i learned the basics and scales before i found the FFcP
i did my own version of FFcP before i found it.
it wasnt quite the same though.
i messed with FFcP a little here and there, but figured i didnt need to mess with it since i was already messing with alot of other techs to get more familiar with the fret board.....
so what im getting at is this...
i noticed that the FFcP system does something that no other technique ive been practicing does. it really smooths out your solos, instead of jumping thorough positions or sounding "scaley" you have the ability to move to a higher set of notes without changing the voice of the solo so much, unless you want to.
i dont know if i did the thought i have justice, but its really a great thing.
i have to emphasize the fact that it really smooths out the solos and melodic ideas, a more subtle way of moving into a higher note range or lower for that matter.
anyone whose ever just messed with it, i reccomend giving it a go again and using it in your playing with those thoughts in mind, to smooth it out, and be less jumpy or abrupt when moving a melody or melodic idea around.
good work ted!
