Oh no! I didn't mean it like that dude. Pebber covers nearly damn everything that can possibly be covered on video haha. I meant it in the sense that the topics Pebber talks about have to "become real" to you or "click". Things that can't be covered that come through experience from learning and playing songs 500 times. I'm very interested in what Pebber has to say about the whole left hand muting thing. edit: Post directed to diego

I'm learning this song where the left hand is really busy and the issue I'm running into is that the riff requires a lot of both left hand and right hand muting through a good amount of gain. I'm actually not certain if you ever touch on this topic now that I think of it...Here is the song I am talking about...

The previous Troy Stetina thread was a complete and total mess. Thank you for getting rid of it.P.S. I've been studying your material for the left hand for 4 years now. It doesn't cover everything, but it covers the most important things. It is pure gold. Thank you.

I'm going to film myself doing the Pebber Brown speed challenge. I'll make sure to buy an analog clock ;)

I'll be lurking this thread like a hawk. It's really inspiring to see you go through this tune, I'm certain the end product will be well worth it too. Hopefully we can meet each other in the end but I feel I don't have a firm grasp on simpler jazz standards yet. I am rooting for you dude!

Thanks for that last blurb Nick. I'm noticing from my jazz transcriptions that a perfect fifth is avoided like the plague for the most part. I personally think since there's less harmonic clutter the chords tend to "breath" more without it. Unless you're doing straight up rock or metal, I nix the perfect fifth often and only use it when it's called for.

Okay... I'm just going to put it out there now. I do not look for the same things at all as Nick when it comes to guitar playing.

I do not want to knock sarod at all guys, please don't take this the wrong way. From my understanding, the main proponent of speed in sarod comes from fore-arm rotation. Could it be that because the fore-arm is a bigger muscle it would take much longer to warm up?

Yeah my last post was mainly for people who feel they have to use tension or force to get a desired attack (a viewpoint I understand all too well because I was stuck in it), hence the focus of their technique practice may be something like: sound > relaxed technique. I've noticed the greatest improvement in my playing when the focus in my practice has been relaxed technique. After that is down then I start to experiment in what sounds and attacks I can get. However, I still personally struggle w...
