PB hopefully this is what your looking for. I wasn't sure if you wanted just a single string video, or one showing string skipping like this one has. I struggle with timing as you can see, but it has improved since starting your course. I notice some people have a more exaggerated thumb movement than I do, is this necessary, or am I doing alright? Also, what is the right bpm for me to focus on?

I registered and paid for lessons as aut0m4tic1@gmail.com but the forum wouldn't let me register that email so I used coryn7fv@gmail.com for the forum. Not sure if that can be fixed on the back end, no big deal if it cant, just wanted to clear up any confusion.

Hi n7fv. timing looks ok to me and picking looks ok you could always curl that right hand in a little. can see plenty of movement in the thumb.

I like the way when you hit the B string the top of the thumb pops over the top to say hello lol.
maybe something to take a look at
good video though.

If you are signed up for lessons maybe a good idea to send the video link direct to Pebbers student email address for a quick response.
you will always get feedback here as well though so keep em coming.

Oh also slow is the way to start you want to be able to think of every little nuance as you play, like finger placement keeping fingers curled in, finger pressure, timings, then as you speed up, those things will stay with you.
Remember playing fast is playing slow accurately, just sped up .

You think you practice enough.......YOU DON'T!............PRACTICE MORE! Darryn U.K

That's tons of info to digest and practice.
The thumb is my #1 enemy. I broke it 2 yrs back in a motorcycle accident, and it's never regained it's strength. I spent and hour practicing today mostly just to keep an eye on it. My hand was very sore afterwards, but I kept proper form.
How often do students normally post update videos? Monthly, or as often as we receive a lesson? I just don't want to get too far off the beaten path right out of the gate here.
