For some reason the bit that always stumps me on the main riff in Neon is the bit where he does the rake (he doesn't actually do it on this live acoustic recording but it's on the Continuum one). I...

One thing that annoyed me on the video was the way Pebber illustrated the way he thinks is "wrong", with very animated, over exaggerated movements. He seems to be the kind of person that actually...

I think if you feel like you never will be, then you never will be. So much about playing guitar is mental, and it's easy to hit mental blocks where you screw up purely because you don't think you...

Heh, 4nps is a total bitch but definitely worth some investment in. I'm not that good at it but I do occasionally dabble with it - it makes sense, it's 1 finger per note, but the gap between the...
