Hi guys,

What do you think about a mini guitar ?

Could it be good to work everywhere ? or the fact that it's smaller and also the space between the frets reduced (I guess) could make us keeping bad habits ?

I mean when working pebber's exercices, not for the sound, not for jamming sloppy.

I would think it would be ok for exercises like.....the trill.....and maybe picking exercises.
But it will tend to screw with you when you try to get back to your standard guitar.
I say buy a cheap standard and drag that one around....or is it a matter of space you are concerned with?

" buy a cheap standard and drag that one around" yep ;)

When you said it would screw me when returning on the main guitar,
I thought the same due to the smaller fret-space and body.

I remember pebber speaking about muscles-memorize.

So I choose a standard low-cost sized.

For example if I'm not at home I prefer transport and work on an electric guitar unplugged, bothering nobody.
Especially outside.

This is because I job, so I need to catch every moment to stop sucking with my "repertoire" -lol- of metal songs, with my sucking hands technique.

Just, with a small guitar, I pictured me better working like a geek at the bar's terrace with beers and friends huhu

You can find a.."back pack" guitar...which is just a neck with strings and a small sound hole for not too much $$....and work on the trill.
The neck is standard....but for left hand trill exercises it would be great!
But not much more as far as other exercises....a sort of last resort I guess...so you can get in those much needed hours per day.
