Hey there everyone! I know I've posted a lot today. It's because literally today is nothing but music and it's exciting. I'm taking myself back to when I was a beginner with many different things. Like right now I'm practicing some parts of the etudes, and it reminds me of the days when strumming an Em chord was a nightmare for me. I'm a student. I'll never be a master. I learn something new everyday.

But I've heard and seen some students say that even the simple parts of the etudes are too challenging and discouraging for them. And I don't want anyone to feel like that. I'm working on some things for the school, but I was curious of any beginners would be interested in me adding "beginner etudes" to it? Things that are a little more broken down and simple. Would anyone be interested in that or find use of it? I want to see what students would say before I asked Syn.

Hell yeah beginner etudes would be cool! How about some that arent lead-guitar based, but rhythm guitar based? Like taking the lower octave of a scale and coming up with an etude for galloping, palm muting, straight up chugging, and legato in riffs? Ive seen people say lately that their rhythm speed/technique/feel/etc Needs work, so maybe that’d help some people? After all, shredding isnt all about lead playing, give some love to the rhythm side of shredding 😏 *cue holy wars by megadeth*
