  • If Django could do it with two fingers, I bet I can do it 50% faster with 3.

  • If you're practising this sitting down it ain't gonna get easier standing up....unless you strap your les paul way up high. Careful you don't get repetitive strain injury.

    I actually seldom if ever play sitting down ... it's the old metalhead in me

    Yes and it's took me two months of 10mins practice every night before it stopped hurting. Now try it legato style, add another month.

    It's an overly bent wrist on the fretting hand in the lower frets that's my problem with 3NPS.

    I have a 27 inch scale, which was too much for 3NPS and caused me to use a wrist split.

    You can see clearly the overly bent wrist on the fretting hand in this video of me playing a short bit of Cello.

    One thing I can recommend which was a revelation to me was investing £100 in to a Performaxe guitar rest.

    It felt expensive at the outset, but actually it’s less than people spend on pedals or even pickups.

    It positions the guitar at the perfect position and angle when sitting to allow your left hand to fall naturally and comfortably in place for practice.

    It was recommended to me by my teacher/Jedi Master (Martin Goulding) and I can 100% confirm that for me it was worth the price. 

    It has helped me increase my stamina during structure practice and taken a lot of strain and awkwardness out of my posture with the guitar on my lap.

    If you bought one and hated it, someone would buy it for practically the price of a new one because they are in short supply.
    I'm always looking for interesting USA Hamers for sale.

    At the moment I'm looking for:
    * Hamer Watson, SS2, Vintage S, T62.
    * Music Man Luke 1, Luke II

    Please drop me a message.
