    Before you can play fast, you have to be able to hear it loud fast and clear!

    Can I have your mail ID. I wanted to reserve a slot for the Video Lesson.

    Great inspiration! I love that part, if you actually hear Happy Birthday in the middle of your solo, then play it! I too have practised a shitload of scales, arpeggios etc., and got the sense that I missed something. The melody! So now I'm practising at an ultra-slow tempo, only playing what I hear beforehand. It's extremely hard, but it really feels like I'm 'singing through the guitar' 🙂

    Ahaha! Right. (-:
    Well, let's say that playing a lot on the same tune / chord progression / scale / arpeggio and being able to HEAR all of which you're doing is a good starting point. A very precise exercise is "DONT play unless your really hear it beforehand". This is extremely hard to do, though.

    I don't know! … but what I DO know though, is that I'm not 100% clear, concise and to-the-point in this video … lack of preparation perhaps. I wanted to give it a feel of "discussing this with a friend sitting at a bar". (-:
