El_Varaco -

stretch before you play to avoid cramping, john petrucci shows you how.

 

really helps especially when  you know you're gonna play for more than 30 mins. also helps stretch out your fingers.

 

sometimes the practice routine is exactly like traneing UFC, stretch, warm up, drills to improve skills (scales, licks, etc.) new techniques, new songs, jam.

 

 

Would vote up if I could, that dvd was my bible, jp is the man! Phone Post

viorage - Very good information ill definately check out Justin. I'm realizing everything seems so fast but it will all slow down when you get the hang of it Phone Post
Everything is fast!

That is where muscle memory comes in. Once you "drill" something several times you don't need to think about all the tiny movements your hand has to make. It happens subconsciously. I can play very technical pieces of music whilst casually chatting away because I'm not using the part of my brain I must think with.... I COULDN'T use the part of my brain I think with at those speeds.... Even the speed of changing a chord at the end of a bar of music.


Also, you may or may not be the sort of guy to adhere to "structured" practice. Some people thrive on sitting down for an hour of scripted routine (10 minutes warm up, 15 minutes scales etc.) but other people find this hard. If you find yourself labouring get what's in front of you ask yourself honestly is there something else youd rather be practising? Maybe you really want to learn Smoke On The Water at that particular instance lol. Don't worry, go do it, you will benefit from actually enjoying what you are doing rather than half arsed trying to push through something you are not enjoying.

The flipside is that at some point you will actually WANT to come back and do the things you were finding laborious. The mind is strange Phone Post

Guitar pro is a great tablature program that I use. All the tabs u could want are at ultimate-guitar.com

I just started playing recently and have been steadily improving over the past few months. I love playing guitar, finally found an instrument I'm passionate about after dabbling in a multitude of others lol Phone Post

@viorage - my favorite Fender is MIM. Some guys get all status driven and look down on MIM since the American built models are suppose to be higher quality. I couldn't tell the difference and 99% of the people who pick up my guitar can't tell the difference. Phone Post

Getting into guitar was probably the best thing I ever did for my mental health. All stresses of life are completely gone when I am playing.

It's been a long journey and the plateaus can be incredibly frustrating, but well worth the time and effort.

Also, nice looking guitbox! Phone Post

I'm going to sound like a retard but I believe the neck is after market? It's a fender also he said the knobs up top are different also those metal strips up the neck are different. That's all I can think of, that he told me about. Phone Post

Don't worry, tabs will take about 3 minutes to learn. But once your guitar starts making noises that don't hurt your earballs none of this will feel like a chore

That's cool, MIM is good too. Good deal on the set up, it would have been a SMOKING deal if it was MIA, that's all I was trying to get at. I own both MIM and MIA and love them both. Phone Post
