So ive been thinking lately.. and i was trying to decide which hand i would choose to become awesome if i could choose one. I mean in terms of playing guitar with!

Would you rather be able to have an amazing left/fretting hand which could play whatever you want at whatever speed you want etc, or would you have a crazy picking hand which can pick as fast as you want and skip strings without even thinking. Assume that the hand you don't pick stays at your current level of playing.

What would YOU choose??



I think i'd go for my picking hand because my picking isn't too good atm and i could also gain the unintended benefit of a stronger fapping hand.

I can play left and right equally.
I don't think there's much further I can go with speed or fretting.
I never miss a note.

Fretting hand.

It's a very hard question though. But I think being able to play pretty much anything with my fretting would get my picking hand up to speed pretty fast.

Fretting hand.
My picking is great, I need to do a lot on my fretting.
#13
That's tough. I think i would go with an awesome fretting hand.


Bedit: Actually, I change my mind. I would want mastery in my picking hand.

Picking Hand, fo sho. My legato (not to toot my own horn, so to speak) is beastly, but I'd like to play gallops at 200bpm.

Fretting hand for sure...
And i like to have a better brain..

My hamster used to bite me when I picked it up, then it got too old and fat to bite and died in a pool of it's own vomit.

Picking hand. I can only tap to play fast and my fretting hand is pretty good.

Good question. I think it'd be a lot easier and funner to practice picking when you already had godly fretting.

But ideally I'd split it 50/50.
#21
I'd prefer a good balance of both.

As my left hand is amazing, and my right is horrid, I'd choose the right. I'd be able to sweep, I'd be able to do good tapping, and I'd actually be able to play consistent triplets.

Picking hand. My fretting hand is pretty agile from playing keyboard for 8 years, but I have real trouble with the timing on alternate picking, plus I can't do P.Hs.
🙈 🙉 🙊

Ive changed my mind to fretting now due to recently becoming an awesome picker.

fretting. im trying to learn scarified on bass, i can hit all the strings, juts cant get the frets right..
DONT RISK IT, BUY A BASS AMP
#31
Just based off how I play now, my picking hand. I don't have a lot of problems with speed on my left hand, i have more a problem with accurate picking on quicker songs (read: voodoo child )

Fapping hand.

Well.. I'm a lefty, but I play right-handed guitars, so.. I'd pick left hand, that's the superior one.

My picking needs work. My fretting is good enough.

I'd go with fretting, my right hand is fine right now, just a few mistakes with string skipping.
