Que es fretting form?
And! What do we do about it!
Let’s form a mob!
Pretty sure thumb over is Somehow “Incorrect “ has been totally debunked!
Do you mean it appears the guitarist is using more of the pad of the finger than the tips to fret?
^^^ sorry, can't help. My pitchfork is out for repair and setup.
I didn’t even look for a thumb as I always play with thumb over so I don’t look for it although in a classical sense I’ve always heard your thumb is supposed to rest on the back of the neck
Classical on a strat?
Ummm that’s not classical...
I started on classical...
Not that classical can’t be played on a steel string, just different styles, not so much right vrs wrong
Yes, if one is playing classical guitar, the guitarist is using poor form. I will discuss that with him when I replace him in that orchestra....
Poor fretting form maybe but the wear on the fretboard suggests that he gets a bit of work
If you're consistently driving a golf 300 yards off the tee with accuracy and some expert criticizes your swing, well...we all know who's right and who's wrong.
It's really that simple.
So, I'm wondering what it's like to be in an orchestra and have the title The Guy With Two Boards.
If it's comfortable to the player, and it sounds good, then it's right for him/her. Unorthodox, (maybe), but technique is an individual thing. I agree it's not taught that way, but that doesn't make it wrong, or bad.
That's what I thought at first but then I noticed the wear pattern on the neck and where the arm rests is the same as a 50s Road Worn strat.
I see a guy who is playing a focused part using the technique he feels will produce a perfect performance for that part. In this case, he's playing strict position guitar and laying his fingers flat over unused strings to prevent extraneous sounds or tones.
If this orchestra were playing a tribute to George Clinton, you'd see this guitarist using a completely different technique, I'd wager.
Don't know about fretwork, ... but I'd like a wah-wah like that.
If your forehead gets in the way, it's bad form.
Fretting form don't mean much if you nail the parts and sound great.
He sounded like he never heard the piece and assumed sheet music carried the spirit on the pages?
Lousy sound, no feeling or emphasis, I think his guitar has graph tech plastic saddles and his strings are five years old.
Plus maybe his frets are grooved and his action is too high but not because he's one of those manly mans men, just apathy.
Ouch sorry nope I'm not currently making a living in orchestra pits round the world!
This guy was a bit nervous since, as you can see at about 1 minute in, his predecessor was hanged for sweep picking.
Great opening line for a trained singer to sing...
whaa whaa whhaa...
There's that, but in a few places his fingers come down on either more than one string, or in the middle of the fret space (as opposed to up against the back of the fret).
He looks so enthused doing Two Boards. Though, to be fair, he starts the whole thing off with the kettle drums.
Yep. And you don't get a good look at the man himself but his hands look like young man hands. Don't know if you can put that much wear on a guitar before age 30. Correct me if I'm wrong- perhaps I don't play enough because I haven't done that to any of mine.
Btw, my title of this thread was toadilly tongue in cheek. I absolutely love this performance.
