    I guess it makes my fingernails stronger because they are thicker with it on them, they don't break off or get hang nails as easy. Also with the finger nail polish they arent as flimsy, its like the difference between a light pick and a heavy.

    This is an important technique to practice; I have no clue how long it took me to be able to get down (I did when I was younger). When playing though I find that analyzing what your going to play and working out a picking pattern that is most ec...(more)

    ok don't tell anyone but I put a clear coat of finger nail paint on my middle, ring and pinky of my write hand... it makes them stronger. I use those fingers along with my pick for arps and chords.

    Tokty, You might have a different problem then, do you have a tremolo if not you can skip reading the rest of this message. On free floating tremolos sometimes the bridge springs vibrate causing a weird sound that I cannot describe. The way to...(more)

    Great Minds think alike. I've been doing that for a while... especially when I was at work. Another thing I do is create a picture in Adobe Photo shop, which takes more time but the results are a little bit more eye pleasing.

    Na I don't think your being dogmatic. I am all for it too, I just wanted to point out some of the difficulties with the idea.

    That's a good idea. The only problem I see with that is that it might turn into one of those 7 page long theory/technique discussions. Making it hard to get the good information out of it. Now you said and were cleaned out from time to time f...(more)

    I've never know a <b>good</b> lead player that couldn't play rhythm just as well. Also to add to what the find advise already given, knowing many chord voicings and being able to create your own is also a hallmark of a good rhythm player.
