Hey, I could really use some lessons. While I have made some progress over the years by examining my playing and trying some CTC methods, my playing is still far slower, far choppier, far less smooth, and far less musical than I’d like.
Does anyone know any teachers, preferably in person in the Boston-ish area, who are really into teaching how to improve this kind of technique?
Most teachers I’ve ever had who want to teach shredding simply give exercises to do, without taking an analytical approach to the fine grained details of what my current technique is and how to transform it. I’m sure that works great for some people, but for me, I feel like there are some major kinks in my technique that need to be worked out, and I get major walls early on that impede my progress. If it were a matter of just playing more technical exercises to get faster, it would have happened years ago.
