    Descending into a downward spiral of not picking is a bad habit. You gotta pick Rick!…nah you’re literally one of the best guitarists I’ve ever heard. And I’ve heard a lot. Was listening to some Robert Johnson today. I know my shit. And you sir, are the shit.

    Way easier to talk about it… than actually DO IT.

    Are hammer-ons from nowhere
    a tiny bit 'easier' on a
    on a varnished fretboard?
    For some reason, maybe subconsciously? i find maple fretboard easier than rosewood to achieve descending legato with hammer-ons
    ?
    [EVH comes to mind]
    Descending Legato is very difficult to get smooth.
    Cheers

    Do you have any tutorials on how to do Hammer Ons from Nowhere and any exercises to develop that technique?

    My hand just doesn't agree with that first E-A extension at that speed…

    How come it’s the Strat always now? No probs but it’s interesting because I have been reaching the same conclusion.

    Does anyone know good isolation exercises for the picking hand? My legato has come a long way and my fretting hand has built up endurance, but when I bring my right hand into the mix it just doesn't feel right. Not really any pain, just jittery, and my other fingers (the ones not holding the pick) quickly tense up.

    Rick Graham … I am from Brazil and I am very much your fan and I would like to know if you could make your studies available in pdf so that I can study. Congratulations on your work.

    Hey Rick, just wondering how you deal with raw, tender and painful fingertips? Just getting back into guitar after 10 years and its damn painful, lol.
