marty D How can they play that fast? (73* d) RE: How can they play that fast? 30 Sep 01

Hey, great advice. Thanks.

Thanks for the pm. J. As I mentioned a couple of times before, I don't get on Mudcat as often as I'd like because number one daughter OWNS the computer 24/7. I go next door to my neighbour's and bribe him to let me use it!

The heavy pick idea just didn't work for me, and I know that some fast pickers use quite a light one. I use a Dunlop .88.

Increasing the speed really gradually sounds like a good idea. Maybe I'll get one of those keyboard-drum machines, I've never been comfortable with a metrinome. Too quiet.

Keeping in mind that when I first asked for help on mudcat a couple of years ago I wasn't much of a player but thanks to some great suggestions..oh, and finally getting motivated.. I can pick a bit now. Nothing fancy, but songs like Wildwood Flower, Union Maid, Wooden heart, and slowish versions of John Hardy and Beaumont Rag.

It's getting there.
