I don't think you got the bible reference. But yeah, a lot of guitarists seem to have extremely large hands for playing.

I guess not... But then, it is nearly 2AM. And I'm also not too familiar with the Bible, despite occasionally getting the interest to read it just to see what the fuss is about (as a non-religious soul, myself). Maybe one day.

With that said, Holdsworth trounces any 'god' with a single reversed hammer-on.

Good! It's about time something decent displaced all the Buckethead, Porcupine Tree, Guthrie Govan and GN'R talk around here.

Remember to look out for Ruhkukah, Low Levels High Stakes, and the title track - they're mind-blowing shit.

^ The cool thing about those particular cuts is that they start off rather misleadingly, in that one might think "Where's the awesome?" at first. But then, once they get going...

Well, the story is that when Moses meets God on Mount Sinai, Moses is forced to take off his sandals just from hearing the voice of God.

I'm not religious either, I just find the sandals thing hilarious.

I CAN FINALLY DO THEM BACKWARDS HAMMERS!!

...except I cannot do them in the awesome pants-****ting holdsworth ultra way that he does it, I.E. playing saxophone/bebop licks with them

oh, and DaFjory, I read someone on the shawn lane forum that went out backstage with holdsworth and got a ton of home-made beer shown off to him.

I think that guy wins.

edit:
btw, does anyone have the "live at yoshi's" DVD?
I have it and I would definitely reccomend it, as it's ****ing awesome.

Since I dare not venture into the Pit, how can I get rid of the chat thingy that keeps popping up on the bottom of my window upon visiting UG? I don't like it, and will never have any use for it. Be gone!

I think I got the hang of the reverse hammer on, I use an up stroke then do the hammer on the next sting like lane does, it sounds better that way.

i've been fooling around with reverse hammers since i read about them in this thread a few days ago. at this point i find pull-offs to be more efficient/easier

It sets a good basework, but not much more. Harrison is cool, but a ****e teacher.


I don't know about that. Except when he starts jumping to the speed of light, it's not too hard to figure out most of his examples by ear. He also fits a TON of stuff into ten minute lessons.

^ From what I could stand to watch of that video, he's a shit teacher. Even Holdsworth himself taught better on his instructional.

When it applies to Lane, it's a "hammer from nowhere" (especially if you're picking a prior note on a different string). But yeah, that's pretty much it. Actually, the more I think about it, I'm not so bothered about the tonal difference of reversed hammers to normal pulls, as I am about the feel of the technique - it just seems like the right thing to do.

Why the need to barre/pre-load notes along the neck and twang the string sideways, when one can simply drop their fingers down individually per fret using slightly more force? Besides, I've found that it works wonders for strength building. Over time, my fingers have become much more strong and agile for it.

The only thing that makes it challenging, as I've pointed out before, is the inevitable string noise... But I guess the right hand takes care of that.

I find that I get better sound from the calloused part of my finger and that you can find a guide on his tone on the petrucci forum which really helps.

You got to admit that he comes up with some great exercises to practice though. My hybrid picking has gone through the roof thanks to his videos. Not to mention it's worth watching his videos just to pick up on the subtleties of his perfect technique.

^I really want to get down that type of hybrid picking.

I don't if I'm doing it wrong or something, but I don't notice any difference in sound betw. pull-offs and backwards hammers.

Well, I'm still working on the legato technique.

I need help on improving the volume and clarity of the notes I'm playing.

Does anyone else find it awkward to play 12h13h14h15h14h13h12 but easy to play 15h14h13h12h13h14h15?
