    Put your playing into words.

    Also, it doesn't need to be techniques, it can be knowledge and stuff you use to improve.

    My keywoards would be:

    fingerstyle, tapping, slapping, metronome, basic theory, scales

    but most important: I'm practicing!

    So let's hear yours!

    I cant wait 'til i can add fretless to my list :p

    Why Scud? Because my playing is offensive, innacurate, requires an hour to get up to snuff, and keeps popping up in places you need it the least, destroying the hard work of others.
