Ok im having trouble jumping strings on the song Room 409. I'm either missing the string, or hitting the 5th an 4 th string together maybe i could just mute the 5th string an still hit the 4th string idk.

Definitely learn to jump strings. I just muted in a similar situation and now my picking technique suffers and i'm effectively wasting time learning to pick properly when i could have just done it right at first.

Definitely. I was playing songs wrong and it was bad for my technique. It's better to play something properly but slowly that blitz through it with mistakes.

alright so just learn it slow till i build up speed thanx man


No problem. Oh, by the way if you don't own a metronome you should buy one. They keep you in time and it helps a lot when you come to play in a band situation.

Well whether you learn to use it or buy a purposebuilt one, i'd reccomend getting one.

there's a part in this one song called "antithesis" by origin that is awesome for string skippage, just take it nice and slow and use a metronome. trem picked 16th notes at 250bpm, start off slow like i said.

Enslave your Children, Behead the weak,
Kill every last Man, Woman and Machine
The cleansing has begun.
Your meek defense is foolish,
we come from the stars a trillion strong."
