Re: The truth about playing fast

Re: I can play some songs fast but now slow - is this a prob

Re: Steve Vai guitar techniques Berklee

Re: coated strings

hey Kyle,i've got elixirs on my RG now and they feel really good under my fingers,nice and smooth and you can slide into notes real easy and the tones pretty good as well,now i'll just wait to see how long they last compared to regular strings.

Re: Too scared to play slow ??
