I have been playing guitar for roughly 18 years. When I was a teenager I picked one up and learned more in those first six months then I ever have since. I am almost entirely self taught and to be honest there were a lot of up a downs with my playing as life became a little more complex. I wound up binge watching cracking the code on youtube and something floored me. In the beginning I naturally held my pick at the downward angle as shown in the video, but this, along with many other things were always “corrected” when I sought out any advice and as I result I spent about 10 years earnestly trying to unlearn it. So here I am now.
Here is a video of me improvising to a random youtube video. While I have been to few jams, improvising on the fly was always something that I never felt comfortable with. I hope that I can change this, and in someways I feel like I already am thanks the lessons on this site. Any ways feel free to post an constructive criticism/ advice or anything that you might feel is relatable.
