Just in case BillyRae pops back up, I didn't want to leave his post just sitting there without any comments, because he did go through the effort to post a lot of videos for us.Good stuff, Bill! I like the way you incorporated the backing track, as well. My only issue is that it cuts off way to quickly at the end!!

Quote: deltadiscos wrote in post #6Theres a great video of Pebber playing live where he removes the thumb from the back of the guitar and plays like this. He also does it in a speed video on youtube.Hey deltadiscos and Farelli, If either of you can find one, or better yet, BOTH of those videos, please link them in this thread...Nothing better than seeing the Master at work!!!delta, that was a SPOT-ON call on your part ---- VERY well done, my Friend!!!

Quote: Farelli wrote in post #8 I'll do some moving around the neck on the spiders. That's a good idea. You know, deltadiscos bought up a great point, and I'm glad to see you caught on to what he was saying. I was actually going to mention this, but I figured you were just showing your exercises in one position for the sake of saving video time. Anyway, I'll do these from Low E to High E, then back, and then move up a fret...I'll usually go to the 12th fret, and then I reverse everything.Again, ...

Hi Farelli!Left-Hand Form is SPOT-ON, and your timing is excellent (once you dialed in the tempo accordingly). I really like how you were able to make adjustments "on the fly," and quickly dive right back in -- KUDOS to you, Sir!!!

Hi Farelli,That's AWESOME that you came to your realization! To build upon Paul's idea to try to create a "drone" and play along, another good way to practice how the modes "fit" or "sound" in a certain key is to download the free MP3's that Pebber has of one note being played for the entirety of the track.If you have trouble locating these, please let me know, as I can just send them over to you!

Hi muldar3000!I have always maintained that 10 minutes of practice per day is better than NOT practicing at all. Do whatever feels comfortable to you, but I will say that if all you have is 10 minutes, work on the same exercise, if possible.Also, for something like Sarod picking, it can take 6 months to a year, or even longer, to really develop it enough where you can incorporate it into your playing. Some students are able to pick up things a lot quicker than others, but typically, the more ti...

Hi muldar3000!There really isn't a "right way" or "wrong way" to play those Long Pattern Pentatonic Scales. Me? I will typically assign 1 finger per fret, meaning that is I am playing frets 5 & 8 on the low E string, I will play 5 with index and 8 with pinky. For a stretch like frets 5, 7, 10, I will adapt my fingers accordingly: 5 = index, 7 = middle, 10 = pinky and move on to the next string. Now, if you are then playing fret 12 on the same string, you can work on sliding 5-7 with index, 10 =...

Hi muldar3000!I concur entirely with Farelli: You need to be your own gauge of what is comfortable versus what is "too much." Having said that, you do NOT need to "dig in," or press "super hard," as that will inhibit your ability to play fluidly.If it gets to a point where it is "tingling" or "numb," then you are pressing way too hard and need to completely stop the exercise. Sometimes, all you need is 5-10 minutes and a good shake-out in order to be able to continue, and sometimes, you'll need ...
