Yep. I’ve said something like this before.
Playing fast for the sake of playing fast is silly.
You might not expect a lesson focused on speed building from a laid back finger picker like me. And while I stand by my comment about playing fast, the truth is you do need to work on your ability to play fast. For two reasons:
1. Having the physical ability to play fast makes the slower stuff a breeze.
2. The speed is there when you need it.
The key is, play fast when it counts. You don’t have to play fast all the time, but having the ability to break out a fast run when you need it comes in handy.
If you want to build speed, start slow. But be consistent.

Guitar players love playing in box patterns, shapes and so forth. That way of thinking has its application, but if you really want to learn a scale – I mean get down to the heart of the matter – I strongly encourage you to learn the scale on one single string. I tend to break […]

This lesson calls out the difficulties of playing good, clean sounding barre chords. This may in fact be a basic requirement for good guitar playing, but many of us cheat and don’t fully get each note sounding clearly. I used to be in that crowd so, I get to say that 🙂
But, here’s a couple of tips to help you identify your weak spots and work around them.

Finger picking is simple. It, however, is not easy. It’s really tough to get your thumb pumping out a good solid bass line while pushing through the chords. Oh yeah, on top of that, you have to pluck out the melody. This certainly seems complicated and for good reason. There’s quite a lot going on just to […]
