: Larry Carlton practice tip

Just in case anybody missed this on GuitarSquid...
I'm not a jazz kinda guy at all, pretty much just straight up blues. Don't even care much for the "modern" blues 'cause of all that jazz stuff mixed in. But there's no denying Larry Carlton's talent and this little practice tip seems pretty cool no matter where your taste might lie.

Good tip for sure. Check his "knuckle chords" too... that's just insane. I can't do that.

Yeah, tried that one - made my hand hurt and I didn't even come close.

 It's hard, but it's cool to be able to do that. I have one chord I use where I do something simular. I just never thought of it as a "knuckle chord".

funny the techniques we develop because there is a need.  while some folks play an E bar chord at the
7th fret with all 4 fingers, i do it with 2 because my  ring finger can go inside out.
