  2. Need sight reading resource for Mick Goodrick's 'The Advancing Guitarist'

    Need a good sight reading resource or two to help me get through Goodrick's book. I've got a couple of beginner method books from a couple decades ago that show where the notes are on the staff, but...

    Good point. I found that out the hard way at my first few open jam nights years ago. Also, at some point, shredders have to realize that they have to learn rhythm, and that's what they'll be...

    There are way too many cheesy instrumental fusion shredders these days who just sit there and "shred" mindlessly over a backing track. No melody, no feeling, no respect to the background rhythm. ...

    0:45 in the video, but he's using a different, easier to play voicing than the tablature I have. You can see he's barred at the 6th or 7th fret with his index. I've been playing this and it sounds...

    We can't be watching the same vid if you can see that kind of detail. It's pretty blurry. Could be either one....Tab books aren't always correct either. He's been known to change his fingerings...

    It doesn't look like he used that voicing in the vid I posted.

    Hmmm, I dunno. I tried it and it doesn't have the same 'chime' you get when you play the F# on the high E with the C# and F on the B and G strings IMHO. While we're at it, how about this next riff:...

    Hi Jon, thanks for the reply. I've been playing it with this voicing and it sounds pretty close:

    Well, I half agree with you...I think practicing along with a drummer, sequencer, CD player, radio etc, will achieve the same result. Given that speed is a by-product of accuracy, I think that...

    I think they are great for breaking away from the predictable sound of even noted rhythms. Whenever I encounter them, I just use a mnemonic device like "aborigine" for 5's and "peanut butter...

    Agreed. I'm a huge Guthrie fan and have both of his books. Petrucci's exercises are good for your technique, but some of the exercises are so bland and boring, I never spent more than a day or two...
