I have a question to the CtC team as well as to the teachers in this forum. Before going further, I would like to point out that I am not a guitar teacher. I have made a lot of improvements thanks to CtC but I still have a lot of mechanical problems to solve in my playing. Which means you probably shouldn’t listen to me if I give you advice on your playing
I am regularly joining jam sessions with guitarists of different levels. Some of them play only with their fingers, others have been using the pick for a long time but know nothing about the CtC stuff, others are complete beginners.
During warmup, I usually play some of my favorite 2WPS exercises, DWPS or UWPS exercices. This attracted the attention of some of my fellow players. But I have always had some doubts about introducing CtC material to those who never used the pick or to new players.
And here I ask for your guidance. I have always thought that we should give the player first the chance to intuitively solve these mechanical problems. I am thinking that introducing the CtC concepts from the beginning could limit him musically.
So what do you guys think? Will the CtC findings give new players (or new pickers) a head start? Or will it limit their potential you know, if they were meant to become of the greats who figured out the challenges intuitively?
