    Like anything, the best way to learn is to practice. Like Kypfer says, the act of translating this will help you learn to read.

    Sweet. So do you now have a full set of Cocobolos?

    I’d buy it again is a pretty good review. I bought another (and another?) is an even better review!

    I keep my nails too short to use Alaskas, but I've used other similarish plastic finger picks. I don't know that they'd help a lot for Peter's class....

    Not sure which one exactly you're looking at. My Enya X1 Soprano has a solid headstock (looks like mahogany + a koa-ish top plate), but it's only 7/16" thick. Shaving a half inch off would be...

    It depends a lot on what you mean by rocking out. If you want heavy distortion then go with steel strings.

    If you want a RISA (a good choice, though far from the only choice) Mim has a couple of...

    Shouldn't bury focusing on a challenging song (#5) in the middle. As a really good and realistic idea it should be first or last.

    Changing the tunings (#3 and #8) are also decently reasonable...

    My guess is that's a half note to match the chord in the standard notation. That bar looks like it's in 4/4, so there are four beats: hold the first (circled) F chord for two beats, one beat for the...
