Just a friendly little refresher from the Vai.com Message Board Rules and Guidelines:
PROHIBITED TYPE OF BEHAVIOUR/DECORUM:

- Incoherent messages, littered with spelling errors and formatting errors.
Please spend a little extra time constructing a coherent post. What's the point of posting when you make no sense? ;)

No, I was referring to the author of that cyberfret article in my previous post... he's right about the whole tension thing, but as far as how to correct it, he's pretty much talking out of his butt.

You're right - ignore the post. It's not proper English.

Yeah - that site reminded me of those tree-hugging "you can be one with the Great forest spirit!" 'self help' books

Then I pointed and laughed. With my light finger, obviously.

seriously, there is quite some truth in that article. The more you tense up, the more you restrict your mobility. The whole flutter)thing is just to make you aware how it feels to have completely relaxed fingers.
Completely relaxed = more mobility = more speed
