hi there guys!!!

i wanted to share with you all these moments of joy!!!

Ive been practicing a lot with all the stuff I find here, lessons, tabs, I started to use the metronome, Im also fighting to quit anchoring (its been 1 month since last time I rested my pinkie on the body)

My main concern has always been that I never know if I am doing progress or if I am wasting my time (ive read a lot about how to practice properly, how to optimize the time etc), but yesterday ... zomg yesterday I got a feeling I never felt before!

I started to practice one of the songs I enjoy playing "Pantera - The Great Southern Trendkill", and then came the solo, and in that solo there is a little part where you have to play:

e: 24-19-19-19-24-19-19-24------------------------24-19-19-19-24-19-19-24-----------------------
b: ------------------------19-19-24-19-19-24-19-19------------------------19-19-24-19-19-24-19-19


that part has always been too fast for me to play clean, but you know what, yesterday it was so easy for me to play clear at full speed ... I was like if my mind opened or something, it was like becoming intelligent, what the hell i felt like if I was possessed by Dimebag!!!

to all of you guys who are working on speed, I know you think that something fast for you today can never be played as accurately as something slow, and I thought so too, but I was so wrong!!!

Im so happy I found this site/community! ^^ thank you all for all the advices!

Good job man. That's great to hear.

Like I always say "JUST BELIEVE IN YOURSELF"
Congradulations on your improvements, I hope you continue in the same vain.

Good work!

Real quick though-

That section is actually played with natural harmonics at the 5th and 7th fret

Ladies and gentlemen -

Practice doesn't make perfect; perfect practice makes perfect.

Congrats.
