    Awesome video Nick! Tasty licks! And great idea you mentioned about thinking before you play. I tend to do it, but only for short periods, then ill just randomly go somewhere else....need to concentrate more!

    And Mr. Gurgle, sorry I didn't reply earlier. I'm pretty much an amateur when it comes to gear, but I just really like the feel of the SG. The neck is really fast, plus the fret size is just right. I have a really nice ibanez RG prestige as well, but I always find that I come back to the SG
    .....now all i need is a decent amp haha.

    Hey guys. I probabaly should be posting practice videos, but since I've been pretty busy writing a thesis I just did some quick improv videos for critique. My technique gets sloppy at times, I always lose concentration when I solo.

    Yeah, don't answer that question. Ursin I read your thread on 'Practice Time Balance/Focus' and I get the picture.

    Thanks a lot for the advice guys. I hear you, SLOW is the key.

    Up until now, what I’ve been doing for something like the A pent. exercise, is alternate, scalpel and sarod with single notes, then doubling up on each note, etc, at whatever speed I got to the day before....So should I scrap that and just focus on one, like doubling up for example, real slow, then gradually going up like you said every day until I have it down, or should I just keep doing them all but always starting slow and then speeding up gradually every time? Time’s my issue. Since I only have a limited amount of time (about 3 hours per day), I'm guessing I should just choose a few exercises to work on from module and 1 & 2 until I get them down, as opposed to doing a lot for a shorter amount of time?...yeah, no shit.

    So here's me working on some scalpel, sarod, chromatic and wholetone exercises. Its funny how shitty your technique looks once you record yourself.



    There's a lot of movement when I do an A pent. pattern with scalpel picking. Is that ok? I can definitely feel my thumb joint moving but it just looks wrong when I watch it.

    Also, I find that when I'm on strings 5 and 6, doing a chromatic scale for example, my thumb moves up. Is that fine, or should I be trying to keep it down all the time?

    Thanks a lot for the help and advice, I'll get working on those left handed exercises.

    I see what you mean about the thumb, I'll try and bring it back a little and see how it goes.

    Hi guys, I'm new to the forum, just subscribed to lessons last week. I was wondering if any of you could check my scalpel and sarod technique?

    Here's my scalpel picking:



    I find that with my scalpel, I have to get a little more horizontal with the pick to get a clearer sound...is that ok?

    And my sarod:



    With my sarod, I find that I can do it really fast like at the end of the video but I quickly burnout at that speed, so I've just started slow and building up.

    Thanks!
