pull-offs

Funny you mention the picking, strummin. I've always had suspicions about my picking techniques, mainly concerning how I am actually holding the pick. Whereabouts did you happen to find out this info on the "correct" way to pick?

Steve, I've hit a learning stump so I'm taking lessons.

This guy who I'm taking lessons from is in a blues/soul/R&B sorta band and jams in a way I've not heard before. Very similar to jambands but unique.

Sounds like an interesting style for sure. The thought of lessons has definitely been crossing my mind recently. I always seem to come to a dead-end in my learning but somehow, after a long time and much frustration, I seem to come out of it. Who knows, maybe when the summer ends and I have more time, lessons will be a more realistic option.

I'm sure picking techniques can be easily conjured up with a few strokes of the keyboard and the click of the mouse, i'll give that a try

i have been in a rut myself, physically. i am getting the theory, however applying it is taking a little more time.

i recently thought about lessons, but stumbled upon youtube.com. hopefully more people will contribute(?tigerstrat, strumminsix?) more jerry style or bobby playing technique's.

these are some of the searches or lessons i liked.

That is exactly my problem, Waldo. He's taking me back to basics learning all my scales by name working the circle of fifths. So far we've done CG, DA, EB and we're taking a break to apply it.

As application, we are taking it back to blues. We are gonna start off with some Bluesbreakers with Clapton and working on "all your love" and "hideaway" but not so much how to play but work on what we are playing and why we are playing it.

It's very different approach looking at it like that.

Hey all, great post there with the You Tube stuff. We should start sharing our own tricks of the trade on there. Obviously, we all love the guitar and guitar players who do more than just play notes. I have studied guitar for about 12 years now and have pretty much seen every instructional book or DVD out there. I will mention two that stick out in my mind as really essential in helping me see things the way I feel guitar players should.

Fretboard Logic: great book, they have a DVD as well and you can actually buy volumes I and II together with the DVD.

Chord Chemistry: by Ted Greene, who looks a little like a 1973 Jerry in his photo. A little tougher to digest than Fretboard Logic, but it will open up chords in an amazing way.

YES! :cool: :cool: :cool:

exactly what i was hoping for! some of the guy's on this forum are talented musicians and i sure would like to take some lesson's from all of them. i would also hope to see how one actually achieves certain jerry or bobby tones with there setup. what a great tool if used properly.

peace,
waldo

Flattered to be mentioned as some kind of "expert"... I'm afraid I don't even know what I'm doing half the time. I could see posting some vid clips... I'm just really lazy when it comes to tabbing or discussing the minutiae of finger movements... and even lazier about reading about it!!

re: hammer-ons, they only seem to appear very sparingly in soft, legato passages... but pull-offs of every description (yes, tons of triplets!) are everywhere.

I must open a YouTube acct... I haven't even poked around in there much since the first huge batch of GD videos appeared.
