There you go. That should be pretty close.


I THINK the reason it's hard to tell what he is doing is because he is popping with his middle finger and not his index. Watch him closely.


Edit: I will make another quick video because it's possible that he is double thumbing the thumb part. So I can show you that.

Ok, this is how it would be played with a double thumb. I had to increase the brightness of the video, so it may look a little off.

 

I tried to change my hand position closer to what his is what is REALLY awkward for me, but hopefully makes it easier to see what he is doing.

 

I think in at least one section (If not the whole video) he is doing some double thumb and this is how it's done. If you can't play double thumb, refer to the first video as there is no real need for it.

Ok, I finished the second video... but it's like 16 minutes long and almost 100 megs. Any suggestions? I can't host it all myself, it will kill the bandwidth. Yourtube wont hold it because it's too long. I can try Myspace, but myspace tends to be slow.

 

I could compress it more, but I think it needs to be reasonably high quality so people can see what is happening.

No ideas here, other than maybe splitting the video into separate pieces for those other sites? That way you can keep the quality up and the file size down.

Do you ever double thumb, or are you able to get all the speed you need just smacking the strings like in the first video? I find it really hard/awkward to try to get good speed without double thumbing.

I do double thumb however it's gone downhill quite a bit because I prefer the thumb pop and that is how my style has evolved.

 

But I have no problem with the speed in the first video. Actually, it's a bit slow...

I tried both methods, the first one is definatly more "natural" to me and came a lot easier. The double thumb is going to take some work, but based on your two videos I am not sure it's even worth it since the first technique just feels better to me.

 

 

Amazing how simple this is when it gets broken down like this...!

Video 2 is being posted, the first part is up, the second part will be up as soon as I am done uploading it.

 

Any requests for information, more details, specific things to be addressed in the next video, etc, can be posted here.
