If I sat in one of Pebber's videos and practiced until I could reach his speed....I don't know if I could ever reach it ? I can't guess how fast I could potentially play ? I have no motive to shred right now.Everyone is different, maybe you just want to shred ? If so, stay in the vids and practice daily until you can reach high speeds. Note: Don't just practice the scales Pebber demos over and over,,,Trill and Spider heavily. After awhile you will see your hand moving all over as if it had...

Do you have a musical reason to play that fast ?I don't have a musical reason to play fast, I pushed my self to the point of getting 300 bpm.After that I have been learning Giant Steps and focusing on that. Giant Steps has a tempo right around 290bpm.However I am not even at that point yet(solo). I am still working on the harmony and melody. Still trying to get the feel out of it. I have been working on the song for about 1 year now (I have only been playing for a little over 2 years).My poi...

That killed me haha...bravo. The problem is I don't think most people understand the amount of effort it takes to be a musician. I know I didn't until I started coming here. Over the course of 2 years I came to the realization on the instant gratification sprectrum, music(for me anyway) is on the complete opposite end of say ..watching a movie. Learning math, computer languages, etc falls somewhere in the middle for me.

After Holdsworth, I asked the people at the table if there was any fusion on Friday. I was told no fusion, but jazz at the highest level with Steve Kuhn. I have not heard of Steve(shame on me). He was there with Billy Drummond and a local bass player filling in. I will admit I don't listen to a lot of straight up jazz, but Steve's shit really hits. One thing that took away slightly from the concert were some fucking dipshits sitting up front and thought appropriate behavior during a quiet j...

I was a lucky lucky man in being able to see Holdsworth, Haslip, Husband perform over in Chicago last Thursday.Words can't explain the state I was in, all of his songs had such a different feel to them live. I found a clip from the show on youtube and wanted to share. After the show, I went over and sat in the bar to have a drink. Holdsworth and Haslip come into the bar and are sitting right across from me on the corner of the bar. I just about said something and then realized it is best to ...

well unable to post (some issue with uploading to my youtube account).anyway, my stats:Did not hit my goal of 60 bpm, i ended up getting a recording done at 50 bpm( i could only get 40 right off the bat ). I ended up with about 4 hours of practice just on this exercise this week.Lessons learned:minimize pick attack motionwhat I can expect for improvement in a 1 week timespan. i think in order to get the 60 bpm i would have needed another 12-16 hours on it.Comments:my timing sucks!

Like a kid rushing to catch his early morning Saturday cartoons, I await this weeks picking/lick challenge.It is the first day of a new month and this means my practice routine will incorporate new exercises. I just started doing a month long practice routine rather than 1 week and like the results. With the weekly challenge it will help keep things fresh.
