I've been practicing a lot on just
Songs lately and realize that I am not
Ready. Time to go back and drill. I need to get faster and lay down my chords faster.

Also to pick or not to pick that is the question. I see a lot of players not using picks. So what is the idea behind not using a pick. I think it would help me out a lot finding the strings without looking.

What are your thoughts fellas? Phone Post

I play with a pick, both guitar and bass, and I can emulate most sounds, for example fingerpicking on guitar or slap and pop on bass. Even the great Chris Squire from Yes plays bass with a pick, so anything is possible.

But any way you go, the more hours you spend playing, your muscle memory will keep improving at knowing where you are on the guitar, with both hands. So it will all work out with time.

And just choose for yourself which techniques are most interesting to work on at any given time. Change things up when it gets stale. Standard stuff.

I had an off day today practicing. But tomorrows another day. I'm going to break out my les Paul tomorrow I can play that one much better. But I rarely use it cause I don't want to fuck it up Phone Post

Why don't you also start learning some tunes you like on GT pro, just slow that way down to start? You can learn your technique as you learn to play stuff you like.

Have you learned to play a blues shuffle? It's pretty simple to play and you can easily make up nonsensical lyrics to sing over top of it.

DiazsBongWater -  After looking everywhere for an alvarez acoustic (rare as fuck in England it seems) a guy my bro knows sold me his AD-60 last week. He knew nothing about guitars and I have no clue how he came to own it but I give him £60 for it!! It's immaculate and cost about £500 new!
It has the nicest tone of any acoustic I've ever played! Phone Post
