Just The Tip #2 – Gaining Speed With Clarity.

I’d like to extend a hearty thanks to all my readers for a great reception to my first edition of Just The Tip!

Many young players jump in feet first and tend to try to rush into the quick licks on their own, scanning the internet and absorbing tabs of their favorite virtuosos, but sounding sloppy when attempting the lines. Even after loads of repetition, these lines can feel like a novice trying to jump rope and whacking their shins leap after leap.

So lots of these completely autodidactic players get stuck in a rut and don’t know how to proceed.
