Hasn't been a post in this section for some time, so I'll add something... Fired up Section One of 52RF (no guitar in hand). "Man, this stuff is *really* basic", I thought. Way below the level I should be starting at. Still, I figured it couldn't hurt to have a little tune up on the basics, so I continued to just watch the first 16 examples, without bothering to touch a guitar. "Finally", we get to Example 17, where Griff strings a variety of those basics techniques together through a full verse. I grab my guitar here, just to make sure I can follow along easily before skipping on to section 2.... and low and behold, I have trouble duplicating what Griff plays! Oh, I'll work it out in short order, cause it is very basic. But the fact that I can't readily mirror these simple examples on a first or second pass is a bit of an eye opener (me, a guy who some time ago managed a decent rendition of the solo for Skynard's "The Breeze"). This experience demonstrates something important about fundamental skills training... ya shouldn't skip it!
