Times have changed I guess. People just prefer youtube or whatever to the whole forum thing. Maybe the more specialist forums are doing better, I have no idea. :S

Didn't like it much till the keys kicked in, then enjoyed it a bit. Nothing wrong with it but nothing I found interesting either. YMMV!

Yeah, it's a shame because I think in some ways the forums were a better way to learn than youtube, which I think has replaced them as the repository of guitar info. It's much harder to find a proper...

Yes, but also your post didn't really contain anything for discussion - if you just want to share a scale diagram, lessons is the place for it. :)

There's nothing *wrong* with it, it's just off-topic and not particularly useful. Remember, the minor pentatonic is not a "guitar technique" - it's a scale. Also, the forums are generally for...

What *most* people do is hit the A with an upstroke and then a D with the downstroke.

I think Steve Vai occasionally does it the other way, I haven't heard of anyone else.

The hardest part of alternate picking is when you have to cross from one string to the next. This is usually the bottleneck.

Arpeggio picking is hard!

It's okay to have the hand on the guitar as long as you're not exerting pressure on it. In your case it's muting the lower strings so I'm afraid you'll just have to move...

It's reallllllllly hard, the reason being that the extensors (muscles that "open" the hand) are really weak compared to the tensors. If you're still "pressing" at all you'll be fighting against that,...

Almost anything can be refingered, if you're having trouble consider moving it. eg, from 10th fret low E to 5th fret A. :)
