…a guitarlesson video has ramifications for non-guitarists…

so, let me tell ya, that exercise is more challenging than it looks. Many guitarists practice scales up and down the neck ’til they get really fast. But most don’t even talk about finger independence. Yes, it is frustrating like he mentions. There’s also a sense of humiliation when you realize you don’t have that much control over your own body. Granted, not nearly as bad as peeing your pants after too many beers, but still. I was shown a few things like this years ago by a classical guitarist. Now, Dave Mustaine has a spider chord technique that is used to make chord changes less noisy. It’s similar, yet different.

…now, the thing where he mentions the mind over matter/don’t get frustrated…

…I suppose that has applications well beyond guitar…
