Post Practice Strategy / File Exchange Proposal
I create little practice loops in Guitar Pro and then use a program called SnapZ pro ( a screen capture utility) to make a little video.

The videos are usually about 1 to 5 minutes long.

I put them in itunes and create little playlists like whole tone runs, harmonic minor licks, Paul Gilbert licks, Shawn Lane licks, etc.

This saves me a lot of time opening files or fumbling around for paper. It also helps me organize my practice time more efficiently.

I also compress some of the files using a program called iSquint. This allows the files to be played on my iPod nano. I take it to work and practice during my lunch break.

I'm mentioning all of this for a couple of reasons. First, other people might find this strategy for practicing useful.

Second, if a bunch of us were to create say 5 files a week we could get a pretty cool exchange thing going.

If anyone is interested in these sorts of files pm me or email me- [email protected].

I can send you a sampling of files or you can request a specific type of file eg. tapping, sweep picking, economy picking, etc.
