Slow picking your way to a more accurate right hand

Hey fellow acoustic lovers,
If you finger style, if you flatpick and even if you just play rhythm, you must know how important it is to play slow with a metronome and develop muscle memory that is steady and ready to move up to a faster tempo. Now I must point out that in my 24 years of being a professional musician, that playing fast is definitely over rated, but is nice to have it in the gun belt when you need it.

Just a note of thought.

Hi Brad,, Takamine, great guitars. Several years ago must have tried at least 20 guitars ,, took me months before I found the one that suited ,, a Sante Fe with the Digital processor.. took it to a good Luthier friend to get it set for me. Fantastic Guitar

Hey BRad still do clinics for Takamine? I got a real nice Tak as a keyman, sort of like an endorsee, but not really.

I saw you about a year ago with Sam Bush at the Kent Stage and it was one of those perfomances that made me want to remember your name.
