My, oh my, how my guitar lessons have humbled me.

I have learned thus far that

  • I don't hold the pick properly and I've been using the wrong thickness of pick
  • I don't grasp the neck properly
  • My strumming hand is too "active" and I rest the fat of my hand on the pickguard
  • I tend to avoid using my fretting pinky
  • My alternate picking sucks
