If you are not familiar with this technique, watch this

Now, this sounds amazing to play as fast as Bill, but I am sure this is not what gave him such speed. What i am wondering, is that if it is really effective?

I have been doing this for a few days straight and think there might be an improvement, but I am not all that sure.


By the way, I did not waste my money on that rope that Bill wants you to spend money on, I just fold a bandanna over a few times

Victor Wooten used the same thing with a washcloth. Any thing that fits inbetween the string and fretboard will do.


Yes, that will help you get stronger/faster in your playing. its all a matter of how you practice in terms of if it cleans it up.
