Topic: Joe's "Guitar School" section in Guitar One - April '07
Have any guitarists here actually tried playing any of Joe's examples in this Guitar School section? I haven't actually viewed or listened to any of them, I was just reading the standard notation and tablature, most of it came easy to me, but I have to admit that I was challenged with Figs. 1 and 2.
In order to execute the first finger bends and bending/sliding combinations in Figure 1, I had to grab one of my guitars with 10s (I usually use 11s and I still use heavy bottoms on my strats set up with 10s--for tone) on it and tune down a half step for fear of developing tendonitis!
I consider myself a pretty descent guitarist, but this kicked my butt! Please tell me I'm not the only one . . .
We should have a support group section here for people trying to learn his music
