Someone's always getting snarky with someone around here. It's some strange ever pervasive attitude that UG has never quite gotten rid of... much like the elitist attitude of some "lead" guitarists....

Oh sure, but then again everything "just takes practice" at the end of the day. I'm sure I could nail it eventually. I just need to figure out a way of learning this stuff that actually works for me.

Thanks for the video links! I'll be sure to watch and digest them when I've got the bandwidth for it lol

Also I totally agree on the theory side of things. That's something I'm always working on.

Good stuff, nightsycthe!

Just had a thought: I get the feeling from listening to this stuff that there's an awful lot of fretting hand work that I'm missing when "holding down" chords.
