Re: Jamie Andreas classical excellent- rock NOT

It is quite a coincidence, but we just got this post at the GuitarPrincples forum, which pretty much says it all in terms of the discussion here.

Re: Good Way to Practice Chord Changes

Hi Fred, I watched the video. I am not sure if you are saying that you have solved the problem by watching the video. If you have, great. However, from what I see, it seems that Dave is showing you what needs to be done, but is not giving you a way of becoming able to do it other than "trying it" an...

Re: Good Way to Practice Chord Changes
