    Hi everyone,

    are there still people here who are practicing these days and willing to go on
    learning following Pebber's methods, get in touch (here or by sending private message).

    We can still help and motivate each other, more experienced players and students could
    help the ones who progressed less by now.

    People could still give each other advice and suggestions on how to practice some things or how to learn them (at least by pointing out the best Pebber's youtube video on some concept).

    Even such small things as for instance saying this and this .mp3 from Pebber's site
    should be used with this and this .pdf to practice this and this concept as Pebber shows in this and this youtube video (if any).

    We can do it here, or make another forum someplace else as this one is no longer maintained, or make any other kind of community to somehow be there for each other on our guitar ways and keep the memory of Pebber and his teaching,
    and save it from being lost and forgotten.

    If no one close to Pebber continues offering his pre-recorded videos for sale, we could, like Drazzirg suggested in the previous thread make it a task to form some place where we could gather and share the materials and those videos (for instance make them available to anyone who can provide some "proof" of being a serious student and subscriber by sending a video-swap link where one can see Pebber's feedback in the comments or an excerpt of a zoom lesson, or forward his welcome to the lessons e-mail or something like that).

    Share and give your ideas and thoughts on the matter but try and get in touch if you are interested and still love learning guitar as Pebber taught it.

    Cheers,

    Silvije

    Forum post by McFly. Topic: Pebber’s Legacy

    Hi Drazzirg,

    saw your comment on reddit ( I posted something along the same lines there).

    Pebber made so much stuff available on youtube, but of course pre-recorded videos for subscribing students
    were much more detailed and thorough.

    It is hard to know whether those subscriber videos and materials will ever be made available by someone
    in the future.

    I would also like to have those at some point as they are pure gold.

    Since we don't know will someone close to him continue selling those videos, should we allow
    for some period of time to see what happens before we share those subscriber videos.

    I don't even know how to find out about that or who to ask for that matter
    (even if I did it might be too early to ask people close to him about such stuff).

    Anyway, hopefully, at some point interested students will be able to acquire those videos somehow.

    I tried contacting some of the forum members who were recently online or studying with Pebber recently
    through private messages to see what is their opinion or current student status, but haven' received any answer yet.

    In any case, really sad for his family and friends, and a great loss for his students and the guitar community in general.

    Pebber was simply great.

    Yes it was really sad to hear Pebber passed away.

    Unique person and great teacher.

  • Here are some of my picking practice videos with some
    fretting hand stuff added.

    Picking on one string all down with chromatic scale and chromatic shifting
    NOTE: I should really be picking the notes on he 16th and 1st fret twice
    in the first half of the video



    Picking adjacent all down with ladder 3-4 and chromatic angling
    NOTE: Not really a proper way to do ladder exercise (each note should be picked only once)
    here I just used it just to keep fretting hand busy while picking



    Picking down up with permutations and extended pentatonic pattern
    NOTE: Shouldn't be lifting fingers after playing a note while doing permutation



    Picking down up with pentatonic pattern and while holding down a chord




    Cheers

  • Hi Roger,

    good to hear there are others still engaged in the battle :)

    Seems like you are not just hanging in there but doing really well.

    To my eye scalpel looks rather good,
    timing sounds fine too (at least to my inexperienced ear)
    and it looks to me you have developed strength
    in your fretting hand fingers.

    Congratulations on the effort and the results so far.

    Keep in touch. Make a post here and there.

    Hopefully others will post a video or a comment too
    and we can make this forum a bit more active again.

    Cheers,

    Silvije (aka McFly)

  • Hello I'm new.DateFri Jan 22, 2021 3:22 am
    Forum post by McFly. Topic: Hello I'm new.

    Hi, welcome.

    It is not about where we are at the moment but where we will be in a month or a year : )

    My experience is that one needs to start with focused exercises and not spread too much
    especially when you have little time in a day to practice.

    Picking and timing

    Pebber always advised me to keep practicing only quarter notes for a (long) while so that timing can sink in.
    I try hard to stick to that although I occasionally try note subdivisions as well.

    And keep the focus. No distractions of any kind : )

    Left hand exercises

    I personally stick mostly to trills and spiders for now (I am with Pebber for some 8 months or so
    and manage to practice cca 5 days a week for one hour, progress not fast but I feel/believe it is there).

    We need strong left hand fingers (hence the trills) and we need to be able to control them (hence the spiders).

    General

    No use in trying to practice at high tempo if fingers can not follow. Practice at tempos you can manage and
    over time one should be able to push tempo up gradually. On scalpel picking and ways to practice Peeber has many
    free videos on Youtube. To help out a bit I tried to find most useful ones and I listed them in my posts entitled
    Class 2020 for one string and adjacent picking. Pebber also made a list of picking hand videos in one of
    older posts. I believe it shouldn't be a problem finding them here on the forum using search.

    The hardest thing is controlling one self and staying away from trying to play that amazing solo from one's favorite artist
    and not practicing the drills with focus and determination. But the drills will take us where we want to be in the end :)

    Keep at it. Push yourself even when you don't feel like it until it becomes a routine like morning coffee, washing your teeth, having lunch or whatever else we do on a daily bases. It is sometimes hard but there is no workaround :)

    Cheers

    Forum post by McFly. Topic: Hi all, I'm back

    Hi,

    can you post some videos?

    Share some thoughts and insights?

    Tell us where you are at this moment regarding your practicing?

    Cheers.

  • Topic by McFly. Forum: PB Guitarstudio FORUMS

    Hi all,

    hope you are safe and well.

    I was wondering are there people on the forum who are actively practicing at the moment.

    Where are the videos, comments? What are your thoughts and troubles on your guitar adventure?

    I will put up some videos in the next few days. Hopefully there will be some videos from you as well.

    As I said before I am also a student of Pebber's myself and am not really qualified to judge on other people's videos
    but by posting them we can still get something good from others sharing their thoughts on what we do.

    Post a video, share a comment or a thought. Let us help each other. Sometimes a bit of encouragement is all we need : )

    Cheers.

  • Class 2020, September, Picking AdjacentDateMon Sep 21, 2020 2:09 am

    Hi everyone,

    hope you have been practicing and that there will be some videos
    from you. Either here with adjacent picking or in our thread on picking on one string.

    My adjacent picking videos below.

    Here I tried 3,4,5 NPB and the timing is not good but this is where I am at right now



    Following Pebber's advice I do my practicing as quarter notes

    down up 3,4,5 NPS as quarter notes



    all down 1,2,3 NPS as quarter notes



    all up 1,2,3 NPS as quarter notes



    Comments are welcome.

    Find the time and find the will
    until you can play do the drill :)


    Cheers,

    Silvije

    Hi everyone, hope you are all OK and doing well in these weird times.

    Time to be brave and go from 1 string picking to adjacent string picking.

    Pdfs we need are the same as before.

    Relevant Youtube videos

    Picking basics part 3 a

    Daily Practice Module Part 1 (old 2010) from 1:10:30

    Right hand daily practice review (first 20 minutes or so)

    if you know better ones for adjacent picking please post links or titles of videos for everyone to see

    Don't forget, practice all down, all up, down-up with different time subdivisions

    Hope to see some practice videos during first half of September

    Stay safe.

    Cheers,

    Silvije
