i say both. you always have the option to not use the pedal at all but it will still be there like that obsessed chick you took to homecoming and never called again, sitting there waiting for your call. so yea both

Shredding on an acoustic bass is always good to do.

H/o wait, honestly, I've been playing 9 months also... Barre chords were like a LONG time ago... Am I moving to fast? I know like 4 complete scales, understand chord construction, chord formulas, an ok amount of theory and composition. And like a bagillion chords, not all of them, but alot... Hammer Ons and pull offs next? I learned those before barre chords.

^Yeah, lots of people 'learn' them before barre chords.

I mean, hammer ons and pull offs are one of the hardest techniques to execute properly, and most peoples idea of them is using all the force you can to hammer on, and then pulling like a bungee chord is attached to your finger. Which is completely incorrect.

I'm not saying either of you have learnt it incorrectly, because I don't know - I said 'Learn how to hammer on and pull off correctly, would be a start.'... note the word correctly.

I mean.. legato is a pretty fundamental thing if you want to progress, and you won't progress if you're being held back by a lack luster legato technique, so what I said was a caution to make sure you're doing basic fundamental things correctly before moving onto bigger and better stuff, not a condescending 'Lol lurn hamer ons u n00b' type-a-thing, lol.

If you did understand chord construction and formulas, you would know all the chords.... You may be moving too fast if you aren't getting a proper grasp on any of these things. I'm not sure though, I'd have to hear you , and know some specifics.

Don't tell me what can be done, either.



I love you all no matter what.

Just learn some different fingering techniques, different picking techniques and patters, while trying your best to not anchor your pinky or something, or only use 2 fingers while fretting, that kind of stuff. Maybe learn some of your favourite songs, to get rythm down, and timing, all that jazz.
