I actually did better with my eyes closed, just listening for the sound of the sheep running.

Of course guitar.

Is this possably linked to why some people are fast and some are slow?

Is it possible to train that part of our brain?

I never tested my reaction time and I think this silly little game does just that.

I was a sluggish snail the first time, bobbing bobcat the second, then quit. But I just got up.... :drool

Don't you think reaction time is important??



I think it's very important. That's why sheer picking velocity has never been a focus for me. There's a difference between quickness and speed, and I think quickness is more important. It's not something you practice by running the same scales over and over again, it's something you can only practice by putting yourself into situations where you don't know what to expect.


But no, I don't think this came will help you much. It's more about getting the feel of the mouse down. I think quickness is both a mental and physical thing, and you need to practice in context. For instance, there's a million kids out there with incredible hand-eye coordination from playing video games for hours, but put them on a basketball court and it doesn't translate.

No, I don't think so at all. For a whole slew of reasons.

I think it's probably much more important for your driving than your guitar playing.

You may be right, I don't know.

Driving is action/reaction

Playing is action???

Not for me- playing is at least 50% reaction, and depending on the context could be 99% reaction. That's why I don't like playing to backing tracks, they don't react back.

I think the playing/driving analogy is perfect- when you're driving you have a destination and several ways to get there, but how fast you go, what lights you make, and how you may alter your course are all about reaction.
