Cool.

Then, about two minutes later of just plowing, I can feel it coming. She's still moaning and rolling back, and then I pull out. I grab her by her hair, pull her head up, and yell out:
"BOOM, HEADSHOT!"

SS Fenders have decent cleans. The distortion is horrible, though.
The Laney Thread are big and clever. No exceptions.

agreed, i have one


and to the thread starter, if you pick hammer ons and pull offs, you're just doing regular picking (if you're pikcing both notes)

Someone offered me a cookie on this forum and when I called him up on it, he never delivered. Damnit, I had milk and everything.

you want a cookie dude. all you did was improve your pick hand technique. You're probrably moving your elbow now instead of your wrist, and you're noticing the speed improvement. your on your way man, dont celebrate yet though.

You're supposed to pick from your wrist, not your elbow. Picking from your elbow causes tension and I think gives you carpal tunnel or tendonitis or RSI.

You're suppose to use a hybrid of both, some wrist and some elbow movement.

thats what I was thinking


also TS judging by what you said you cant play scales fast, and can pick fast in general, thats very good, now we can go off to the land of the antelopes and dance and play random notes super fast, because we can shred lol

Yeah, but the elbow movement is for switching strings though, not for the actual picking.
