If it were easy to undo a "bad" or "improper" technique, then the World would be much more full of insanely good guitar players! Alas, there is no quick "3 Secrets To Becoming A Master Picker In 1 Week" like we have all seen peppered all over the internet. That is a SCAM, run by strip-mall guitar "instructors" who are only there to fleece the pockets of generation after generation of aspiring rockers, be-boppers, thrashers, and punks.From my own experience, it took me at least 6 months...

Hi GuitarStyles88!Keeping at it, I see,,,and I am LOVING it! Before I get to your questions below, I just wanted to point out the following:1) Place the camera back a couple of feet, so we can see the entire fretboard. Your right-hand-technique is clearly visible throughout this video, but we only get snippets of your left-hand technique.2) You are "flicking up" on those upstrokes, so try using a more "smooth" approach by focusing only on your thumb and index finger (and not the wrist).3) There ...

So I tried disabling the hardware acceleration, but it did not work. It turns out that it was my "No Script" that was blocking Vimeo! Needless to say, I was finally able to view this, and this is a FANTASTIC video. I am so glad I was able to see this! It took me a solid 6 months of practice before I was comfortable enough with this techn...

Quote: Farelli wrote in post #5I can still view it. It's a Vimeo video, if that matters.Yeah, I was just emailing GuitarStyles88 back and forth, and he mentioned this being a Vimeo video, as well, and that he can still view it, too. I jumped right back on here, but I still cannot view this video for some reason. I wonder what I'm doing wrong. Can anyone assist? THANKS IN ADVANCE!!!

LOL,,,,it's all good, Connor! I was very confident that you were not doing that on purpose. Hey Man, you have a FANTASTIC ATTITUDE and you work hard. Just keep doing what you are doing,,,,you will grow by LEAPS AND BOUNDS before you know it! Pebber and I see it constantly with the more dedicated students

Hi Connor!So, your "self-critique" was spot-on. You know what you need to do to tighten up the video length & editing (I go into much greater detail about this in my responses to some of your other videos on the Forum).Really no need to say this, but Pebber is absolutely right. Now, I LOVE the fact that you are challenging yourself. I still do it to this day! However, we need to recognize when we are "putting the cart before the horse," if you know what I mean. If I'm lost, confused, and/or have...

Hi Connor!Once again, Farelli hit the nail on the head! I agree with everything he mentioned. There are a couple of VERY IMPRESSIVE moments here, my friend....WOW!!

Hi Connor!Looks like I am working "backwards," since my first introduction and extended review was in response to your most recent video (The "In my 2nd Month.." thread). In case you are seeing this post first, my name is Adam Steinz, and I am an administrator here at PB Guitarstudio FORUMS. I'm VERY happy to see you here!Anyway, Farelli pretty much summed it all up, although there are a couple of things I can add:1) A Friendly Reminder: PLEASE refer to Pebber as "Pebber" (not "pepper"). Now, I ...

Hi pinkmoonman!My name is Adam Steinz, and I am an administrator here at PB Guitarstudio Forums. Thank you so much for posting this video! I watched it and would like to share some things with you:1) Video Length & Editing: As you can imagine, Pebber gets HUNDREDS of videos like this each month. I know this, because he often sends a handful my way for me to review. It is highly suggested that we try to keep our videos no longer than 2 - 3 minutes each and just focus on one exercise at a time, as...
