I would consider myself as an intermediate to advanced guitarist. I listen to all sorts of music but some of my favourite artists include Robben Ford, Robert Cray, Frank Zappa etc. I love the technique and emotion of guys like Guthrie Govan and Alex Hutchings. They can play fast, slow, in difference styles, time signatures etc etc. They have full control over there instrument, not the other way round. If we take Guthrie, for example, I know he incorporates all sorts of techniques into his playing. These include legato, alternate picking, hybrid picking, double stops, and all sorts of bends, to name a few. I would love my playing to progress to this level. I'm sure it's everyone's dream to be able to play like the guitarist they hail as their hero, but I'm wondering if anyone has any advice on how to progress to this next level? Focusing particularly on technique what tips do you guys have if any? Thanks.
