Thinking about sharing my approach to fast playing

Hello everyone,

It seems like two decades after the dawn of shred, people are still obsessed with playing fast. I don't care much about speed, but I can play relatively fast, nevertheless. I was wondering if some of you would be interested in a tutorial or something similar where I would share techniques to become a faster player?

^That's great, because playing fast is overrated. Anyhow, here's the video I was talking about:

Re: Thinking about sharing my approach to fast playing

Great idea--I like your approach.
It just needs to be fine tuned. I like that you explain the techniques but you need to focus on more playing and break it down.
Old farts like Ryc and I love this stuff, and the younger guts will benefit, too.
If you have videos that are longer than 5 min--break them up with different camera angles, close ups, scene transitions, etc ir the viewers will get bored.
Also--monetize your videos!
You have a great plan and I predict a ton of views--why not get paid for each click?

Keep going--I like it.

Re: Thinking about sharing my approach to fast playing

Hey Alaska, thank you very much for your positive feedback. I was baffled at the final length of the vid (it was actually longer, but I edited some things out), so I should've made three videos instead where I would have offered a more in-depth explanation of my thoughts and observations.

That idea with the camera angles is something I seem to forget all the time. I can totally see how it would keep people interested.

I guess I will add a timeline to the video's description so that people can watch the section they are interested in.

No--you want viewers to watch the whole thing.
Just edit with some transitions, wipes, fades and some on-screen text and camera angles.
Polish this up, and you'll get people subscribing to your channel.

I will implement your suggestions for future videos. I can't really be bothered to upload the video again (the upload times justify my decision!).
