I've actually tried on 3 different operating systems and 5 different browsers. I'll contact PayPal and see what's up.edit: what the fuck? I decided to give it another round of tries and got denied 7 times in a row and then suddenly it decides to go through. Makes no sense to me, but I got it now.

Thanks for making this. I just watched the video.I've been practicing since I last posted, and I've decided I want to go ahead and actually subscribe and get into this.Only problem is when I try to pay - paypal says the link that it came from is invalid.-I click the pay thing. -brings me to paypal-enter login info-says "The link you have used to enter the PayPal system is invalid. Please review the link and try again." when I proceed.I don't know if this is a temporary thing just happening now b...

"Hey thanks for posting your vid. I know you wanted to hear how great you were but don't expect it here. As a beginner though I was impressed by your playing, you are good, definitely beyond beginner status. I sure can't do the scale as fast as that. That being said my opinion means shit. So listen to Pebber. Slow the fuck down. Work on your technique. You're good so keep at it. Good luck."I didn't want to hear how good I was at all, actually. I wanted to hear what I need to work on; where to st...

Quote: pebberbrown wrote in post #19You need a lot of work. You lift your fingers up too far off the fingerboard, dont keep them planted down, you repeat the scale in only ONE direction on each string, picking technique looks really weak as well, you make the sliding noise when shifting positions, and the timing is uneven. Go back and watch ALL the chromatic scale videos and all the VBLOGS and then try again. This time add the Wholetone scale to it all.Well I've spent probably 3 hours ...

As of right now, it's being processed. I did it standing, when I do all my practice sitting, so it felt weird. Backwards I'm extremely sloppy and my fingers both ways are flying all off the fretboard; but having been practicing some of the spider exercises, it's far better than it was a few months ago.I just went up each string and down each string at a speed I felt comfortable with (although, I could slow it down backwards). I haven't practice enough doing things backwards, so it really messes ...

Nicholas - I have absolutely no idea what you're trying to say; but thank you anyway!

Well thank you both for your input. I'll definitely do the above, and I'll be around.I really want to finally learn this instrument I've been playing for 20 years, and this seems like a great place to get it done.Thanks again for putting up with all my questions.

My level is low. Very low. I mean - I can belt out early Metallica rhythm guitar in a lot of cases; but that's just learning how to play a song; not how to play guitar. When it comes to knowing how to play the guitar and with good technique, I'm at a 0/10.I'll start with the practice videos and see what I can figure out.There's so much information, and it's hard to know where to start and when to move to the next level; you know.My goal is to start with the basics and learn properly from the gro...

So what you're saying is don't worry about the subscription lessons; just follow the practice routines and post videos when I need help?

Thanks for taking the time to get back to me on this.One last question, if I may.Is writing down the scales and that other stuff listed in the "how to take online lessons" necessary, or can I just subscribe and start at the beginning and do the monthly videos? That page says its to tailor out suitable lesson plans, but if it's following a very specific structure, then it wouldn't seem pertinent to beginning the plan.I guess this is two questions, now... Sorry. Does one also still need this SkyDr...
