Guthrie Govan, Marco Sfogli, Daniele Gottardo: discuss practice regimes

"I personally believe that guitarists should practice with each type of guitar sound. Or at least with every guitar sound they might need for the style, or styles, musical sounding. Using an ultra clean sound musicians are encouraged to create a solid sound, and while this helps to improve the accuracy and precision techniques such as pull-offs, but practicing with a very distorted sound you are forced to put the maximum concentration in stopping the strings unused, which is translates in having a clean technique in particular the hand with the plectum. other hand use a crunch sound, a sort of cross between the two listed above, can help the guitarist to work carefully on the dynamics. But ultimately, everything is useful and beneficial. The most important thing is to make sure that whatever we're studying it and whatever you're doing is simply playing well! "  more translated
