Hi Gintaras, You will find there's plenty of free videos by Pebber online already to keep you busy for years but, in case you are not aware, a lot of these are excerpts from the syllabus that's available for paying students. I think the others who have signed up will agree that they are well worth the price. I'd spend some time working on what's already on youtube, then definitely sign up later. If you go through the older threads in the forum you'll find that a lot of us got lots of extra mater...

Hey dlraben, That is precisely how I (try) to mute so I guess I will just have to pay more attention to it and put in some practice. I do have an electric guitar as well and play with some overdrive/distortion so that should help too. Vids coming soon... ;)

Hey guys,Thanks again for the feedback everyone!In particular dlraben, I can't tell you how much I appreciate your advice. The method you and Nick mentioned about how to identify which hand is slower and your point about chromatics at 7 notes per beat not being the best way to increase speed helps me a lot. I'll make a video with the exercises on the link you mentioned and another one in a week or so, after pushing the weaker hand to see if there is any progress. I'm hoping the more control I ha...

Hi guys,Thanks for the feedback mr gurgle and Nick! Interesting thoughts on the fretting hand not being able to keep up. I guess it makes sense as the fretting fingers move a larger distance. Nick, good idea about practising just legatos separately. In fact, focusing on each hand separately, then working on synchronising them may be the way to go for me. I remember, after a hand injury I was only able to do left hand exercises and noticed a marked improvement (while the picking hand sucked more ...

Hi guys,Back with the next video, this time shifting the index finger. Still doing 7 notes per beat going up to the 12th fret.I have to say I'm a bit frustrated. Although I feel my technique improved a little bit (probably not even visible on the video, but I find it a little easier to keep the fingers in the right position), I could barely increase the speed. In fact, I think it's a huge problem for me. I find I tend to hit the ceiling somewhere and I'm stuck at a certain speed for ages. Dlrabe...

Nice one Scottulus! And you recorded it in a day! To think I take hours just to record my practice for feedback on the forum :) I guess I'm not counting the previous years of practice :)Btw, I can now confirm apart from doing the dishes it goes well with programming too...

Hi guys,Thanks for the feedback! dlraben, I'll follow your advice and will post another video soon. I will have to do the same with 5s and other less common timings. Scottulus, any ideas for a chromatic scale challenge? Because of work, I was away from the forum for a few weeks when you guys were doing the challenges, but I think they were a great idea ;)

Hi guys,Here is my attempt of the chromatic scale (shifting the pinky and moving up to the 12th fret). I noticed the shifts are a little jerky, especially on the low strings and up the neck, and I tense my hand as I get tired. I'm doing 7 notes per beat. Need to improve accuracy there too. Any feedback would be most appreciated.
