the thumb is the anchor of your whole hand and if you dont use it properly to shift your hand then it becomes harder. if you dont beleive me trying playing without your thump on the neck and see how far you go before realizing this is true.

You seem to be talking about the kind of string skipping that Paul Gilbert is known for and thus concentrating on the stretch aspect with the fretting hand.

This thread is not about that.

If you go back and actually read what's going on maybe you'd know that.

Why are you posting things like that and talking about stretching the fretting hand and thumb position exactly then?

because your BRAIN is processing BOTH hands. one will confuse the other. Technically speaking the fretting hand is alot more the power house becasue it moves all over.
if your fretting hand is not up to speed properly then your brain is forced to think about it then you make little mistakes. i am a firm beleiver of fretting hand dominance for problems related to this i have done it for ever 15 years.

You know what's really helpful?

Explaining things like this to begin with rather than simply talking about something that seems to be entirely unrelated.

What is also really helpful is putting all your replies in one post. Everything's a lot easier that way.

Can if you want, I don't care; you haven't been around long enough to be remarkable enough to shit on.

here's a riff that falls under the category of riffs that the stated question was asking about:

-----9----9----9---
---------------------
--0----0----0------

so i don't think your advice was really spot-on either.

-0------0------0---------
is easy for you than

-----------------------
-------------------------
-------3-----3-----3----
----5-----5------5-------
-5------4------5 -------

while your willingness to help is appreciated, i'm just saying that this thread has nothing to do with fretting hand stretches and thumb placement. and i wasn't asking a question...

of course it does. you just cant make the connection because maybe you dont notice it when playing. that happens with people who know how to play well. for beginners who cant grasp it its because the hands are not syncing , they make mistakes and lose timing. this is a perfect example of the problems i had starting out. and i know how too fix them. fretting hand will either go faster or slower than picking hand. so and exercise with more strings helps you fine tune that amazing thing of a hand us humans have. Thumbs seperate us from all the animals in the world and thats why you need them to play guitar and licks like that always remember its NEVER one hand working at a time you need to pay attention to both. You can say this is bad advice . i know what i am talking about and ii hope you all try this.
