technique

  1. All Other Guitars (including Prestige)
    I was just wondering, from a technique standpoint, once you get used to playing 7 string does it feel weird to go back to 6 string and vice versa, or is it just like you can switch modes almost as if playing two different instruments?

    In this video, you're going to learn how to get down and dirty with that thumb of yours! I've been getting requests to do a video lesson on the Tosin Abasi/Javier Reyes/Animals as Leaders-style guitar slapping/thumping thing for a long time now. There are a lot of misconceptions about this...

    Hey everyone! I did a video about my biggest guitar technique problem, which is string crossing when alternate picking. I am not allowed to post links here, but if you search Youtube for "Question on alternate picking: string crossing", you should find a video by Dairwolf where I explain the...

    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...

    Hey there! I´d like to know whether anyone knows fast bass players that only use two fingers for plucking the strings. I have a really hard time getting used to playing with a plektrum so I consider switching to electric bass mainly (I already played the bass for a couple of years but not...

    Hey guys, for a while I've been using this technique and honing it on both 6. And 7 strings, and I was wondering if anyone knows of any cool exercises or songs that involve this technique

    can any of you experienced guitarists help me out on sweep picking? like the pick angle , where to put my hand so I could dampen the string while sweep picking etc... I just can't get a good sweeping sound when I "sweep" lol :?

    Along the lines of "Glasgow Kiss" by Pterucci, "I'm Alright" by Neil Zaza, something that has lots of pretty arpegios along and across the entire fretboard :)

    Hey guy I recently started to learn classical guitar techniques and it has realy helped my playing and mostly the control of my left hand work. So I was wondering if any of you ever tried or still do classical stuff and did it help your playing?

    I want to know how people think while they're improvising. You see, cause I've read like tons of stuff on how to improvise but I just don't like the way most people think about it. They say that you're suppose to picture every scale in every key all over the neck at once and for me that just...

    i dont dislike low action but i play much better with high action. for some odd reason even though i can alternate pick really fast and acurate i need. high action because i fret way to fast a low action. i dont feal the strings. so i dont play with enough fidelity and even end up fretting 5...

    Okay, well, maybe not changed my life, but are helping out my playing. I'm offering guitar lessons to raise money for charity; I'm going out to Tanzania in the summer to help build a dining at a local primary school in Lerang'wa (which my school is affiliated with) and need to raise two and a...
