I’m jazzed to see the new Test Drive videos, but that’s gonna have to wait until next week (when my kids are home on a midwinter break and we’ll all be screen zombies together;). Meanwhile, I’m getting down to some serious work on what I now know is my preference for forearm/USX.
[Thought about posting this in my recent metronome thread, but I think the following warrants a new one…]
I have two concerns:
If I don’t factor in string muting, I may learn a motion that has to be altered and relearned to account for it later on. Seems you basically get away without muting when doing tremolo on one string, but I’m also working a Sixes exercise that could end up fast but not clean.
Staying on one string (or even, say, two w/the Sixes thing - since as Tommo pointed out, a rookie should start doing Sixes with a short, 3-6 note lick), tracking is a non-issue. But again, I could end up learning an effective, fast motion only to have to tear it down and rebuild it when the exercises get longer and tracking does become an issue.
(btw I’m playing a Strat style guitar, 3 single coils, with a decked bridge, if that impacts the questions somehow.)
Factor this stuff in now? How? Or just floor it and see what happens?
