    Keep Plodding along, as long as you can see progress hey!.
    Maybe give the left hand a workout too, split your time between left and right .

    But always play some songs you like everyday also. Even if its only a few chords.
    After all that is why we all started for the love of music.

    I am a victim of this myself i can work on exercises for hours, and then have no time for actual music.

    So now i always try to learn a new lick or song or summit. Maybe just throw on a backing track even and jam out .

    Keep up the good work anyways mate.
    some are working together on here doing the picking exercises you could always throw a video up and get some critique.

    Great videos, spot on, have you made your way through Module two, as you said you been working at it for two years.

    Have you also been working scales etc.??

    Forum post by deltadiscos. Topic: New guy here!

    We used to have a very active forum here a while back, we would have comps and group learning going on. But people move on and have their own paths.
    You wont go far wrong with your technique and musicianship if you stick with Pebber though.

    And as for what to practice in 3 hours, Module one and two would be a good place to start.
    Follow the daily practice schedule take a couple exercisers from spiders,trills, in Module 2 and drill them.

    If you want to split the 3 hours you could work your way through the 5 position scale system too.

    There was a thread on here somewhere on how to add youtube videos.

    the main thing is keep practising.

  • Scalpel picking thoughts.DateWed Jul 25, 2018 10:24 am

    Yes i find that with scalpel, pulling the thumb and finger in naturally turned the wrist, which becomes sarod picking.

    My only problem has always been trailing finger hitting unwanted strings, i need to pull those fingers in tighter, or adjust the pick position.

    Never thought about pick slanting until i watched troy grady on youtube, but found that i clearly have a tendency toward downward slanting, which makes upward picking difficult.

    But at the end of the day you can pick anyway you want, if you put some serious hours into it you will get good. Some guitarist have horrible looking picking action (methany, moore,michael angelo batio) But they can shred with the best.

  • Sarod picking while keeping strings from ringingDateFri Mar 30, 2018 12:05 am

    Pebber has a video on Sarod muting technique. The muting comes more from the base of the palm, will see if i can find it

    But i would of thought for this arpeggio shape you would want to use Economy/sweep picking style, not saying it cant be alternate picked also.
    A lot of muting will come from the the left index finger.
    A quick video is the best way to get feedback.

    Yea i missed that, but yes you dont want to be sliding up the strings (they sound pretty new ) but lifting when moving to new position.
    There is always gonna be a bit of string noise, but we want to try and eliminate all we can for a smooth transition.

    There are a lot of songs where they purposely leave string noise in. So sometimes it works.

    couple left hand videos from Pebber .

    Nice work on the chromatic there including those spirals, Kudos for keeping the speed down that's the way to go,

    Picking looks ok to me good thumb movement, good angle for scapel. Left hand looks good fingers curled in, thumb placement good, every thing looks nice and relaxed. so you are on the right track.

    So You get these down then realise Pebber has wrote down all those permutations.. hmmm oh well back to the woodshed, couple years work just there lol.

    Welcome to the forum

    Forum post by deltadiscos. Topic: First video post.

    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 .

  • Question About On-Line LessonsDateMon Jul 31, 2017 5:26 pm

    You will need to print out what you need for that lesson, Pebber will let you know what you need to print for the lesson.
    or you can always just view the pdf online if you dont have a printer.

    Forum post by deltadiscos. Topic: 5 and 6 notes at 50 bpm

    Just had another listen and indeed the tens are ok, maybe a couple of slips but overall good stuff.
    maybe because of the angle its not so clear
    keep up the good work though mate

    Forum post by deltadiscos. Topic: 5 and 6 notes at 50 bpm

    Timing seemed ok up to nines i would slow that metronome down a little for the tens,

    And also it may be just me, but the angle of your pick looks really wrong, looks very vertical which gives a terrible tone.
    for scalpel picking you want to be around 45 degree from horizontal with the strings.

    But then i've seen a lot of different angles for picking but thats just the way Pebber teaches.

    N7fv. you need to keep the speed to where you are comfortable.
    Its all about training your fingers and brain to do the right things slowly over and over and over (boring huh) only pushing the speed every now and again. if your getting things wrong you always want to slow down as you will be training your fingers to get it wrong.

    Farelli was it those spiders that did your hand in, you can still get some right hand practice in buddy

  • About a practice routineDateThu Jul 27, 2017 10:34 am

    If you really want to just get your technique up to speed, i would just stick with module one and two. maybe a little scale practice too. And of course always leave a little time for song practice too.

    you may not be seeing a lot of progress as you are spreading yourself to thin. To be fair ten minutes on each exercise a day aint gonna get you to guthrie's level.

    If you have 1 hour 30 minutes, try 30 mins on right hand, 30 mins left 15 mins on scales 15 mins song practice
    you need to stick to one thing for a long while to get really good at it.

    But you have found the right place here to sort your technique out

  • Too Far Gone To Re-Learn Picking?DateMon Jul 10, 2017 4:57 am

    Never to late to learn a new technique. its gonna feel strange for a while, and that's where most people quit.
    stick at it for a while (couple months at least) see if its for you.

    Remember Pebber tried the ten/twelve position major scale system for ten years before deciding he needed to change it.
