    My entry for Jared Dines Shred Collab

    I wrote and learned this solo this week to submit for Jared Dines Shred collab. Unfortunately I was not chosen to be in the top 20, but I pushed my playing on this one. I would love my synner community to hear it and give feedback. Papa and Syn, hope you guys dig it too.

    Anxiety while… choosing music?

    So this has been something on my mind for a long time. Lately I haven’t been able to truly expand my listening habits. I’m worried I’m “listening to the wrong thing” to get to be the best guitarist/musician I can be, so I default to albums I know and love but never find new music. It has led to...

    Dealing with anxiety and lack of motivation

    I am in the same boat right now. I’m trying hard to push through it and trying to be more disciplined, as it is a stoic lesson that motivation is temporary, but discipline creates results.

    Can I buy you boys a beer?

    Hey Syn and Papa Gates, I am in Huntington Beach for the next week and a half for NAMM and vacation, and I would love to talk guitar and music with you guys and buy you a beer or a shot of Ardbeg. If you have time, let me know. I’ll meet you at Johnnys! Forgive me if I’m overstepping, but you...

    How to shred?

    There are some simple patterns within each scale shape that you can use to go faster on the fretboard, usually without much motion. One example would be taking three notes on one string then moving to the string above or below in a triplet pattern. More of a flashy trick, but sounds pretty cool...

    Sweep and Economy Exercise

    I wanted to share this lick I can up with yesterday! Mostly it is an arpeggio exercise in A minor for a ii-V-i but I added in a small economy picking part to work on switching picking patterns. Let me know if you would like more explanation! What do you think of it?

    Stevie Wonder's Songs In The Key Of Life. It is the best soulful collection. Stevie's voice is amazing in it and the grooves are infectious and the melodies are so strong!

    Legato I

    That makes sense! I have been trying to work on breathing while playing. I definitely am guilty that I forget to breathe because I am so focused on what I’m learning!
