I desperately need Skype lessons from someone who knows the mechanics, can look at what I am doing wrong and make suggestions with follow ups, etc. Is there anyone like this on this forum or can someone suggest anyone that does this? I asked Chris Brooks but he doesn’t teach anymore. He did give me some good pointers which was really nice of him.
I am trying to learn Yngwie and Eric Johnson licks, trying to modify my technique at the same time. Every time I feel like I progressed, the next day I realise I am using my old technique again.
I want to play clean but I have a hard time muting string noise - it seems like my wrist wants to flex, which moves my forearm backwards which moves my wrist behind the bridge, so I get string noise (it’s more like muted string noise from the string above the one I am playing). I cannot keep my palm or side of my hand on the strings, it wants to go in the air. I feel like I have to push my wrist on the strings to leave it there, but it doesn’t feel natural.
I think this the flaw in my technique but I do not know the way around it, and I want to make sure I don’t waste anymore time trying something that will not work out in the future. Basically I don’t want to experiment anymore, I wasted years and it’s not working. I was thinking the level would be for someone to point me in the right direction and follow up to make sure I am going on the right path.
