  • We often are trying to squeeze one more thing into an already full life-to say nothing of a day. Schedule should be #6. Put it in your calendar. Make time, set a time, don’t let anything displace that time. Avoid excuses for procrastination.

  • Something else: Dick Dale, was a lefty, not that interesting, until you know the he played a standard guitar, with standard stringing, so his high strings and low strings were switched. So his speed came from the fact that it was all his wrist, he didn't move his arm at all.

  • I wanted to learn inline skating since 2017, but despite being shy as fuck I couldn't tell my parents, not until a week ago. (Progress finally) Now since I dropped out of my high technical school to study something less mind puzzling, because I discovered that I have ADHD surprisingly (Thanks Dad!), I can't find an apprenticeship I need to enroll in this new school. Either I suck at the life, or the life is screwing me up. Idk. PS: It took me 30 minutes to write this comment since I pressed the TAB key 3 times and I almost quitted writing it. PS NR.2: I had diarrhea in the middle of writing it.

  • If you're socially anxious and would rather swallow a pinecone than dissapoint someone, tell someone "Im gonna start doing ,(thing), so expect to see me do it." Telling them that you'll show them helps.

  • Mike you will never read this comment but i saw this video 1 year ago and i told myself: come on i dont need that video i never quit. 1 month later i quit my school basketball team because the training was too hard. 2 months after this i joined a less better team to just get started. I became one of the best in the team so i left and fortunately they accepted me back. IN 3 months i am leaving from greece to go play for a big college team in calabassas in my dream university. What i want to say is never give up on your dreams it takes a lot of hard work to succeed but at the end of the day it is totally worth it guys. DONT QUIT YOU BLOODY LOSER

  • I have a tip for you Mike I noticed that when playing this song you pick by swinging your whole arm and keeping your hand rigid. When I learnt to play this I found that resting the edge of your hand on the bridge and pivoting your wrist can save energy and allow you to get up to speed with less effort. This worked for me but hey, we all have different methods!! 👍👍
