    Don't know the answer to your question though. Was not aware he was tuned to G. I do know that he used to at least tune down to D. Probably still does.

    I'm not sure the exact height of my string action but it's fairly high and I use light gauge strings with the high E a 10.

    I like the sound and feel of a guitar tuned down a half step but I still want to build my chops in regular tuning. It hasn't been too much of a problem. After a couple of days it heals itself and hopefully the skin will get stronger and less likely to recur. I know Hendrix and SRV tuned down a half step but I suspect it was more for the sound then a split-nail consideration. And I'm not ready for Krazy-Glue!

    Thanks for the feedback Farelli,

    I'm going to try bending down more when possible. Do you think that keeping your nails very short strengthens the skin underneath?

    Greetings everyone,
    I have some questions regarding “split nails”. For those that may not know this is when the skin splits from under the nail from bending strings.
    1-Short of not bending strings of course, how can they be avoided?
    2-Do lotions or creams help reduce incidence of?
    3-Do they happen more or less at different times of year(temperature related)?
    4-Does the skin under the nails in question ever toughen up permanently or is it destined to continue occurring?

    I would appreciate anybody’s input regarding their experiences with this situation.

    Thanks Pebber. And thanks a billion for the generous cornucopia of free information on technique!!. I have only started a few weeks ago with your material, mostly the chromatic scale exercises and have already noticed a tangible improvement in my playing. This is after only scratching the surface of what you have gifted the world guitar community with. And just so you know I'm not a mooch I have also recently ordered four of your DVDs on picking techniques. Thanks for the feedback!

    The power of concentration is a mighty thing for sure. I went through a splurge of figuring out note for note lots of solos but instead of completely mastering one at a time I would then lustfully move on to learning another and another( which in and of itself is a fun addiction/obsession). I had to put the breaks on and now must go back and really get them under my fingers. This I love as well but want to integrate this into a comprehensive format so I'm not lagging behind in any one area...

  • Thank you Delta that was exactly the video I needed.

  • or if you have the name or link of the Pebber video explaining these exercises. Thanks

  • Hello Everyone,

    Possibly a dumb/naive question but just to be clear, are these triad arpeggio sequences fingered as chords (triads) or are they arpeggiated individually in the sequences indicated?

    Important Scale Sequences .pdf:

    1.14: Triad Arpeggio Sequence No. 1
    Ascending: 1-3-5, 2-4-6, 3-5-7, 4-6-1, 5-7-2, 6-1-3, 7-2-4 Descending:4-2-7, 3-1-6, 2-7-5, 1-6-4, 7-5-3, 6-4-2, 5-3-1
    1.15: Triad Arpeggio Sequence No.2
    Ascending: 1-3-5, 6-4-2, 3-5-7, 1-6-4, 5-7-2, 3-1-6, 7-2-4 Descending:5-3-1, 4-2-7,3-1-6, 2-7-5, 4-6-1, 3-5-7, 2-4-6, 5-3-1
    1.16: Four note Arpeggio Sequence No.1
    Ascending: 1-3-5-7, 2-4-6-1, 3-5-7-2, 4-6-1-3, 5-7-2-4, 6-1-3-5, 7-2-4-6, 1-3-5-7
    Descending: 7-5-3-1, 6-4-2-7, 5-3-1-6, 4-2-7-5, 3-1-6-4, 2-7-5-3, 1-6-4-2, 7-5-3-1
    1.17: Four note Arpeggio Sequence No.2 (bebop pattern #1)
    Ascending: 1-3-5-7, 1-6-4-2, 3-5-7-2, 3-1-6-4, 5-7-2-4, 5-3-1-6, 7-2-4-6, 7-5-3-1
    Descending: 7-5-3-1, 7-2-4-6, 5-3-1-6, 5-7-2-4, 3-1-6-4, 3-5-7-2, 1-6-4-2, 1-3-5-7

    and does 1.17 only apply to bebop pattern # 1 ?

    Cool. Thanks guys. I'll look into all your suggestions.

    I was wondering because a number of the reviews on Amazon had mentioned the necessity of being able read music while reading this book. It sounded very interesting otherwise. I think I'll pick it up anyhow. Thx

    Thanks for the input guys. I do know theory for the most part and actually made up my own voicings for many chords years ago but not altered jazz chords. Not as much time anymore for that.

    Ursin- I do not read music but do know scales/chords and the theory and logic behind them. Do you think it still worth my while to purchase Mick Goodricks book "The Advancing Guitarist"? I noticed you recommended this book in some other thread.

    I was wondering if anyone has any tips on how to learn chord fingerings. For instance if I wanted to learn/practice various positions of C7b9. I vaguely remember stumbling upon a method utilizing the cycles of 4th & 5ths but don't recall how that flowed exactly. Does anyone have any helpful suggestions?

  • Solo Transcription Tips RequestDateTue Jun 03, 2014 6:05 am

    Ok thanks guys. I have been trying the 15 solos at a time approach and will try the one, maybe two at time route. They are stylistically similar solos but I think I will focus more on less material. What I try to shoot for is one day solo study, next day improvisation,alternating every other day (practice time varies but is usually about two hours weeknights and usually at least twice as long on the weekends). Lately I have been trying to incorporate more scale exercise practice because I've found that my right hand technique/dexterity is not what it once was and also rhythm practice which is a much neglected art. Thanks for the feedback.

    Also Pebber had mentioned in a posting somewhere that he learned an album by Johnny Winter, 3 Hendrix records, a couple of Jeff Beck, McLaughlin etc... Was wondering how he absorbed this body of material. What specifically he did to master these songs/solos. A breakdown of his methodology for attaining those goals...and for yours Uderoche with whatever stuff you learned note for note.
