    Re: Picking faster?

    IMO playing faster has mostly to do with relaxing and not straining. When you do that you have opposing muscle groups working against each other. Practice in short bursts with short relaxation in...

    Re: focus/concentration

    I keep in mind short, medium and long term goals when "practicing". When "playing", I play what every strikes my fancy at that moment.

  20. Re: the Allan Holdsworth guitar approach on mandolin

    I believe improvisation is easier for most folks when we think about less.

    Anything that occurs in a key I think that key only. Because the chords CMaj7 Dm7 Em7 FMaj7 G7 Em7 F#m7b5 are derived...
