You seem to be one of those people who think that a fast flurry of notes is just 'noise'. People like Vai and Malmsteen do have rhythm, they just use it in a way that fits their style and their...

Stuff like that all comes down to personal preference and context. Personally, I usually try to maintain one finger per fret until about the 17th fret, but it depends on what's played before and...

Don't quit playing just because you are having a bit of trouble. As Zaph said, 30 days is nothing. I've been playing for 15+ years and I'm still terrible.
