Letting your fingers fly on the fretboard

Recommended Posts

When I'm just toy as'n around on the guitar, I think it is true that I'm at the point where my fingers just let loose and do the speaking effortlessly.

Any of you feel this way.

Yes Sir, sometimes when you drop into the zone it all just happens. Planetalk has helped me with this!

windsong,

Jazz players call this noodling around. I believe it has inspired a lot of creativity in their music. As Spider said, when your "into the zone it all just happens".

Yes, In The Zone is where all guitarists wanna be...whatever they may call it! ^_^

HENDRIX couldn't find The Zone at the Isle of Wight, but he surely tried. That's why (IMHO) he threw his guitar down in disgust at the end of his set. :(

To show I'm not being a sourpuss...HENDRIX's best rendition of Red House was at a concert in Stockholm, where he played what appears to be a triple pickup Gibson SG. Compare that to JIMI's rendition at Wight, and you'l hear the difference.

Nope, never happened. I doubt if I will ever be good enough for it to happen.

The only way my fingers will "let loose" is for them to fall off my hands. :hurt:

Hey, ya never know. Determination, Dedication, Desire. I simply lost the spark as the new mil approached. Didn't wanna be a scales bot, so I stopped playing. Now I'm gradually getting going again. Hope it'll be fun... :whistling

I this with left AND right hand. Sometimes while holding the acoustic I will fret a familiar chord progression while letting my right hand pick a different pattern over it.

Stairway to Heaven is interesting sped up or played with a Reggae Beat!
