Eric123,You must subscribe to Pebber's online video lessons for, at its cheapest, $15 per month. This will gain you access to Student Level 1 videos, including Music Theory For Guitar Vols. 1A through 1F. The rest of the music theory videos (I think there are six parts) will be released to you as you progress and demonstrate your knowledge.
