    Might be worth still playing. Working out what you can play without it. If you was playing live and your E string broke you’d need to style it out like nothing happened.

    I changed the way I hold my pick once I joined this school. I used to hold it with my index and thumb fingers, pinching it almost. This has definitely been a double edged sword for me. Immediately I found my sweeping and economy picking improve. But I found that my alternate picking and rhythm suffered beyond belief. So now I have to change the way I hold my pick depending on what I’m doing. If you really want to hold the pick the way syn does then don’t expect it to come over night. It’s something that’s going to take a lot of time to get used to. Slowing things right down to basics. My rhythm hand is awful holding it the correct way. I feel like I’ve gone right back to the begging, but I No it will improve over time. I’d just sit with a metronome and start slow. Annoying I know but it will work.

    Awesome job dude i really struggle to make instrumentals. you did a good job here, you seem to have payed close attention to melody here, utilising that motif at the start and end. Not just a mindless shred either so well done!
