    Lol I was thinking about your status update last night. I dropped a pick and my floor ate it... but while looking for it I found my piss yellow Ultex pick! Now, any tips for finding a brown pick on hardwood floor/carpet?

    I was just thinking yesterday that I should get that hat I wanted before. Then the site went under construction. now I see there’s a pretty cool mask on the store, literally right after my hospital had issued a new policy that we have to mask up walking INTO the building and we can use cloth...

    How much A7X do you listen to?!

    I still listen to Nightmare a lot, have since it came out 10 yrs ago. It’s kind of a bittersweet thing for me being a drummer who’s a really big fan of Portnoy. Dual purpose as I just got double kicks and am practising on the songs on Nightmare. I also have been listening to the Stage in its...

    CAGED System – The C Shape – Lesson 24

    I’m a beginner, like Dominik mentioned I don’t think the intention of the lesson is for you to be able to play the improv like that at full speed. But to slowly get familiar with the rest of the fretboard, how the chords are all linked together etc... Of course you always have the option to down...

    Introduction to Crossover Picking – Lesson 38

    I'm not fully understanding your reply, which makes me wonder if maybe I didn't explain what I was trying to convey very clearly haha. So I just made a quick video to show what I was trying to say. Apologies for the atrocious clicking, I use my phone to keep time and didn't think it'd be so...

    Introduction to Crossover Picking – Lesson 38

    This question really could have applied this to any previous lesson, especially the pentatonic scales, but this stuck out the most on these exercise: Say for example the sequence on the 4th string "4 - 5 - 7", is there a difference to individually fingering each fret, as opposed to just using...

    Starting from scratch

    Been practising lesson 33 (and revisiting all of those sets of lessons) but thought I'd come back and revisit lesson 29 with a little more pinky strength and slightly faster :D

    CAGED System – The D Shape – Lesson 28

    Hey guys. Pretend you’re a beginner going through these lessons...😅 For now is it acceptable to just understand the theory of it? Instead of being able to just improv something or playing these scales by heart/changing positions on a whim? I think I’m understanding what these lessons have to...

    Starting from scratch

    Omg yes. The one really good thing about taking these videos is that I realize half of my fingers are dead weight 😂 I will definitely do that! Thanks!

    Starting from scratch

    I've been hesitant to post anything cause I felt so outclassed lol but this is a beginners thread so HERE I GO!!! This one I am just playing the D and C pentatonic scales (as per Lesson 29) with the backing track on 60%, while forcing myself to alternate pick. The first 4 bars are a bit...

    Beginners: Are you struggling with chord changes? This can help!

    I'm using that exercise to practice my G chord specifically. I can play it but I'm having a really hard time changing into it (in a clean way)!!! thanks! Thanks @Ed Seith for the video and advice! I have noticed that's a thing I could do to maximize efficiency, but for some reason, my fingers...
