    I dig the economy of motion and lack of tension of your technique - it makes it look effortless. I'm working a lot on that myself.

    Thank you for the kind words! I really worked on that motion economy thing for a very long time :)

    I used to rehearse in front of a mirror so I could see what my hands looked like.

    Ha! Good tip and I do that as well. My wife caught me once and I felt kind of silly. She knows I'm not a narcissist though and understood my explanation of doing it for constructive purposes.

    I do enjoy watching my hands though if I am digging my playing - guilty pleasure or maybe it is a streak of narcissism after all? Interesting... :D

    I used to also practice very close to a flat surface(like a table edge) so that my hands could not move far from the fretboard. I actually hate watching myself play in videos, I guess I am my own worse critic. Actually there are guys on forums and YT that hate me more than I do, lol.

    Another great tip, thanks! And it's just my hands that I like to watch - not my face and all the spastic chimp expressions I make, lol. Totally with ya on being one's own worst critic.

    At least you're brave enough to put yourself out there and have the talent to back it all up. Haters gonna hate - keep on sharing because so many others dig it.

    Mark, how does standing near the table edge help your playing... I also hate to see myself staring at the fretboard the whole show.

    At home when I was younger we had a table that had a wide edge and it was the perfect height if I sat in front of it. It wasn't very comfortable but it forced me to keep my fingers from flying off the fretboard.
