He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice.

I remember you.


Well, do what I did, get an RG 1550/1570 and change the pickups... I don't get why people buy 2550's and the like... There is no improvement part from the pickups, and it costs way more... And you're going to replace the pickups anyway...

Does the 1570 really need a pick-up change?

Remeber... I'm not as serious, technical, or indeed knowlegeable as you lot, and therefore I'm expecting the stock pick-ups to do me fine...

Well, most of us won't be satisfied with ANY stock pickups (or non-dimarzio's )

But the stock pickups on the 1550/1570 are pretty good for stock pickups... So no, you don't really need to change them, its just advisable.

Lol, why should you be discouraged? Im far worse than you (probably) and yet im not discouraged by Resi - sure, hes a great shredder, not pro standard, but could well end up that way.

Im 16, been playing just over a year. Im not a shredder, but im good at what i do.
#146
Oh hush

Dread, I never get why certain people, like you, find someone's skill at an instrument discouraging!

When I hear someone better than me, that just drives me to practice harder, because I know that is the only way.

Why are you still reading, go practice and be inspired!

Its not about the skill, its about having fun

I dunno, I just get discouraged; it's just the way my mind interprets it.

Although I DO practice, and I DO try to develop. I'm just trying to get to a level where I won't feel inferior when listening to someone else's music.

But I don't know, practicing doesn't work for me... I stopped practicing sweeps for like a week or two and then I come back, and I can somehow play the sweeps from Speed Lives... wtf?

Anyways, yea, I just take it in stride. My mind is intrinsically pessimistic, some players encourage me, and some discourage me. I don't feel sorry for myself or anything though lol, it's just the way it is.

But when I come across a player that's been playing for 1.7 years it's like "... SHIT, why the fuck can't *I* see those results" lol.

Never helped me at all lol.

Although, it'd probably help, not necessarily in your technique, but in the way your brain remembers the fingerings and such.
My God, it's full of stars!
#153
it helps you develop the basic muscle for things, but not the co-ordination - example, i used to find picking witht he wrist really hard, i just didnt have the muscle, was my assumption, considering i use my arm, so i now sit and swivel my wrist through the air (dont do it with your hands in your pocket btw ) and i've seen great improvements in my wrist speed.

EDIT : Psssssssssst, dready, Resi has played piano for years - thus, his composition-ing, theory and finger strength had been developed for years. And he practices, i assume.

Sometimes I tap some fingerings to a table or something.
#158
lol, "I practice my fingerings on my girlfriend" would be hilarious!
If only i had no concern for my woman's honour!

Lol, which gives me this idea - you mad shredders, on your 8 hour practice routines, how do you find time for the fairer sex? Do you?
