I'm creating a non shitty replacement for Guitar Pro from the ground up. In Java. It's going to be called DeComposed, or something along those lines. Keep your eyes peeled for it.

Learning to play an F root 4 is a fucking bitch. I'm making progress, but whomever thought of it, just go fuck yourself twice.

I am totally shitting the bed on House of the Rising Sun. However, my guitar teacher started showing me In the Hall of the Mountain King tonight and that one is some mercifully easy progress :lol:

Might be making some progress with this whole focal dystonia thing...

If it doesn't let up though, I'm going to start playing left handed. I actually am left handed, so I should be at an advantage should I choose to actually do it.

Also I have become enamored with death metal guitar playing. So many ways you can make an electric guitar sound like a pile of rotting carcasses. It's a ton of fun, you get to explore all sorts of atonal nonsense. And nonsense techniques, at that. I do this thing where I kind of slice the pick back and forth across the string, for example. Sounds great, sounds gross, it rules.

It's interesting. I definitely have either focal dystonia, carpal tunnel, or legitimate nerve damage in my left hand. I chalk it up to years of unmitigated Braveboard trolling and internet pornography, obviously.

But it's affecting my playing in a really cool way. It's giving me focus. I spend less time trying to prove I can play faster than Jason Becker on meth and more time crafting how chunky my downpicking is, how interesting my riffs are, how listenable my music is. In a weird sort of way, it's an improvement on the whole. I've found workarounds for flashiness, many of which I borrowed from stuff death metal guitarists do - that by itself has been a ton of fun.

Honestly, I'm weirdly happy with having a gimped up left hand?

After totally eating shit at my lesson two weeks ago, I've been making sure that doesn't happen again. Tonight marks two weeks straight where I've gone into the lesson with really noticeable progression from the week before. Never under estimate the motivation of not wanting to fuck up twice.
