Now is the moment to stop wasting time and money and get the Ultimate Picking Program
As one of the fastest guitarists in the world I'm often asked how I do it. My general answer is that there are no real shortcuts and it takes a few years of hard work by practicing using the proper techniques and focus to do what I do.
I designed a list of exercises for myself that would just focus on picking. These exercises cover every fundamental physical motion and combination of motions you would ever encounter. After all these years, I wanted to really test myself and see what I had the most trouble playing so that I could focus on it to save myself from wasting time practicing anything I was already good enough at.
I then realized that there would need to be a way to make sense of the differences between certain exercises so I could compare them properly. You can't just base it off of tempo. There are some physics to take into account and a bunch of other variables that can get very confusing really quickly. Long story short, after many hours, very large math formulas and testing, I came up with a method to accurately judge the exercises to really discover what I had the most trouble with. After three days of practicing my exercises and performing my math, there were a few that jumped out as clear issues and it made me take a good look into the reason I was having so much trouble on these specific exercises.
A light bulb went off. I bet other people would also have issues in their playing that they never knew about. I know that because this covers every motion and combination of motions you can make it will uncover every issue any player has with their picking. I knew that people wouldn't want to perform calculations like I was. I also knew I would not want to do it all semi-manually for much longer.
This is when I decided to make a program that would automate everything and act as an A.I. guitar teacher. About a year later and many months of programming, video recording and video editing, I present to you...
I honestly can't see anyone ever needing to make another picking instructional again. I consider this a shortcut because it will save you time. You will not only have every picking exercise a human can perform but it will only tell you to practice the ones you need to practice. This is my elegant solution to the trouble of practicing guitar. While the practicing is still up to you and your own hard work, I feel that my program makes it a much more direct path to success without wasting any time.
