Cheers mate, thanks again! :yesway:Cheers, it's a J Custom 7 I got off Trademe (like New Zealand Ebay) and it just feels like home. I grew up with Ibanez and there's something about the necks which I just bond with. It's a great top too, just a shame the previous owner put a few dings in it, grrr!
I'll be straight up, I don't have any specific legato practice whatsoever. In the beginning I did lots of drills to build endurance and strength, as well as getting my fingers used to the patterns you can encounter, but that was about 14 years ago now. I just learn other people's lines as legato practice now. Great examples are Holdsy of course, Petrucci, and Greg Howe. If you just learn a few of their things and practice them the technique comes in a musical way instead of a 'banging up and down scales' way like a lot of legato players seem to.
With Holdsy in particular, he has 'moves' like everyone else, not licks per say but varieties on certain hand movement themes. If you learn a few of his things you can learn new ones pretty fast. When I was learning this tune I practiced it about 20 mins a day for a month or so, that was it I think.
Thanks a lot, man! :metal:Thanks man, I checked out your Youtube channel, some nice playing on there! I saw the early J custom too, it's like the older sister of mine! They really are great instruments, I bought it just for the need of having a guitar out in New Zealand, but I'm going to keep it for sure.
