How I did it: It took me at least two years since I started taking guitar seriously. Eventually I got enough confidence from playing live, and with the support of a great band, I could start experimenting with solos. I am now starting to solo somewhat frequently. Read how I did it…
How I did it: I had an excellent supervisor, and started out small. I read heaps of papers and my first paper was purely on reviewing existing approaches. I have now published two papers (well, conference papers), and will hopefully have more in the next year :-) Read how I did it…
I did it… but holy crap, talk about a marathon! Half of the people we did it with was asleep by the end. We started around noon and ended at 1am.
Once you do it once, you can’t really watch them again for another six months or more… lol.
But you really feel the epicness of the entire series.
