Prove that you have the mental capacity to formulate a sentence in English and you might be able to understand the importance of upstrokes.
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.

That's not why everyone's making fun of him. It's because he's retarded and can't put together a sentence like a normal human being, it's got nothing to do with the fact that he's new to guitar. There's plenty of Feb 07's who are new, but can put together coherent sentences.

Threadstarter: If I get what you're asking, then yes learning how to alternate pick - using downstrokes and upstrokes - makes it easier to play.

yeah another jewle i know what horrible grammer mr. oh wait this isnt school so i dont care and fug proper punctuations too!@#%$$%^&<<<>>:"+_
#30
Guess what, kid? You learn grammar in school so you can *GASP!* use it OUTSIDE of school!

What a concept!

Listen. We're not asking you for perfect grammar. All we want is for you to type in such a way so that we can understand what you're saying. What's the point of trying to cut down on grammar when you end up having to A) repeat yourself multiple times and B) deal with everybody (myself included) bitching at you.

That actually hurt my eyes to read. You probably have a problem typing no doubt. Work on your English.

My private lesson teacher told me that it gives it more of an "Emphasis" or more of an "Umph' feeling to it. i found this to be tore with me
#39
Isn't it more time consuming to capitalize the first letter of every word instead of typing it normally? Work on your typing before working on your upstrokes.
