“Hands Without Shadows” is incredibly difficult, will challenge you to your limits, and at times will be frustrating to master.
So, why accept this challenge? Because it’s incredibly difficult, will challenge you to your limits, and at times will be frustrating to master. As Nietzsche explained, “What doesn’t kill you only serves to make you stronger.”
When you learn an extremely challenging lick, riff, technique or entire song every technique that you already know will become easier and more fluid. Nothing that you can learn on guitar is more challenging than a Michael Angelo Batio masterpiece. This is a huge step forward to guitar mastery.
The challenge of learning to play “Hands Without Shadows” is an opportunity for all guitarists. How often do you have a chance to play a rock masterpiece that was actually transcribed by the original guitarist? As far as I know, pretty much never.
If you’re an intermediate player, you’re not going to be able to play this song at tempo for awhile. So what? You need this challenge to move forward with your own technique. First, learn “Hands Without Shadows” at a comfortable tempo. As time passes gradually increase speed until you’re able to play it at MAB warp speed. You may never develop his amazing technique and speed but you can still move toward that goal and you may actually achieve the dream.
