      I hadn't even known about the film, but when I saw that Philip Seymour Hoffman's was in it, I definitely added it to the "soon" list. Thanks.

      I'll have to dig-up "Synecdoche, New York". I may have to watch that while on a business trip. We don't get much time for "art films" right now. Definitely as the kids get older.

      Are you "The Dumpling Guy" to SW's "Mr. Big Noodles"?

      I know I didn't get it when I was a teen, and my skills developed very unevenly, which sucks a lot.

      So, one suggestion is to really point it out in your book in the best possible way, describing what happens when you practice freely.

      Glad I had been of help, and thanks for the book.
      Keep up the awesome work and have a nice day :)

      I checked the phrasing part but didn't apply it on the instrument but I can tell you that it's one of the thing that made me move my butt to start using guitar pro and made my exercises and my backtracks.

      What I think it's hard for every self taught student, which includes students using books, is to understand how important the metronome is, how important to start slow is.

      It's a book that takes time, and it's a book that has "character".
      I mean, you sense that going through it will level you up, but you can't rush it.

      I think it's good that you don't treat the beginner as an idiot with insulting easy exercises, simplified theory.
      I think that even throwing hard exercises (obviously not including insane stretches) at the beginning of guitar study will help anyway if the student accepts to follow a metronome.

      It's...unusual.
      It's difficult both phisically and mentally, but never cheap or insurmountable.
      I wonder how many talented and skilled guitarists have the decree of independance in the movement of the two hands that you encourage to develop. :)
      Building strength and independance in the right hand is what I'm mostly looking for, so I find it great.
      For a guy that 99% of his life used a pick, moving right index, then thumb, etc...is something that I really have to apply to with patience, not to mention using all the fingers on a single string.
      It's like..."keep focused, keep focused, keep focused dude!"

      For now I'm still at the chromatic exercises and the table tapping, but I had a quick look at how you developed the book and the unusual path to start with no theory but just sense of music, then going onto scales, modes, chords...which I found very interesting.

      Was meant to write you a pm, to thank you about a book, and...well the thanks somehow ended up publically in the thread.
      I much appreciated it.
      It's giving me food for thought and cramps at the hands :lol:
      But it's good, hard things means there's still lot to learn.
      Lot to learn = lots of reasons to enjoy life :)

      Cheers for the eBook, after 2 years someones finally managed to force my brain to retain the knowledge of the Modes & Cycle of fifths. Excited to get onto chord theory, but going to try and master this single note stuff first :lol:

      :yesway:
